Hi guys !

Its great to be back - I had some virus with my last computer as most of you know, so it took extra day to get new computer and put all the software in it.
Lets talk about this collaboration !


The idea is to run it like a class type of collaboration. Every future collaboration of mine will have specific topic chosen to correspond with backing track. That way you can focus soloing and improving specific areas that you need to work on.

For this first collaboration I choose SEQUENCE to be primary source of soloing. Sequence by definition is group of notes that are repeated trough different scale degree or moved trough scale. Why is sequence important ? Well sequence by itself implies repetition, and music without repetition is not good music period smile.gif
We can have melodic , rhythmic and both melodic and rhythmic sequence.
For this collaboration I want you to focus on melodic sequence, that means if you play 3 notes you need to move those 3 notes trough the next scale degree etc. It also helps you use rhythmic sequence with melodic as you might be starting on the same beat and ending your phrase , which will make everything a lot easier for you that are starting with this!


Ok, now about collaboration.

Chord progression has 16 bars (with pre count bar total of 17), and its in the key of C# minor. C#minor is related key to E major key!
Here is the chord progression :

// C# min/ B / A / B /
/ C# min/ B / A / B /
/ C# min/ B / A / B /
/ C# min/ B / A / B / /

Chord progression might remind you of billion songs you heard which is perfect cause you can have billion different sequencing ideas in it !
All along the watchtower is one that comes to my mind wink.gif



Sign up in this thread , number of participants is open for all levels and styles.
You shouldn't have any trouble with this but if you do ask questions and I will answer them all.

I will also provide couple of my takes that demonstrate what I want you to do !

Thanks Andy, glad you like it !
You are in of course smile.gif

In the meanwhile please check out my improvised take over backing track. It should show you what I am really looking for in this collaboration - strictly sequencing ideas !
Thats why it should be easier then regular collabs wink.gif

Check out my take on top of the page or HERE

In the meanwhile I might record couple of more takes if you still have some questions and are unclear about sequence wink.gif

Hm... I cant promise you anything. I was thinking of running another parallel collaboration with different soloing approach. The reason why I specified 10 days for this one is because you don't need to compose over it, just display soloing ability using sequence smile.gif
February is kinda short month so I would like to have takes earlier if possible if not next month is around the corner smile.gif
