I would like to join this collaboration. I have never done one before so this would be a first for me. Matter of fact I never tried to write my on melodies before, so this is all new to me. Just thought I should get more involved. I hope I did everything right!

Well that's a very nice take indeed, dude. Sounded really good.

All the cool kids seem to 'pop their collab cherry' with Mr Higgins biggrin.gif

Thanks bleez, it's nice to get a compliment. It means a lot.

Mr. Higgins made it easy to understand how to approach the process, he laid out the foundation well.
Thanks to Doug Lane too, for tabbing out the backing track. That helped me a lot too.

Here is my take with the backing. Files to follow smile.gif

*KEY 80's Whitesnake Moments
1.)Set up the "Melody through line" straight away
2.)Adding a Harmony to the tapping lick
3.)Overlayed Harmonics
4.)Increased complexity to a climax four note tapping bit.

In short, pretty much TEXTBOOK 80's Power Ballad Cheese!!!!! smile.gif And some of the most fun I've had crafting a solo!

We talked about all this in two full vid chat sessions so hopefully it all made sense during the lesson and hopefully encourages folks to join in!

SOLO ONLY FILE
Attached File  Todd_NO_Backing_Whitesnake_Xmas_Collab_.mp3 ( 1.54MB ) Number of downloads: 71


P.S. TONE CONTROLS:
I used, quite simply, direct recording and the DEVIN TOWNSEND EPIC SOLO preset from "Guitar Gods" expansion pack on EZ MIX 2.

It's so staggeringly simple to decent tone these days! Gotta love it smile.gif

Thank you WeePee and Nava, much appreciated.

Todd, damn dude, that was awesome! Love the tone and I really like the liquid feel you and WeePee have in your solos. That tapping bit was phenomenal too.

It was a great take man, congrats on your first collab! How did you like coming up with your own melodies? I know you mentioned this was your first time doing it.

Thanks Bro, it was very fun, I really enjoyed it. The only thing I didn't like, it was to short. I just wanted to keep playing. After hearing some of the other takes like WeePee's sweet harmonies, your tap harmonics and Tod's awesomeness. The ideas are just flowing now. I can't wait to here more takes form people.

Haha that's awesome man. I hear licks or techniques on this site all the time that I want to try and work into a Collab take. The tap harmonic idea came from Sinisa's Harmonic Tapping lesson he did not too long ago. I'm not applying it like he did in the lesson but that's where the idea to use some form of tapped harmonics came from. Also, I've been on a 1/2 bend kick here lately stemming from Ben's last couple lessons (Bending From the Outside & Targeting the Chord).

Thanks!!! smile.gif Glad you like it! I focused a lot more on the melody construction and building around it than per usual going blitzkrieg on it smile.gif

Those licks are part of LESSON 238 and LESSON 239 for reference and the tablature is in the notes!

The tone is a one click patch from EZ MIX 2/Gutar Gods Expansion Pack. I really dig it for solo work, it's a DEVIN TOWNSEND patch called EPIC SOLO smile.gif If one is working quickly, or on a portable system, or just wants to get to recording and skip the tweaking phase, this package delivers. You can't really tweak it much, but for just getting straight to recording before one loses the ideas at hand, it's great.

The spiff folks @ Pro Tone Pedals ( I used the pro tone "Bulb Deluxe" when I recorded my solo for this collab) were awful nice and shared my solo for this collab on their facebook page!!! And one of our fellow GMCers shared his solo in the comments section. This collab is BLOWING UP GLOBAL!!!! smile.gif

Hey Ben, here is my take without the video graphics. Just in case you would rather have a cleaner looking video to use instead.
