I've been practicing alot of 8 finger tapping lately, And one of the exercises I do, sounded cool so I decided to do a short 1 minute solo over it. I played to it about 3 or 4 times and then just recorded whatever happened, I like it and its the first time I recorded an improv take of myself.

Let me know what ya think.

That was nice jam!!

Note, seems like you're hanging on relative major pentatonic
and this is pure mixolydian progression,
try to catch root note more often.just a suggestion,good work. smile.gif

Nice solo and rhythm guitar smile.gif
I give you a tip: instead of bending the notes in to out (a note from the scale to one outside the scale) you can bend a note outside the scale to one that's inside like Marty Friedman does. That will give you a stranger sounding because you are adding semitones to the scale but you "correct" them.
Watch the bending in the 0:17.

Thanks for the tip Muris, I'll try to remember that when I do more improv in the future smile.gif

I never thought of that before, But it sounds like it would give a cool sound to it, Plus I like stranger sounding, its always more interesting to me. Thanks again smile.gif
