So here is my final take. I am not really satisfied with it but it's all I can do for now. I just had no time to work on it... however I think I learned a lot again - and that's what really counts for me.


Awesome -

Sound is now as elastic as we expect it to be from you! cool.gif

This is a great solo, I particularly like the low slide which sounds BREWTAL to quote Mr T Simpson. Very cool and unexpected!

I think this collab was a challenge for all of us, and I can say I have personally made tremendous progress thanks to it. This tends to happen when we dare try things that are out of our comfort zone. I think this is what you guys are experiencing as well, and I am hoping people who have followed this collab passively also have learned something.

Big thanks to Vinman for your backing track idea, and thereby leading us in this new direction!

Here's my stuff. It's mostly improvisation, But I made it a point to put a little more fusion into my playing than usual.

Awesome to have you in Doug! biggrin.gif

This sounds great to me as an improvised take. Some comments:

* Your tone is somewhere in between original and too fizzy. But I think this can easily be adjusted in the mix, by lowering it and warming it up a bit.

* Your Queens of the Stone age allusion at 00:22 is really cool and clever (don't know if you did it un purpose). Definite highlight!

* The improvement I can think of are:

1 ) have a little bit of pauses/breathing room throughout the take, in order not to bombard the listener. This will make your phrases sound even stronger. "The actual music happens in between the phrases" is an old saying.

2) Have some thematic repetition. The idea is to repeat some phrases with slight variation. This will make the listener recognise himself (pop songs are great illustrations of this btw). Still I want to say that your solo does take us from point A to point B already, so you have already done a pretty good job here without this technique. However if you have played a longer solo more repetition would have been mandatory.

All in all very well done, great to have you in! biggrin.gif

Yes, that Queens of the Stone Age part was on my mind while I was jamming to this! That part, and the intent to use a Howe vibrato at the beginning were my main points of non-improvisation. I suppose I probably did overplay a little bit in my zeal to match and relate well to the rhythm guitar. I'll keep it more in mind for future collaborations where I will have a little more time to put something more concrete together.

I'm not able to upload my take either here or on Soundcloud! My Internet keeps jamming and then resetting itself, because of this it restarts the upload each time!!

Thank you, Kris! Yeah, this "slide" is really brewtal laugh.gif biggrin.gif Actually it's a dive bomb. I had to do it with the whammy bar because I couldn't get it right when I tried to slide...

Yes, absolutely! It was a real challenge but without this collab I think I wouldn't have tried to play funk - although I really love this style.

Yes, I hope I'll see you in the next one! Speaking of which we should start thinking about what we want to do next.

I came back to this track today after about a week away from it. Pretty much started over from scratch although some of the ideas are somewhat similar. Its not perfect but it'll have to do. smile.gif Hope you enjoy

Ok we would like to proceed to mixing this one!

Sensible should we skip your files for this one? (there are obviously more collabs coming soon!)

That was some high octane funk right there. Nice chops Rustix! cool.gif
PS: I was wondering if and when someone was going to incorporate a wah into their take. cool.gif

Oh man thats right! My bad Phil! Nice job man , yeah it's the autowah but I'll let it slide. tongue.gif The accidental "mouse squeek" at the end of your take makes me smile every time I hear it! smile.gif It just goes to show that accidents aren't always a bad thing.

The enchilada take! I completely forgot about that one, Greg. Sorry man! A wah for the win! I was going to use my crybaby but when I plugged it in I discovered it was very scratchy from years of non-use and collecting dust, and I was just too lazy to clean it up and get it back into shape.
It's on the "got to do" list. wink.gif
