This is great stuff soldier! The only thing I would change is not using A MINOR. The backing is in E Minor so A can sound a bit off. other than that I thought it was great!

Thanks,

I was trying to use a G major scale, but landing on the E to give a Em flav, in the 5/7 fret part I guess.
But can move those licks somewhere else!

Cheers

I hear ya. Starting with the scale the song is in and focusing on the root note is always a good idea though. The root scale is the touchstone that then allows working in all other shapes. The root note is very important. If you land on and stay on an A note for example, you have resolved the scale and it sounds complete.

Hi Sarge,

ok made a few changes, now fully in Em. Occasional landing on the 5th, B, but mostly on E. This is the first solo i put together, really good exercise!

can probably still play it cleaner (especially the changes on the legato and the end), but starting to sound ok to my hears, what do you think?

thanks in advance

NICE!!! Been watching and re watching this to see if I missed anything and I think you have made some great progress here. After all, this is what it is all about. This is why we are here. You are expressing yourself musically. That's the entire point of what we do imho and you are doing it well. All of the practice, all of the learning, the theory, the drills, all of it comes down to interpreting what you hear and then responding to it using musical notes. It's great to see you putting a solo together using what you've learned and also clearly making it your own using your own licks. Super congrats on this. It's got just about everything we've touched on up to this point and then some. Congrats Soldier!! You are neck deep in it now!!!

Well fought. You just..


LEVELED UP!!!
