So after the Challenge thread started by Iainsteward onn Marcus Lavendell's board(https://www.guitarmasterclass.net/guitar_forum/index.php?showtopic=19689&st=0), it's time to bring the challenge to the main scene tongue.gif

I would like to challenge anyone, both instructors and members, to learn to play Guthrie Govan's infamous jam over the Larry Carlton track
https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=bUZK9dasP8s
The challenge is to do it in one week! so good luck to whoever takes on this challenge! Personally I'm also trying to learn it but it will take me way more than a week to perfect it tongue.gif

Post you'r challenges here, and have fun smile.gif

Right, so after some thought, here are 3 more challenges for various skill levels:

Beginner : https://www.guitarmasterclass.net/solo-guitar/blue-note-in-a/ A preety easy lesson by Muris, which will improve you'r phrasing, vibrato, and bending, and dynamic skills.

Intermidiate : https://www.guitarmasterclass.net/solo-guit...lo-in-Eb-minor/ First lesson by the new instructor Pedja Simovic, some unique blues solo ideas, which will give you a taste of fusion!

Advanced : https://www.guitarmasterclass.net/solo-guitar/lesson-no-1000/ If you can Mimic Kris's unique Rythm sense, I salute you!

So have fun guys, you got one week! so practice hard and share you'r results next saturday!

I guess you can buy it off Bluesjamtracks.com but the site seems to be down at the moment.. and you could also ask Tjchep for it since I know he has it smile.gif

If you want a tab, you can find it on ultimate guitar.

the whole solo can be found on ultimate guitar as a gp5 file. The transcription is 100 % accurate

I also recorded a backing that resembles the backing Guthrie uses very much. Means same tonality and the baseline is close. I'll upload it in the members only upload section. I call it Larrys Blues

I believe but I prefer developping my ears and figure out this improvisation by myself. What about you other GMCers? smile.gif

Well this kind of improvisation is too much for my ears =p so I'm sticking with the tab!

By the way, I thought about this. and I'm gonna edit the first post with 3 more challenges, Beginner level, Intermidiate, and advanced, and the current challenge will be in the Super Advanced category ph34r.gif

In one week? ... you mean this year? ...smile.gif
It's a great idea, but i think i have to pass sad.gif .. Guthrie's version is just to hard, but i would love to hear some tracks !!

btw ... bluesjamtracks.com is still online and playing hours over the Larry Carlton track is worth the £0.99 wink.gif ... i just bought it 2 weeks ago and it's so much fun!!

Problem with Guthrie's take is that it's 80% improvised,
even himself wouldn't play it the same way next time.
I might give it a try tho. smile.gif

I tried learning this piece awhile back, let me try and give it another go. No promises here if i can't get it right i am not going to post it.


The biggest problem i had with it is the fret jumping he does, when moving laterally across the strings i don't have a problem doing fast passages. But when doing 3 string trill type stuff thats moving upwards i can't get the rhythm right cause my hand wants to stay anchored.


Muris, i doubt you would find any of this track too much of a challenge, there is nothing really difficult about it. Its not really fast, as you can hear i am sure. The trick is the rhythms he uses are a bit odd.


But like i said i will try it again, maybe i will have more success this time.


Daniel

My biggest problem with it is the fast legato part around the middle of it.. I think it's more because of my guitar though, the spaces between my frets seem too small for my fingers.

Wrk: You should attempt the Advanced challenge than, I don't think it will pose too much trouble for you smile.gif
