    Hey guys, everyone on this forum seems really cool and knowledgable as far as music goes (otherwise, you wouldn't really be listening to Symphony X), so I thought it'd be neat for us to share our talent with others. So, post a sample of your playing, I know there are a lot of great guitar players/keyboardists here that are probably way better than me, so let's see what you've got!

    Follow this link to go to my band's music page on Soundclick, and give a listen to Transcending The Walls Of Eternity. My solo starts just a little before the two minute mark. Hell, give the song a listen and tell me what you think of anything:

    Alright you bastard shredders, get posting!

    SpiritCrusherX, :headbang: :D

    SevenString, that second one reminds me of Ark, in terms of style... have you listened to them?

    good job... ;)


    Since the name of the topic is samples of "your playing", not "your songs", I have some stuff on this topic:

    I'm working on a new instrumental, it should be finished in about a month or so. A couple of the guest guitarists aren't finished recording some of their own stuff, if not I would've finished it earlier.

    I'll post it when it's finished.

    I'd also like to suggest another one...
    interconnected
    I'm not sure about the others, but this one allows deep linking, aka you can post a direct link on the forum, or your site, to the file you upload.
    In the free membership, you can upload up to 10 songs in 128 or 192 kbps bitrate (not larger than 100mb alltogether), and one free video, too.

    hey, soulshred

    thanks! i'm glad you dig my stuff... as for my tone, i used a Vetta (same as mike romeo, heh heh), and used a combination of the Mesa Triple Rectifier simulation and the Bogner Uberschall simulation, running simultaniously. I also recorded direct into the board from the amp's direct outputs. For the majority of the CD, I used a custom ibanez 7string saber with some custom-wound DiMarzio Blaze pickups. When ordering, i had the manufacturer wind for boosted mids: gets me a little bit richer sound, especially since modern high-gain amp tones tend to have scooped mids.

    Vlakey,

    Yeah, I really dig ARK... they're one of my favorites, so if "Sea of Stars" reminds you of ARK, that's very cool with me. :D

    try CDex
    http://cdexos.sourceforge.net/
    it's one of the best freeware programs of that kind that I found, you can use it for grabbing audio cds into wav or mp3, and you can also convert existing wav files to mp3 (and vice versa)

    ;)

    Hey Vlakey, you should post some of that other stuff you recorded. Rondo alla Turca or that jazzy/fusion you did. I'm telling you folks, this guy owns.:worship:

    Seven String: I listened to "Ancient Signs," and that's some pretty crazy shredding you've got goin on there, and the song is awesome too! Did you say you played all the instruments? That's goddamn impressive!

    Vlakey: I assume you like what you heard from me :). I heard your "Of Sins And Shadows" solo, and I was blown away man, keep it up.

    You assume well :headbang:
    thanks!
    Ok, here it goes... :)
    if you're interested, give some stuff a hear...
    just...
    I don't wanna leave the impression I'm bragging, or something like that, cause I'm always leaving some links to my playing...lol

    Jingle Spikes
    (a heavy version of the Jingle Bells theme)

    O Turci Ne Gaz'te Oranja
    (a double-kicked Rondo Alla Turca)

    Lying Jam
    (a track from a competition in J.Rudess forum, it's backing is a looped DT's "Lie" riff, and my soloing has several references to that song, including the LaBrie chorus imitation, and Petrucci's solo at the end...)

    and here are the links to those I already posted (to keep them all at the same place...)

    Of Sins And Solos

    Scarred

    And I don't consider myself being as good as you present me, Dado-X... :oops:
    but thanks... it keeps me going... :)

    I love the Alla Turca, and that's an excellent rendition of that. Totally awesome man.

    You should feel free to brag, your shit's outta control.

    There's all kinds of crap at the link in my sig. Most of it was recorded with a cheap computer mic and practice amp. The "It's Bad" EP has some more entertaining stuff on it, while "Electric Paella" is kinda just a bunch of ideas on guitar.

    Also, in the downloads is some stuff from the old days with my Death Metal band, Humanity Raped.

    I was testing my computer's line in with this, it's a bass version of the "Damnation Game" intro, a little bit wrong, because it was a little time ago... enjoy!
    ps.: rename the ".dkx" to ".mp3"... the server was blocking the mp3 file :tickled: :Smug:

    Death Knight, it was only at 0:30 when it started to sound like DG, but anyway you have some chops, but don't try to rush or it will sound messy :)
