Like Cosmin said. We're not just mixing the takes the way they are in the order of upload time smile.gif We are waiting for all takes before starting the mixing job. We then combine takes in order to constantly build the tension in the mix. When we have all the takes we can make things like guitar "conversations" or two layers of guitars at the same time. Remember that we also have to prepare some feedback for You and we make a lot of brainstorms before giving You the final product smile.gif

Ladies and gentlemen! We give you - THE FINAL MIX!!!!



First and foremost - thank you all a big, big bunch for participating!! Everyone did a great job, so please take a look over the comments as well, as we have highlighted everyone's finest moments smile.gif

Gabriel, on technique:

Tony K: Hi mate! Thanks for your take! Your phrases are cool in your mind but there is some work to do to be able to play them consistently. You need to do some technique training and focus on timing and pitch. The backing is not easy but you could create good ideas over it. Keep on the hard work!

Bleez: I like the rocker spirit that you gave to the take. You used some classic rock licks over pentatonic and made them fit perfectly over the backing. Talking about technique, there is nothing to mark, everything sounds great. Good job!

Beat: I have to say that I love your guitar!! It looks and sounds fantastic. You solo is nice and has been played very professionally. Your bends are precise, your vibrato is ok (could be wider sometimes) and your timing 100% tight. Congrats!

Degroot: You are the shredder of this one! You played really tricky licks and sound like the masters. I like how you used different parts of the neck in the same phrase, and how you mixed melodies with shred arpeggios with tapping and other magic. You rocked this one!

Wollace: Nice playing! I think that you are going on the right track with your overall playing. You still need to feel even more relaxed while you play to make it more expressive and dynamic.

Doug: Hey mate! IT has been great to do a counterpoint with you! We are ready for some “Racer X” & “Cacophony” style albums. biggrin.gif I didn’t compose my solo over yours, Darius did the job of combining both and I really liked the final result. You did a very nice solo. Well done!

SpaseMoonKey: Hey mate! That room is a dream. Great equipment there! And based on your playing, you really deserve it! I like the feeling and little slides, vibrato and other details that you added to make your take so expressive. Thanks for joining!

Tflava: I like your composition. You have to be careful with unwanted noises while you play a melody. Remember to mute the strings that you are not playing. There is also a bend in the middle that doesn’t reach the correc pitch. Focus on those things the next time! Keep on rocking.

Alisson: It’s an honor for us to have George Harrisson on this collab. Hahaha Bogdan made me note it, you are so close to him when he was young (off course). Your solo is really cool and I think that you did a great use of slides and vibrato to make your cool melody even more expressive. I also liked that last harmonic to end the solo. You are talented mate, keep on the good job!

Cosmin, on phrasing:

Tony K: Hey Tony! As we discussed in the PM exchange, your take is built with nice phrases, but you need to polish your technique and timing in order to make them shine. We thought that a dialogue would be fitting, in order to imbue a little more dynamic feel in the take. Try to alternate long note based passages with more busier sounding phrases, in the future, for more dynamics!

Bleez: Great touch man! Nice dynamics and interpretation - you start to sound a lot like Zakk Wylde, indeed smile.gif And your articulation technique is getting better and better every time - congrats! If you would like to make things sound a bit more different, you could create sequences that sound a bit more complex, in respect to that last pentatonic descending lick.

Beat: Hey amigo! Your playing was always very exact! That's not a bad thing, but you need to start thinking about giving more life to your notes, by pickin harder or softer and making more use of articulation elements such as bending and vibrato. The fact that you tackled the 'Voice of your guitar' lesson, is a very good thing for developing good articulation skills.

Degroot: I think you have an amazing phrasing and touch - nothing much to say here, man - I really, really enjoyed this! And there's that sweet Strat unmistakeable chuch'a'chuck!

Wollace: Hello young man! I think you are on the right path with this, but it definitely could use more dynamics. It's a bit too linear and you want to keep your listener hyped all the time - try to fool around with various types of rhythmic subdivisions, in your breaks and phrases alike, in order to make things sound a bit more unpredictable.

Doug: Howdy Doug! You teamed up with Gabi for a very nice dialogue - melodic, well interpreted and having a solid direction! Congratulations!

SpaseMoonKey: Travis, my friend! Great to have ya here with us! Aside from suggesting you to focus a bit on creating more variety in respect to the note and break lengths, there's nothing much to add here. This track ain't that easy as well, so I think that pushing yourself with less comfy musical environments such as this one, can only be a good boost in kicking you out of your comfort zone.

Tflava: Hey Tim! Nice ideas here man - as we discussed, the technique is usually a little hurdle, which you need to overcome in some situations. Bends and noises should be a primary target, but with experience, you will discover that you don't need amazing lightning speed to be able to create memorable phrases - it's all a matter of exploring and aiming to make musical phrases. It will come to you in time, as your ideas are already heading in that direction.

Alisson Hello young George Harrison:) Harrison Da Silva, if we may? biggrin.gif Kidding aside, mate you have a lot of potential smile.gif I will let Darius tell you a thing or two about the tone you are using, because I am sure he has very important things to say!

Darius:

Tonyk - you're getting better and better. Your tone gets more juicy and Your phrasing ideas are more interesting. I know You brought a lot of job to this one. You're now trying to reach another level of skills so it's a hard moment for You but I'm sure some of the precision and control will come soon smile.gif

Bleez - you my friend allready have Your "bleez-style". Your solos become recognizable. Keep up the good work!

Beat Zbidnen - very cool theme idea! It digs into head of a listener. I couldn't resist to not continue with the harmony over Your take!

DeGroot - as usuall You delivered great combination of technique and phrasing. Love Your new, warmer tone as well. The SM57 was a perfect choice I think smile.gif

Wollace - great to see your intense activity in latest collabs. You always bring something interesting to us! Thank you wink.gif

Doug Lane - somehow Your take fits perfect with Gabriels (either the phrasing and the tone). I just had to combine both. To be clear Gabriel didn't record his take over Your solo! smile.gif He just made his own and then it came naturally to fit both smile.gif As for Your additional tracks I couldn't use as much as You sent us because it was too much going on in the mix....but it was a cool addition for sure!

SpaseMoonKey - very nice usage of sweeps in the mid tempo and finishing all with a piece of melody. Nice to have you on board! smile.gif

tflava - good melodic start. It's nice You always put a long "breath note" after those dense moments. That's a good concept for solo. See you in next collabs!

Alisson Da Silva - another cool concept to repeat the rhythm and continue with different intervals. Thanx for participating!

See you in the next one guys!!

Cosmin, Gabi and Darius

@Gab, I can't be happier with the room, everything is within arms length almost. I can be on the pc reading on here then go man I really have the itch! Learn over kick on the amp grab the guitar and go to town!

@Cosmin, I have to agree, I tried to incorporate things that I have been working on for ages and they fit well. But I agree with the variety, I could have used some better bending. I still play this track to this very day trying to change more and add a different feeling. Because you nailed it sure is out of my normal comfort zone, but it was very rewarding, as it has helped my playing overall. Plus a better understanding of how things can really compliment each other, regardless of how complex or simple they may be.

@Darius, Much thanks for the kind words sir, I've been trying to sweep for as long as I can remember. Was nice to be able to do it that one little string note just rubs me the wrong way, but that was the best take I could get with a video. I plan to join in on more of these in the future as well. I think this has really helped my playing more than just a typical practice. Gotta actually think outside the box!

Piotr Kaczor - You're the Rec master dude! How could I miss Your take in the most famous lesson! smile.gif


SpaseMoonKey - You are always wellcome! smile.gif You tried to challenge some of the hard stuff so it was obvious it's not gonna go that easy but it's a visible improvement and You should continue to follow this path smile.gif

Monica - agree, Winter Tune without Piotr's take is like Chocolate pie without....a chocolate tongue.gif

Hehe smile.gif I should proclaim myself a clairvoyant then tongue.gif Kidding aside, you should try as many out of the comfort zone stuff as possible, because it's a certain recipe for success in what regards your evolution. And I am not necessarily speaking about free jazz or something of the kind laugh.gif

Great to be in such an awesome company! Thanks again to everyone!!
