Ok Marc, here we go with new MTP rules. You will be required to submit 3 assignments in October, all on weekly basis.

1st assignment is due on 17th of October.

I want you to upload audio and/or video of you improvising over Blue Bossa. You should use your own backing (the one you created) and apply improvising approaches we talked about in your thread. Record at least 2 choruses of improvisation!

Let me know if you got any questions!

Very nice melodic ideas Marc. I like the development and repetition you used in the solo.
Like we said before phrasing needs work, especially up beat rhythm placement. Check out part from 0:24-0:28 and you will hear what I mean.

We will work on phrasing in future assignments so we will correct that I am sure. Overall good work and expect your new assignment soon.

Marc we are moving to your 2nd assignment for this month. We will focus on phrasing !

2nd assignment is due on 26th of October.

- Record backing track using lead sheet provided bellow.(Blues in F)
- Feel free to use your own guitar voicings and comping.
- Tempo of your choice!
- Backing track should have drums and harmony at least!
- Record a chorus solo over backing track using only down beat based rhythm.
- If you finish assignment feel free to record another chorus of just up beat based rhythm.

Let me know if you have any questions!
