i was bored and tired of jazz (mixing my album ... almost ready, 6 tracks out of 12), so i took my guitar and started practicing arpeggios and ... this came out
again a tune started from practicing arpeggios... basically i made this for play along some exercises and not to get bored from practicing with metronome
my girlfriend say that sounds like James Bond :-\
well, i say this sounds more like 80's metal

awesome :D

sounds rather like old dream theater to me :p the progression is very james bond but that was never anything but ace :D

sorohanro responds:

That was part of a contest I made here on NG ... now is all forgotten :(

Also great

You get an amazing distorted tone as well.

This is some great playing, again!

sorohanro responds:

but if you want really great playing, check the "Guitar Challenge" to hear Kor-Rune's, Metaljonus and BadManInc.'s versions on this


I think the "James Bond" sound comes from how the progression is laid out, how it ascends 3 times, then descends on the last chord.

Sweet freakin' work, again! The synth is a nice addition. The rhythm tone does sound muddy without any drums or other instruments to back it, but I love the midtones of the lead tone a bunch.

Keep it up dude!

sorohanro responds:

second "Guitar Challenge" is up, with backing track of this on my page ;)
also a slower version (with James Bond theme in background) in "classical" way
thanx for review


Love it, its Megadeth meets James Bond. You can hear some similar chord progressions like in Hangar 18 and then the main riff reminds me of Darkest Hour and James Bond. The beginning felt like a russian song, probably the arpeggios you used in this song.

Overall it sounded good, keep up the nice work.

sorohanro responds:

James Bond, aye ? i'll give you all James bond, i made a "classical" version of it and i included James bond theme ;)
thanx for review

Awesome job man

I really love your lead guitar tone. Did you use Guitar Rig ? If you did, can you send me the presets please : ) ?

Nice soloing there. Keep it up \m/
