I already made my first test rec for this collab and I'm happy to get some honest feedback about it smile.gif
Tell anything you think about the sound, idea and everything. I'm a beginner, so I have many technical and speed limits for playing smile.gif
I'm in like I said before smile.gif this is my first collab so I have to ask few things..can I make a few different parts for same collab or just only one?
Still learning so many things at the same time with guitar training...recording (audio and video)...editing.. and try to find out some good sounds from my Boss GT-10..so many buttons and controllers.
Any tips and feedbacks are good for me cool.gif

Awesome first Collab take mate! It's great to see you evolving so fast in different aspects! I think that your take is very promising and we can use it this one and it would be ok! It sounds melodic and fits good with the backing. Now let's go with some suggestions to improve this one or the next ones. I think that you could continue working the melody, doing variations, improving the parts that are less defined if you want to experiment more with this backing. You can also give your playing more feeling, focus on vibrato, and some other techniques like slides, legato and bending. These ones gives our playing more life.

Regarding your tone, it's ok but I would experiment a bit more with EQ, to make it sound "bigger", it sounds a bit weak. You can experiment adding a tube screamer or sustainer to the tone before the amp simulator, and set the "amp" with less drive. Adding some delay to make it sounds bigger can also help.

As you can see, I give you some guidelines but the key is "experimenting".

Thanks for joining this one and congrats for your great job! smile.gif

Thanks for the scale tips dudes biggrin.gif Im almost turning into an internet meme:
" I dont always play in A major............ but when I do I play in f# minor' smile.gif
Hey Darius, y'know the happiest thing I currently play is your alt picking 2 lesson, I really like playing it but if you do a follow up lesson may I suggest a much sadder / colder version cool.gif

You say 'minor pentatonic ' like it's a bad thing

BINGO!! smile.gif Adding a boost of some kind in front of nearly any guitar sim can really make it PUNCHY and MEAN. I use a ProTone Bulb Deluxe Overdrive with very little gain, mostly volume and the attack switch. Any overdrive pedal will do. Tube screamer is always a great choice smile.gif

Adding a pinch of delay is another great tip. Just a pinch, maybe set to 120milliseconds or so, and a touch of reverb can really spiff up a given patch. Great tips!!!

Good take! you can make some different parts for the collab if you want, or only one, maybe in the video edit don't appears all your take for editing reasons but let us listen to all your creativity if you want.
I remember my fights with imovie and still working in the tone and sound. Amazing trip!! i'll post my take soon!..............................................................

Ok! my take is here!
i use my brand new copy of scuffhamamps for a fast and simple records.
i hope you like.

Very nice man smile.gif As Gabi said, you should keep adding elements so that you will gain more dynamic in your playing. A short and sweet solo can make wonders so experiment with this one and let's see what things you can bring in smile.gif Add one technique at a time - for instance, slides - focus on adding then in the take and we will see what stays and what goes, ok?

Thanks to everyone for good tips and encouraging words wink.gif I'm going to test something today and then we'll see if it's better or just different smile.gif

Nice one huargo! Few questions: Which Jackson model is your guitar..just curious... wink.gif What's the purpose for that band on Guitar head near on the nut? Less noise or something like that or some other purpose?

How to get stronger and louder sound from GT-10, without needless humming smile.gif especially..if my fingers isn't on the strings..when I use PC or anything else biggrin.gif and of course something else than volume totally down...I mean the sound itself...or it's just the nature of this kind of multieffect way to make sound "stronger" wink.gif

Hi Slow! my guitar it's a Jackson Sl3 it's a soloist made in Japan, nice guitar.
The band it's a velcro to prevent noise contained within this type of guitar ... see that video, it's in french but you can understain because it's very graphic..
Maybe you need a noise gate to reduce the humm.. see in your effects list of the gt-10.... if you are recording the take in a pc some daws have this kind of effect too...
seeyou!

Looking good guitar rolleyes.gif , I have much cheaper Jackson DX10D Dinky, but it's not a bad guitar for beginner cool.gif

Thanks for video (it was ok) and it tells more to me than just if it's french text smile.gif

I find out something like noise gate (Noise suppressor) options at least it filter out the noise when I'm not playing....with nice freeware software for GT-10 (FxFloorBoard).

I made something wrong with quote and editing...but it's maybe not a big problem smile.gif

Hey mate - I think there should be a Noise Gate in the GT10 - I had the GT6 and GT8 but that was 6-7 years ago and I don't really remember the settings and such...
