Awrite Daniel. Here is my final take. Don't I look like an instructor now? biggrin.gif



EDIT: Just using my final version (and making a SI Lesson) because I am having many versions of the same tune. Thanks for checking again.

hi Empantheboy,

Thanks for the submission!

You went for the pentatonic route, it seems to really work for this backing. I will give it a go in my take, biggrin.gif

For the type of solo you went for here it could be good to use more sustain in the patch you use, one way to achieve that is by using more gain or drive. This would help connect the phrases a little more. Although there's something cool about the simplicity of sound as well specially when you do the fourths on the higher two strings.

The EQ of the guitar seem a little filtered, make sure you "analize" how the guitar feels to your ears by comparing sounds with famous bands that you like in the same style.

I think these type of collabs are a great exercise to improve on your rhythmic sense. What I notice in your take is that some of the phrases sound really natural and go along with the music, but some others feel rushed, so there's no consistency, and that's the next step to make your playing really sound professional. I guess what you need to do is make that extra effort to really pay attention to every phrase and note that's coming and be in the moment when you are playing and forget about the plans and theory, but this must be done after you have rehearsed it very well and understand what you are going to do.

But don't get me wrong, it's a very good take in general!

Experimenting with new sound/ patch, maybe it backfired.. unsure.gif
the take could be better. Submitting so I don't miss the deadline, if I'm unable to redo it.

Hi guys, this is my take. The sound is not that great...I recorded it with a Fender Strat and a Behringer GM 108 V-Tone amp which doesn't give me that many options to alter the sound. I then added reverb and chorus using energyXT 2.5, just to try these sounds. They sound a bit harsh and not as natural as with my V-amp 3...but I'm at my girlfriends place now and have to deal with the equipment I've got here...
Hope you like it!

Hi Daniel, I made a new recording, hope it's not too late. The sound is much warmer now, I used a v-amp 3 with chorus, a bit of delay and some reverb. Hope you like it!
