I linked it because it wouldn't show up the other way

I was working on this song for a while but then the program i was using started to annoy me so i decided to just use this which would be better than nothing. I've been practicing some of the scales more to be more fluid. I'm happy how it came out and i would appreciate your comments guys! smile.gif

Guitar sounds nice!
One moment - be more careful with rhythmic side of playing!

Thank you, and can you explain more of what you mean by being more careful with the rhythmic side of playing?

Some really good chops and techniques in there! Some of it may have been a bit outside of the key at hand in spots but it's Metal so that's fine smile.gif But as was mentioned, go back and listen to the rythm part as it relates to the solo itself. Connecting the solo to the rythm guitar part using rythmic elements (picking pattern, speed, note groups) helps the solo sound connected to the song.

Thanks Tod, I'm still a noob at this guitar stuff but having fun with it. The out of key thing is completly right and i wish i could learn more about it but i get super confused about it sometimes. I've been getting alot of influence from chuck schuldiner! obviously i still have long ways to go! smile.gif

Some good ideas in there ! One thing I noticed was about the rhythm track you're playing over. The guitar seems to be playing a riff that uses straight 4/4 timing but the kick drum seems to be playing a pattern that has more of a swing to it, like For Whom the Bell Tolls.. so it sounds like the riff and drums are not following the same accents. I'm talking about bits like at 0:18. Hopefully that makes sense ?

Good solo mate. I like the composition. I also think that you should concentrate on timing to make the solo sound tighter with the backing. Sometimes you are a bit after the beat. Great job by the way! wink.gif

I mean that your timing is not very accurate - phrases are often not connected to song beat.

I bet you know band Necrophagist, listen to their solos - every note is in the right place and this makes sense smile.gif

Wow, that was so much more articulate and actually nailed what I was flubbing around saying in terms of playing on/against the rythm. Well said!
