    Dude... I dunno what new toy that is... But I sure do hope it has a warranty...

    And if you’re saying this is better than your first version (which I don’t see on this thread but it is on your SoundCloud channel)... Sorry to break the bad news to you... But no it ain’t!!! LOL!!!


    P.S.

    I assume it’s an Octave pedal or something???

    No you don't get it. It supposed to sound like that

    Actually I listened that again after posting it (and edited my post). I did recall it to be much worse than it actually was... Damn...

    Still don't quite like the tone in that.

    EHX Frequency Analyzer. It adds a note lower to the key (and higher as well if set with a switch), which is controllable by two knobs with different frequency sweep: Basically every note outside the root starts to get all sorts of funky dissonances. Makes lead playing like dancing on a minefield with some really sweet overtones emerging when you hit the right note.

    Really a weird thing that needs some work to figure out.

    Hey, hey.

    I assume that's without your new toy??? Sounds better anyway. You take it back to the shop or what??? LOL!!!

    Now listen. Just tryin' to help here.

    Nice. Much better. And I can see where it's going i.e. I can feel and hear your idea right up until 0:36. But at 0:37 something goes distinctly pear shaped I'm afraid. Maybe also wouldn't hurt to mix the guitar down just a notch and maybe add some delay and reverb maybe??? But that's a personal choice of course.

    But hey: if nothing else you're at least taking the time and going to trouble of submitting stuff. Good on you.

    It doesn't really have "an idea" in it... Just improvisation. What the heck means pear shaped?

    It actually does have both delay and reverb. Sounds just right in room, but recording might warrant a bit more.

    Well in this instance: "pear shaped" means out of tune (as in notes that don't fit with the key of the track) and therefore a bit hard on the ears (at least between 0:37 and 1:10). Not quite sure of another nice way to explain.

    Reverb and delay: must be a nice big room!!! LOL!!!

    Listen up. Don't get upset. Just giving you my opinion is all.

    No offense taken. It's always good to get feedback for improvement.

    I wasn't sure if you meant "doesn't go nowhere" with "pear shaped". I was holding it back up to the major part, and I agree it did came up bit off sounding.

    Earlier revision I actually played Locrian through first part and the ending for the same effect.

    BTW: I like my echoes subtle.

    Why would you play Locrian?
    This song is in E Aeolian/G Ionian.
    The music dictates what you play, not the other way around.

    Why not

    It actually sounded really good over the clean parts. Only ditched it because the middle part before major sounded crappy.

    Why not? Because itís wrong.

    We clearly have different ideas about what sounds good.

    No offense but you donít at all understand the concept of modes. I know you think you do, but you really donít.

    Nah. I see theory merely as guidelines for making music.

    I'd like to hear in what way you think I don't understand them, but that would be long misunderstood dialogue and I don't want to derail this thread.

    OP updated. Looks like we have 10 participants so far, tied with last time (let me know if I missed yours however). I know I haven't gotten mine in...lots going on in life right now and many other priorities when it comes to recording, I will get one in eventually though.

    So far lot's of good stuff. If you are looking for constructive criticism, please declare so when you post...but don't get too defensive either. The point of this is to have some fun and learn from others. Keep 'em comin'!
    TOUQUE ROCK...EH???? I AM CANADIAN
