Hey guys, this is the final mix and comments of the hard rock collaboration, if you have any doubt about the comments you can ask me whatever you want. Thanks for your participation.

Dead Evil (0:00 -0:52) : Excelent Solo!!. Very on the Van Halen style. The only thing that I noted in your take is that you have to correct a little the beat duration that you´re playing, and the cleanness of your play in some other moments, because sometimes you tend to go a little forward and some notes misses, but I loved how you developed the idea of the solo. Congratulations!!

Jafomatic(0:52 - 1:40 : Sincerly, I loved how you developed the solo because it’s a combination of excelent good taste with some technique passages, what makes a very interesting melody. The only thing that you should work is the cleanness on your tapping lines (Try muting the strings you’re not using with your right hand as you do on the alternate picking technique). Excelent solo!!

Arctic1234 (1:40 – 2:28): A solo with more classic rock style. I liked the idea but you should work on some concepts that sometimes are underrated on the anxiety to get speed but are fundamental to get a nice tone like the vibrato and bendings. You must work the vibrato a lot to mechanise it and get a continous and clear sound (You can check out some slow-tempo songs by Joe Satriani or Vaughan things, to figure out how they still on the notes to get the vibrato) and for the bendings, I highly recommend always practice them knowing what note you want to reach and play it several times from one step or a half step before until reach the perfect tune of the note. In that way, you will correct those problems on the notes tune when bending.

Tyler T (2:28-3:16) : Excelent the syncopated idea of the two guitar. I was gratefully surprised. And the melodic idea you applied to the solo is great too. What you should work is the duration of the beats in some lines, specially of the alternate picking where you have some irregularities and some missed bendings tune. But these are thing that working with patience and metronome you will conquer. If you keep this way, I think that a great guitar future is awaiting for you wink.gif

Toroso (3:16-4:04) : In this case, it makes me feel like the solo never explodes. I mean, it begins and ends in a very similar way and it missed some melodic variations . Try to imagine a melody and then, execute it on the guitar. It’s an excelent way when composing solos.
On the other hand, you should work a little harder on your vibrato and on the bendings tune. (Check what I said to Artic1234). The positive of this is that you’re very close and it’s simply a matter of hard work and practice. Try to analize these things that are very important to sound properly and practice them. Let’s Work!!

Edguy (4:04-4:52)): Very nice beginning with the octaves idea and very nice melody. You should work more on the bendings tune, and try to pay more atenttion and work some of the lines that sound quite dirty. It makes that some notes seems to be missed. I highly recommend to take the lines out of the solo context and work them outside the song with the metronome, so you can develop more precition. You’re very Close!!

LeedBreak (4:52-5:40) : I liked a lot the melody, specially on the second part. I noted that the first part is more improvised than the second, but it have some very nice ideas. I’d like to hear you on a more structured solo. But in general concepts, working a little more some very small precition concept, It is very very good. Congratulations!!

Coloneldrew (5:40-6:28) : Knowing that your solo is improvised, there’s some great ideas. You have a very melodic and feeled style. As I said to Leedbreak, I’d like to hear you in a more structured solo to apreciate more what you can give. But, talking about this take, you should pay more attention to some imperfections that can be heard. But in general context, it’s really great. Congratulations and keep in that way!!

Audiopaal (6:28-7:!6) : Excelent melody!!. There’s not to much to critic. A great melodic work. The only I could mark is that, because of your melodic style, you have to work more on the vibrato. As I said before, listen to some Steve Ray Vaughan songs or the slow-tempo songs of Joe Satriani. You will see on them some different ways to apply the vibrato. This will help a lot to increase your tune!!

Sondre (7:16-8:04) : A very “Rocker” beginning that gaves a very good air to the solo. When the 2-guitars armonization begins is very well, but you have some mistakes in the final notes. You have to check out how you are armonizing. Remember that you must follow the scale that you’re using always and hold on the distance of the steps on both guitars. The bendings tune are good, but you have to work a lot on the alternate picking, at least in the frase that you’re playing in this take, because the line displaced a lot off the rhythm. But it sound pretty clear and that is great. Work on these things. I want to see how they sound on the next collab wink.gif


Dexxter (8:04-8:52) : Excelent!!. You caught perfectly the idea of the backing and the style. You made a very melodic and nice executed solo. Very nice bendings and great final. Congratulations, keep working on that way!!.


Marc_Maiden (8:52-9:42) : Very nice ideas and great execution. The only thing that I noted is that overuse the tremolo vibrato and, at playing it so many times, is like it lost the surprise. Maybe you should leave some spaces until use it again. On the technique side, it’s very nice played and the solo idea is great too. Maybe you should take some risks in some moment with a more speedy part to raise the solo, but that’s a matter of tastes. Congratulations for your work.Attached File  Hard_rock_collab_final_mix.mp3 ( 13.37MB ) Number of downloads: 267

You are right, it has been solucionated. The thing is that the take came slightly off beat, and because of that problem of time (that I already mentioned in the comments of the final mix) I didn´t realised in the mix because as you say its minimum. If you have another question please don´t doubt to ask.

Great collab everyone and thanks Santiago for some interesting comments. I hope to get on the next one you do. About half of all my collabs are written note for note and the other half are improvised. All depends on the extra time I have to get one done. dry.gif
