Hello Everyone!
How are you doing?
I did my best on trying to cover Syn’s Paradise with my own equipment at my place.
I really like the textures and feeling of this song.
Bear in mind that I have very little knowledge about recording, so it is not thaaat great. But I think you can recognize the song at least haha.
I have been listening to this song for 2 weeks in order to try to replicate the drums and bass patterns on my midi keyboard.
So everything on this track it is made by me.
The thing that i had the most difficulty was the fuzzy sound. I do not know if Syn uses fractal to record his own songs, or used pedals.
I once read an article saying that he had a Big muff pi on his pedalboard, but i do not know if this is accurate.
I used:
– Synyster custom (2010 model)
– Fender Telecaster Standard 2013 american
– EHX Big Muff Pi, MXR Carbon Copy, Maxon OD808, MXR Phase 90.
– Scarlett Focusrite
– Logic Pro
I hope you guys Liked it! It is not a proffessional recording, but it is the best that I can do at my house. Not much time to learn new skills.
Oh! And by the way, I confess that I did try to sing it ( with and without Autotune) but I failed miserably hahahhaa.

Syn, congrats again for this tune, it is amazing. And I am sure a lot of people felt inspired as I did.

Take care guys!!

This was excellent Gabriel! I was singing along to it and everything! I think it’s so cool that you figured this out 🙂 it’s definitely different seeing you do something like this because usually when I see you post videos at something a lot softer and cleaner. Great job! I think it would be best for you to keep working on improvisation on the ending chords. You are really strong and some spots but in other spots you seemed a little unsure. but that’s my only critique! Loved it! Great tone, too!

Thank you very much Jak! I really appreciate it !
Yeah, I really need to get out of my comfort zone and do these kinds of stuff.
And yes, I agree with everything that you said there, Jak. I will try to improve that in the next months for sure.
I am very excited to get better on guitar. More than ever to be honest.
I hope to get some time to just study in my summer break (December – February).
I am really digging blues, I want to get better at it.
Thanks for the feedback Jak !!

Nice job figuring that out! You got down some things that I didn’t (like the little intro and repetitive lick much further down on the fretboard and the one chord that starts on the fifth string instead of going down i think it was to the 8th fret). I’ve got the full song down so I was thinking of doing the livestream and I know you’re the most interested student in this song so what time wirks for you?
