You know I submitted one crappy take! But then decided to record a new one and shot my most epic video ever for the demon hunter collab.
When I listen to my old takes I think they were crappy enough, I'm glad I became better at playing solos laugh.gif Though I didn't really notice the process.
Still...the day may come. Be afraid. Be very afraid... laugh.gif

Hi man, I think we managed to fix your video so it's ok smile.gif

Instead, I'm faced with another issue that the video won't render.. but I'll get there eventually !

Ok Guys, it's finally here !!!



I approached the mix as a 'song' so rather than have everybody's take playing all the way through I combined them together to (hopefully) complement each other. I'm sorry if I left out any licks that you really liked.. but at least we have the full takes in the thread in all their glory so nothing is lost smile.gif

I have to say this is the best collab I've ever been involved in and I thank you all for your contribution to making it what it is !!

I'll be back soon with some feedback on your takes - enjoy ! cool.gif

FEEDBACK

Gitarrero - Nice use of some certain classic metal licks (which we won't mention..) ! Good composition, love the tapping at the end too. Watch out for hand co ordination as well on stuff like that ascending sequence around 0.10 and maybe try and get some more vibrato action going too smile.gif

WeePee
- Another classic solo from The Finn. Love the harmonies and the overall pace of the solo. I also noticed the Adrian Smith blues lick in there too wink.gif Brilliant ending with the bend.. that's how it's done !

Dieter
- I really like the chord ideas you've got going on here ! We need to work with you on getting some more licks into your repertoire and working on your timing so you can spice up your takes a bit more.. but so far, so good. And always a pleasure to have you onboard ! smile.gif

jstcrsn - Some great note choices here. Building a melodic theme in a solo is very important and you demonstrated this to good effect ! Could do with some work to improve hand synch as the fast runs were a little unintelligible but that's all wink.gif

mroberts70 - Solid offering from you here, Mark. The tone is a bit fizzy, not sure if that's the gear/software you're using maybe ? Rhythmically strong, nothing out of place.. needs some more variation as it sounds like it all takes place in one area but we've been talking about this anyway, so all good smile.gif

DeGroot - Great stuff here, DG. Good, measure, well paced and relaxed take. Full of your usual great vibrato and bending. Not feeling that second arpeggio at 0.33 but that's just me ! Nice work cool.gif

HungryforHeaven - What can I say ? Probably my personal fave of all the solos that you've submitted to a collab yet ! It's got it all. Great melody, great technique, good pacing. I better stop there before you start acting like Yngwie... biggrin.gif

Squonk - Really strong entry, Dave. Great pace, the way you start with a slow note and add to it is classic solo composition. Really like the lick from 0.18-0.20 too ! The tone itself was very bassy and quite loud when I dropped it into my mix so you might want to check the signal and turn it down a bit so it doesn't distort ! smile.gif

Mike Bryant - Mike, I'm really pleased you jumped right into this collab and it's good to meet you ! There's a great double stop bend in your take and those natural harmonics are a nice touch. Like Dieter, we can work with you to add to your abilities so you can start crafting some more licks to add ! Timing, hand co ordination and some licks that work on your fretting hand dexterity should get you to a new level ! smile.gif

Gregc1 - Another classic from the Greg Man ! Beautiful phrasing and use of whammy... and those chords !! I'll leave it at that cool.gif

AK Rich - Man, you definitely resurrected the spirit of the 80's with the tone and whammy use. Doubling was a nice effect too. Those bits around 0.20 are brilliant. I think you're recording with your signal too hot so it's causing massive amounts of hiss and distortion which is a shame because it ruins your take a bit, so try not to take the 'turn it up to 11' thing too literally ! wink.gif

Christophe - Another person who I was glad to welcome to the collab (first of many, I hope !). There's some good ideas in here, the whammy use was great and the over hand thing and tapping work !! cool.gif There's some notes near the beginning which sound as if they're in the wrong scale so they won't help too much.. and I think the high E string was a bit flat. But for a first entry, well done !

Again, it's a shame I ah to miss out a lot of licks from your takes but the good things is that they're preserved here for posterity cool.gif

Thank you all, once again - this was truly a kick ass collab and you can all be proud of your work !!

Cool man, this turned out great! All the guitar parts link together beautifully. Almost sounds like we all planned it that way. smile.gif

You have unleashed the fury!!! mad.gif

No, seriously, I am truly happy for your kind words. I agree with DG that everything mixes together very well, as if it was planned.

I must also comment on your take here. I played the video from 1:40, over and over, and still can't believe how it's possible to come up with anything like it. I probably sound like a stalker or an overly creepy fan (which is not far from the truth tongue.gif ), but it is just too good to be left without further notice. Could you please tell us more about your take? Is it planned/composed down to every detail, or is some of it a product of its own moment in time and space?

Well thank you Mr H ! smile.gif

I didn't have a plan so I sat down and did about 5 or so jams over the top before I recorded anything. I had an idea of where I wanted to go for the start note, and roughly where I wanted to go after that but it was totally on the edge and non rehearsed !!
