HappyHomicide put up a backing track for a "solo" challenge.
Check it here:

I attempted to put leads on it. Enjoy


Great melodies

Wow, this was epic. Especially the first melody from the begining to 0:05, I instantly loved this song O.o. Nice tapping bro, you are constantly improving your soloing, it's nice. Then about the backing track, HappyHommicide is the shit, I enjoyed his tone and also his way to use EZDrummer.

Just one thing about your lead tone, try to increase the middle frequences a bit to make your lead sound stronger and also a bit more "musical". Apart from this, that was a perfect try for this challenge. I should give a try to this one, but I have to many other challenges to give a try, MJ, Sorohanro and yours ...

Anyway, you know the score. Keep doing the great job, Shawn <3.

Bad-Man-Incorporated responds:

Haha, thanks man. I had a hard time mixing in a solo, because happy homicide's track is so full of frequencies. He kicks a lot of ass!
I tried a lot of tones, and some really faded in the mix, and others were just way too harsh. So I tried to find a bit of a middle ground.

I probably could have looked harder, but...I just wanted to play my guitar. I hate all the pissy stuff about recording. I just wish I could push the red record button, and everything else does what its supposed to, on its own. haha. I disliked having to learn shit about frequencies, tones, mixing, eqing, drum making...etc...when I just want to play guitar. haha.

Anyways, sorry for the ranty response. Basically, thanks for the review! And get your ass on those other challenges too!


Incredible stuff! This song totally kicked ass. It should be more longer though. Awesome use of the guitar and the drums rocked! Great work, Bad-Man! 10/10 5/5

Bad-Man-Incorporated responds:

Thanks man, glad you dig. Thanks for the review, and vote!\m/

Great job.

Good job on adding the solo to this backing track. Like always I loved the guitar and everything. It's kind of a short backing track to work with, but I think that you did it justice with the short amount of room that you had here. I enjoyed the parts near the end of this piece a little bit more as that's where the pace picked up a little bit and I loved the way the ending sounded.

Bad-Man-Incorporated responds:

Thanks very much, my friend. That was my favorite part too. :D haha

Short, but creative!

Awesome guitar, wish it could've been longer though.

keep it up!!!

Bad-Man-Incorporated responds:

Thank you, I will.\m/

THis be Awesome

THis is a really great piece, i love the tapping, you have got to tell me what program you used to make this!

Bad-Man-Incorporated responds:

Thanks for the review!
I used my guitar, a pod X3 and cool edit pro. I'm pretty sure happyhomicide used his guitar, EZDrummer and some other recording program. But yeah, good old fashioned guitar.

Thanks again, glad you liked it!\m/
