As I said in your uploads thread, been playing around with a piano backing as well Jeff. Was getting a bit board with other things so decided to do something different and try to be creative.. biggrin.gif Take a listen, Not a complete improv as I would play around a little bit in certain sections then I put it all together in one take.

Nice work Steve! smile.gif It has structure and you worked out different phrasings of your melody line. Watch all the long notes though. If you’re going to use them it would help to use some vibrato.

Playing along with different instruments is fun and it can create some nice fresh ideas. I've been trying to find a cool backing with saxophone to jam with.

You'll wear them out and lose their attention." —Tom Principato

Thanks Jeff, the structure and development was what I was most after. Still a long ways away but as I add technique and further knowledge of notes, I think I will get better. smile.gif Just not enough time now a days...Wish I would have started this adventure 25 years ago... laugh.gif

If you think you can find a little time, jump in Ivan's "Stormy Collab" with me. Its just basic blues in A and if you want we can work thru it together. Sounds like fun to me smile.gif

Very cool! I am inside your mind..... ph34r.gif blink.gif unsure.gif

If you want to discuss ideas or anything else we can do that here. No need for video stuff, just short mp3 are fine and quicker. smile.gif

Note choice was good and I like the way you start with the bend! 2 words for you "Neck Pickup". Big fat blues tone. smile.gif Maybe thats just my personnel prefrence though.

Keep the clips coming Steve.

Mine too man! smile.gif Something I have been working on is tonality difference between neck and bridge and when to switch. I'll keep updating on the progress. Would love to hear how your take progresses as well. smile.gif Btw, happy Happy Fourth! Beverages flowing... laugh.gif

What do you think man.. I'm getting all I can get out of these Duncan Designed p/up's and the EMG's were a bit to much. I'm fairly satisfied with it, I think. unsure.gif laugh.gif

Sounds good man! smile.gif
There are a few things I would suggest and this could just be my taste maybe.

1.) Think about the structure of it. You have a beginning (good), Middle going into the change fits also, but the end isn't really clear. The story doesn't end or resolve. Just something to think about.

2.) In the middle part it would be nice if you could work in the Blues note some. You are just playing straight pentatonic the whole time and adding a lick with that note will give it more color and sound more bluesy.

I will upload my progress a little later for you to comment on.

Thanks for the comments Jeff. smile.gif I'll work a bit more on it and see if I can add some color. Looking forward to hearing what you have so far!

Check out this take Jeff. I think it adds a bit of color and sounds a little more bluesy. I still have to work on the ending, not happy with it.

OK Steve, so here you go. I usually wouldn't ever post such a ruff take but for you I'll make an exception. smile.gif
I figured I'd try and make this some what of a learning thing for the both of use. cool.gif

Here is where I'm at. First thing I do with a collab is find a tone that fits the mood of what I'm going for. Then I just play slowly through it to get a feal for where I want to be on the neck and what notes to finish on. This is far from a finished product.

Comment away biggrin.gif

I'm diggin it man! smile.gif Love the note choice and the pre-bends definitely add some flavor. I can see how landing on the right note in each passage sets the stage for the next. I'll take what I can from it bro, thanks and keep updating.

Have you listened to the latest of mine? disregard the ending as that will change for sure! wink.gif

Haha... I didn't even see that ohmy.gif . What kind of mentor am I anyway? laugh.gif tongue.gif

This one has much more color to it don't you think? I like what you where trying to go for at the end so keep working on that part.

Only other thought I had was to try and finish each phrase (lick) and stop! Don't let all the long notes ring some much. Think of the question and answer technique. Ask a question (STOP) and then answer (STOP).

Great progress! smile.gif

OK man, took your advice and added some start-stop phrases. I'm liking this take a lot better! smile.gif

EDIT: New Take with some changes from the previous...
