I would have been part of this and had most of my solo composed and just had difficulty recording it because my fingers kept failing on me.

It shows I need to practice more and record myself more to see exactly how good I am, it's easy to lie to yourself when you're just playing in the moment!

Playing in the moment is great fun BUT your brain tends to fill in the bad bits with good bits. This is why recording yourself as much as possible is good for your development. I always press record whatever I am doing. If you get your setup sorted so that recording yourself is simple and all you have to do is press one little button you will reap great benefits wink.gif
Cheers

This is a great idea smile.gif even if you just put up your cell phone and record that way. Just having a handy recording to listen back to is very helpful. It will keep you very honest as you can hear things when you are listening back that you don't hear when you are playing.

Ok friends!! I've finished the mix and video for this collab!!

I've worked hard to make this one sound like a song. I focused mostly on taking the most melodic phrases that you've provided in order to make this one sound musical. You'll find that some players appear more than others but this doesn't mean that there were weak takes in general, I prioritized the overall song, and that why also noted that there wasn't place for me on this one, I'm just the mixer. biggrin.gif

I want to say thanks to each student that take time to be part of this one and special thanks to CHRISGLP for providing such an inspiring backing. I can say that it's one of the best colabs I've ever led.

I've hope you enjoy it!

I'll be back with some extra comments on your takes.


PS: Also special thanks to GENET95 for drums and bass, and JIM S. for the strings.


COMMENTS:

Beat: What a tasty take mate! Your tone fits perfect with this backing and reminds me to Petrucci and Steve Vai. This doesn’t mean that your solo doesn’t have personality, your phrasing is very personal. It has a good balance between melody and fast playing and the note choices are lovely.

Cael: I’m glad to see you again on a GMC collab. The first thing that comes to mind when listening to your solo is that your tone is perfect! It has the right amount of drive to sound clean but with sustain. Your phrasing is interesting, it’s uncommon and not predictable. There are some parts that would sound better with some adjustment but the good thing is that you are “searching” here, that’s the spirit. You should do more of this melodic stuff.

ChrisGLP: You not only recorded the amazing piano for this collab, you also provided killer rhythm guitars and the perfect melody for the pre verse. Let me say that you rock Chris. Thanks for this inspiring stuff.

GenteT95: Your bass and drums added a lot to this collab. It make is sound like a real song. Your solo sounds good, I like your clean tone that is at a mid-point between Frusciante and Buckethead. Your phrasing has some great moments but it also has many parts that are not completely clean and defined. You should work more on this solo, isolate the strong parts and re-work the ones that are not consistent.

Jim S: Thanks for your strings contribution; it makes the final mix more epic. Your solo sounds very cool, I like how you manage rhythm and staccato. It makes it sound very unique and adds something fresh to the final mix of this collab. Your playing has a big potential, I’d like to hear more soloing from you. Good notes choices, and tone. Just need some polishing (technique and some phrases direction).

N3m57: Nice guitar! IT reminds me to my first Ibanez. Your tone is good, I would just adjust a bit presence or maybe lower some bass frequencies, to make it sound clearer. My favorite part is the chorus (starting at 1:12), the melodies there are so epic and that double guitar ending is top level.

Phil: The cooler part of your solo/video is how tasty your phrases are. It’s one of the tasties jams that I’ve heard from you and this means that all the hard work done in the previous months is making effect. My favorite part is from 00:00 to 00:50, then there are some bends out of pitch and less tasty melodies (in the chorus). Then, when the verse 2 starts, the tasty Phil comes back.

Procyon:
You solo is pure melody. It’s been tricky to choose the best parts of this killer solo but I’ve decided to go for the chorus. You have to be careful with bending (pre-chorus) and maybe work a bit more your tone that has room to fit better with the style. Your phrasing and note choices are great.

Fzalfa: I’ve said many times to you that I love when you go melodic. This solo is pure melody and has many interesting phrases in both the verse and the chorus. In the chorus I hear pitch issues related to bending, but also to your guitar, or maybe doing too much pressure with your fingers when playing. I think that the amount of drive fits good with this backing, but some EQ tweak would make your solo stand more. I would try increasing frequencies around 3000 hz.

Sensible Jones: Great to see you back here! I like your solo, how you connect the different phrases until the chorus, and your tone. In the chorus I think that your solo loses a bit direction, but then comes the second verse and you make your guitar cry, in the good sense.

Tflava: Your playing is wise. I like how your phrases are very clear and your use of silences. You need to be careful with bending, mostly in the pre chorus and chorus where the pitch issues ruin the nice ideas that you are playing. Your tone is ok, but I think that there is room to continue polishing it.

Tom: It’s great to see that your work on the improvisation workouts is having a big impact in your playing. The thing that makes your solo GREAT is that you don’t try to play things that are over your level, you stay at a comfortable zone and focus on phrasing, simple but tasty melodies. The note choices is very enjoyable, and your tone perfect. Well done!

yeah mate, it's very difficult for me to edit these type of collabs with lots of great solos from everybody. Most of the times the selection is related to how the different phrases and tones connect with each other instead of how great a solo is. In this case, I prioritized the most melodic parts since this is a piano ballad. This final mix is what I think is the cooler song I could create mixing everything and trust me that I took the time to hear carefully each take.

By the way I would love to hear new remixes of this collab made by students, what do you think? Would you create your own final mix of this collab? It's a very creative process and and I can help you if you need assistance with mixing stuff.

And I have to say that I feel sad of knowing that this collab can make someone feel sad. sad.gif I put all my love on this and my only intention of making music together, have fun and learn in the process.
