just recorded this cover of Year Zero, which is such a fun song to play. Had a bit of trouble getting those 16th notes up and running, but now I finally got to the point where I am confident enough to recoard and post it. Any feedback is much appreciated. Cheers!
Didn’t know this song before hearing you play it. You have a sort of controlled energy giving the performance real momentum. Your playing throughout was both precise and driven; it kept me listenong and watching; the guitar could perhaps be a little louder in the rhythm sections : the lead sections were excellent.
Sounded good in my ears and I agree that your guitar is maybe a bit too silent.
Otherwise I’m unfortunately lacking the knowledge to give you feedback on what you could do better. I do know however that there is a great guitar player in the community, who is also a fan of Ghost… Let’s see if I can tagg him here… @metramaks
Sounds good, Nick, solid rhythm, great metal tone, fluid up and down the fretboard, and cool solo.
Great cover, Nick! Very solid rhythm playing, good work on that 16th note chugging. That’s something I have to work on. So keep it!
The only thing I can point out is your lead part. Take some time to practice bending to hit the right pitches. Other than that it’s really good.
I’m flattered, Nicole.
And thanks for tagging me, I haven’t listened to Ghost in a while and now I have to.
Yeah, I was wondering if it was too low in the mix, now I have confirmation
Thanks for the feedback!
I will definitely work on that solo a bit more, I tend to neglect that
Good 16th playing there.
Would just agree with various others that you could do with having the guitar higher in the mix.
That’s ok at the beginning, rhythm is far more important and you did a great job on it.
That’s a great job Nick! I’m not that familiar with the metal genre(s) but the more I hear it on here through videos like yours, the more I want to explore it.
