> HEY MAN, I really need your help...

...the thing is, I need you to start progressing faster then ever, but to achieve that I need your help:

* Don't know where to start? Just pm me and we will sort it out directly, I am online every day.

* Join My Army. Sounds aggressive? It is! We can study anything from the most fearsome picking techniques to bombastic songwriting. A medal of honor awaits the brave. Seriously, this is an opportunity for you to get a personalised learning experience...what are you waiting for?!

* Join my next video chat! GMC startpage holds a video chat schedule. We always cover a lot of ground and have fun. Remember that you don't need any previous knowledge, and you can be passive in the chat.

* Jam with me - you will find active collabs here.

* Post a topic on this board, guitar related or not - doesn't matter! You will find that chatting with instructors boosts your motivation to practice.

* You haven't missed my latest video lessons, have you?

* Finally I want to tell you a secret. Nah I changed my mind - pm me instead ;)

Hello guys!! Welcome to my new collaboration! This time I will share a backing inspired in Neoclassical Power Metal bands like Stratovarius and Sonata Artica. This is an audio collab, so everybody that has the possibility to record audio can join. smile.gif

This backing is in E minor but you have to alternate between the scales E minor aeolian and E hamonic minor.

The chord progression is:

E5 - E (+5) - B5
C5 - D5 - G D/F# - E5 - D5
C5 - D5 - B5

You can use E minor all the time excepting when the chord B5 is sounding. There you have to use E harmonic minor.






Deadline: May 3rd. (14 days)

Who is in?

This will be really cool, the backing track is really awesome, but I think it's too hard for me, and I have no improvisation/writing skill for the moment :/

ey man! don't worry, this collabs are for practice. Let me know if you want me to help you to work on this one. We can start a Gab's Army thread and work on this backing or maybe starting with any other.

This is just an AWESOME backing man, just killer. I've enjoyed your backing tracks in the past but this really takes it to a new level. It's honestly a perfect backing. Just begs for some serious riffage. I think I may have seriously overplayed but it seemed to work smile.gif Hope you guys dig it!

Final take! As we talked in my thread I did change those notes around to fit better into the transition. I ended up playing the whole part differently and look forward to your thoughts on it. I like it better myself, although one note was muted near the end of the run.

Can I get a Guitar pro file of the backing track????
I've got the main feel of how I'll do the solo..... but need to figure out the right notes in front of the right chord... So that I'll play 'em like I mean 'em

Play with emotion. Playing with all technique and no emotion makes you boring. And most importantly, Make faces while bending.
