Hi

I am quite busy learning the Enter Sandman solo and I think that after a little month I finally got the first half down, but I'm not so sure about it... It is my first real solo.

Please tell me what you think and what exactly I should improve!

Sounds like some of the bends are out of tune....And some of thhe strings kinda sound like it..It could be your intonation though.
#3
first off, you should improve your tone man. i dunno if it just sounds bad cuz of the camera, but maybe soem reverb and a lil more gain. Also, work on those bends! make sure your bending to hit the correct note. practice those and the solo will sound more professional

Sorry, but its plain terrible

Honestly, improve EVERYTHING. I could prob do better than that, and I dont even play metal.
#5
your getting there, your bends sound a lil off, i have the same problem. im bending either too much or not enough. keep practicing and you'll be posting the whole thing in no time good job anyways tho
#7
despite what everyone says you doing a great job!
honestly i've never seen a 15 yo girl playing the guitar like that!
and you only play serious for 8 months! keep it up girl!

Work on your bends, but other than that you got it pretty good. Your use of the Wah sounds very much like the album does.

I suggest to break up the solo by piece, and practice each one about 5-10 minute or the time you think is necessary.

I thought the second version was much better. Keep up the good work. I wish I started playing when I was your age, I might actually be decent by now. Anyway, keep going on the solo. I thought your tone was pretty good. You kept great time on every part. Strong work. 8/10 from me.

Would you mind taking a listen to my version of Plush?

Yes, I am planning on learning it part by part. I already know the licks but not the other part and the ending yet, I keep forgetting which note comes next on those parts , practising it over and over again will solve it I think.

But were my bends really good on the last video? I'm still not sure, it doesn't sound as flashy as Hammett, but I'm not Hammett ( )...
#20
The bends still need a little work. With the sound coming from the video recording, it is not the greatest quality. Get yourself a recording program like Audacity, or Garage Band or Cubase and you will find it captures your playing a lot better.

Allright I downloaded Audacity, but I'm still using the same mic, my webcam mic so how can the sound be better? I'll give it a try anywho. And about the bends, should I push up the strings higher?
#22
Put the mic about 4-6 inches from the center speaker on your amp. The bends should go just a little higher. And make sure you have plenty of gain on your amp. Have fun.

Allright thanks a bunch.. but.. my amp is on the other side of the room and it's not that simple to carry it over here and stuff.. so I think I'll leave it this way.
And I'll work on them damn bends!!

You have to workout your bendings, there's a part of the solo where you need to bend the 15th fret of B string and play the 12th fret of low E string, you need to bend faster that part.
