    First I do my best to play the original solo... Glenn Tipton rules!!!! Then I improvise during the rest of the song... :smoking: Enjöööy :flex:

    Somebody wanted me to showcase the solo from a Blazon Stone song! Featuring my non-locking nut Floyd strat! Stays in tune excellently! :flex: I should fix the electronics, it's been crackling for over a month but I'm sort of lazy to fix I guess :ugh:
  3. Guitar: Tech, Electronics and DIY
    The guy I sold my Splawn to mentioned that he saw a Recto that had its "Solo" function modified to be an FX Loop on/off. Anyone heard or witnessed anything like that before? That'd be a pretty sweet trick to do to my SR50 and Stiletto.
  4. Guitar: Gear Discussion
    Got a pretty usable/decent tone out of this amp from the DI/emulated output...sits/cuts through nicely and not too bassy in the mix.. :yesway: I just used a looped backing track I had on my looper already & jammed the solo over it. (into the looper's input & then from the output into my digital...

    The dim-scale towards the end really makes my brain spin... Took a few days of practicing to even get it this decent :ugh:

    I just tried to play this shit at extra hyper speed and can't do it :flex: This video is kinda pointless... But I do have a plan to record several instrumentals from a few metal bands , probably do not only guitar but drums and bass too. I plan to make them in a bulk so I will probably post...

    ...with ROCKA ROLLAS :flex: HAH!!! Anyway I just reamped the entire upcoming album "Celtic Kings" for the thousenth time so I just wanted to play along with my favorite solo on the entire album for fun :cool: So yeah this is just a half decent playthough not the official recording.
  8. Guitar: Gear Discussion
    I need to get my live rig up and running soon because The Storyteller has some of that coming this summer. But I am completely noob about pedalboards and shit like that. I've never used different channels before, only distortion :flex: I want: 1. Rhythm sound (RED channel) 2. Solo sound (RED...

    I can listen to this solo over and over, it's PERFECT. I know it's not "cool" to like Hammerfall but their early stuff IS good as hell. Legacy Of Kings is maybe one of my top albums. Renegade was good, and then came Crimson Thunder and then I lost interest... but the early stuff will always...

    So Dustin (song writer, vocals) and me (all instruments) is once again coming up with a new Cloven Altar album :flex: If you wanna hear a song from our first album this is a good start; Cloven Altar is sort of NWOBHM influenced but most often leaning towards the melodic speed side of things.

    I swear this is best Rock Music Video in a long time, stick through it for all the surprises (Legends) and I think you guys are really going to enjoy this video. :rofl: It IS PERFECT! I want to see how many of you catch what Paul Gilbert does. :lol:

    Putting down the last tracks for the upcoming Blazon Stone album :metal: The album should be finished within a couple of weeks. Wohoo (I missynched the audio track with the video, but I dont wanna waste more time on this)
  13. Music: Recording Studio
    I mainly did this because I wanted some practice on writing. I mainly just played what came out when I played over the progression. I find sometimes with contest like this people tend to over do it, adding sweeps and playing super fast just to show they can. I also mimed the entire thing and...

    2:08 onwards... The restraint, the vibrato, the melodic sense and note choices, the tasteful use of octave and harmony overdubs, everything just screams taste. :metal: I love Satchel's playing overall, but largely to how melodic he can be.
  15. General Music Discussion
    Enjoy... and share the fuck out if it if you are so inclined. ;)
  16. General Music Discussion
    I fuck up the shit (I suck at sweeps in general :lol: ) at 0:05 but that's what overdubs are invented for :flex:
  17. Guitar: Theory & Playing
    I just learnt this tonight, and I had to get some clues by looking at other videos of it, and it seems like lots of people play this incorrectly. I watched a live video of Marty playing it from '92, and that gave me the clues I needed, then just pieced this together by listening to the studio...
  18. Guitar: Theory & Playing
    I started learning the solos to this today, and they're really very cool parts. There's a really great arpeggio section in the first lead break that I think is like a microcosm of some of his approaches to faster playing. It has an interesting arpeggio, some very deft sweeping, and some...

    I can't decide if I want to get my Kirk Hammett on or not during this solo, so please help me decide. Wah: No Wah:
  20. General Music Discussion
    The frontman of Running Wild has a wide variety of solo licks... But keep in mind I made this compilation a few years ago, so since then they have released more albums so maybe I should make an updated... :ugh: :flex:
