Hey Dudes !!

Who fancies an audio collaboration ?? You all kicked so much ass on my High Risk collab that I'm inviting you back to kick my ass once again cool.gif

We're going to use the backing from my Marty Friedman lesson so it's one that you already know. (That explains the title!)

Attached File  Backing_Track_115bpm.mp3 ( 783.62K ) Number of downloads: 269


The parent key of the whole piece is Eminor.

The section from 0 to 0:18 uses the following chord progression:

A#5, A5, G5, E , A5, G#5, G5, E, E, F5, E5, F5, E5
A#5, A5, G5, E , A5, G#5, G5, E, E, B/G, C5.

For this section you could use the following scales: Eminor, Em Pentatonic, E Blues, E Dorian, E Phrygian Dominant, even try the A Minor scale, which would give you bit of a Marty Friedman sound. The chromatic nature of this riff gives us more options in using 'outside' notes.

0:19 to the end: E5, C5, A5, C5 and repeat.

The following scales will be useful - Eminor, Em Pentatonic. I would stick mainly to these because this riff section has a more definite chord harmony.

Standard tuning and 115bpm.

See what ideas you come up with ! No need to worry about video as it's an audio only collab.

If you want to post some takes in this thread then go for it.. try to use mp3 if you can because they take up less space than wav. smile.gif

Deadline is 30th September - let's ROCK ! \m/ \m/

Yes, the German guy opens proceedings !! biggrin.gif

This is pretty good, Christian.. I suggest that you take this and hone it until you're happy with it (in other words, you won't need to say that there are some wrong notes or anything).

Towards the end it sounded a bit 'meandering' like it was wandering between loads of notes but not commiting to any of them. So perhaps identify the stronger notes and try and relate it to the chord.

I love the pick tapping - keep that or I'll be unhappy ! cool.gif
