Hey man, I think your guitar is out of tune. Also watch the bends. Good flow though.

Well done! Some very dextrous playing there! As was mentioned in the previous post, there does seem to be a tuning issue but it could be your intonation as well, or both. Did you tune right before recording? If so, your guitar needs to be "setup" by a pro who can do the intonation properly. This one change can make or break a guitar. I know it must be getting annoying hereing "it's out of tune" all the time, so I'm sorry for that. I know you really just want to know how you played and such. For a lot of folks, the tuning bit gets in the way of being able to hear how well you did or didn't play the bit. For me, it's much harder to focus on whats being playing when my ear keeps picking up tuning issues. Then again, some folks are bothered by it at all.

Tuning does get in the way for a feedback on how well a piece is played or not played. And it really can get annoying to a get feedback on it as well. We've all been through it and eventually thanked people who took notice of it. There was a time when i was shocked to hear that my guitar had intonation issues as well but it all settled in nice and well later on. If it wasn't for those people telling me to fix it, i would still be playing a badly tuned instrument without knowing it... Ask Maharzan how much I traumatized him on the intonation of his old guitar.

The intention is to help you rather than post sugarcoated politically correct opinions, which will be more damaging to your guitar progress in the long run.

I'm not bothered by it all, if that was hinted towards me.

Dogukan,


You will absolutely love the positive feedback you'll get after you take the time to tune that guitar more carefully. Seriously, you will have all kinds of girls flinging themselves at you if you'd just tune that instrument.

Ditto what Zen said about the pitch of each bend.

Timing sounded good.

Sounds very good, although I think you need to work a bit more on those bends, and as you said - fixing intonation on the guitar (try at least to tune to position where you play the solo, it might sound better).
