Here is the latest improv I've recorded, and I believe my most favorite one so far. I really like the first 35 seconds of it. Let me know what you think!

That sounds great man! Lots of people have troubles soling using major type scale, but for you it is not a problem as I see! smile.gif Very nice, and rhythmically very balanced, nice sense for rhythm, and phrase development, specially that great part at 1.09. Very well done mate ! smile.gif

Nice playing mate! Been trying to figure out what your guitar is, like a strat but with a flyd rose type trem?

Nice man. I like your ideas here!
You may want to research strong chord notes and all that, to make your landings more confident.
Also, I think you could benefit from doing more of Question and answer development in this kind of jamming!

In addition, your vibrato is ok, but a bit unstable. you may want to work on making it a bit more fluid, as it shows a greater feeling. Good feel is really important in soft stuff. (not saying that you lack feeling ,but as with every one of us it could always get better!)

Regards

Thanks, I'm actually much more comfortable soloing in the major scale than I am in any other scale. It has always been my favorite to jam to.

Thanks! Yes, it is a strat. Its a squier strat that I've completely modified. It has a 2 fender lace sensor pickups, a seymour duncan hot rails in the bridge, and a floyd rose tremolo, too.

Thanks very much. I really like it too! Its a preset on POD Farm called "Auld Lang Syne Rock." Its basically a plexi amp with a fuzzface in front of it. I love the way it sounds through the hot rails pickup on my strat.

That was really cool, great idias, and you are not afraid to move around the fretboard. Using major scales in solos opens up a whole new world. smile.gif

You got the chops, and with a few months of practice you will start to sound pro. Keep it up. smile.gif
