These it is the final mix and comments of the Funk rock collaboration, thanks to all for his participation

Dexxter (0:00 to 0:56): Excelent solo!!. A very nice show of a solo that could surely be part of a song, not only an example of virtuosity that doesn’t say too much. You have to know how adapt yourself to the different styles and the needs of the songs (Or the backing track in this case) and I think that you got the idea perfectly. There’s nothing to correct. I’m very glad and happy to see your progress

Toroso (0:56 to 1:49): The idea of working on a melodic pattern and variations on them as I think you tried to do in this solo is very good. You have to check out some things. In one hand, I’ve noted some out of tune of your guitar. It could be not only that your guitar is out of tune, could be also problems of calibration or very old strings. Technically, the idea es nice, but you have to work on your vibrato and bendings, because you don’t reach the exactly note you have to reach when bending. Working on these details, the solo would be much better

Leedbreak (1:49 to 2:41): Very nice the main idea and without rhythmic or technical problems. What I already noted is that the idea turns quite repetitive and sounds more like a singed part than a solo. As a beginning is perfecto, but maybe you should fly a little more along the solo and expand with other ideas and scales (as the ones I marked at the beggining of this collab). Although, the idea is perfect, and maybe, as you said, it was just a matter of time.

JVM (2:41 to 3:33): The first thing that I noted when I heard your solos is that you have to work more on the bendings tune and vibratos. The idea is good and your tone is very nice too, in the style of Santana or something similar, but you have to add some sustain I think. To sum up, you should work on what I marked previously and you would get a so much better result of the solo.

Staffy(3:33 to 5:19): The idea and the combination of scales is excelent. You catched the posibilites you can execute inside every chord and you combined them perfectly, reaching an equilibrium between disonant and chords note. Technically there’s not too much to correct, but you should mute a little more the strings when you’re playing with distortion, so those little noises when you’re playing don’t appear. Excelent work!!

Enforcer: Very nice job. I liked a lot how you applied techniques without leaving behind the feeling that these kind of styles requiered. Also, the tune of your bednings and Harmonics is very good. The only thing you should work is on vibrato (It has to be more marked on these “more rocker” styles).

Thanks Santiago,

Yeah my weakest point is still that vibrato... I just cant get it right, I play more aggressively and it passes the note aimed and becomes erratic, and I calm down a bit, it becomes less significant... I am really lost about that matter. I dont know what I will do...

Great collab by the way biggrin.gif

Thanks Santiago, yes, yes, always with the bendings and vibrato. More practice!

Actually the strings are new, but it is a new guitar and I replaced the 9s with 10s when I changed out the pups. Probably could use some adjustment to intonation. Weekend project.

Thanks for the collab, very nice backing. Maybe I'll post another take after I adjust my git. smile.gif

Thanks for the comments and effort. Not my best work, but very fun to play around with. I seem to be way too loud over the backing in the final mix mellow.gif

Thanks for your comments Santiago, and the collab, everyone had a great take I think smile.gif

I think actually my guitar may have been a bit out of tune when I recorded, I wasn't really thinking about it when I did, but I agree my bending and vibrato could use a bit more work! As far as my tone, hopefully soon I'll be recording collabs straight from my amp so the tone should improve a ton.
