Hey Sinisa, I been messing with this track for the last couple days, and I got a fairly good take, So DeGroot won't be all alone on this one smile.gif His take was awesome and inspired me to submit one for this collab as well. Don't worry, I promise to make the deadline biggrin.gif

Sinisa
I won't be able to to split the guitar sound from the backing track. Is it really necessary? Once I solve this technical problem I will see if I can play something tongue.gif

Regards,
Carmine

Hey there friend, here's my take. smile.gif
I had very little time to record it so that's why it's mostly improvised! mellow.gif

Well, here is my take. Admittedly, I used some "Berry" well known licks, but I had fun doing it! biggrin.gif


Attached File  _Rock_N_Roll_No_Backing.mp3 ( 1.72MB ) Number of downloads: 30

Looking forward to the final mix and comments!

Final mix is here smile.gif

Attached File  Final_Mix.mp3 ( 3.88MB ) Number of downloads: 52


Participants were:

DeGroot 00:06 - 00:43
Dinaga 00:45 - 01:25
CasinoStrat01:26- 02:06

DeGroot

Very good! This style suits you. Phrasing is excellent, a real rock and roll solo! The only thing I might advise is that you try to put a major pentatonic phrase in some spots, and it would be a real refreshment. Of course, this backing track is too short for all scales that could enter into consideration,but anyway.. just my thinking. Superb, just continue like this!

Dinaga

Another good shot. First I had a good laugh - the first bends reminded me irresistible on Z.Joksimovic/ Drska zeno plava biggrin.gif !Anyway, very good mix of hard rock and classic rockabilly licks - a sign that you're trying to unite several styles into one natural whole, which is extraordinary and can never be bored. Keep rocking !!

CasinoStrat

Great ! Classic minor pentatonic phrases are nicely sorted and played even better, but I notice a little rhythmic imbalance in the resolving E chord, as if you right there running out of ideas and these phrases are noticeably below the level than others - from the beginning.
In this I/ IV/ V/progression, V is very important if not crucial, and has a dual function - as the cherry on the cake, the completion of a cycle - and also as an announcement of a new, perhaps even more interesting circle! Good job !

................................................................................
...................................................


Really guys, I am pleased to have such a players! What is common to all of you is - sense for improvisation, it can be seen after two bars, and it was a pleasure to listen to your shots!

And finally, I will reveal something, and advice at the same time - listen carefully any backing track wink.gif !
In this BT was, it seems, an camouflaged instrument - piano ! Which is constantly played the dominant chords A7/D7/E7 !
You were too occupied with listening to classic guitar riffing in the foreground,and the pentatonic minor key was a logical sequence,fine !
But If you have some free time try major pentatonic, also the dominant scale and you'll see how it will bring freshness to every improvisation.

Thanks again, it was a pleasure!

Sinisa

Awesome! I like this mix so much! smile.gif The backing track is awesome and it was lots of fun to play along with this, and I really enjoyed listening to casinostrat's and DeGroot's rock n roll soloing ideas smile.gif

Haha, that was not my intention but now when I think of it, it is indeed very similar biggrin.gif Željko's songs are always so catchy, it was perhaps my subconscious playing him biggrin.gif

Thanks Siniša for this great collab and also for your comments! You are indeed right about the dominant notes and I'll have to widen my choice in scales while improvising! I started learning a lot more about modes in these past few weeks and your comment is a real sign that more scale knowledge will be useful and refreshing smile.gif

Wow, that was an awesome final mix! Great Job everybody! Sinisa your right about that ending bit in mine, I was running out of ideas, and to tell you I was running out of steam in the fingers as well, they were getting tired. biggrin.gif

Amazing solos casino and dinaga ! That was a lot of fun to hear!

I am curious to try using other scales over this BT now. Good point about the piano. I did focus more on the rhythm guitar. Thanks!!
