Hi guys

Long time since I haven't done a collab. I have just finished my chat session where many GMCers wanted to have a go over this backing. There comes the idea for this collaboration.

This one is designed for all neoclassical fans that can't shred. Don't worry about the fast playing, we can still make it sound great with long notes and slow feel. Neoclassical style is not all about shred. Of course all of you more advanced players can join but we don't want any 16th triplets in this one smile.gif I want you to keep it simple and focus on the melody.

This lesson has just been published and you can get all the ideas from there. I would like you to make a complete new melody and focus on smooth and nice note connection with a consistent vibrato. Vibrato is REALLY important here.

If you are not familiar with Harmonic/Natural Minor and Phrygian Dominant, you can use B Minor Pentatonic most of the time. In the diminished parts use diminished arpeggio. Vibrato should be played in 8th notes feel (two vibrating in one beat).

The chord progression:

Part 1
Bm
Em
A
D
G
E/G#
A
F#
(all this 2x)

Part 2
F#
Bm
G
Bm/F#
Fdim7
Fsus4 and F#
G dim 7
F#
Bm

Start with B minor scale, then switch to Em, then A mixolydian or A7 arpeggio (as that's the V chord) then D major etc... If you like you can just play arpeggios of these chords and make a melody out of it or you can play these full scales. If you are not comfortable with all these changes, you can use Bm pentatonic all the way until the E/G# comes.

For F# you can go for F# Phrygian Dominant or F#7 arpeggio. E/G# could be either G#dim7 arpeggio or E7 Phrygian Dominant. All these tricks are comon in neoclassical style. Combination of natural and harmonic minor is also interesting if you want to add some more interesting ingredients. If you like harmonic minor you can use it over Bm chord.

In the parts where the drums have some breaks you can folow those or just continue with the melody. The very last phrase you can finish unison with the backing.

Sound advice:
I need clear definition with not too much distortion and a warm type of gain. Please don't use some extreme metal distrtion. You can switch between neck and bridge position sometimes and make it more interesting colorwise. Try to send dry takes (no delay or reverb). Play with the effects but don't record them. I will add it later.

As usual, send one full track and one with guitar only. Both need to start from the same point or I will spend a day aligning your takes in the project smile.gif The tempo is 100bpm.

Ask anything you like, I am happy to answer anything you want to know.

The deadline is August 25th (2 weeks).

See you.

Hey Emir, this looks very cool, but I'm kinda scared of all the scale and mode switching biggrin.gif but maybe it'd be good for me.... You mind if I say I'm in, if I can do it?

Of course you can Kaz smile.gif Don't be scared. Those are just the guidelines. You don't need to play all that. We need really slow solo. I am sure you can find 2-3 right notes in every bar
