Gabriel Leopardi
Hello friends!! Welcome to a new GMC collab!!

This time we are experimenting with a new idea that started HERE.

Based on Cael's recording, I've created a Track divided in 3 parts (Intro, Verse, Chorus). You can Jam over 1, 2 or all the backings..
Share your audio and video files here and I'll mix it and edit a video with all solos.

Intro: Click to view attachment
Verse: Click to view attachment
Chorus: Click to view attachment

Scale suggestions:





DEADLINE: December 3rd

This was a backing that CAEL and I were going to trade solos over. I'm very glad to see it having a new life on GMC! It's a killer backing and gabe has done a great job with it! Count me in smile.gif

Very nice backing track.
I think ill go for backing 1 and 2. ๐Ÿ‘
Kristofer Dahl
Very inspiring! Cant wait to get jamming over these ๐Ÿ‘Œ
Doug Lane
Haven't even heard it yet, but I'm in! I'll probably have something in tonight or tomorrow. Helix 3.0 came out and I'm EXTRA SAUCED to use those new features on anything I can record! Good to see y'all again!
Gabriel Leopardi
Great!! Can't wait to hear your takes guys!! biggrin.gif
Kristofer Dahl
I figured it would be cool to have some vocals as well, so I recorded some ideas:

I blame you for every encounter
I blame you for every soul
I love what I know about her
But I know that I canโ€™t go on

When reason clashes
With our demands
The righteous calling
And the chilling hands

You live your life and you take the bait
You fall behind and procrastinate
Gabriel Leopardi
Yeahhhh!! That's awesome Kris! It's great to have your vocals again on a collab. This is going to be huge!

I love this idea of incorporating lyrics into the jam!!

Great idea Kris!!
Kristofer Dahl
Awesome you like the idea.

Canโ€™t wait to hear what other contributions we get.

And btw if some one wants to add more โ€˜metalishโ€™ vocal overdubs we might be able to blend them in with mine
Todd Simpson
Vocals are a great idea! Maybe BEN can do some metal style vocals/growls to go with it?

Early days but here is an idea to enhance the intro, it's only subtle. Is it okay ?

Cool - very atmospheric Phil! ๐Ÿ˜Ž

Thanks Kris, I'll do that then and then work on the other parts.

I got a chance to sit down jam on this for about half an hour, fun track! Here's a few licks I'm feeling out for this one.

Thanks Gab,

In what way is it "interesting"?, I just did what I thought sounded good to me but it would be nice to know what you found interesting about it in musical terms wink.gif

The tone is straight out of TH-U Elusive Atmospheres bank and the patch is called Welcome In Heaven God-Like

I find interesting the notes that you are playing, how this notes interact with the arpeggios that I've recorded, and the tone that you chose for your take. It adds a different vibes to the part. I can imagine that this could be the arrangement for this part the second time that it appears in the song.

This is a very cool solo mate! I like the relaxed feel during the verse and how it grows with the backing.

The chorus section has good ideas but I feel that it needs more polish there.

Great stuff!! Thanks!!

Thanks Gab,

I sometimes think "interesting" is being used as a euphemism so I thought I'd ask wink.gif I've had to change the guitar only file for download, I made that video but put the wrong guitar file with it, it's only slight differences but I was wondering why I couldn't sync the audio and video perfectly rolleyes.gif I've put the right one there now, sorry buddy. I know I don't need to redo the video because you add the guitar track yourself don't you?

Nice take Tflava cool.gif

I like it - it has some really cool mysterious vibes to it!

Wow! Very melodic and cool jam! What gear are you using to get the tone?

I never seem to hear things the way you instructors do cool.gif

Stay safe
Gabriel Leopardi
Hello friends!! This is a new mix with Vocals so maybe you can also add fills and arrangements around Kris singing. If you are not inspired to record solos, you can also record small arrangements or whatever comes to mind.

Are there new takes coming? biggrin.gif
tflava
Hey guys,

This is my final idea. What do you think of it?
If its ok i will practice it for a few days and then record it for serious with camera on.

By the way. very cool vocals kris. Sounds real killer
Gabriel Leopardi
I really like it tflava! Now the whole thing sounds great! Many nice melodies. It starts very melancholic and then the chorus reminds me a bit to Maiden! Thanks a lot!!

tflava
Allright thanks.

I will practice it the few days/weeks and then make a nice take. ๐Ÿ˜๐Ÿ‘Œ
Gabriel Leopardi
Perfect! Just in case you like the idea, maybe you can add 3rd harmonics in some parts of the chorus... or I can do it later.
tflava
Yes i think its a good idea. In the beginning part that was originally my idea to write a melody in harmony with the backing part in Em ๐Ÿ˜ but you dont hear that very well because the backing part is softer.

Can you say which parts you mean to play in Thirds? From which time till which time. And i think you mean that i play a second guitar in harmony Am i Wright? Not to play Double stops with one guitar
Gabriel Leopardi
This is what I mean, but much quieter in the mix. I recorded two guitars, one harmonizing your melodies one octave higher, and other one that harmonized in thirds (which is not all the time).

If you like it, feel free to re-record it and change the things that you want! wink.gif

Hi, I've never participated in a collab before - is it fine to only add a small bit and not the full backing track part? This is what I have so far (the ending of the second part). Still need to work on the fast lick before shooting a video though smile.gif

Your solo is great man! It sounds very good, and I love those Maidenish harmonies! Welcome to your first collab!!

WOW blink.gif

My only feedback would be to tighten up that landing note at 00:04 and everyone will think you are the love child of Petrucci & Ronni Le Tekro

Amazing stuff!!!!

Yeah, I kept not being able to get that note right, even after many attemps, so in the end I went with this take. I will work a bit more on it. I rarely work on my technique for picking fast, but this may just be the excuse I need to do so smile.gif Thank you so much for the very kind words!
Gabriel Leopardi
Awesome Cael!!! That solo is a bomb mate!! I can also feel Petrucci vibes here. I need to google Le Tekro... I've never heard of him.

Great job!!
Todd Simpson
Loved it! I really like it as is but if you wanna go again sure!!!!! I say go for it. Dig the scale run up the neck. Sounds like what I was gonna play! Beat me to it. smile.gif
