Thanks for the feedback for my first one, here is the second one.
idea, a small jam to learn the ropes.
Only have 2-3 more to get off my workbench,
then maybe approach a mic (scary thought).
Some very slight timing issues here but I like this side of your playing pingcat. More melody driven than riff driven. A taste of Santana in there too. Very nice!
Must’ve been mixed by a guitarist, given how high the guitars are in the mix.
Just kidding, Ping, don’t pay attention to me. I say it’s time for the mic.
Yeah, the whole drums/bass went thru a large overhaul when I realized
n-track drums wern’t doing it and went with the cool ezdrummer.
The tune had been completed months ago(with original ntrack drums).
It was sort of like a heart transplant, technically I should have
started over I suppose.
And then I rushed a last minute bass track to match the new drums.
Where is the timing off the most obvious to you?
exactly what I want to hear.
I tried, many different solo
levels, the last mix I upped them a bit, should have left them where
I hear just slight lead parts getting ahead of the track a bit in the 1:20 area and again around 1:55 - Most folks wouldn’t even hear 'em though. Being a trained professional and all I have to suffer with my own perfectionism.
Thats great that you picked up on that.
Youre right of course.
I noticed it,
but thought the overall feeling of the solo was good (IMHO of course), so I let it ride.
I also think I am a bit out of tune at the very end (1:55 again), but again, I liked the
I thought you were going to beat up my rhythm guitar player and bass man.
back, they didn’t take into account that I would fire the crappy drummer and bring in a
great drummer to kick it all up a notch.
I told the guitar players to turn down (and that it isn’t all about them).
I upped the drums a bit.
And remixed and put it out there, same link.
I might need to tame the bass a bit, its that rule, adjust one frequency range and you
change them all.
I could go on, but I think I am just going to be happy with it, otherwise I might end up
throwing a bucket of ice at myself.
Yep - in most cases, feel trumps timing. Great track!
Yep, good tones and playing, nice one! Has a good slow feel to it and some great moves on the guitar neck!
Like this Ping…great tone on the guitars and nice feel to the whole piece. Keep going buddy, get some vox going and you’ll come up with some great songs!
Timing issues?..just get Cozy Powell on drums and you’ll be slightly behind the beat (well…if he was still alive of course)
Cool sound. some nice changes in the guitar lead sound and interesting jazzy melody. I find reverb seems to loosen up the thightness of a lead guitar part in my limited experience w effects. Then crunch it to mp3… This may be what happened at 1:20, but the whole piece has some great changes, this being one of them, and holds up just fine.
