Hi all!

In this new collab we have a nice soft piano chord progression using the following chords:

Eb – Abmaj7 – Bb – Gm – Cm – Cm/Bb – Cm/A – Ab6

Eb – Bb – G7 – Cm – Eb – Fm7 – Ab – Bb – Bbsus4 – Bb - Eb

As you can see it's in the key of Eb major.

Suggested scales for you to use are: Eb major, C minor, C minor pentatonic (blue note adds a nice color to it). But feel free to use any mode as well, for instance Bb mixolydian seems to work really well here.

Deadline is the middle of April (12th)

I will open the uploads thread right away!

Daniel

Thanks zen. I think I need to change the last bar (to go with the backing) and fix that timing. Will upload another take soon. smile.gif

Cheers!

Hi Kaz,

I actually really liked this take, but feel free to make another if you want,

The tone fits pretty well with the backing (Little gain, lots of definition). The octaves are a great detailed that I wouldn't have thought of. I'll probably use that for my take tongue.gif I'm kidding

Nice melodic part you created here. Well defined phrases, I like the pauses and sort of breathing you give to your phrases. Very pleasing to listen to. Your bendings are accurate and very expressive! Rhythmically spot on and I also liked the fact that you took some risk at the end by doing the faster scale and rocking bendings (reminded me of Slash!) and actually pulled it off.

I would only say that the very last note feels rushed. And also make sure you edit the last hit on the guitar tongue.gif

Very nice video take!

I will post detailed comments on the final mix if you are thinking on posting a new take. If not I'll have comments on this take. (I really liked the arpeggios at 0:20)

Thanks much Daniel. I will do another take. I have changed the last bar to little slow so it goes well along the backing.

Very nice sense of melody! Yeah, I noticed the Bohemian rhapsody bit, it fits nicely,

I like the way you used the pentatonic scale over the backing. Gives it a nice expressive rocking sound to it. I like the use of blues licks, they make sense and also the ending really feels like you had a direction to reach those higher notes.

The phaser is a little too much, probably you could turn down the "mix" parameter in the effect to get a more dryer sound.

I think the connecting space between phrases feels a little disjointed, by this I mean you start every phrase nicely and on tempo but then you kind of worry about the next phrase and kind of stop suddenly before starting the next. I believe this is due to the fact that you expect to start the next phrase on time and perfectly, or maybe you have the solo divided in short bits and pieces, you could make them longer. You can make this spaces a little deorganized and not strict in timing (for instance changing suddenly of rhythm figures, from 8th notes to triplets, from quarter notes to 16th notes, etc), that would help a lot on the overall direction of it.
