PLUSHED ROCK COLLAB


No. of participants: 8 (2 video entries)

Attached File  FINAL_MIX_Plushed_rock_collab.mp3 ( 8.35MB ) Number of downloads: 225


* Here are some comments I made on your takes, and mine:

- Gitarrero: (0:00-0:47)

I really liked your take,

The tone goes really well with the backing, the flanger gives it a nice rocking touch,

The slow part and that bending goes along really well,

Tapped part is kind of out of context but what the heck, imo

I think in your head you have the same phrase start everytime, you wait one pulse and then start playing, it could be a good idea to vary this and for instance start playing over the first pulse of the bar, or even wait longer, but make it a little more varied,

thanks for taking part!

- NoSkill (0:47-1:32)



Man, really cool take! the video is great!

That long note in the quiet part struck a cord inside of me, no kidding, reminded me of Guns n Roses or something...

I think your overall composition makes a lot of sense, simple, fun, nice tone, relaxing...

It's a great expression of what you had inside at the time,

I guess that's all I'm saying,

Thank you for participating!

- Zen (1:32-2:15)



Nice Take! The video looks GREAT!

You did a good job defining the phrases in sections that are easy understandable.

I like the way you mixed it, the stereo effect on the guitar makes it sound very full.

I think there's a slight issue with the intonation. Maybe the guitar was out of tune just a bit. Or maybe it's a problem in the bendings, just make sure you are conscious of that.

The arpeggio part near the end feels a little forced in there. I guess the phrase they say about not using everything you know in one solo has to do with that. I mean, it's cool to use whatever you want, but listen to the overall music direction and follow it, sometimes using different techniques we might interrupt that nice flow in the music.

Thank you for participating Zen!

- Thefireball (2:15-3:00)

Nice use of artificial harmonics. The whole tone bendings arre in perfect tune. I think the half-tone ones are a little off.

I think in general you are not 100% certain of where the bends needed to go and I think this is due to the thought of associating bendings with the “feeling” in a solo, which in most cases it’s true. My point is that even though it’s true we still have to be as precise on the tuning as if we were doing alt. picking or something like that.

I loved the blues lick. Timing has to be treated in the same way. It must be precise even when it’s supposed to be off. It’s got to be precisely off, if you know what I mean.

Thanks for participating!

- Joe (3:00-3:44)

I like the tone! It’s very dark and bassy, but it makes it very smooth to the ears.
The contrast you made between the beginning and soft part it’s well thought of, you are using your musical sensitivity here and that’s the point, at least that’s what I tried to do on my take.

Nice take!

Thanks for taking part!

- Kaznie (3:44-4:29)

Nice rock tone! The beginning makes a lot of sense, it kind of has that U2 vibe to it. The bending it’s very well executed.
I think you moved out of the key a little too much during the slow part, be aware of that.

Notice that all your phrases are starting almost identically, just the fact that you aware of this will start to add some variation in your playing. You can makes longer phrases, start on different beats of the bar (on the beat, off beat, wait 2 pulses, etc.) But I think in general, thinking in longer phrases will help on this.

Just as an exercise try and make a vocal melody before even playing anything, a long one. Rehearse it as if you were playing it and sing it along the backing track (Any backing) you’ll see that the instrument itself sometimes can limit you. (This last part about vocal melodies is a recommendation for everyone, in case you guys read this)

- JamesT (4:29-5:13)

I like the tone although it sounds a little nasal. I think it cuts through the mix really good, it seems to have a wah turned on or something like that.
The pentatonic scales you chose to use are in a slightly different key which sounds somehow off, imo. One way I check if the scale works is improvising sometime over it and really listening to what I’m going for.

The ending has a nice melodic idea that fits in pretty good with the rhythm guitar.

Thank you for participating

- Daniel Realpe (5:13-END)

My approach to this solo came vocally first. The very first bit. And from then on I just kept on imagining what would come after that. After I came up with a complete solo I listened to it again and started erasing some parts and changing them.

I was gonna throw some shred in there but I think it would have messed up the nice flow I got going in the beginning of it.
I used a major scale and pentatonic which gave it that sort of “not-so-serious” character. Notice also the use of bendings in different directions and not only in the same way in different parts.

Thanks for the feedback Daniel. Bends are a real problem for me; especially prebends. This is why I like entering into this kinda stuff so I can know where to improve.

Everyone did well! Awesome mix!!!

thnx for the comments and cool backing! I was indeed outr of key and prety clueless, I thought I was using Emixo (cmaj I believe) and then when that had quite a few off notes I used Bmpenta, but no luck there either.... Hmmm, still not sure how that got in smile.gif

thanks man!
