My take:
it's not the best ever tongue.gif I thought this would be easy, I had a very nice first melody. But then it became hard to continue in a cool line.

I'm off for a winter holiday for a week, so I won't read your comment until that time wink.gif

BTW: thanks for the BT and comment Ivan!

Kaz:

Rhythm: by listening to the take, I god interested in rhythmical phrases a lot in the beginning of the take, they had nice idea and form, and the whole first half of your playing maintained interest. However, that started to drop a bit in the second part of the solo as very similar rhythmical figures were used towards the end as in the middle, and it started to sound a bit more repetitive. Your timing and overall execution of notes was very good tho, so that fixed the problem a bit. No mistakes and every note in it's place already means a lot. Having said that, I would really like to hear a bit more polished timing here. You know what you want and know how to do it, but some refinement would make it sound professional. Regarding structure, I think the problem is that you started to early with those rhythmic themes, and later run out of ideas. This is why more experienced players usually start the solo very simple, just couple of notes, and let if develop, let it get more complicated and faster later. This has big advantages: you give yourself time to think about where you want to go, give listened time to understand it as well (and ask himself where you will go), and just build up from start to end.
Phrasing: I definitely think you have a good sense for melody and phrase building, and this is definitely supported by a good note knowledge. You know the patterns, but more importantly, slowly acquiring a feel where the important notes are, so you can go to them effectively. However, I couldn't help noticing that your playing reflects lots of up & down phrases with occasional excursions to third/fourth interval jumps max. Having said that, I advise practicing more arpeggios and string skips over already familiar scalar patterns - these will greatly increase your playing range. One more thing I must notice is that the end of the solo was again not effective. Same story goes here as for the rhyhm part so I will keep the suggestion short - make room in the beginning, build a climax on the sweet spot, and finish effectively with a proper note, not sounding repetitively while maintaining fluidness of the melody.
Technique: Your technique is increasing very nicely. I like the fact you are using scalar triplet runs, and all the notes come out good. My advices to you is to pay more attention to the bends and vibratos now - they are good and you're getting there, but they need more precision and power. The muting techniques should be focused on as well during practice since there are some "bleeds" that spoil the impression.
Sound: Sound is good, smooth, but a bit buzzy on the top end. However, I notice improvement in sound from last collabs, the top end isn't so harsh anymore. Could be that you found the better preset, but I bet better tone control with fingers has something to do with it as well. I think the preset is good, but a bit less overdrive would sound better, and the level of delay could be a bit lower too. buzzy top end can be smoothed out with some good multiband limiter, so it softens up the peaks in the upper range.

Nice licks kaz! Very inspiring..

I found this track to be hard to play over.. I have scratched my head for weeks to come up with something to play..
I think what I came up with is a bit more "spacy" than yours kaz..

Hope you like it guys smile.gif

Rhythm: Excellent rhythmical phrases that really go well with this kind of a track. You experimented with lots of different note values and it sure pays off to do that, because you kept the solo interesting. One thing that I must compliment here as well is great timing, you are really nicely keeping beat and getting into the groove. The thing that bothered me slightly during listening is too frequent use of 16th notes towards the end of the take. It's great that those particular notes were used, but there are too many of them in the last part. Breaking off only two of them, and connecting them to eight would already sound interesting. Other than that I have nothing to add, I really like this part.
Phrasing: Good phrasing, and very careful and thoughtful playing. I think the call & response pairs were all very nice, but you seem to have trouble with the response one on some places. The landing notes are not that well used, and I believe this is because there is still some work to be done in scales & arpeggios department. Specially arpeggios, because your phrases usually go up& down, and more frequent 3rd/4th successive jumps would make it more interesting.
Technique: I think you played this take really nice. As a listener, I can hear all the notes very well, and everything is well defined. You choose to play a bit simpler take, but I found this kind of playing much more effective, where notes have more stronger function, then to speed things up with no particular sense.
Sound: The sound you achieved is very interesting, and I like it. I'm not sure what it is, it reminds me on Guitar Rig because of that "gluey" tone that GR natively has. Anyway, whatever it is, octave part really fattened up the tona, giving it a nice round, woody character. I think it is nice, and if you haven't done so, I recommend cutting bellow 90Hz to remove any excess rumble.
