Roger,

Here is the first take of the SRV Collab that I came up with. I made it up as I went along, but this seems to be what I have to work with. Still rough...some screwed up notes here and there but this is just a take for you to check out...not the final upload one.

Ben

p.s. I think I need to turn up the guitar volume in Audacity for the final take...think it is too low in this?

Ok, back from work and listened to your take a couple of times.

First of all, I am really happy that you did it! It's the best way to improve your playing besides doing lessons and regular practice smile.gif. There are definitely some nice bluesy sounding licks in your solo, so you are heading in the right direction!!!! rolleyes.gif

---
Ok, here is a bit of an analysis on your take and I tried to give you some pointers to work a bit on:

You start of nicely in a syncopated way (2 1/2 beats rest before starting playing) with a nice slow bend to the F# and pre-bending back to the E (due to the slow bending the so-called blue-note will be heard as well (the F note), which gives it a very nice bluesy character.

The repetitive lick thereafter is also nice, however you can accent the first note (D note) a bit more of that lick to give it somewhat more power.

Then you go for a couple of 3/4 bends from the D note on the high E string (if I am not mistaken) at 0:18. 3/4 bends can certainly be added some nice variation to solo's however to my taste it's too dominant and too long in it's current form. I would rather go for a full stop bend instead in this case instead of 3/4 bends (or if you experimental a bit a longlasting full stop bend followed by a very quick 3/4 bend to taste it up a bit smile.gif). After these bends I have the feeling that you lost a bit track whilst playing for a while?

At 0:28 you have a somewhat faster descending lick which is nice, but you ended it quite abrupt wink.gif . Some wide vibrato after that (or 1/2 step bends if you like) which sound good and stable! Try to apply some more vibrato on the longer duration notes (which was noticable especially in the middle part) to add more feeling to add (otherwise it stays a bit sterile).The slide down the neck could be a bit slower and smoothly (sounded quite short).

The ending was nicely done, except maybe for the very last note, which is the 5th of the B minor pentatonic scale. I would suggest that you end on the root note instead.
---

I tried to give you quite extensive comments, as I think that is most useful at this stage. You did a nice job so far already, try to let all the passages flow a bit better, apply some vibrato if you can and think about a couple of bends and it will be killer rolleyes.gif rolleyes.gif !

I hope this is helpful and feel free to upload another take smile.gif

Well done Ben! Overall it's certainly better than the previous one and you certainly have some nice bluesy licks in it smile.gif
