hey man, just watched ur orion vid. The only part that i didnt care for was the interlude before the slow part. The harmonics sounded too squealy for what that song stands for. Maybe it was because the song wasnt recorded through a computer but either way, it was pretty good. The first solo sounded a tad out of tune but still played pretty well. Id say good job, even though there were some spots that couldve used work you did very well.

Thanks for your comments man! ("Spank Thru" cover) You've got some skill, shredding talent I wish I had If you've got any originals, you should post them. With those chops, they shouldn't be half bad!

Thanks for the crit man, yeah most of the higher range frequency you're hearing there is my shitty camera but I'll work on that, I do tend to overdo it a bit with my pinches and stuff haha. Have you got some covers I can check out??

Yeah man, you did a great job on spank thru, the vocals would be hard to do. Yeah my band are probably gonna be starting to write some originals soon. Have you got any tips on writing you could share? I think getting some decent riffs together is gonna be a major bitch haha

Great stuff here man! Only watched the first 3 or 4 for tonight but I'll watch the remaining ones tomorrow. Great playing. I especially liked the BFMV cover.

And if I had a dollar for everytime I saw that exact Nirvana T shirt.............I'd be wealthy lol

Dude your jackson is sick, just saying. I also watched your unholy confessions vid and you have good rhythmic capability and you are accurate for the most part, so good job man. By the way, how long have you been playing?

Haha thanks, it was 8 months of busking but it's worth it, I was gonna get one with a Floyd Rose, but they can be such a bitch to maintain. Thanks for the crit, I've been playing for about 4 years now. Have you got a thread I can check out?

Hahaha thanks for sharing man. Yeah I used to practice for ages every day, then I hit high school and I don't have the time I used to. Guitar is sorta like my life, but it's the same with everyone on here I guess

Nice job man,

Love the unholy confessions cover ! although i rather have you play along with a backing track then with the original. It becomes kinda hard to judge the playing..

But good job nonetheless !

Keep playing.

Cheers,

I looked atsong 2, I'm in punk rock staff. It sounds ok, from what I can tell of course by what I can listen, I have to say that you shouldn't have the original song playing so loud though cause I believe it covers much of your work.

Please check a punk cover I did of 'I will survive' named 'I...won't survive'.

I just don't seem to get people hear my covers, is there a way to make it work better? Do you know any other sites - if that is allowed?

^^ I have to agree with Greendaz here. You play the original version so loud that I can't tell what you are playing and what the song is playing. It's completely muffled together. It's the little things in playing that make you good, and you cover those up with the song. Of course it's going to sound great if you blast the real version!!

Try doing more stuff without the original song so loud. If you want to showcase your guitar skills, you have to balance it so that the guitar > backing.

You've got some decent stuff there, but you need to focus a lot more on showcasing your talent, not that you can play along with a song. :/


If you do get a chance, you can destroy the stuff I have.

great job bud!!! i really enjoyed them (orion in particular)! if there was any critique i could provide .... i would say go out and buy a Line6 UX1 Pod ... i got mine for about $100. i don't actually use it in my youtube vids, but if you want to do proper recording, it'll REALLY 'clean up' your sound, you know?
