Ok, I promised Metal Madness this month... Off to hunt down a track. More to Follow

https://soundcloud.com/jay-ellisor%2Fmetal-track-jam

Here is the BTOM mantra:

If this is your first time, here are the guidelines.

What is it?
Every month I'll post a new backing track. It can be from any genre.
Download the track and record a solo over it.
Post your solo here along with what gear you used, recording equipment, and effects added. The more description you give the better.
I'm going to try and keep the backing tracks to under 2 minutes. Anything more is too daunting. Feel free to shorten it even more.
Try to get your recording in by the 3rd week of the month. We'll start over each month.
I'll take ideas on backing tracks so if you have a request, let me know.

Why do this?
Because it'll be fun!
I think this will be a great way to share ideas and see how each other interpret a piece differently. It will also be a good way to share recording techniques and receive overall feedback on our playing if we desire it.
This is NOT a competition!!!
Majority of people on here post great feedback in a helpful constructive way.

"But Bluto I'm scared!!!"
Look, I get it. Many of us are insecure about posting any of our own playing online. This is a safe place. I'm no guitar god. Keep it fun and I bet you'll learn a thing or two. If you're still unsure, read this: The Man In The Arena. Don't be that cold timid soul.


-peace

Thanks

Any pointer on key and scales to use?

If my ear were just a little better, it'd be tin. :(

Paradice - Classy and note perfect as usual but always looking so chilled..... great effort as always...
Vortex - Great tone, like the Shadows on heat, loving that hook, really nice.....

Thanks so much Gadafi. The whammy stuff was Satch inspired, although I still think there
is too much of the second track in the mix. I used the whammy dt for not only the dropped
tuning, but also for the 1 octave whammy jump. I use the whammy a lot for dropping the pitch.

My seven string rarely gets out of the case because of
the drop tuning. I can make my 6 strings sound like a 7 with the whammy.
If it ever broke I would definitely get another. The Whammy DT is the most used pedal on my
board, especially for the drop tuning.
