Hello GMC !

Today I present you my first Fusion collaboration. The reason why I named it Fusion is because chord progression (harmony) allows you to blend and mix many different styles , and if you do it well it will sound Jazzy too smile.gif

Tempo for this backing track is 120bpm. Time signature is 4/4.
Chord progression goes like this

/ A min7/ A min7/ A min7/ A min 7/
/ C min7/ C min7/ C min7/ C min7/
/ F# min7/ F#min7/ G7sus4 (F/G)/ G#dim7 (E7b9/G#)/
/ A min7/ A min//


As you see, this chord progression is not diatonic at all times, which means you can't just play one scale and get trough it.
First 4 bars have A min 7 chord, which gives you ability to use A minor pentatonic, A Dorian mode, A natural minor even A harmonic and melodic minor (with care).
Second 4 bars have C min 7 chord, so here we have direct modulation to C minor tonality , where you can play everything you did for A minor now just in C !
Next 2 bars we have F# min7 where the same rules apply as for A and C minor!
Following bar is G7sus4 or F triad with G in the bass. This is Fusion chord used by many artists in fusion genre. It basically comes from C major scale and think of as G mixolydian mode (or C major played from G).
Next bar has G# dim7 or E7b9 with G# in the bass chord. Here you can play diminished 7 arpeggios from G#, B, D and F. If you are looking for ideal scale, here you can use A harmonic Minor starting from G# or E preferably smile.gif
Last two bars have A minor tonality where everything is resolved and now we are back at the beginning !


This collaboration is open to all levels and styles.
Deadline for submitting all takes is 28th of January.

Don't forget you can always play arpeggios, sequence, motive development , repetition, question and answer phrasing, time feel change etc.

You can upload your take HERE
I look forward to your takes on this one.

Enjoy the backing !

Pedja

Count me too, Pedja!

The backing is really interesting, I love how the tension culminates at the g# diminished chord... This is going to be real challenge for me...

@Velvet Roger


I don't understand this either: there is another thread with the same name and with exactly the same content WITH backing attached. I've already signed up there with other people too... Maybe this tread wanted to be the one for the uploads huh.gif
