Duuuuuuuuuudes ! cool.gif

It's time for another simple, straight down the middle, hard rock collab. You'll recognise the backing from one of my lessons, 'Running Around'. There's only 2 chords - G5 and D#5.

They are both power chords (root+5th) but the 5th and minor 6th progression of the first chord suggests an overall tonality of G minor.

So, the G Minor scale is your friend for this one !

Attached File  Running_Around_Collab.mp3 ( 1.33MB ) Number of downloads: 376


Tempo is 100bpm - Enjoy !

This is an audio only collab so please send me audio files in either mp3 or wav format smile.gif

Oops, I forgot... Deadline is Wednesday 28th March !

I'm back, Ben!! smile.gif smile.gif Been a while since I joined a collab. As soon as I saw this, I started singing (yes, with my voice happy.gif ) to the track and so evolved the final piece here.

I followed my heart and this is what I bring you. (on my brand new Ernie Ball Cobalt Strings) smile.gif
I composed my take to fit somewhere in the middle. wink.gif I seem to write better choruses than verses.

P.S. I tried to think of what my take reminded me of, and then I remembered "Africa" by Toto. biggrin.gif It's been a long time since I have been this satisfied with a guitar solo I wrote. I hope you all like it too. \m/ I posted a video version on my YouTube for those interested in watching me play this exact take recorded live.

I was trying to learn that lesson when I first joined GMC. biggrin.gif I put it on the back burner as I needed to improve some areas of my playing first. I hope you don't mind if I try some of licks from the lesson or something similar patterns in the collab?

Thanks, Mr....W.P.?? biggrin.gif (I don't know exactly why, but I seem to almost always read your name as "PeeWee" hahaha laugh.gif
The melody hit me instantly when I heard this track, and I just HAD to record it. biggrin.gif However, I did practice it for about a half hour before recording the take you hear.

Ok, I obviously work too much. Didn't pay enough attention to GMC this week. Faster than I can say "beer bottle", you guys have already posted your awesome takes. I'll start working on this one, this very minute. Count me in, Big Ben!

Here is my take Ben. Worked this out over the last couple days, tried to experiment a little in terms of scales used, so there may be a few wrong notes! tongue.gif Timing is a little off in places as well, but I got a busy week coming up and wanted to get it done and submitted while I stiil had time to do it. Really enjoyed playing with this track, really enjoyed listening to the takes others have already submitted, and am looking forward to the final mix!

P.S. I tried to leave a little room on each end so you can work it into the mix easier.

Man that is really tasty ! Great tone as well wink.gif

I love it that everybody's submitted strong, melodic material and not just noodled all over it... great work ! cool.gif

Taking a break from Dojo duty ( my turn to clean the privy's dry.gif ) to contribute a little lick.

Hope it pleases.
