Did you make this sound(Melodic arpeggios) from scratch or did you use a preset?(I'm assuming your using GR or Amplitube)

Sounds good man, I definitely enjoy it ;) You certainly have some amazing riffs up your sleeve.

Glad you like it case! I always customize the tones, I don't really like the preset distorted tones... Yea I used Guitar Rig's 3 and 4. For my heavier tones, I like the distortion from Guitar Rig 3 better and I usually base my sound off their "Lead 800" tone.

Rock on!

GS,
I like the sound of the guitar alot! Good driving baseline! Nice, but the song didn't get me interested until about the 2:30 mark. then it started getting interesting. So the first 2 1/2 minutes seemed more like a warm up then you took off and it was memorable. Very nice job man!

Haha, it's funny you should say that Phip; that second part wasn't even supposed to be in the song. I'm glad I added it though, because that is what everyone is saying! Truthfully, I was feeling kinda blah at the time and that is what inspired the first section of the song. I took a break and something happened to put me a good mood, and I was like, "what the hell!" and that's when I wrote the parts for the second half of the song.

Glad you like it!

Rock on!

It's was good, but not your best, Phip is right the first 2 1/2 minutes are a little dull, and I felt as though the solos weren't fitting right. But that riff that starts at 3:40 is AMAZING. I wish I had written it first.

@GS

So GR3 has a slightly better sound for heavier distortion than GR4? Interesting, but I will say that my favorite amps to use in GR4 are the Lead 800, Jump, and the Ultrasonic :P I can get pretty much anything that I want out of them :D

Hehe, yea I think it's pretty cool too.

I think so. Maybe I need to mess with GR4 a little more, but it seems like their heavier tones have too much noise.


Rock on!

Curious to know what my "best" is?



I just uploaded a new song, I know fast right? It's called "Skepsis". I finally wrote myself a title track!


Rock on!

DUDE! From the start to the very end I'm absolutely loving this track!! There were one or two notes which sounded a little weird at one point, but not really any need to change. Seriously though dude, this is a brilliant track and I can't tell you how much I am LOVING it.

What were you thinking about when you wrote this song?

Listening to Skepsis now... sweet melodies, great beat, brilliant bass lines resulting in a terrific track. So yeah, when you finish your album you better sign it and send it to me! :P

Well during the first two minutes or so of "Clarity in Which We See", I was in a pretty melancholy mood. I had planned on ending the song right there and scrapping it. But, I was just fiddling with the chords in the song, and I came up with the second half of it spontaneously.

I wrote "Skepsis" right after I finished running a charity marathon to help with the oil spill in Gulf. So I was kind of excited. At first, I had in mind to play some southern style chugging riff. But then, that first riff in the song just came to my head... and the rest of the song just followed.

Glad y'all like it!

Rock on!
