Well, this has been great fun really enjoyed messing around with this, so to everyone, a great big thanks for taking part biggrin.gif biggrin.gif

Ok, first off a huge excellent bloomin great big NICE ONE M8! (anyone tell I`m from Kent?? laugh.gif laugh.gif ) goes to Alex for providing us with an fantastic backing track to jam over, kinda from there I`ve hijacked the whole project laugh.gif sorry m8! rolleyes.gif

I had quite a few ideas for this one, a few unfortunatly just didnt really work so I ditched them and ended up with this, I added a few bits just to break it up from a huge long solo smile.gif Hope this is all ok for everyone.

I see from previous collabs that it is the norm to make comments on everyones performances, I will of course do that individually on each solo but first off want to say that it was really interesting hearing everyones different takes on one backing, so many different ideas, was great smile.gif and of course, I think that everyone that took part played to the best of their abilities (with the exception of Muris of course laugh.gif only joking m8 wink.gif )

(I will add also that I`ll not comment on individuals tone/recorded sound, tone is a personal thing and what one may like others may not etc and the recordings on all of them was pretty good so no grumbles there smile.gif )

ok here goes:

Leedbreak (21sec - 49sec)

Liked your idea for this m8, especially liked the little fiddly bit right in the middle, fitted really nice with the backing, the last part sounded a little rushed imo and I think you should "relax" a little more, to me your playing sounds a little tense and lacks a bit of expression, but I think you spent some time working out a set solo for this and for that I admire you smile.gif nice one!

Smells (57sec - 1m25sec)

I could make a huge long list to critisise myself on this mad.gif , I`ll let you lot decide laugh.gif
(Fluffed a tapped note in the tapping part ohmy.gif mad.gif biggrin.gif)

Alex Lewis (1m33sec - 2m02sec)

Really liked this alot m8! loved the twin part at the end, it was your backing in the first place so it was bound to fit in nice laugh.gif my only comment was the timing at the start of the solo was a little out, other that that, real nice m8 smile.gif

Muris (2m03sec - 2m36sec)

Well .... where to begin???? blink.gif apart from starting in a different place to everyone else laugh.gif wink.gif (let you off wink.gif ) I think we can safely say that this was pretty much gob smacking stuff!! It put a smile on my face from ear to ear and still does everytime I listen to it biggrin.gif Thank you m8 for taking part, you are truly an awesome (and for me a very inspiring) guitarist.

KRmachine (2m44secs - 3min12sec)
Sorry m8, someone had to come after Muris, it wasnt planned I just did them as they where posted biggrin.gif
Honestly tho m8, I thought this was probably the most melodic out of the lot biggrin.gif Speed aint everything, I think what you did here was really nice, the little sweeps at the end where a nice finishing touch, very nice, just more practice m8 and your there, well done! biggrin.gif

Vision (3min20sec - 3min - 48sec)

Very nice indeed m8, you`ve got great technique and nice expression on the notes, my only comment for you would be the commitment at the start of each part, its almost as if you build yourself up to play the licks before you break right into them, when you do tho m8, man they sound nice biggrin.gif I hope that made sense blink.gif laugh.gif nice job tho m8, very good indeed! smile.gif

Owen (3min55sec - 4min23sec)

Ok, finally Owen smile.gif nice start into your solo m8, from there it seemed you got a little lost bringing it back in from time to time tho, I think you had an idea where you wanted to go with it but didn t seem to quite make it work for you, I dont know how long you`ve been playing but soloing comes from jamming with others and working in things you`ve learned and picked up, keep practising m8, you`ll get there smile.gif

Please feel free to comment on the general mix, I can tweak it smile.gif

ok, so thats it sad.gif its all over sad.gif Hopefully I havent offended anyone, just tried to be constuctive to the way my ears heard it smile.gif
Again I want to thank everyone for their efforts, I`ve really enjoyed doing this a lot, thank you biggrin.gif

Enjoy & all the best
Chris

Yeah it's amazing! smile.gif

Can you tell me what does "init" mean? I see to meet it pretty often on forums but never knew what it means!

Ok, finally Owen smile.gif nice start into your solo m8, from there it seemed you got a little lost bringing it back in from time to time tho, I think you had an idea where you wanted to go with it but didn t seem to quite make it work for you, I dont know how long you`ve been playing but soloing comes from jamming with others and working in things you`ve learned and picked up, keep practising m8, you`ll get there smile.gif


Heh, well diagnosed, I've only really started working on my guitar again - after an extended period of doing nothing with it and I'm just getting back into the odd jam session with other people situations.

Playing near 3 year, not very naturally musically orientated so I'm in the process of finding my direction, I did have a rough idea at the start but I'm finding it very easy to run out of ideas quickly. tongue.gif

I'm working on sweeping and phrasing etc at the moment so hopefully next time I'll have something more interesting to work in laugh.gif

phew I`m glad I didnt offend you, that wasnt the intention, try a shot at learning some of the "in the style of" lessons, thy`ll give you some great ideas how to piece a solo together, and I think David Walliman gave a good tip in one of the other collabrations and try humming a solo to the backing then transfer to the guitar and then work on it to get the phrasing etc smile.gif

I dont get offended easily, I'd rather people just told me as is and I know your trying to help me get better so its a waste of time me being angry/upset etc smile.gif

Thanks for the advice cool.gif , I've been predominantly working on rhythm recently so it'll make for a change to do some solo work.

Heh, I dont know how humming a solo could possibly work for this type of collaboration, the one million nps thing frazzles my brain - I can see how it would work for more melodic stuff though biggrin.gif

I think i've got to play and learn other peoples songs more regularily to get more inspiration tongue.gif
