Im surprised no one replied to this thread yet, this recording is awsome. For a minute I thought it was the real thing. Very nice job overall, only thing I didnt really dig was the tone for the distortion bit, too muddy. Great Job

What amp/Fx pedal/s did you use?


I used a digitech rp10.... It's around 10 years old... There's a huge variety of effects like.. reverb, delay, flanger, chorus.... and whole bunch of different tones.

Ah, tender surrender. My favourite Vai song. Great playing. Nice tone for begining, but later, your tone was a bit too muddy. But the playing was perfect.

Excellent.

Minor intonation problems, but far and few between.

Great tone, too - not perfect, but it's hard to imitate Vai's tone back then.

very good
just gotta be careful at the two string bends and slides where you messed up some bits in the first half
eat sleep play guitar

damn good. you near enough played it note for note, which is commendable, to say the least!

As mascot said, a couple of bends were a little off, and I thought you could use a bit more vibrato on the distorted lead bits, but other than that, awesome.

I'm an idiot and I accidentally clicked the "Remove all subscriptions" button. If it seems like I'm ignoring you, I'm not, I'm just no longer subscribed to the thread. If you quote me or do the @user thing at me, hopefully it'll notify me through my notifications and I'll get back to you.

I'll have to put the Classic T models on my to-try list. Shame the finish options there are Anachronism Gold, Nuclear Waste and Aged Clown, because in principle the plaintop is right up my alley.

I have some criticisms. Firstly, get your dynamics in check, on a ballady thing like Tender Surrender, dynamics are vital. Lacking them means the cover didn't grab me.

You intonation needs work, as does your vibrato. Intonation wasn't ever off by much, but still, try to get it perfect.

Overall, congrats on managing a reputable version of a difficult song.

Awesome! Great job!

Is it really as hard as people say it is?

this is really pretty good man! i can't give it a 9 out of 10 because it isn't PERFECT... but it's damn good either way. i would say an easy 9/10.
#20
can you say ummmm????...........BEAUTIFUL COVER. You really sounded like Vai himself. How long did it take you to perfect this song??
#21
Yes this is good, but a 10? No. You havent even used a wah pedal. Technically its great, few mistakes. I'd give it an 8 or a 9.

9.5/10 ---- Performance | A few un-avoidable mistakes but thats ok

8.0/10 ---- Tone | The delay was more of a slap delay than it should have been + no wah and then the distortion was a LITTLE too muddy but overall definatly well done
