Video playthrough of a song on the album I'm working on (Charvel/Recto content)

While jamming along with the backing for a song on the album I'm working on to work out some lead ideas, I figured I'd record a quick video. This is pretty rough, and was a one-take improv when I wasn't fully warmed up (oops!), but the improv wasn't too bad and the basic structure is loosely along the lines of the final solo I ended up recording, so whatever. Feedback (even "you suck!!!" very much appreciated!

The signal path was my Charvel San Dimas (I think - that or a So Cal, whichever one doesn't have a pickguard), bridge JB, into a Chaos mod TS9 set for a light boost and then my Roadster's Channel 3 Vintage, tube rectified, 100 watts, gain somewhere around 1 o'clock, I think.

Sounds good bro. Chords sound similar to Foofighter's song Everlong. Also hear some Satch influence in your lead parts.

Good job!

Ugh. I just 5-starred the thread - it got 1-starred by a troll.

Re: Video playthrough of a song on the album I'm working on (Charvel/Recto content)

Thanks guys! Yeah, it's got a similar feel to Everlong - i was kind of after that vibe - but while I've actually never sat down and learned it, the verse and chorus (more on that later) are a Bmadd9 to Dadd4, which I suspect is a heck of a lot more extensions than Grohl was using.

This one came about when I started going back and forth between those two chords, and thought it might be kind of cool to write a song using the same chord changes for the verse and the chorus, but changing up the melody line and drum/bass parts enough to make it feel like two completely different sections. They needed to be, um, "geographically" separate too, somehow, though, so enter the heavier choromatic riff implying an F# changeup in the key of Bm.

Dude disliked it on YouTube too, it would seem. Whatever - I 5-starred it myself to help you offset, but I'm also not going to lose any sleep over it either.

What a jerk. That could mean 2 things:
  1. MG.org is down
  2. He thinks you are the "other" Drew P.
I really doubt either, and conclude he be trollin'.

Either way, great song!!

Yeah, good overall sound to it. Nice legato work, similar to Satch as someone else said.

Thanks dude! This is definitely on the more Satch-y side of what I'm working on; on either side, some of the material gets a lot bluesier and a bit heavier, so hopefully when all's said and done it'll be a good mix.
