Could just link us your main Soundcloud profile.. XD

I kinda like the jazz focus thing, need to work on your tone a bit though, too much reverb/other effects.

Oh snap son, you're a beast. I want to go out of my way to say this because a lot of people on here might think that being a blazing fast player is the ultimate goal, but this is what it's all about right here, in my opinion. I'm listening to "Jazz guitar focus" right now. I'm curious, why did you opt to not use a more traditional tone on that first one? is it originally a fusion track?

EDIT: sick playing on "some skunk funk" dude, that's already a beastly cut from the Brecker Brothers to begin with, but damn.
I'm a dude, he's a dude, she's a dude, we're all dudes HEY!

Thanks man. Well, for one thing, I will almost never use the same sound on everything. So on the first track you mentioned, it was just the way I wanted to approach that track at that time. There are lots of tracks that I used a more traditional tone, so I just go with how I'm hearing it.

Thanks so much for listening. I appreciate it!

Actually, soundcloud is in the process of screwing with their format. I never know what people will see or be able to find when I post the basic link.

I appreciate you listening, and your advice. I'd encourage you to listen to different tracks though, as I use different sounds for different reasons.

Digging have you heard man! Im curious where you got the backing track? Or did you make it yourself? Killer improv as well, nice mix of methenyisms with your own licks. Respect!

Listened to the rock focus...First of all the singer on the first song is sick!!! Guitar playing is awesome! overall good stuff I really dug it. The second song really showcases diversity in your playing style. Nice stuff.

Crit me? https://www.ultimate-guitar.com/forum/showthread.php?t=1579010


Thanks man! I appreciate that you took the time to listen! On that first track, that vocalist is Daryl Black who was on last season of X Factor. He wrote the song, and I played on it for him.

Thanks again!

I'm on a gig tonight, but will give your track a listen in the next day or so.

Thanks man! Yeah I figured Pat had already done his thing over it, which is why I took a different approach.

The backing is one of hundreds produced by a good friend of mine, Bobby Parrs.

Here's a link to his site.

Bah, don't be silly. I appreciate that you took time to listen.

I tried to check your stuff out, that you have here, but neither my computer nor my iPad wants to do the flash upgrade properly.

Do you have your material on soundcloud by any chance?

Incredible.

Are you into Dysrhythmia, Spastic Ink or Blotted Science?

Reminds me of those guys!

Ripping solos at some point, would greatly enhance the wow factor. I'd also suggest deepening the drum mix a bit.

Solid stuff, man!

I just recorded tracks for Star Monarchy bassist Ray Reindeau, who also plays for vocalist James LaBrie (Dream Theater), and it was a fairly complex, heavy track in this vein.

Anyway....

Kudos!

Nice playing! Great pocket on that track man!

A really nicely blended layering of parts throughout!

All of the different tones work great together!

Great job!

I really dig the orchestral and film stuff you've got. Composing stuff like that takes me absolutely forever.

I do like me some Blotted Science now and again, not sure if they influence my music though thanks for the comparison though, even if those guys are like 100 times more technical. And damn, I'd just love to be you XD Any tips for an aspiring media music writer?

Well, build up a good amount of quality tracks. 30 or so. And approach a lisencing site about them carrying your work. I get paid all the time from stuff I wrote 2 years ago.

Make sure you have a solid overall sound and fully develop it before jumping in.

Sweet. Do you think the same would work if I did library sound effects and ambient recordings?

I'm pretty sure there's a market for all kinds of organized sound.

Definitely put something together and inquire about it when you approach any of the sites. Do your homework and look at the sites to find out what they already have available.

Hey man! Awesome Tracks.. I love the jazz guitar focus, the guitar playing is phenomenal, along with the rock guitar stuff as well. Well done! I plan to learn that jazz style to incorporate into my style of playing sometime in the near future. Awesome stuff!
