    OK This is an instrumental with 2 guitars only (mainly cause it's just an improvisation on the backing chords).
    It got a lot of mistakes but bear with me i still like it cause it has soul.
    It starts out well but in the end you'll know i'm just fiddling around ( The end almost embarrassing )

    Damn good. Your guitar sound requires a bit more compression or drive. It's a bit more open sounding for certain things.

    A few places you were thinking of what to play next. My suggestion is dont stop, just go ahead with whatever come to the mind or doesn't come to your mind.

    I dont know how good you are in tapping but it sounded like you need to work on tapping. It could be because of the guitar tone too. Too much open sounding tone is not good for tapping or Legato playing. You need that bit of compression which would have made the tapping sound even. The tapping goes pretty much out of time. If you had played with a Drum Machine or Metronome, you would have realized that it was out of time. The tapping tempo is increasing steadily but the backing is not in increasing tempo.

    I didn't particularly like the Arpeggio Backing.

    Ending is pretty nice. :think: No idea why you are embarrased. :think:

    Okie..heres my honest review

    1. The chord sequence was very impressive
    2. The licks, soloing at the start was excellent
    3. But then i kinda feel u kinda lost it, the tapping part was out off time and somehow that threw the whole track off for me, perhaps because of the oddchord sequence
    4. On the whole, great effort
    5. I liked ur tone, very Satrianisque , what gear do u use?

    It's a huge compliment comparing me to satriani. Thanks

    I actually dont like the solo as such cause the only thing i planned out was the backing ,the intro melody and the tapping part which i just thought would sound nice. This was the first take which i recorded like a year ago (i was 15 at the time) just did'nt scrap it cause it has the feeling i wanted in the song. I dont have much experience with drums and stuff so timing is a big problem for me.

    Get ready for this. The Gear i used is:-
    J&D strat copy and Zoom 505 II only.
    Used the neck pickup. I dont think my guitar's pickups are any good but it feels great to me. I like the Zoom for the clean tones though.

    well the overdrive/mild distortion sounded pretty good

    INFACT it seems u have used the line-in line-out feature with cab simulator ... isnt it?

    coz via normal amplispeakers Zoom sounds quite trebly ...

    Thanks for the sincere reviews. I'm not really good at tapping at all maybe i'm better now but dont know.
    Will try to play with drum machines in future. Thanks for the advice.

    I actually changed the tempo of the song and added a few things to it in the new version. This was an old version and just like Win 32 will become obsolete.

    I actually dont think i used the amp simulator. I dont really remember the settings i used though.

    well since u use the direct line for recording ... do u notice any changes in tone due to use of cab simulator?

    via amp+speaker i can only feel that cab simulator acts like some sorta chorus + EQ effect ...
  13. sridhar11_2

    sridhar11_2 Instrumental guitarist

    I dont have an amp so basically it's direct line. If i engage the amp simulator there is a noticible difference in tone. But without it i feel it's warmer than when the simulator is engaged

    same effect with my KORG on the amplispeaker ...

    it sounds as if the mids and highs have been reduced slightly ... some chorus added ... and strangely some slight reverb too ...

    but anyway i like that sound more :)

    Me. No recording :eek::

    Recording's easy if you use direct line as opposed to sticking a mic in front of an amp. It's easy to add post effects and screw with the sound a bit. Just get a good quality wire and you're set.

    :nw::nw:beautiful..very jazzy..have a feeling that if you rolled your tone control down a bit it would suit this piece even better..just a feeling..I dunno jacksh!it about sound or playing:eek::...but the tapping part did sound a bit off...
