Bondy - Great effort m8! great "first ever" attempt smile.gif

just for note I think your guitar may be a tadge out of tune with the backing, but anyways ignoring that, you have a nice tone there smile.gif A little gentle vibrato here n there would help give this some feel as well, be careful when bending your notes not to take yourself out of scale (for certain styles this can be done for effect) make sure you are bending to another note in the scale, again its all down to practice, your certainly heading in the right direction, keep improvising with the backing and recording your takes, the more and more you do it the more and more you will get better at it, the notes will flow a lot easier and you`ll hit upon passages that you like and can build a solo around.

Generally when I`m improvising its to build a set solo, I start of just playing around then I`ll listen back and hear a bit that I like, so in the next take I`ll include it in the same place but add something different and so on till I build a whole solo up.

Well done m8, I`m impressed with your first ever solo, its only going to get better from here biggrin.gif

Great lesson, it's not too long ago I learned pretty much same thing, and it took me hours to understand what the h... was going on laugh.gif If I'd known this lesson at the time it would have taken me .. well, less time.

One thing though, the link to the backing track seems to be broken. I can access the video, but not the mp3.

Woop, EDIT: For some reason the mp3 works for me now, don't know what happened. Glee to the world!

Next part, I`m hoping will be up tomorrow providing camera etc behaves itself, we`ll be looking at some small techniques for you to add to your improvisations to make them sound cool and a simple solo with a backing for you to learn smile.gif
