    just me and a backing track.

    something i hadn’t done in a while.

    rock and roll ain't pretty; that's why they picked us to play it.

    I dig this one. Especially the more aggressive part at around 2:30 and 6:00. The earlier part is a great build up. Really melodic. Memorable and hummable. Also I like the guitar tone in this one. The guitar tone in your latest one (“Gary Moore style”) sounds a bit too quacky to me but maybe thats just an artifact of the recording, or tone knobs on the amp, not sure.

    I still have on my todo list, to post an improv from the backing chord video you put up before. I havent been working on my soloing stuff this past couple months tho, focusing on learning new songs at present. Maybe a “solo duel” could be a good idea for January 😀

    I'm an intermediate student of Metal Method. I play seitannic heavy metal. All Kale Seitan! The glutens will be eaten with relish!
    And on the Seventh Day, Mustaine said: ∇ ⨯ E = - ∂B / ∂t ; and there was Thrash; and it had a ♭3; and it was good.

    on this one i used the bridge pick up – an iron gear rolling mill humbucker. the amp sound is exmix2 flange drive from the amps pack.

    the gary moore style backing track i used the neck pick up – an iron gear alchemist 90 (a p90 style single coil). the amp sound is exmix2 british lead combo also from the amps pack.

    Sounds awesome rotm! Generally nowadays I am migrating more to the melodic influences (Gilmour, Clapton, Moore) than the speed freaks. Even in the early days I would  generally end up with a more satisfying practice session if I started jamming on some Alan Parson’s Project, etc.. than just ripping into some Vinnie Moore speed progressions. You know guitarists who do so much with so little. I like working out an obscure scale and then just trying to make it fit into a basic chord progression. I’m gonna try the Iron Gear pickups on an up and coming project this next year. Lately I’ve been leaving the pickups stock and on guitars like Teiscos that’s generally the best way to go seeing how they sound awesome anyways.

    Cheap Guitars (with some exceptions) play just about as good as expensive ones. It's your ability combined with an awesome amp that makes the difference.
