Real nice Ash!! :rock:.....Love the tone, and the arps & sweeps without a bunch of saturation, says alot about your technique. Also like that real biting sound off the pick on the singles. A little busy in some spot's, but hey, thats what makes it " improv " right?. great job :thumb:
Well Ash I am stunned by this one. I expected Ash 220bpm playing 16ths all over it. But this is really gorgeous feel over technique playing. What is nice about the sweeps is they are incidental and not the main motif. The focus of the track is melody all the way through. This is possibly your most impressive work imo. Absolutely top notch stuff.
btw i know a lot of people say that i overplay or am too much into tech.. it's true i'm a tech freak but I focus on the music in my head, besides all the borring practice that i started doing right away when i began with the guitar, I also trying to pay moer attention to the note choices i would choose most commonly in my head, the ones that i would feel in my head, and a lot of them unfortunatlly are not too guitar friendly or designed for the guitar..regardless i put a lot of time focusing on what i would do over a track or background music singing (lol you'd never catch me singing even in a shower but i can hum ok i think lol) and just practiced those ideas to hell. Also.. I always felt that the more technique the better because the faster you can get those notes you are hearing in your head on the fretboard (means pretty much a lot of practicing boring stuff too lol) the closer the music will come out as you feel it. I don't think that you should ever comprimize what you truly feel in your head because of lack of enough technique. I like to think of myself as a musician more then a guitar player, using the guitar as a medium for my music.. that said lol i'm also a wank freak so yeah i over do lol I never was into many sports xept a phase of body building at one point lol So consider some of my wankage as my effort to be a sport person at times lol
