@bleez: Hey mate, as usual from you... top sound, top ideas, top solo parts! cool.gif

@Darius: Darius, for the first impression, here are my ideas for the collab. I know, the solo needs a little bit more
more more practise.... rolleyes.gif



Well well...So you say it's your very first take? Very good one! Will spot some more details to tweak but overall concept is descent. The idea to play unison with strings is also a cool invitation to record another guitar,playing harmonies in 3rd's. Also I like your "northern" phrasing on the verse smile.gif

QUOTE (Procyon @ Mar 5 2016, 10:14 PM) *
Aahh! What a great backing!! If I can manage to find some time I will be IN, too!


Thank you smile.gif Haven't seen you mate for quite some time. I hope you'll join like in the good old days smile.gif

There is still plenty of time. You know how it's like. Sometimes you can't handle to compose things through a weeks and then simply comes a day you feel inspired by...something that just had been heard or...any other "force of nature" and things will come out just like that.

I think you are trying to play too much at the beginning. Try to focus on a melody you would like to hear in vocals for example. You can then try to boost the tension by playing more or faster or harder...however it all has to have it's point. Your test solo seems to be like a reversed verision of what I've just wrote smile.gif

No no! Please let it be done be someone else in the final mix smile.gif Maybe I'll support you at this point smile.gif

Results will be awesome - I'm sure!
Maybe someone would like to record something like ambient clean backing guitar to be used at some point of the mix ?smile.gif

Been working on changes to my collab piece. Figure I'd submit it for comments for improvements. Still needs some polishing in places before I record it with video later.

I also found, or stumbled upon more likely, that I seemed to play and record better by lowering the guitar volume and letting the backing drive me. Perhaps I am listening to what I am playing too much instead of listening to how the backing is moving and it affects my timing. Too much attention on the sound of my lines while I'm playing perhaps.

You've removed the notes that were creating confusion - that's great. about the backing track it's exactly the same i feel while recording. I prefer my guitar to be digged into the backing and yes - it does affect the timming in a good way smile.gif Well done. I would only suggest to make sure about the intonation. At some parts is goes slightly offt he pitch. Maybe too much finger pressure, scale adjustment or tuning method to be fixed.

Yeah I didn't retune before laying it down. I thought about it but I didn't. Although in certain sections, like the slide up I am pushing it a wee bit sharp on purpose. Maybe to much or combined with tuning drift after a few days of playing.

Sure! I usually don't bother about having perfect pitch while I records just a sketch of the solo but then I really give some time to recheck the tuning (on higher frets too) we all know that guitars do not have perfect intonation se we need to compromise.

Procyon. Those are some great ideas. I like the on the edge quality, dynamics, and melodic content.

Nice one! Is that a blue version of the retro? Do you have the red one too? Love to have one at some point. It's on my "to get" list. It's a long list.

Thanks Todd smile.gif Yes, it's the retro RG 535. I just love anything Wizard I neck. So fun to play. I had a "dirty" neck RG 550 years ago. The Rg XXV is Indonesian made but they knocked it out of the park and the Dimarzzio pickups are wonderful. Don't hesitate to grab one man, they are amazing.. way better than the original RG 550 that I had.
