Massive distortion and compression with lots of reverb and echo.  I don't particularly like this guitar sound.  Its too washy with the extreme effects, and hard to identify the note being played.  But, that's just my opinion.  My opinion has little value except that its mine.  Also, I'm a bit of an Old Fart.  I just celebrated the 40th anniversary of my 21st birthday.

Hi  IZ, don't get put off by our favorite self confessed 'old fart' [Hi Keith :D] - I quite like the song, but as Rockerbob says, that's just my opinion.  The main thing is to play guitar in whatever way pleases you, and to have fun while doing it.  Good luck.

The technique he is using is sometimes called 'violining'. The guitarist is swelling into the note with the volume knob rolled off at first. There is a few bit of delay and reverb on the guitar to help add depth and sustain to the note.

      I have 350€ and i want to buy an amp for home practising. I've done a little research and I've found some amps: Blackstar id 30tvp, marshall mg30cf, vox vt 20x, fender mustang 2 and peavy vypyr 2. I want my amp to have good distortion and a good clean channel. Which one should i buy? Can you propose me a better amp for the money?

      Hello guys,
      I want to ask one (maybe stupid) question. I'm playing a lot of heavy metal and genres like this but lately I have been improvising some jazz over backing tracks. I'm wondering what scale should I play over some chords. For example one backing track was in E. The rhythm played E7 chord I played E pentatonic scale (don't know if it fits the chord) and then the rhythm changed to A7 and I was still playing E pentatonic major but it sounded out of key and I than started to play E major scale. Should I change to A major scale or I will go out of key? So what scale to choose over what chords - for example the progression is C7 - Dm7. Should I play only C major over both of the chords or should I change the scale ?? :/ 
      Thanks in advance!

      We are still tweaking the masters, but here's a tune from the soon to be Lewis & Walker 11.  Working title for the project is "Shut Up And Sing!"  Its all instrumentals.  All the red tracks are drums.  The green track is guitar and the blue track is bass.  The 2 far right channels are a reverb on a buss and a master track.  Minimal arrangement.  I used a pedal board to change tones on the fly, something I don't have to do in the studio.
      We jam to the basic structure a couple time, then start recording. For this project, the structure is based on either a guitar lick or a bass lick.  We record several takes and pick the one we like best.  I guess it is a loosely, quickly "arranged by jamming" and hoping we get a take we like.  Its fun playing together.  So much of studio work can be done in remote locations, jamming with a live person has decreased.  Its loss I'm glad we tried to avoid in these recent recordings.
      I like this recording because I like the movement of it.  The bass plays more notes than I do on guitar.  :-)
      I hope its worth your 2 and a half minutes.
