Mistheria: One day in heaven - tribute to Shawn Lane

Maestro Mistheria

That's one of my favorite as well, I've been honored to write and devote this song to one of the greatest guitarist and pianist I've been listening. I did a Piano version as well (published on my album Keys of Eternity) and a 4-hands arrangement still unreleased. When I play this song on concert always my thoughts fly to Shawn...

Maja Partsch: Yngwie Malmsteen - vengeance

Challenging song, but nice song :D Thought it'd be fun to make my own solo in stead of all that technical shred yngwie does - just to be a bit creative myself ;) Some mistakes here and there, but what the hell, I'm not yngwie or any other kind of god xp
And then I'll have to excuse myself for looking like a fish at some points, that's not a kind of face I often wear if you wonder..

Anyway if you want to know somthing about all the technical stuff: this is a warmoth guitar (put together different warmoth parts and painted it with a sponge)
It contains a bareknuckle pickup named "the mule" as brigdepickup which is the one I used in this vid.
Sound recorded on boss digital recorder micro BR, and then I've put some plugins in (solo-c vst and EZmix2 metaltone) And in the end an EZmix2 master. All that with some help from "reaper"..
Used audacity to tune the backingtrack up a half step, so I could play it in standart E-tuning. And used center-pan-remover in the solo to remove yngwies solo-playing and make some space for me :)

Hope you enjoy ;D
