Comedy (Guitar Version)

An instrumental version of my song Comedy Of Errors with some editing done on the ending guitar solo. I played it backwards and changed the speed to give it that cool 60s vibe (I'm Only Sleeping), and I used a slightly different mix on the instruments.

You've got some skills, the only thing id recommend (which is a problem I contend with as well) If you can throw a slight gate on the guitar, just a slight bit. . there is a tad bit of that dam buzz we as guitarists tend to just tune out because its so often ever present. But its a nice soothing jam all the same.

Letting the notes hang around 3:40 give your phrasing a nice David Gilmor- esque feel which is a great approach.

Thanks for your review. I think that a problem for me personally when it comes to phrasing when I solo is that when I have a guitar in my hand I always feel the need to keep playing, rather than let notes hang around for a while. I think in the mid-section is kind of a good example, where I do let some notes hang around for a while but I keep on bending the string rather than let it hang. The main solo section is probably my worst offender in this category because it's so busy, and I think my favourite section is the ending where I play some busy solos, then end on a string bend and let the note hang for a bar before resuming.

As for the gate, I might actually fix that. To be honest, I think I'm so used to the buzz that my guitar sounds weird to me when there's no buzz, which is why I tend to leave it in during these little jam songs I like to do, although I think I tried to filter it out a bit during the other version of the song with vocals. I think that perhaps the next time I do a little jam like this I might record the guitar solo with a gate placed on it during the recording so that when I mix it doesn't sound as weird.

Anyways, thanks for the review, it means a lot to me to hear feedback on my stuff.

why am i awake listening to this? Whatever, it's good anyways

ti-on-suxandrox responds:

Why am I awake posting this? Well, the answer to that question is that it was my day off and I drank too much soda and decided to go for a long walk before bed, which just made me feel less tired for some reason. I don't know what your reason is.

Regardless, I'm glad you enjoyed this song. It's always nice to read a positive comment on one of my songs.
