This is my first full speed run of this song, recorded on my phone, too lazy to use my interface. I'm hoping to have the full cover done by the end of the month time permitting. Lmk your thoughts in the meantime! (HEADPHONE WARNING) Loud mix incoming
I decided I wanted to work on my Rhythm playing... What a mistake that was. This is the intro of "Teras" by Sylosis at 90% speed. Gotta work on me picking tension when going this fast playing rhythm but all in all I think i'm doing ok. EDIT: Also... my rhythm stamina sucks.
Here is the final iteration of my solo, the only change is I held my final note as long as I possibly could so that it can be cut wherever it needs to be. WIll be sending isolated guitar as well as video to Aileé here in a bit. I'm glad this is finally over, but extremely excited to see the final result of everyone's hard work!
I took some advice from Ailee, Filip, and Ids to create the third iteration of my solo. After the pinch harmonic in the first section I decided to change from a whole step of the first note to a half step in my pentatonic ascent up the fretboard so that the notes would feel a little more cohesive while retaining that "creepy" kind of vibe to the lick. My second change was adding a little palm muted triplet at :07 to fill it out a bit. Next I decided to change to legato for the first part of the fast section at :20 for 2 reasons. The first is that I felt the solo had a little too much pick attack to it, so this was a good way to even it out. The second is that my timing was off from the track in my last take, and moving to legato allowed me to better time the section as well as prepare for the taps. Finally, I cut off the excess at the end of my last clip (so that I was playing the right chorus) :I. Comments and critiques are extremely appreciated! Thanks again to Ailee and Filip!

Revision of my initial solo for the Syn Gates student collab. Just made a move across my state and between that and the job I haven't really been able to do anything I enjoy, so BIG thanks to Filip for the deadline extension! As always let me know what you think! Ps: (IK I muted my first tap in the beginning of the section, will have that cleaned up for the final recording).
1st draft of my potential solo for the Syn Gates student shred collaboration. Tell me what you think. Also, sorry about the quality, I'm ordering an interface asap (Amazon is just out of most of the cheap ones).
