ok, I've added some of the riffs now, and I recorded a little part of the solo just to let you know where it starts. I also moved the riff that didn't really fit, but maybe we should take it away. What do you guys think?

For starters I'm thinking 8 people should play a solo. So just send me your solo without the backing track!

Who's up for this? smile.gif
(you don't need to use the PODxt preset for the solo)

Here's the updated file:

I'd love to contribute, but I lack a PodXT and a microphone, and the money to buy either.

One question though, will this collab have a tab and/or a lesson too?

Well I like it...... the idea on the different key solos might make for some tricky rythem through that part of the song im thinking.........to make it all work out cause the main focus is to keep the song in you head and.....thats where the ending comes in..........love the double time lynch mob feel to it but when the song ended i was like umm how did the song go again......you know what i mean......IM not saying its bad or anything......the solo was definatly awsome as allways ........but thats just my view on it........lol please dont beat me for being honest

I think the bridge to the solo should go back to the begining of the song, bridging between the intro and the verse, like it used to be.

I'm trying to come up with a bridge to the solo, but I seem to have little to none creativity today, so far I thought it should be something quiet, maybe even acoustic, and prehaps with some soft vocals. If I think of something I'll let you know.

Ballistic, I hear you! and I also agree with you! smile.gif

Nick came up with a riff that has similar feel as the intro, so I put that after the solo riff and changed the key to E. It's very critical to change the rythm this way, but I think it works ok. We get the key-change, plus it's a little "reminder" so the listener don't forget how the song goes smile.gif

Here's the updated file:

As I said, this is very critical so I need your opinions on this!

I will still try to send in something for these ASAP. However, this puppy is growing to fast for me to keep up with. I play a lot every night but I can not stop working on lessons as I am bordering my dream speed and I am addicted.
Great work though, and a great song.

I see it already as a crown for the GMC Empire.

PS: Marcus, you could upload your solo XT patch

There's something about that riff that doesn't seem to fit. When we had it in the beginning of the song, even my girlfriend reacted on that it didn't fit (that says a lot). Maybe the best thing for the song would be to take that riff out completely, and come up with something different?

Perhaps change the bridge but i think the beginning should be left alone i think it's great the way it starts the song off. That's just what i think up to you guys though

Yeah, I think it will be for the best, but till someone comes up with a new bridge to the solo, leave it as it is smile.gif

We are getting close to finishing it, I'm getting excited!

I think the key change brought the song back very nicely.....I have been working on a bridge for the solo. the idea I have is mixing the 2 riffs the rythem riff and the corus riff makeing a new riff out of them both...... played 4 times then moveing the whole thing up one whole step for the build ...........then right into the lynch mob feeling part.......I should have it to post on sunday night.........that will also give the bass player a little fun.........so let me know what you think........cause i can change it if you think that would be to much.........oh and great job mixing in the solos smile.gif

It changes to E at 02:36 min. I've recorded a test solo there so just start playing where my solo stops, and go on until the backing tracks ends.

NOTE: All solo spots in the key of D is now full.
I need 3 more people to come up with a solo in the key of E smile.gif
