Taking a break from Dojo duty ( my turn to clean the privy's dry.gif ) to contribute a little lick.

Hope it pleases.

Regards Lixxx


PS: Since I fail to get my JM4 to play mp3, and converted wav seem to be wrong frequency-or-some-like-that I have one with Metronome ( WOOOW) and one without .


Hehe, an unaccompanied solo wink.gif Sounds like it will fit well, though. Very nice tone, very bluesy cool.gif

GUITAR TAKES! smile.gif

Here is my guitar take. I went a bit LOCO on FX/stomp boxes/Rack modules with the OVERLOUD TH2 as I was neck deep in building some crazy presets at time. I plan to share them in the TH2 thread as a bonus! smile.gif

WITH BACKING
Attached File  ToddwithBackingnew.mp3 ( 1.68MB ) Number of downloads: 88

WITHOUT BACKING

Another great backing track. Simple and perfect for leads!

Just pop it on the BT should work.... Yeah I did some faster stuff but that didnt fit too good ( and since I now have to work on left right coordination anyway I thought I stick with a melodic approach and let the others do the shredding )

Thanks wink.gif I actually tried to do my best "Ben" on these licks! I thought, "hmm, how would Sensei hear/play this part?," and it worked out pretty well!

Yup, that is my AUTOWAH patch series on several of the bits. I'm gonna post these patches in the OVERLOUTH TH2 thread. It's four patches I think.

Same here! I went to "shred it" and it just sounded wrong. Worked much better using some licks that I've pilfered from Bens chats! smile.gif If you notice, during his chats, he's always playing these cool licks ( not even licks for the lesson, just cool licks) while just talking, almost randomly picking licks and they are all spiff!

Here is my take!
Some of the licks are still a "work in progress" It was fun jamming of this track!

Hey this is a kick ass solo ! Your tone is really interesting, how do you get it ? Those sweeps at the end sound just like Vinnie Moore cool.gif

Thanks!! I used my YJM start with a Fender Hotrod amp with some reverb, a Tubescreamer for a little boost and snowball usb mic.
I like to just plug in and play... sometimes the sound turns out OK and others times not laugh.gif

Your take is tasty, too. It has a little bluesy vibe to it.

IT'S FINALLY HERE !!

Attached File  Running_Around_Collab_Final_Mix.mp3 ( 10.64MB ) Number of downloads: 106


Superize - Great melody and control shown throughout. I really like your use of chords (sounds like 2 note type chords if I'm right ?) in this as well. Your alternate picking runs have definitely improved too. Perhaps one thing that could feature more in future solos is more bending maybe. Great work !

WeePee - Probably my favourite solo of yours so far ! I really love the use of Wah and you whacked out some brilliant rhythmical phrases right at the beginning. Nothing I can think of to criticise so just keep working hard !

Casinostrat - Some great lines in here, nice phrasing. There's a couple of awkward sounding note to my ears. One is about 8 seconds into your solo. I think you're using a pentatonic type sequence but it's got a C Minor Penta sound instead of a G minor sound. Although the notes are not 'outside' the scale, the combination of them in a certain order can sound almost wrong. Kirk Hammett does it quite a lot deliberatly in his solos but I've never thought that it works. It's mainly the combo of F, D# and C that sound awkward because they create a C Minor tonality. It's only a minor criticism but I thought I'd explain it as best I can hence the long writing. Your take is great !

Lixxx - Very nice, laid back approach here. One thing that might make it better is to use the silences in a different way. Instead of waiting for a couple of bars to pass and then coming on on the exact start of the bar, try to explore the idea of starting phrases at the end of a bar so they carry over into the start of a new one. I hope that makes sense ? This makes it less predictable and less like 'I'm going to wait until this point and start again'.

Fireball - I really like the way you start the 2 opening phrases the same way but when you climb up for the tail end of each phrase you choose a different note the second time. It's a very Vai type way of approaching melody and it really works well ! No criticisms I can think of.

Todd - You really need to practise your alternate picking, dude.. there's a guy called Todd who... oh, wait.. Teehee. Love your take man, the tonal variations are killer !!

DeGroot - I really like this take. It's an unusual sound with those harmonies and that tone but it really works ! It's uncanny how much like Vinnie Moore you sound in places. No criticisms as such, only keep working on those sweeps to make 'em even better !

Llibach - Cool, rhytmical take here. Try to work on your vibrato so you can make it slower as well as fast and buzzy. I like your open string lick. After that your picking sequence is a little meandering and needs a stronger direction. Apart from that it's allll good.

H4H - A classic take from you. You've definitely upped the ante this time and pulled some neo classical licks out of the bag ! My only criticism is during the second half, your first half is brilliant. In the second half the root note of G makes too many appearances at the end of phrases, 3 times including the end one. I think if the end note was changed to a 5th it would avoid the effect of feeling like we've heard that note too many times. Or you could swap one of the earlier notes and still end on the G. Agin, like the other criticims in anyone else's take, it's only a tiny observation, everything else rocked !

So, guys.. I must say I'm really impressed with the level of melody and ideas this time. In terms of content this is the best collab yet ! Thanks for getting onvolved, keep practising and see you next time ! Maybe the Sensei will grab his guitar and get his butt on the next one, eh ? tongue.gif

Now this rocked some serious socks off!

Great job Ben and everyone who contributed to this collab. I am really proud of getting the honor of wrapping up this great piece of music, even though I happened to land on a G. cool.gif
