If you do not have an active subscription the link above won't work, but you can still check them out by keeping track of the daily blues lick.

Hey GMC!

I have been working with Ken behind the scenes to come up with a new collab concept!

We wanted to make sure there was something in it for everybody - so we ended up with a track I would describe as Vai-meets-Slash-meets-GMC ??

Attached File  Vai_meets_Slash_collab.mp3 ( 2.16MB ) Number of downloads: 128

The idea is that we record over whichever section(s) we like. I will then mix it all together and try to add some vocals as well.

Here are the sections:

00:02 - 00:23 C Lydian

00:24-00:44 C - Ab - F (power chords) - try C minor pentatonic, C aeolian

00:44 - 01:04 Abmaj7 - Gm7 - Cm11 - F9 - try C minor pentatonic, C Dorian, C aeolian

Tempo: 92 bpm

* For best results, please send me your guitar only file without any reverb or delay
* To facilitate my mixing, please send me your track starting from "point 0" (ie from the first count-in)

Looking forward to hear what you think!

To many of us, Cael needs no introduction...

Admittedly this was a while back though - more specifically you are looking at 14 year old Cael ?

However as his beard grew, so did his musical skills! Here you can see one of his first GMC progress videos, from 2013 with Cosmin:

Fast forward to 2017 - and you can see he started developing jamming chops as well as a new level of technique and precision:

Just this progress would have been more than enough reason to celebrate. However one of the things that intrigues me with Cael is his constant strive for improvement. And most importantly, he is not afraid of expanding his search beyond the boundaries of his perceived limitations. He believes in his ability to acquire new areas of expertise. He goes all in - and BAM he does it. Let me show you what I mean -

In 2015 he started Gabriel's composition workouts:

Here you can hear the embryo of his song writing skills. It's obviously raw & instrumental - but it is packed with hooks and motivic development. Or as we say in the business - killer riffs!

Fast forward to 2021...

If you are in a hurry, listen from 00:55 - where Cael clearly shows us that if his song needs singing - he will learn to sing!


Now the reason we enjoy hanging out with Cael is not just because of his amazing progress that inspires us all, or his killer song writing ideas which has sparked several GMC collaborations.

No, it's actually for egotistical reasons - we enjoy Caels company so much. Constantly positive - Cael spreads a vibe that makes the GMC forum a better place, every day.

So Cael - thanks so much for being around. I am pretty sure you have inspired more people than we know about - and I know many more are to come. You are a Legend at GMC.

Keep doing what you do ❤️

I am really digging the fact that we have some very "listenable" tunes in the GMC radio. I just keep rotating our playlist ?

However our tastes are obviously different. So please vote in this poll - and if you have any ideas what you would like to do for the next collab let us know here!

Especially if you have never participated in a collab before - we are listening to you! Collabs are the best way to make progress, even if you just end up submitting one single lick.

A "Captcha" can look like this

Some people have reported problems with frequent captchas. Since these are shown algorithmically (meaning a machine decides who to show them to) it is very hard for me to test if this is an issue.

Thanks for sharing your experience.
