Hello Everyone

I've been wanting to lead a collab for a long time, and I thought it would be fun to play over some old fashioned blues backing track, I used this backing track on a lesson, and every now and then I play it and Jam with it.

So lets jam together, throw in your bluesy licks, chose your scale, this progression gives you a lot of freedom, mix them up and be creative. We can all learn from each other here.

I don't have a limit for the participants. But don't want an extremely large Jam.

Please upload your take completely dry (no time based effects, delay, reverb), on the upload with the backing track mix with your effects and stuff so I can get an Idea of what you want, and also let me know on your upload post.

Cheers

Participants:

1. Organized Confusion - Recorded
2. Coffeeman
3. Marc_Maiden - Recorded
4. kjutte
5. berko - Recorded
6. Jesse -
7. Dexxter - Recorded
8. Enforcer - Recorded
9. Oxac - Recorded
10. Bluesrock - Recorded

I already recorded biggrin.gif I even made an intro part... (I hope that I'm not disqualified...)

Jose, this was just an improvisation so I didn't want to make 2 takes. But just a little reverb and delay please.

Also, I have a problem when improvising like this. I get very stiff in my right wrist and I start digging too deep >.< Any tip? When I don't improvise my technique is much better. But somehow I get insecure and my playing really suffer from it.

Hey Oxac, cool intro, you are not disqualified but I was thinking of putting everyone's performance in the order that is on the list, I might have to cut the parts that you extended (before and after) I'll see what I can do

You are in

I guess I will keep it open till Friday, for more signups, lets see if we make 15.

By the way, when I meant dry, I meant no reverb or delay, but you should use amp emulation distortion compression and other effects that are part of your sound. It seems that I may have caused some confusion
