* Join my next video chat! GMC startpage holds a video chat schedule. We always cover a lot of ground and have fun. Remember that you don't need any previous knowledge, and you can be passive in the chat.

* Jam with me - you will find active collabs here.

* Post a topic on this board, guitar related or not - doesn't matter! You will find that chatting with instructors boosts your motivation to practice.

* You haven't missed my latest video lessons, have you?

P.S. Todd here, I wanted to ask if I could use your collab in this Saturday's lesson? I plan on sharing the track and some solo bits I'd done. It makes for a very cool lesson smile.gif

QUOTE (Gabriel Leopardi @ Jan 11 2012, 05:38 PM) *
Hello guys!! Welcome to my new Collab. This backing has been inspired in my latest Power Metal lesson in which I covered the style of Helloween. You won't find this progression in the lesson because I recorded the backing specially for this collab.

This is the lesson that I'm talking about: HERE

The chord progression is Em - D - G - C.

Tempo: 150 BPM

The scales that you can use over this backing are E Pentatonic Minor and E Minor.





The deadline is January 31 so you have 20 days to record a cool solo or an harmonized melody (like the original lesson).

Who is in???

Hi everybody! This is the final mix and comments for this collab! smile.gif

Attached File  Power_Metal_Collab_Mix.mp3 ( 2.05MB ) Number of downloads: 57


Gitarrero (00:00 to 00:30)

Hey mate! Thanks for joining! Your solo sounds good. I like the first two ideas, a repetive melody and then some Weikath style bending licks. However I feel that these same ideas could be much better with some more work. Try to add more varied rythms to your soloing ‘cause it starts to sound monotone after some licks. Also you could add some harmonisations in thirds as well as some palm muting ideas.
Here I recorded a sample of te first licks based on your ideas but applying the ideas that I said.
Attached File  Sample_for_Gitarrero.mp3 ( 377.14K ) Number of downloads: 43

Technically everything sounds good but I think that you should add stronger vibrato to your playing. I like your tone, it fits perfectly with the backing.

Superize (00:30 to 00:59)

Hi mate! Thanks for your take!! I think that your take is perfect man! It combines all the elements that a good power metal solo should have... some harmonized melodies, some shredding, some melodies, long and short notes, rocker licks... Hansen, Weikath and our friend Marcus Siepen would be proud of you! Well done!
Your technique is perfect in this take, I have only good comments about it. I like your tone’s sustain but maybe you could add a bit more treble to make it sound a bit brighter.

Todd (00:59 to 01:29)

Hi friend! As I said, it’s a honour to have you here in this collab. I really enjoyed your take. Your technique is awesome and the solo has a great balance between melody and shredding. This combination of fast notes and more melodic ones and the perfection of your right hand as well as your vibrato and bending puts this take at the level of the best power metal guitar players. You tone is really good and the only comments that I have about it is that I feel that it has too much fx (at least for my taste). Congrats and thanks again my friend! smile.gif

Thanks smile.gif I used it in my lesson and improved a bit over it to illustrate the licks in question. Without realizing I sort of jumped in to crazy speed land pulled by backing. It's really a spiff backing and makes you want to just rip. Nice writing there!

hmm. Now I"m thinking, what if we did a instructor collab/collab where you and I wrote the backing or series of riffs, and then did a collab based on it?

Here is a bit that I was thinking would make a start for a cool collab. What if we switched between a few different rythms that were vastly different?

Hey Todd! Those riffs are awesome!! I have been jamming and the ideas sound so cool! I love the idea! Let's do it!
How would you like to proceed? Maybe you could send me the drum midi files, and an audio with your riffs... and then I can create my first and send my audio to let you mix the final backing track... then we can start the collabs thread... what do you have in mind? smile.gif

Thanks for the kind feedback and for making yet another KILLER Collab! Your Collabs always RAWK man! Just great stuff to work with. Congrats to everyone!

I think you are right on the money about the fx on my take, it's got too much "wet" and needs more "dry" to help the notes/picking stand out a bit. Good ear!
