GMC Forum _ PRACTICE ROOM _ Collab: Latin Jam

Posted by: Kristofer Dahl Sep 14 2021, 09:00 AM

Hi guys,

Tflava suggested we try jamming over a latin kind of setting - so I did some deep digging and found a cool backing in Guido's https://www.guitarmasterclass.net/ls/Carlos-Santana-Style/ style lesson.

I split it up into two sections which I think will work nicely for a call & response kind of thing:


 PART_A.mp3 ( 567.88K ) : 126


Either of these scales will work well:
http://www.guitarmasterclass.net/scalegenerator

http://www.guitarmasterclass.net/scalegenerator


 PART_B.mp3 ( 567.88K ) : 110

Try the harmonic minor scale here:

http://www.guitarmasterclass.net/scalegenerator


----------------


* Bpm:100

* Key: C minor

* Record your take over part A and/or Part B

* export your take from the beginning of the backing track (aka "Point 0")

* For best results, send me your "guitar only" audio file without any reverb or delay. This way I will be able to make it sound like we are all jamming together.

I will record a response to your take asap and also mix everything so that you guys will be responding to each other.

Students and instructors can join!

There is no deadline, we can keep going for as long as the thread is active.

I hope you will like this idea & backing, I personally found jamming over it really inspiring! 😎

-----
FINAL RESULT:
Check it in our https://www.guitarmasterclass.net/k_pl_v3.html or http:///promo/radio/latin-jam-v2.mp3.

Sounds very cool!! Count me in smile.gif

Here is my first take, it's a tricky backing for me but hey ho have a go wink.gif

I'll have a go at part B later on, I need to get used to the harmonic minor wink.gif

If you want me to reamp with a different tone I can, or I can send the raw guitar file wink.gif





Guitar only file if you prefer it this way  Latin_Jam_Part_A_take_1_guitar.mp3 ( 939.79K ) : 66


Here is the TH-U Patch. I used it with a PRS SE Custom 24, neck pickup and tone rolled right off.  Magic_Woman.zip ( 1.43K ) : 62

Awesome Phil - great lines!! Please send me the guitar only file so I can record a response (best is if you send me a file with the amp of your choice - but without reverb/delay).

Thanks Kris, glad you like it. The second Soundcloud is guitar only and download enabled, I didn't record with any reverb or delay anyway.

UPDATE: Ooops I forgot to mute the backing when rendering the guitar only. I'll sort it. Sorry rolleyes.gif

Please excuse the dodgy vibrato, I have a neck /shoulder injury that makes it difficult at the moment rolleyes.gif

If that's no use to you I can put the file here later on wink.gif

Cheers

Thanks Todd, yes it is a TH-U patch but I accidentally rolled the tone all the way down on my guitar before I started looking for a patch, it's my PRS SE Custom 24 and the tone is also the coil tap knob and for some reason they always turn real easy.

I'll share the patch if you think it's worthy.

Cheers

Thanks buddy, probably worked out okay because I knocked the tone knob down before sorting the patch wink.gif

Posted by: Phil66 Sep 15 2021, 08:01 PM

Okay, the Soundcloud guitar only is now in the original post here https://www.guitarmasterclass.net/guitar_forum/index.php?s=&showtopic=62371&view=findpost&p=792323 also a guitar only file if you prefer that and I've put a zip of the TH-U patch in.

Posted by: Todd Simpson Sep 16 2021, 03:48 AM

Very cool patch!! Thanks for sharing in the THU patch vault!!

I don't mind polishing it a bit more, but if you think it's fine then I suppose I'm okay with it. I do kinda want to add a pick up note for the last motif (that two bar thing), but my brain was getting a bit troublesome!

Can I do one for Part B as well or is it only one part? smile.gif

Nice tone man

thanks, it's actually a metal amp in bias with the gain all the way down with a drive in front of it with low gain and level on 10

your take really progressed too

everyone , Ken , Ben , Phil whoever else I might have missed , the takes are great and it looks like we are giving Kris something to keep him busy wink.gif

Beautifull tone Ben.
How do you mic up your amp?
I use my boss waza expander but i will also try to expiriment with my SM57 and maybe record 2 signal at once.
Did you use 1 mic?

Posted by: Todd Simpson Sep 19 2021, 09:29 AM

It's got a great Santana type vibe! I almost went for something like this, but instead went the exact opposite way and did what I never try to do and just played rythm smile.gif

Wou! This is getting really cool!!

I think that my take is not starting on the right measure so it's not going with the chords.
By the way, your response is amazing! Thank you!! biggrin.gif

Posted by: Caelumamittendum Sep 24 2021, 02:20 PM

Very cool, Kris! I like how it's shaping up! smile.gif

Like Gab, I think my take is moved half a bar. Not that it matters, you should do what you see best. I think it may have been because I play an intro line in the 2 beats of the pick up before the first bar. I noticed some notes landed different than what I had recorded smile.gif

Sounding good so far. Lotsa different approaches.
*My 2nd solo, over the B part (2:55 or so) is one bar late (or two if you're counting in dbl time).
I'm reattaching my comp of that section ...

No worries! You're just composing something new, don't worry! laugh.gif

As Jacob Collier says, there are no "wrong notes", only strong and weak decisions:



So true! I often do something similar where I play all chromatic notes melodically over a pentatonic scale - and somehow it works!

Cool!! It sounds great now! Thanks a lot!!

Yep, everything is synced nicely!

*I know it's early in the process but all the leads are way up in front. It obscures the coolness of the track and especially the intricate rhythm, which is paramount in this type of music.

Posted by: Todd Simpson Sep 29 2021, 10:35 PM

I did that rythm take a bit back which was showing enormous restraint smile.gif I'm glad I did as everyon
has put in some great takes. I don't want to step on any of them. I really love BENS in particular.

Very cool Kris.
I think that my first part isnt in sync with the backing. It feels like if every phrase is a little after the beat.

Agreed, thanks for the feedback!

Ouch, I dunno what I was on...!

Anyhow here is a new mix where all of the above is hopefully improved.

On the positive side, it now sounds better than ever to me (though maybe not entirely for the right reasons..! πŸ˜… )

Yeah Ben's take is extremely tasty and I am once again blown away by his versatility.

Also Tflava's melody must have been epic, cause it's constantly in my head. I cannot remember last time that happened in a guitar-only collab. Usually when this happens, the only way for me to stop humming the melody, its to start playing it myself. So you will likely hear me play his licks soon 😁

I am trying to make this one as 'radio friendly' as possible. Please have a listen:

Any suggestions you have to make it even more radio-friendly is welcome πŸ˜…

Posted by: klasaine Oct 8 2021, 06:25 PM

Well, I'm not sure how 'radio friendly' a dozen different lead guitar parts is but it's sounding pretty cool to me.

*The guitars are still too loud.

I would also have some of the rhythm track sans guitar at the top and at the end to get the groove into the listeners head before all the leads start. Definitely a long fade on the end.

Wait, are you telling me long guitar solos no longer sell? 😜

Posted by: Kristofer Dahl Oct 13 2021, 09:26 AM

I followed Ken's idea and added a little intro and outro!

Sounds great Kris. I love the intro/outro. Xlnt work!
Thanks!

Posted by: Todd Simpson Oct 14 2021, 04:29 AM

It's sounding really cool!! its got a great vibe imho. Although, "radio friendly" might be a stretch on a song with no vocals, it certainly works as a song imho. Awesome!!

OUR TRACK IS LIVE 🀩 check it out in the https://www.guitarmasterclass.net/k_pl_v3.html

I must admit this collab fills me with a super warm feeling inside. It's such a good representation of our community:

We start with a basic idea to jam, and we end up with a unique, fresh- and killer sounding track. Can't believe we did it!!

Posted by: MisterM Oct 20 2021, 02:58 PM

Hi there

Damn I’m too late..... This collab is beautiful.
The result is very professional, I loved listening to it.
It’s hard to recognize the players...

Bravo.

Sounds great!
Really nice playing from everyone.

Posted by: Todd Simpson Oct 21 2021, 04:05 AM

This turned out amazingly well imho. It's so very musical. It's not just a bunch of solos back to back but feels like a real song. Well done everyone!!

Sorry I didn't get in on this either Kris. sad.gif
Things have been quite frantic around here lately, some in a good way and others not so much. Will hopefully be in a far better position for the next one!!

The final mix sounds great, had it on repeat in the Workshop for ages!!!
Well done everybody!!!
