As promised wink.gif I realise that it sounds like there's a section missing at the end, but it's all I could think of having only found out about this a few hours ago - apologies!

Comrades - it is here !!!



AK RICH - Love the use of whammy on this, it's got a real Jason Becker feel !! Just watch out for them sharp bends, you don't wanna cut yourself !!

TODD SIMPSON - Wow, this just bursts out of nowhere, straight in your face ! That mask helps deliver the message, which should be 'Don't f*** with T. Simpson'

SPASEMOONKEY - Love the way you mirror the riff your own way and those natural harmonics sound amazing.The 'shivering' whammy notes also rock maximum butt !

WEEPEE - A very controlled take from you, sir. You've used the rhythm and emphasised some mid tempo melodies which works very well. Those bends at the end are great, very Chris Poland.

GITARRERO - What can one possibly say that hasn't been said already about The Hef ?? Attitude by the truck loads. I love the way you start this take.. even if there was no video it would still sound like a strafing machine gun. Nice work !

BAS CUTHACH - Nice use of pentatonics here and those tapping licks are a welcome addition. The tone is interesting though. It sounds like you've plugged into a wasp's nest ! If you can get a less fizzy tone which is thicker, with more mid it'll make a massive difference. Great work on the playing side.

JTSCRN - Well, with that gun sitting there, obviously your solo was the best ! As a mentioned earlier in the thread, I think the atonal approach works well, even if that's not what you were going for. Belive it or not, it reminds me of Morbid Angel (which you'll probably like even less !) I would add more variation alongside the arpeggios to break it up and keep things interesting.

H4H - Lovely intro to this.. just what the doctor ordered ! Interspersing your runs with slower licks and bends is a brilliant approach and it's a bit like a snake slithering over this lumbering, heavy backing track. Sometimes it crawls and then it strikes !

OPETHOLIC - I really dig these opening notes you choose, it works so well melodically ! Those Skolnick diminshed 5th licks at the end are also really tasty, it definitely wouldn't hurt if they become part of your repertoire !

SLAVENKO - 'Death to False Metal' cries the Serb Bad Boy ! Somehow, you manage to make these 'wrong' notes sound right ! By the second bend and phrase, I'm getting a Kirk Hammet vibe (I'm sure you'll hate that). I think it's because you play these notes with conviction which makes all the difference to the listener - great stuff !

GABRIEL LEOPARDI - Are you new at GMC ? You seem to be quite good. If you need any lesson suggestions don't hesitate to ask one of us around here. Although it looks like you don't need any help.
KILLER TAKE, GAB !!

MAREK ROJEWSKI - I love this solo. The opening chords, the sweeps to the unexpected pinch harmonic when you go up high.. a masterclass in itself. You should be proud, Sir ! I know I am.

NIMRANDIR - Damn, so when did you give lessons to Michael Romeo ? He's obviously been nicking a few of your licks over the years ! Seriously great take, those tapping licks really blast out of nowhere and sound real slippery. Very Paul Gilbert vibrato too. Epic stuff.

DARK DUDE - I love the seedy, untrustworthy sound of the diminished 5th you're using here. This is a real back alley solo ! Like a shady guy who hangs around dark streets and sells guitar solos for a price... that ending sweep is heroic !!

SENSIBLE JONES - At some point here you actually start remidning me of Jeff Beck with the tone and phrasing. It really works and stands out from all the more modal stuff that's been happening elsewhere. It's got a real groove and that keyboard track adds to the driving sound of it all. Sensible indeed !

Guys, it was an honour to work with you. You all rule. Enough said. cool.gif

Haha, thanks Ben!

You know, I've got this weird form of red light anxiety where I, instead of messing things up badly, simply become an attitude animal laugh.gif

Looking forward to your next collab my friend! I know we always think at the end of the collab that it can't become any better, yet everytime all of us are delivering even cooler takes for even cooler backings wink.gif
