Dan,
You just did a lesson on scales. Pick a box in the key your are working on for the backing track and start coming up with some licks. They don't need to be flashy or anything. The point here is to get your mind thinking about how to follow a chord progression, how to come up with licks. You can do it man. Remember my children analogy? laugh.gif laugh.gif JUST DO IT!! SIGN HIM UP MURIS!! biggrin.gif


Fair enough man.. I can try it. Although I am on baby watch this week so if you decide not to take me Muris it will be understood..

Muris... I have never played modal stuff, so I have no idea how to approach this. Can you maybe give me a little help on this one?

This is going to be a tricky one for sure since there's a lot going with the backing track and Muris's lessons based on this are stellar examples ... a tough act to follow.

I've memorized the Muris's three Lydian mode lessons, but honestly, there's no way I can play the intermediate or advanced at full tempo. I use them in my daily practice routine though, cause they contain great AP licks which is something I hope to get good at someday.

So my approach to this, and what I'd recommend to someone else who is new to modes, is going to be to first gain full knowledge of where the notes are for the two Lydian scales that are present in the lesson, then come up with a melodic solo using these notes/scales. I'm going to try to use fewer notes and to focus on melody since I really don't have the chops to play 32nd note AP runs at this tempo. Try the intermediate lesson and you'll know what I mean. I can play it really well now at half tempo, but that won't cut it for this collab. So I'm going to have to use fewer notes. Muris's beginner lesson is an awesome example of making fewer notes into a rocking solo and it sets a pretty high bar for sure.

Last night I jammed over this backing track for about a half hour and it made me see just how much of a challenge it is to come up with something cool that's focused on melody instead of technical achievement. You have to change your way of thinking about a solo instead of just finding the right key and letting it rip. (which is a blast but usually only works on a simpler backing track and for me at least, always ends up sounding the same). So this collab, my take will be about using fewer notes and still attempting to make it agressive sounding and interesting to listen to. smile.gif


Jim.

Hey Monte:
How come you're not in this one? ... oh now I remember that you're in the first one.
Looking forward to hearing your awesome take! cool.gif

No worries Muris. My take is going to be as original as I can make it. wink.gif

Im almost done writing the solo biggrin.gif. There are some speedy parts I still need to get more control over... but other than that I think I have something here haha. The only thing im worried about is that the solo might not come out the way I want cause of my poor recording gear sad.gif. But we will see. I wil post my take very soon smile.gif.
