> HEY MAN, I really need your help...

...the thing is, I need you to start progressing faster then ever, but to achieve that I need your help:

* Don't know where to start? Just pm me and we will sort it out directly, I am online every day.

* Join My Army. Sounds aggressive? It is! We can study anything from the most fearsome picking techniques to bombastic songwriting. A medal of honor awaits the brave. Seriously, this is an opportunity for you to get a personalised learning experience...what are you waiting for?!

* 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?

* Finally I want to tell you a secret. Nah I changed my mind - pm me instead ;)

Hey guys! These days have been a bit crazy because of some Cirse's stuff (Videoclip and Ep's last details) but I will be mixing this one later today. Sorry for the delay! wink.gif

Hello guys!! This is the final mix and comments for the Modern Rock Collab. I want to say thanks to all the guys that joined this one and also the ones that wanted to join and couldn't for different reasons.

This is the mix: Attached File  Modern_Rock_Collab_Mix.mp3 ( 12.9MB ) Number of downloads: 84


And now some comments.

Bleez:
Your take is really nice. I enjoyed your phrasing a lot, every section sound very tasty and the only weird moment is at 00:47 where you play something a bit out of scale. The other sections are beautiful. Your tone fits perfectly with the backing. Well done!

Christophe:
Hi mate! The first thing that comes to mind when I hear your take (and also when I saw the file in the daw) is that we have to review your audio recording settings. Your tone should be clearer and the audio signal should be higher. Regarding your playing, the take sounds good, everything is in scale and the next thing to master is making your solo evolve in a better way. You repeat similar rhythms and phrases many times but it seems that you are playing scales instead of melodies. Try to create melodies first in your mind and then transpose them into your guitar and maybe you will get what I mean. Is it clear? Let’s talk about all this things! Please contact me. Thanks for your take!

Dieterle:
Hi mate! Thanks for joining this one! I can see an improvement in your playing compared to previous entries. You still need to work more on your ideas to make the overall solo more defined but you are on the right track. Everything sounds in scale and you tone is great! Keep on rocking.

Gitarrero:
Hi German guys!! biggrin.gif I have to say that now the word Gitarrero is synonymous of hard work and great quality! Your tone is fantastic (maybe you could add a bit of presence or treble) and your solo, is not your best one but it works cool over the backing. Thanks for joining this one! Keep on rocking GMC.

Spasemonkey:
Hi mate! You solo is shorter but killer! You played a great solo over the chorus of this song. I enjoyed each lick as well as your technique and tone. I have nothing to say but congrats and thanks for rocking this track. biggrin.gif

WeePee:
Hi friend! Let me say that your playing is tasty and fresh at the same time. Every lick sounds new to me but also fits perfect over the backing. I enjoyed listening to it a lot. It’s fantastic, excepting the last rocker lick that sounds very out of scale, re.check it!
Thanks for joining. 

Nether:
Is John Frusciante featured on this one??? biggrin.gif I really liked the tone that you used to solo over this take. I think that the feeling of your phrasing is good but you have to pay attention to your bending pitches and also to some notes that sound out of scale on this one. If you fix those notes that don’t sound good your solo could be a top quality one... now the question is... do you note which notes aren't sounding ok over the backing?

Thanks Gabe !! smile.gif

I have to admit that this last lick bothered me too!! But I was too lazy to correct it and I was one week in Spain after recording it.

I'm looking forward to your next Collab !! All these recent backing tracks has been very interesting and really great !!

Yes my recording stuff is an old iPhone 3GS (almost totally dead) and when I recorded I was in a hurry to make something to give you, because I didn't want again to say I'm in and then I don't post anything, it'd mean that I haven't done anything which is absolutely false, I've spent several hours working my A minor Pentatonic.

I can't get off that 4th/8th notes, I don't know why. I find this very hard to make melodies with a simple key (Am) and a simple box (Am Pentatonic 5-7), I watched Pentatonic solo lesson from Marcus and I learnt the half of it to find some inspiration about rhythm which I find very particular in this lesson.

I hope I'll get something good next time smile.gif

Thanks for your feedback I really value it smile.gif

NB : (That's ridiculous but I'm quite happy with my little burst near the end, it sounds pro ahahah biggrin.gif)

PS : I don't use my Zoom G2.1Nu to record because the sound I hear when I'm playing and the sound I get with the recording isn't the same at all (the sound recorded has often twice as much distorsion), so it's very annoying to obtain something I like.

ahh ok! now I understand the sound issue! Regarding your phrasing, I think that learning melodic lessons that use A pentatonic minor could be a good idea. You have to incorporate more licks and solo ideas into your guitar vocabulary... it's just a matter of time. Don't worry and keep on working. Joining Collabs is also the way to go... you will keep your mind working and your training your creativity....

also... thanks everybody for the comments and for joining! smile.gif
