Thanks! I'm learning so much from the collab comments here. This was my first personalized comment. Would it be cool if I upload a new one after taking what you said in to consideration? I understand if not - that could result in these going on forever. Thanks again for sharing your expertise with us!

Here's mine:

This was a challenging track to solo over. It was hard to find a "feel" for some reason.

Been listening to a lot of Frank Zappa and Ron Jarzombek recently. And I guess that makes me come up with rhythmic ideas that I can't actually execute (as you'll hear).

Thanks in advance for comments!

This is a very interesting take, I love the jazzy licks you did! The one thing that could be better with your solo as a whole is structuring the licks in a more fluid way and just keeping the logical melodic flow available for the listener to hear. Putting several jazzy licks is good (specially if they are nice as you played them! smile.gif ), but I get the impression that you could insert some kind of thematic and melodic approach as well. Even for this kind of track where we have only one dominant chord available, you can still experiment with various melodies, themes, call&response sequences, and all this adds to the quality of the solo.
In the end of the solo you inserted some very nice bluesy licks as well and they were a very nice touch, so I think you made a good fusion here. The only thing I'm missing to hear here is some kind of main theme that connects all these parts together as a whole.
Your tone is good, notes come out clean and precise, perhaps not all of them are equally strong, some notes are bit weak here and there, but all in all very solid take with good tone definition. I didn't liked that much the amount of space added here, it's a bit dark and too strong, so perhaps cutting down the volume of delay, and EQing the reverb to be a bit lighter would sound even better over this kind of track.
All in all, great take, good jazzy feel, and great licks. Thank you very much for joining in the collab and I hope to see you on the next one as well. Cheers smile.gif

Thanks for your positive response Ivan! I agree to what you're saying, but i'm not sure of the purpose here. Should a solo be constructed or should it just be pure improvisation? The sound is real shit... haha.. I guess I have to turn that knobs around a little bit more. smile.gif I've been "retired" for the past ten years, and haven't been played a note since the last weeks. I will like to forward my experience to all the young players out there: NEVER make any compromises about what you are playing - in the end you're gonna be fucked up on music! I was in 10 years, since I was playing "commercially" and could'nt stand anymore... So just play the music YOU like. Btw. this is a great site with great instructors, and I really enjoying beeing here!!! biggrin.gif biggrin.gif biggrin.gif

Hey no problem man, glad you like the comment, and I hope I helped in some way.

You can construct the solo or you can improvise, both things are done, depending on various situations. Ideally, every solo should be improvised, but it requiers a lot of skill and experience. I believe that in these collaborations solos should be improvised, because improvisations show the players abilities more objectively. Of course not all improvised solos are great, which is perfectly normal, and we can all develop our improvising abilites further. The goal when giving advices in collabs is to focus on the things said during practice, so these things can be executed "at will" later when playing.
