Hi

Last month we did really good with some neoclassical backing and you learned some new scales. In this one I hope you won't find anything unfamiliar. This is about pentatonics and a couple of different common modes. Actually, Monte asked for Satriani type of backing and I promissed I would do it.

The chord progression is very simple:

A5 - A pentatonic of your choice
E5 - E minor pentatonic

these 2 chords are repeated 4 times (16 bars)

then you have
C5 (2 bars) - Lydian
D5 (2 bars) - Mixolydian

And again:
A5 - A pentatonic of your choice
E5 - E minor pentatonic

these 2 chords are repeated 2 times (8 bars)

Tempo is 180.

Your tonal key center is E (minor) and this E5 chord is your resolution in the melody. You can think of it as G major as that's the paralel scale/chord to the E minor. Therefore your C chord will be Lydian and D will be Mixolydian. Please use these 2 chords for these modes, do not stay in pentatonic here. I said that A can be pentatonic of your choice. If you start with A minor pentatonic then go on with that choice on every A5 chord. You can chose to do A dominant pentatonic (1, 2, 3, 5, b7) - something like mixolydian. If you go for this option then please keep it until the end whenever you have that A5. In this case your A5 will sound more (major). You can also use some blues b5 passing notes if you find it interesting. Notice that I resolve on E major riff when I land on the E5 but you can still play E minor pentatonic and it will work. That way you'll sound more in Satriani style smile.gif

I called this collaboration "Satriani style" because the backing reminds of his old known fast grooves like Surfing With The Alien or Crushing Day. But you don't need to play in Satriani style. Play whatever you want just make some nice melody and involve some cool rock licks. There is plenty of space for playing pretty much anything from tapping, picking... you can even play with your boots like Ritchie Blackmore hahaha, but please keep some logical structure so your solo has some compositional quality.

The deadline is April 26th (Sunday) - 2 weeks and 2 days.

I will be away from 12th until 26th so I won't be able to reply everyday. You can still ask anything you want and I'll do my best to find internet at least every 3rd day.

I hope I'll receive some great takes this month smile.gif

See you.
