My Solo & Outro Solo on `Heres To A Better Future` by Bernd & Lookn. Not accepted (YET). So, I thought I would upload it here to see if it can gain some interest as this tone was a kinda interesting experiment. Phase 90 in front of the amp + Wang bar Vibrato.

You'll get multiple nods of approval from me - it's not only a really well crafted tone, but very well put together in the song. Quite clear and right at the right level in this mix, i.e. you can hear the articulation of those runs quite well, but it's nowhere close to overbearing in either volume or treble content, and the stereo movement is a nice touch. Pretty slick, fella.

Lithium I really appreciate the kind words. I have suffered most of my life with `Treblephobia`... I have nightmares of being stuck on stage while the drummer is soundchecking the snare drum but I left my ear plugs backstage... Jokes aside, Yeah the movement from the Phaser before the amp sounds pretty cool. I have been doing the same thing with a stereo chorus but it needs to be set super subtle or it can start to get a little too 80`s.

Not accepted? That is a difficult one for me to comprehend. It's awesome, and just as Chris said, well mixed also

Cheers W&W. Yeah, I realized recently that its worth uploading a mixed panned, Volume automated version of a part before the track is mixed as that way if they want dry ver they can ask for it. As opposed to a mixing engineering taking a part that was supposed to be really subtle and inserting it at like 1000 decibels. Not accepted OR maybe just forgotten/overlooked. I play on a lot of Bernd songs cause they really bring out they really bring out the 13 year old shredder in me.

as far as I'm concerned, you should have that control over your contribution, and it makes for the best result. It's good to offer the dry, but I bet it's rarely an improvement over your own intended sound, level, stereo spacing, etc. You are an outstanding guitarist, very fitting to each song

I always ask for both. There's no accounting for what the mix will demand if the project owner (or his chosen mixer) know what they are doing. If you like the lead player's tonal set-up, having the dry track gives you something to add secret sauce to, or even just basic EQ type adjustments, without changing the creator's over-all original vision. Without a dry track, such adjustments are impossible. There's also dry and DRY... unless a mixer is REALLY good, the original flat signal track won't do them any good because too much information about what made the full track cool is missing. I like to ask a lead player for that DRY track, plus a track where they seriously tone down things like phase, delay, reverb, etc. but otherwise keep the basic tonal structure of a track, so that I can add or subtract these elements as needed for the song. As good as this sounds, and I think it sounds amazing, it isn't mixed very well. The mix underneath the lead work isn't all that good. The vocal needs work, the levels are all over the place (things too loud in some places and too soft in others)... basically, the solo needs to be mixed in from jump street with all the tracks at the same time. Performance-wise, the solo work is excellent. It's perfect for the song. I'm speaking here only of mixing issues and requirements. Can't imagine why the project owner didn't jump on this right away.

Dry and DRY, Yeah I feel that. Especially as everyone?s ears are different. A pleasurable frequency to one person is the most horrible sounding frequency to another. I even sometimes listen to the track without my guitar before recording and listen out for frequencies that I know will become a problem after adding guitar and specifically avoid/take them out just so that it can?t be missed by the engineer later on. That?s not a stab at any of the engineers on KOMPOZ either. There are Justin Bieber tunes where the acoustic has some horrendous frequencies piercing through. That?s like super high level shit but still We can all overlook that stuff. I appreciate your kind words on the guitar playing. As for the mix, this was just the demo ver. so it?s most probably un-mixed. I?m actually a big fan of this composer/vocalist so I am pretty biased. His final mixes always sound huge and he is one of my fave vocalists of recent years.

There is almost certainly a healthy balance. I think aiming for a personal sound ?The sound in your head? is really important but at the same time accepting that there is always someone with a better use of EQ and Compression than oneself is also important. If someone loves what your doing OR hates what your doing I think there both good. If someone doesn?t feel anything then that maybe a problem!

Tim's being a tiny bit modest... he may not consider himself grown up, but he can definitely shred. ;)
