Great I am looking forward to hear your take!
My approach is very simple! smile.gif Take a lick you want to master, learn it, and start using it when you are jamming! Use it as much as you can, change it up if you want! You can noodle through the track but make sure to concentrate and use lick you are learning!
Do it for a couple of days and this lick will become your own!



That makes more sense than the way I have been doing it. :-)
I shall start doing this right away.

Here is my take

This was fun! It was a challenge at first, as your take is smooth, tasty, and professional, I had to come up with something that would suit it.
Looking forward to your feedback...

(I wish my Vibrato was alot more developed) dry.gif

Thanks cool.gif

I thought I did! smile.gif
Your take was amazing! I was very very impressed! Very nice sound and great playing! I actually have decided to switch the track and get into something more complicated with you! smile.gif
This one has chord changes!
C6, Am9, Dm9, G11, C, Am7, Bm7, D7, G6, G6, F#m7, B9, E, G7#5.
http://soundcloud.com/alex-feather-akimov/jazzy

Let's work on this chord progression If we will analyze the first three chords we will get this:
C6 - C - E - G - A
Ami9 - A - C - E - G - B
Dmi9 - D - F - A - C - E
You can play C major scale over it
or A minor, D minor, E minor pentatonics

I would like you to analyze the rest of the chords we are going diatonic only so no melodic or harmonic minor yet!
But we will be using this track for those as well!
Let me know if you have any questions or need help!

Thanks alot! That's a great compliment coming from you. ohmy.gif
After your suggestion of reducing the amount of gain, I spent a fair bit of time on the tone setting on the AXE FX 2 until i found something that reacted well with the dynamics of the left and right hand....

The next task will be a good process for me as i have never sat back and broke down a backing track like this.

I'll start on this tomorrow and let you know how it goes,

Thanks cool.gif

I am glad you are learning new things! smile.gif
Makes me feel happy!
It is a very good idea to analyze tracks before you play over them and know the chord progressions and what you can play over those! It is also a very fun thing to do! I remember when I started doing it I was opening a "Real Book" and just analyzing standards! This system works very well! Eventually you will see yourself seeing a chord and playing over it without thinking!

When I heard your take I thought your vibrato sounded great! That's why I didn't post the exercise! If you still want me to just let me know!

That's great to hear. No need for specific excercise... I will work off your feedback from future recordings.

Thanks

Slowly. I have broken down the backing into 3 key changes at this stage.

But I am finding it difficult to match licks to the backing as it's a constantly changing chord progression. I'm all good with a blues or rock sort of backing, as it is usally in the same key, but this one has got me working on it alot.

Thanks

It's good! If it's challenging means you are learning something new!
The reason I gave you this chord progression is because you are sounding very good over Diatonic chord progressions and this challenge will change the way you usually analyze chord! It will challenge you in a new way! Let me know if you have any questions or need helP! s

Yea Alex I do need some help with this one.

I havit it in the Key of Amin, and changes to B min when the Bmin7 chorde comes in. I know there needs to be another change when F#m7 comes in.... but not sure what key.

I am ok with blues backing as it is only a few chords, but this one has me stuck a bit :-)

Thanks

G7#5 E harmonic minor

F#m7, B9 - F# dorian
E, G7#5 - E melodic minor

Let me know if it helps! smile.gif If not I will do more detailed explanation
