    Strictly Neoclassic

    Alright,

    here is my contribution to the "most awesomish" strickly series!!

    It is kind of 80's/90's neoclassical metal in the style of Malmsteen or MacAlpine.

    The chords are:

    Am | F/A | Dm | Esus4 E

    So pull out those Arpeggios, those runs of doom and those sweeps from hell.

    the tempo is 132 bpm and it's time to shred .

    most important:
    have fun

    EDIT: THE BACKING TRACK (and some tab) IS ON THE SECOND PAGE OF THIS THREAD!

    Really good job Sven. I thought the arpeggio section from the 45 second point until just before the end was beautiful. Also very clean playing all around and you certainly show a nice finger vibrato. Can I ask what guitar/amp setup you used? Have you ever thought of making a demo neo-classical CD?

    wow! your a great guitarist, im very impressed. Judging by the hat i thought you were country music, boy was i wrong. lol.

    would you mind explaining what the hell your doing. Are you sticking on the A minor/harmonic minor scale the whole time? i love that sweep part. im guessing that part around 0:26 is sweeping the A minor in all modes across the neck. if you could make a quick tab on a few licks id appreciate that alot. Nice drum machine 2 lol. when you upload the backing ill give it a go!

    Sven, that kicks some serious butt! Awesome vibrato and muted picking!

    That drum line is 100% Yngwie

    Satch, you should try transcribing the licks you like the most and see if Sven can verify them for you.

    my take

    my take

    Mistakes everywhere but hey, i'm only 14 (i use that excuse far too much)

    Mainly harmonic minor with some natural minor over the c to avoid clashes. Some arps, poorly executed near the end trying to create a "climax". not sure how well it worked.

    Be as critical as you think is nessecary.

    Hey mark.

    Thought your take was great-brimming with idea's and melody. The bit at 0/33 reminds me of abba for sum reason ! (i dont listen to abba, i promise!)

    Could do with smoothing out, but you have ages to practise.

    Thumps up,

    Ben

    I haven't dropped by here for a long time... I stopped in to check and see what's been going on in my absence, and I rediscovered my old take on the neoclassical thing and I decided to fire off a new one to see if I've improved at all. I did a couple takes improv and picked the better one, and then I added a harmony at one little part but I didn't really try to harmonize anything else. I left all the mistakes in because I'm lazy.

    Notice I just had too much shred in me for the backing track, so I ended a bit late.

    Anyway, I'll let you compare it to my old one and you can be the judge. The old one was only half improv but I haven't listened to it again so forgive me if I accidentally cop a lick or two from the old one without noticeing.

    Thorsten, I'd like to know what you think as well if you don't mind.

    Enough jibba-jabba:

    Phantom, that was great, especially the last third. You say it's at 132bpm, so are what speed are the fastest parts you play? Sixteenths at 132, or something else? I'm guessing the last third is straight sixteenths, but before that there may be some "wild" improvising that doesn't strictly follow the beat tempo?

    Anyway, really great playing.
