I've been a bit stressed lately, besides working on my own songs, so maybe I won't be able to contribute much. I'm also not fully able to relate to Kris' lyrics and how they will fit the Metallica style, but I'm sure he knows Metallica better than I do, so maybe he's better for just singing by himself smile.gif

Hey Ben - I was hoping to have presented my ideas much earlier, but life and man flu got it the way. I will be recording this week though - fingers crossed!

I have recorded most of the vocals, and just started mixing/editing - here is a mini teaser so you can get a feel for what I had in mind:

Beautiful!!!!!!!!! This reminds me a bit to St Anger's vocals! Very rocker, very hetfield! This is VERY promising.



The post 90's Metallica's album make me think on this cool album.



Just some random comment to bring more inspiration... biggrin.gif

Awesome you like it! biggrin.gif That's a really cool COC track btw

Here is draft mix of the whole thing!

LYRICS

4, 3, 2, 1

You hear me count the days left to the new world order, you hear me count

When you groove so nicely
I get surpressed 'cause you’re bouncing on my chest

When you speak so freely
I loose my mind 'cause I’m fed up with your kind

With a thousand lies and a temple of stone
Dig for fame, spread your name, but the blame is…

…on you!

Hear me count the days left to the new world order, you hear me count

We’re off to guitarmasterclass.net

hahaha this is so awesome!!! I think that this will be the best GMC track we've done! It sounds like a metal HIT!!

Your vocals here are VERY personal and made this "in the style of Metallica" song sound very personal. The pre-chorus is just perfect, where I imagined some very low (hetfield/anselmo style) backing vocals that I can record by myself. Very subtle but I need them!

In the first heard I loved everything except the "on you" section, but after some more hears I started to like it and understood that the silence there make the overall song more balanced.

Finally, I really liked that you've used the same intro melodies and lyrics over the final riff, now I think that it will work as the chorus, isn't it?

Agreed - the vocals in that part should just be used as backing choir. I think we should have a guitar melody or something there!

GREAT backing and a killer idea for a collab smile.gif Here are my bits for the project.

Here is a preview vid.


With and Without backing .aif files on dropbox. Clearly labled per file.

ELEVEN RACK PRESET used in solo
Attached File  MetallicaCollab.tfx.zip ( 1.22K ) Number of downloads: 40


I"m using my HOTONE WAH on the solo but replaced it with the 11 Rack wah in the patch. I've also swapped my FCP1010 midi foot controller for this PEAK midi controller. It's smaller, has metal switches, not plastic, easy to read display, solid as a rock. If you have a Behringer FCB1010 I'd say ditch it asap and swap to this setup. This wah pedal can act as a controller for the 11 rack or it can act like a volume pedal or a traditional wah. Super handy and super portable.

Thanks Laurent, this one was a lot of fun- there is something about metal music with a groove, that makes it irrestable to me!

Awesome Todd!

Any more takes? I am currently jamming over this one and hope to get some guitar jamming recorded as well.

I jammed over this backing for a bit earlier today and although I am not really a Metallica fan, I liked the backing track.
However I think parts of the backing were hard to play in timing so I decided not to record anything. smile.gif

Hi Alex! I'd like to hear a take from you to give some feedback about how to be able to play in timing over this backing. It can be really helpful for your playing. You can share your take here, at the mentoring program or even via PM.

Remember that the main purpose of this collabs that GMC students learn by making music.

Hi Laurent, I like your ideas on this one VERY much. If you still have some extra time I would adjust your tone which has too much treble/presence, and if possible practice a bit more the take to make it sound flawless. It's a very cool composition and could be much better with this two fixes.

Some specific parts to review:

First licks: Vibrato could be more consistent , and the 00:07 trill could be cleaner.
00:10 - What about ending the lick on another note from the chord sounding in the backing?
00:15 to 00:20 - Adjust timing.

About vibrato, I think that you could go for a slower and wider vibrato on this one. It would sound less "nervous".

I can use this take for the collab, but in the case you have more time, you have some guidelines on how to improve it.

Thanks for joining!!

Damn that was good. I mean, freakin A. that bit at 2:12 was particularly nice. Really the whole thing.

!!!!Folks, please do not let this throw you off and think that your take won't work. Every take is a good take people, it forces you to play and move ahead as a musician. Kris has been doing this for quite some time so it's a great example of the power of PRACTICE. Submit your own examples pretty please smile.gif The more takes the better!! !!
