They sound slightly off time to my ear and some of those bends sound a little out of tune. Not a big fan of the big vibrato notes every few seconds either. I'm really critical though. Maybe if there wasn't a drum loop? I guess for off the top of your head they are okay, but I wouldn't say those are truely quality recordings. How much focus do you put on accenting notes? Do you tap your foot or anything?

Sounds pretty good for made in under 5 minutes. I like the tone. What's your rig and recording setup? I couldn't tell if your timing was off in spots, or maybe the drum loop was a bit inappropriate to what you were playing, which is probably hard to avoid.

If you want advice of something to work on, I'd say that when you break into fast picking, sometimes it didn't seem to make sense for where I thought the tune was going, so it didn't flow as well as it could have.

Keep it up! :beer:

im aware of the timing in some of them is sketchy.

My rig is -> fender HM Strat direct into TSL 60 head and 1922 Cab

Just to add, im not the kind of person who will spend 30 minutes recording a 30 second clip and getting it perfect as its only going on the net. Im more like > grab a loop press record and play! hell i dont even use a real mic, i use the one built into my mac monitor!

cheers, any more? :)

ill give you constrictuive critisism, seeing as ego inflating probably wouldnt help you improve.
not bad, but you seem to be mixing styles:
kind of cromatic shred metal notes with stoner rock paterns.
if thats what you wanted then ok, but it doesnt really work for me.
a backing track would help to get an idea of what your trying to do.
also fix your bending.
soloing ist just about playing, its about messages, and i didnt get any from.
if there were beautiful melodic bits, i missed them because of no backing track, not alot of anger either.

when i play, i think about what im trying to get across, and it shows though.
could you play pachabels cannon if you were burning with rage?
or domination while thinking about relaxing?
just my opinion

Thanks for the advice!
None of the semi-fast picking was chromatic however!

i kno my bends are off and i can improve them but i didnt really spend very long on these!

thanks for you advice!

Amon rA 2004-12-01 17:18

i didnt mean that.
i meant your slower more rockier bits werent in any obvious key. but never mind
