Hi Guys,

I have been busy recording a new cover again. This time I have chosen Heaven and Hell because my life is full of it. Mixed with Metallica Wherever I May Roam. Then throw some evil in... And there you go for an evil 4:57 minute ride through Heaven and Hell smile.gif

Hi mate! Congratulations on this video! It's amazing. The video edition, lightening, video quality are top level! These type of videos are very useful for promotion at youtube, so it's a great idea to add the information about your EP in the video description. I became curios about who sings the track... is that you? If not, it would be cool to add the name of the singer. The combination of both songs is very interesting, I would really enjoy to this this medley live, it's a great idea. Well done! smile.gif

I have some comments about guitar tone and playing that maybe can be useful for future videos. At first, I think that your guitar tone for rhythm guitar needs some EQ adjustment. EQ is very subjective so maybe you can take this as a taste opinion but I think that your tone has too much frequencies in the mid bass range, and that makes the double guitar too fat for the mix.

Your playing is becoming better and better after each new recording. I think that you still have to focus on timing when you play both rhythm and solo, and off course on getting a more solid and clear alternate picking technique to make your solos sound more defined. Timing can be improved with more concentration, while polishing your technique can be achieved with more practice based on the weak points.

You did a killer job, and I totally encourage you to continue working on videos like this one, but at the same time I like to mark details that will keep on improving your material.

Keep on rocking friend. smile.gif

Howdy Jeroen! Wow mate - you never fail at impressing when it comes to making up great videos! Your playing is clearly up the ladder since last time, so congrats on time well spent practicing and developing your skills!

I agree with Gabi on the observations, so to sum things up:

- timing - you need to focus on playing the parts of the songs as close to the original as possible and also, watch out for the part in which you switch to the Metallica tune - you are playing it a bit different than they do in terms of timing - was it on purpose?
- polishing your technique and becoming tighter when executing lead lines - this of course comes with practicing and gathering experience smile.gif If you are to ask me, I'd recommend a nice lesson combining legato and alternate picking which can really help you focus on cleaning up technique:

Let me know what you think and if you need help with this lesson, I'm a PM away wink.gif

Hey Jeroen.

What are you using for your tone? It sounds like you nailed Tony Iommi's guitar sound.

Is it a computer based amp modeler by any chance?

Thanks guys, I always listen closely to your comments on my vids and try to improve every time. I'm gonna practice again in the next few weeks to get better and better. AP is one focus point, timing is the other one. Thanks Gabriel and Cosmin for supporting and helping me!

Wish I could sing like that! Next time I'll mention the name of the singer, this track is from a backing track site.

@spock. The guitar tone for the rhytm guitar is recorded with a Roland Cube 30x. Guitar 1 is set on R-Fier (rectifier) while guitar 2 is set on metal with the following settings:

Attached Image

The solo are played with no reverb and a lot of delay

The rhytm guitars are panned, gtr 1 is 90% left, Gtr 2 is 90% right.

Then with a parametric EQ in FL Studio I tweaked it a little:

Rhtm gtr 1
Cut off at 310 Hz
A number of settings on specific EQ's if you want I'll send you a screenshot.

Rhtm gtr 2
Cut off at 310 Hz
+5dB at 5992 Hz

Lead guitar
Cut off at 310 Hz
A number of settings on specific EQ's if you want I'll send you a screenshot

Always a pleasure mate wink.gif It's great for us as well to see that you implement our suggestions with success wink.gif That Roland Microcube is a very useful and capable little amp - totally unexpected, right? smile.gif I tried it for a few days while a friend owning it, left it in my care while he was away smile.gif It sounds killer for its size and specs! Did you mic it or plugged it into the interface?

Hey Co, normally I mic my Blackstar Ht5r. But as the tubes are being replaced I recorded this one through my old Cube. It's plugged into the interface. And yeah, it's sounds pretty good for a reasonably cheap solid state amp.

This proves once again that you don't need an enormous budget to make things sound good when recording - but indeed, you need to search a bit until you find the right tools and also, this 'making things sound good' concept, can only go up to a certain point, as our friend tonymiro many times pointed out. There's a level that can only be achieved if we invest money in recording in a professional studio and especially, on where we can collaborate with a sound engineer that knows his job well, be it micing, capturing sound and being there with you when you record to provide an impartial ear. After that, the mixing and mastering comes in and that's another job where you would need the assistance of an experienced engineer. Of course, you can learn stuff on your own and experiment, as that's the key to improving your sound every time smile.gif Just a few thoughts on the processes, but all in all, I think you did a great job here wink.gif
