Hey guys, I've wanted to make one of these videos for ages but kept forgetting about it.. plus I wasn't picking up my guitar that often. But I finally got around to making a video of all my solos from Defining Armageddon smile.gif



I didn't aim for perfection and just listen to that obnoxious squeal in the solo for the title track itself huh.gif but it was fun to do !

I recorded this as I usually do.. a DI from the back of the amp head. As I say in the video, the tone of this amp really comes alive through a speaker and it was mic'd up to record the DA album, both rythm and lead, but for non album projects I always use the DI for quickness and convenience smile.gif

Hey Ben nice video ! cool.gif

I have to ask - Did you remember all the notes of the solos ? Or did you have to re-learn some of them for the video ?

Yes I remember them all. It's strange how it never goes away. It's something I always wondered about.. forgetting how to play things etc.. but so far, so good (so what ?) biggrin.gif

Great video, thanks for sharing!

As you know, I'm a big fan of your playing style. It's also cool how well all the solos are composed and thoroughly thought through (now try to say that while munching donuts), and that you can "reproduce" them like this, I guess that's convenient for live situations. smile.gif
