    Comment by 'SimonEichinger' in media 'Afterlife solo cover'

    Haha! :D 1. Hard to answer, I've been working on sweep picking technique for years. The shapes used in this solo are pretty "normal" ones, so I didn't have to specifically work on this solo to improve my sweep picking, if that makes sense. 2. It's tough. Getting everything to sound smooth and...

    Sing everything.

    This! Amazing for improv. Especially when playing over changes, as you said.

    Pinch harmonics

    Have your thumb touch the string right after you picked it! Needs to be in a natural harmonic spot to work.

    Afterlife solo cover

    Did my best to get it to sound as close to the studio recording as possible. As this solo still seems to be somewhat of an unsolved myth - ask me everything you want to know about it and I'll try my best to help you!

    How to exercise after accident(s)

    PLEASE go slow. Listen to your body, don't rush - it's not gonna do anything good. I wish you a quick recovery! :)

    Dream Theater - As I Am solo

    Sooo, I just bought a used Axe FX II and I'm really liking it so far. I tried my best to replicate Petruccinator's 2003-ish tone! Axe FX users, feel free to give me some tips... :D And that's definitely the most ridiculous solo I know, if you really wanna put your alternate picking speed and...

    M.I.A. solo

    Tried my best to get it 99% accurate... :) If you wanna improve as an overall musician, ditch tabs and try learning solos by ear. The best way to do this (imo) is to slow down the song on YouTube to 0.5 or even 0.25 speed! If you're lucky, you might also find an isolated guitar track! ;)

    Difference Syn custom and Syn standard?

    If you're gonna buy one, definitely go for the Custom. Way better in every aspect! The Floyd Rose Special is the cheapest Floyd and... well, not that great. You'd be pretty disappointed.

    What Ed did

    Oh my god - I agree with everything on your list. 😂 Alter Bridge is horribly underrated... so is Lady Gaga!
