Am C - F G

Guitarrero: (00:05 to 00:49)
Nice take man! I like the melodies that you created for this one. Each note sounds in tune and good over each chord. I think that you used too may long notes, It would be good if you also add some silences to this solo. Rests give more space, air and more importance to every phrase that you create. Tecnically you played the solo well, there are just some noisy notes but the overall is very good. Your tone could be a bit warmer a cleaner for this solo but sound ok.
K1R: (00:50 to 01:33)
Your solo has very Buckethead style vibes! The notes, the melodies and your tone sound very in his style. I like how the solo starts with those melancholic phrases. Then when the song explodes you go higher in your neck and continue doing phrases that relate to each other. Your solo’s evolution really makes sense! It is a tasty take man!
The faster lick (alternate picking) need some work but the other sections are placed perfectly. Good job!
Marek: (01:33 to 02:18)
I really enjoy listening to your solo! It sounds very natural over te backing track. Your ejecution is excellent. You pick strong every note and it makes your solo sound very professional. I like the evolution of your composition. You start with slower melodies, then you increase the speed of your links ending with some cool hammerings. You did a great job!
Michael AC: (02:19 to 03:03)
Nice melodies Michael! I like the leit motiv of the first section. I can hear some little timing issues in the first to phrases but the 3rd and 4th phrases are perfect.
The second section also has some very little timing issues and there is one bend where you don’t reach the correct pitch. I like your tone but I would add some more prescence or treble to the amp. I did it in te mix but it’s alwys better to get the wanted tone from your amp.
Quadrium: (03:06 to 03:49)
The ideas used in your solo are very interesting so it’s a cool solo! There are some parts that seem to be over your tecnique level. The faster parts need more work so I think that it would be better if you try to avoid licks tat you stilll need to practice in your compositions.
SpaceMonkey: (03:53 to 04:33)
Hey man! Your solo is played very good! Even the trickier parts are played good. But we have a VERY important problem… there are many notes out of scale. There are also some bends that doesn’t sound very good over the chords that are sounding in the backing at that moment. I Hill give y ou two suggestions to fix this… first check the scale that you are using. I said that you have to use A minor and A Pentatonic minor scales. My second sugestion is to start to train your ear with any sofware or any lesson from our archive. A trained ear will help you to compose melodies that work better over the backings.
WeePee: (04:34 to 05:18)
Nice take man!! It starts with a cool violinish idea! And then you added some hamonized notes that sound really cool. The second section has lots of bends that make it more dramatic and generates a cool contrast with the first part. Everything is played well and your tone is also great! Well done!!
Willy: (05:18 to 06:05)
Beautiful playing Willy!! Your solo starts melodic but then it becomes the most rocker solo of this collab. I like those rocker licks that you played in the distorted section.
The last ideas are fantastic and sounds so fresh for me. Your tone sounds cool and you playing is flawless on this one. Good job man!
Zen: (06:08 to 07:36)
I love the feel of your solo man! It’s a pleassure to hear it over and over… I think that you nailed the style perfectly and gave as a flawless take with lots of beautiful melodies. You take is groovy, dramatic and meloncholic at the same time. Buckethead would be proud! Well done man!!
