Any Iron Maiden fans around the house? Well, you are in luck! It's time to kick off a new collab featuring an Iron Maiden track and bringing a tribute to one of heavy metal's greatest icons!

Grab your Maiden t-shirt, guitar and attitude - and join us as we unleash the beasts. (hopefully there'll be 666 of ya!?)

Remember! This is the perfect opportunity for you to jam with the pentatonic scale or minor scales, and apply some of the recnt tricks and techniques you have learned at GMC.

Working with collabs give you the type of input you cannot achieve when practicing on your own - so even if you feel shy about this, you should give it a serious try. You will improve in unpredictable ways for certain!

-------------------------------------------

BACKING TRACK: Attached File  Up_The_Irons_Collab_Backing.mp3 ( 2.76MB ) Number of downloads: 582


This collab is based on Gabriel's Iron Maiden for beginners lesson.

Tempo: 110 BPM

Key: E minor

-------------------------------------------

Here's everything you need to know about how to enter this collaboration:

1. Download the backing track and open it in your recording software
2. Record your part in the recording software and with your video cam (if you have the possibility to record video).
You can record anything - a short fill part, rhythm based ideas, or a full lead part (solo).
3. Render one track containing your recording only - 16 bit wave file 44,1 kHz
4. Render one track containing both solo and backing track in an .mp3 format
5. Send us your video (preferably in .mp4 format)

As always, you can send us the last 3 files mentioned, using a dropbox link, or any other transfer service you are used to, by posting them in this thread or attaching them to a private message.

If you can't submit a video, you can send us only the audio files and some pictures of you - it will work out great as well!
The more pictures you send, the better will it be for editing in the final video!

When attaching/sending the collab files, please include the source file of the video as well.

Very important: IT DOESN'T MATTER IF YOU ARE A BEGINNER/ ADVANCED/ PRO/ GOD - all styles, approaches and all levels are welcome and you can even play just a short fill if you feel like it!

Bringing your contribution to this track and tribute to the GMC community is what really matters!

---------------------------------------------------------------------------------
Collab tips:

As in the previous collabs, we want this one to stand out as much as possible, because this will give your playing and progress maximum exposure. So here's what we suggest:

Making short but polished and detailed lines will always give you better results! If you focus on a short part of the backing track, then you will most likely amaze yourself and others! No explicit need to play over the full backing track length, pick any amount of bars you feel most comfortable playing over. It is always better to come up with something short but catchy or memorable!

Adrian Smith Style

Remember - the only thing we require is that you participate and be yourself - there are no rules, and no limits!
---------------------------------------------------------------------------------
Deadline: June 30th

Participants: Cosmin Lupu, Gabriel Leopardi, bleez, huargo, Sensible Jones, Todd Simpson, Jeroen, Ulrik (maybe), Spock, Hajduk

Hi!
this is my take. Tomorrow start a job and i'll be bussy to play enought guitar... good for my pockets bad for my playing.
I steal two licks from Gab and Ben, my apollogies for that guys... but now are mine jejeeje.
If i had time i'll make a more accurate take... some tempo issues here... as always sad.gif
i don't use the first part of the video take for the audio.... i use a more accuratte one. If i had time i try to make a one take only video and audio.
Thanks Gab for this amazing baking track.
Please enjoy the IROOOOOOONSSSSSS!!!

You had me at "Iron Maiden" smile.gif

Your sweeps are very spiff and seem spot on in timing!! Then for some reason when you go in to individual notes, it seems like your timing starts to drift?

It seems like the sweeps would be harder to time, but you are having a LOT more difficulty with the single note stuff? Do you practice sweeps a LOT compared to scale runs and such? Usually I see the opposite in students playing with single note work being more precision and sweeps drifting. So it's sorta odd to see it this way smile.gif Any ideas?

Hi Todd! thanks for your comments smile.gif
I ussually compose the solo and practice for 3 weeks to get better results... the runs are very new compare with the sweep parts thats why sounds insecure and out of time, i finish the composition minutes before the video... and of course are a little bit too much fast for me.
when i record a video or take to a collab i use to warm up for three hours to have better results but it wasn't possible this time.
I hope you like the solo and i promise a better take if my work letme play guitar this weeks

smile.gif

see you in our threat wink.gif

Thanks for the files man! If you don't have the time to fix the timing stuff, don't worry we have great material here in the take! Nice sweeps!

Here's my initial idea. I'll work on it over the weekend and polish it up some, maybe change a couple parts. I had a difficult time trying to come up with parts for the fast rhythm so I just doubled them in places thinking Maiden would do that.

Anyway...
