Beautiful guitar tone, but a bit too loud in the mix IMO.
I like how you express yourself. Few notes, heartfelt...
Nice use of the whammy bar to prebend notes too! I like some of the pinched harmonics here and there too. The whole bag of tricks is out! :thumb: :thumb: :thumb:
this was awsome Rid.. really loved your tone on this.. the emotion in this really set the tone.. great work here.. i really liked the little subtle whammy expressions.. thats an awsome backing as well, seems like it hypnotizes ya in your own little world.. always love hearin your tunes, keep em comin:bowdown: :bowdown: :icon_thum :icon_thum
PS.. was wonderin if you might be interested in collabing sometime on one of these slow pieces?
Thanks guys...very kind of you all.
Heh yeah I had it loud because I wanted the dynamics from a whisper to loud.
and the pinches where divebombs in disguise..hehe love them
Plus the neck pickup really is loud and fat on this guitar.
That would be awesome GW:bowdown:......
Hehe Gibson that is quite ok, and thanks once again
Excellent phrasing. Parts of your playing remind me of Allan Holdsworth and that's awesome that you can play that way.
I thought the guitar was a bit loud, as mentioned above, especially toward the beginning of the song. Compression on the song can help even things out a bit and still keep the guitar part prominent during the soft parts.
I like the mood and theme behind the song. I can relate. Bring back the sun!!
Thanks man...very kind indeed.
Well I do not like compression much.....I have had quite a few, I always end up disconnecting them:smirk:
Because no matter how good they are...they always muck up the dynamics I like.
Plus it was abit on purpose...wanted it as naked as possible....I am a sucker for clarity
Anyways the backtrack can drown one out...it is very hypnotic...hehe
I hear ya on the compression. There's a fine line between when it sounds good and when it just ruins everything. I've had some reasonable luck with a plug-in called Endorphin (a freebie) and I've heard some stuff done with Ozone 3 (definitely not a freebie) that was really impressive, but those can be overdone too.
