Hey guys! I am excited to start a new collab!!!
It's a funk blues and it has some very cool changes!
A7-D7-C#mi7-F#7-G#mi7-B7-E7
A7-D7-C#mi7-F#7-B7-E7-E7
TEMPO IS 94BPM
You can play:
A major pentatonic


E major pentatonic


D major pentatonic


It would be really cool if you can play chord tones included in your solo!
Here is an example:

A7 chord structure:
A-C#-E-G

Find a structure for other chords and try focusing on chord tones if you want to make all the changes!

You can play any of those chord tones but the most important are 3 (C#) and 7 (G)

You have got two weeks to send your takes!
I am looking forward to hear you play!!!
Please send me PM if you have any questions!

Nice backing! Really changes around so this should make for some interesting ideas. I've never consciously worked out chord tones so I look forward to trying that out!

Yeah man! It's a fun backing track! You don't have to do all the chord tones you can switch it around and have a lot of fun using pentatonic as well!

This is pretty tricky to play over.

You pretty much have to change on every chord to a new box/scale

Any tips Alex? I'm struggling to keep up. And can't get my teeth into it.

Good challenge thou!

This wasn't something I was able to jump right into either. After letting the progression sink in for a while I started playing simple single notes that fit over the changes. It seemed to help me get my ears trained for the changes after some time. Its not predictable at all which makes it challenging!

Alex, Would it be possible get a count in to the start of track?

It was quite hard to get the right feel just from the metronome, and it sounds a bit dull without the track... anyway if you need me to redo the take or want me to shorten it ( the return of the theme for instance) just let me know laugh.gif

Ok, here is my take! I had to take a different approach than usual to work this solo out. It was some good experience!

With backing

Without backing

Hey alex,
not sure when the actual deadline is, but here's my stuff. If we have a couple more days I'd work on it a bit more. I'm still figuring out the recording part of it.

Cheers!

Hey alex!
I'm finally done!!! biggrin.gif
I had to readjust the tracks, for some reason the guitar recording would be out of synch with the back track by 1/2th of a second, took me a while to figure it out, I thought I was playing it wrong or something tongue.gif

Cheers!
