So, I was just fiddle farting around with riffs, and this came out. I actually was impressed with myself, I didn't know I could play like this.

Tell me how good or bad I did, and sorry about the buzz, my reverb pan sucks.

I wouldn't necessarily call this jazz.. But it was pretty cool nonetheless haha. If you want more of a jazz feel, try swinging the eighth notes. This reminds me of something more prog rockish. The chord progression sounds nice.. Maybe add some more chord to it, too. A pretty famous progression in jazz is the 2-5-1. The lead seems to fit well with the chord progression but if you were wanting some more jazzy then try not to do so many bends. Keep it up!

Brilliant jam! Love your tones and the mix is nice too. Sounds a little bit like indian classical (maybe its the minor 6th (?) and the minor 2nd) though I may be off on the intervals. The resonance in the notes really adds to the effect.

Crit mine?

Btw, how're you getting that tone? What effects/signal path etc are you using?

You are what they call a “rhythm guitarist”. While it's not as glamorous as playing lead you can still get laid. Especially if you can sing and play.

It isn't really Jazz, but I can definatelly feel the jazzy vibe you were going for.
I like your phrasing and tone, a lot!
You use some pretty creative notes, you could make it even more 'jazzy' by using more different modes and scales (should work pretty well, since the backingtrack is rather 'neutral', meaning you can play a lot of different stuff on it).

Overall a really nice, melodic and interesting jam!

I'd love it if you'd crit my post: https://www.ultimate-guitar.com/forum/showthread.php?t=1353778

I'm using my Valveking on the dirty channel with the gain really low, and I have to volume way up to get some power tube distortion, and the crappy reverb I have on my amp. I used the neck pickup on my guitar which is a Barenuckle Trilogy Suite.

Thanks for criten my song, I'll crit yours here in a minute.

Interesting stuff man. It doesn't quite fit the bill of Jazz though, its definitely more of a modern rock type sound. A lot of modern bands like Opeth and Between the Buried and Me have this kind of vibe going on, which a lot of critics deem "jazz", but I've never heard that in it myself. If you want to really look into some jazz guitar playing http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=ApI-zA6suXE Pat Metheny is an EXCELLENT first step.

I'm a valveking user as well and I dig the way you say you got your tone, I'll definitely have to experiment with that. Your soloing/melody to the jam was neat, but to really nail the jazz feel go for less bends definitely, and try swinging the 8th notes. Note choice was pretty cool. The defining feature of most Jazz songs is that it is a progression which changes key as you play over it, so try incorporating a keychange (short, maybe only 4-8 bars) in the progression if you decide to lengthen it. That will also really help your chops!

If you get a chance, give a listen to my band's single in my sig. Thanks!
