* Great takes from everyone! I left some comments about them right here:

- K1R




There’s GREAT improvement in your playing from last time! But I would still encourage you to play more certain of every phrase and with more confidence.

For this you need to be really sure of what you are going to do before you record, meaning, the starting and finishing points of every phrase, intention, etc.

The main problem is the starting point of each phrase. It seems as it took you by surprise almost everytime.
The tone is cool, you can always add a little delay and reverb to it to make it sound more pro.

Thanks for taking part.

- Gitarrero



I liked your simple melodic approach with which you started. Good and clear ideas put together. You took your time there.
I would focus on the timing on the repeated patterns. Eventhough these are repeated, it would seem their rhythm should matter that much, but the opposite is the case. Your timing must be VERY precise when doing things that repeat because they make the pulse stand out a lot.

The tone is a little too raw to me. You can add more EQ or Compression to make it fatter, and even some reverb and delay.

Thank you for participating!

Nice bend at the beginning arriving at the actual note from an outside note, very expressive. You have a nice idea of your phrases in the head which I can tell. I would make the vibratos more aggressive and the bends.

You undertood very well the idea behind the harmony and made good use of pentatonic and minor scales in the context.
The tone seems a little too harsh, maybe more mids would help, and even try some reverb or more if it has any. Or even some delay.

Thank you for participating!

I remember you were not too happy with this take. That happens sometimes, but it was good that you submitted anyway. That happened to me when I started recording mine. What I did was too put together small chunks which is a lot easier to accept instead of the perfect whole take.

I like your tone, somehow reminds me of Adrian Smith of Iron Maiden.

One thing I really liked is the bend towards the end where one can hear both strings ring. Just wanted to point that out.

Thank you for taking part.

- Daniel Realpe

My take ended up being a compilation of improvised licks and small phrases. I mainly used the harmonic minor scale combined with some pentatonic licks using a lot of bends, slides, vibratos and even some pauses.

The tone comes from the plug in Revalver MK III from Peavey using a Marshall emulation only.

Thanks very much for having taken part on this collab guys!

Hey thank you for your comments.
I actually recorded first with clean tone but then I changed my tone from clean to gain. I kinda rushed it so I didn't tweak it at all. dry.gif
But I liked my second melody/licks from 0.28 -> It was my favourite and I felt that I got it exactly how I wanted to.
But now I need to practice your Wild Bends® lesson cool.gif

Ville

P.S. Can you post TABs for YOUR solo. Thanks !!

ok I see,

That bends lesson is designed to help you improve in that of course,

I don't have the tabs for my solo, sorry,

BUT it's pretty easy if you only use your ears and KNOW that I only used the B minor scale and pentatonic smile.gif

Thanks for the feedback, Daniel!
Just one more question, what do you think about my vibrato in the first part. I practiced it in the last few weeks and would really like to hear if I am on the right path so far.
Looking forward to your next collab!

Christian

sideways vibrato can be cool, but it's a whole different thing than doing upwards/downwards vibrato,

They sound different, sideways it's not "as effective" going up and down can be very agressive,
