Speed Metal Collaboration


Number of participants: 4

Attached File  Speed_metal_collab_FINAL_MIX.mp3 ( 4.18MB ) Number of downloads: 224


These are some comments on your takes guys, thanks for participating!

- Karl ss: 0:00 - 0:34

Nice harmony you did at the beginning! I think overall you created a speed metal solo that fits very well in the style. It’s very aggressive and loud!! The way it should be, biggrin.gif
I would take care of the bending of the strings and always get them in tune because sometimes I can feel it’s outside of the scale a bit. And also some other notes are outside of the scale. Make sure you justify them very well!! Do not use them indiscrimatedly.
The guitar patch you chose to record fits nicely with the backing track and stands out in the mix. Very well chosen.

- Marek Rojewski: 0:34 - 1:08

You start off with very speedy lick and then move on to a pentatonic part. These elements are widely used in speed metal so they fit very well here. The tapping lick stands out on its own because it slows down the tempo a bit, at least it gives that impression.

I think it’s very cool that you make use of many techniques and not just stick to one, I would encourage you to keep on doing this. Stick to the drums as much as possible, there are some parts where your timing sounds a little off.

Also, you could more risks when playing the solo and not only stay in one area of the guitar.
The patch you used to record sounds ok but I think it’s a little too dark for the backing track although it stands out on its own.

- Zen: 1:08 - 1:42

Nice melodic intro, very singable. The pentatonic part has a nice direction as well, two phrases easily differentiated. Nice bends.
In the last part where you used the tapping, I feel like you could’ve thought of the notes a little more as you moved up the neck and create more surprise or anticipation.

There’s a great quote one teacher once told me: “Emotion in music comes from surprise”

The guitar sounds very good. It has a nice crisp not too dark yet it stands out in the mix. The delay gives it a nice big solo feel.

- Daniel Realpe: 1:42 - End

My take was pretty much improvised. I wanted to make something that sounded crazy and frenetic so I didn’t give it too much thought. You can hear that I made use of chromatic scale a lot and also some arpeggios as well. The whammy bar helps a lot when trying to sound crazy and very metal.

I used the pod x3 emulating a dual rectifier and a tube screamer.

Emotion in music comes from surprise indeed smile.gif .. Beautiful saying.

Thanks for your feedback Daniel. Ya, i had thought of doing the tapping a little different at first but I couldnt play it at this tempo. So i made it simpler to what i could execute. I pretty much only practiced the fast runs for the past 3 weeks. I couldnt pay them at all at this speed 3 weeks back. Practiced slowly and then increased speed. But i sortta pushed it coz my fingers hurt now (maybe not used to), so will take it slowly again..

Loved the experience and your mindblowing take on this smile.gif . I'll take part in more collaborations now smile.gif

p.s- Oh, is it me or my take is coming just a tiny bit behind time in the final mix.. The note I land after the fast runs made me think or did i not play it on time smile.gif

Thanks for You comment Daniel, I am more less aware of the problems You observed, just need more practice to eventually overcome those:)

I also liked all the takes, and of course Daniels was wicked \m/ smile.gif

it was probably my bad because I just synchonized it using the four beats before the take and not checked with the other mp3

I'm glad you enjoyed being part of a collab!
