    After a long hiatus, and given the fact I'm currently listening some Testament again, I wanted to share my rendition of their song Electric Crown's solo section, full mix.

    I recorded all the rhythm and lead guitars with this classy (borrowed) 1979 Gibson Les Paul and the Axe Fx II (v14.02); the bass, drums and vocals come from the original track.

    Hope you guys like it!

    NOTE: I never meant to emulate neither the original nor any particular Testament guitar tone.

    One of my favourite solos of all times, both to listen and play.
    It's an awesome rendition.
    I would have kept the pull-offs and hammer-ons in the last section, but it sounds cool anyway :)
    Great job!

    Thanks bro and nice observation, I simply don't like legato "too much" legato in my solos and decided to modify it a bit right there :p
