JVM I like the idea a lot! Bluesy Dorian backing track, great laid back tempo for soloing. What needs to happen is your 2nd guitar part, when you are doing those rhythm Hendrix like double stop fills, needs to be much tighter and with drums! If you get this, record it again and get it to sound tighter, then your solo will sound tighter later on automatically. Also, I don't know if I mentioned or not but you can "step record" when recording. That means you can record one beat, bar or any length that you want by using markers when recording and activating them. That way recording only starts and stops at the points you labeled!
So what I will do now is since you did good drums and decent bass line, I will approve this but in your 3rd assignment you will need to correct rhythm guitar and do a solo!

JVM we now continue with more assignments. I will assign you 3rd, 4th and REC assignment now as we have 11 days to complete the whole work. 3rd assignment will be REC as well so we are really doing 2 assignments wink.gif

3rd assignment :

Triads in C major scale part 1

- Record video of Triads in C major scale part 1 lesson found HERE
- Use backing track provided in the thread when recording it.
- Try to apply left hand fingerings I applied but stick to right hand fingerings all the way.
- Upload video on Youtube and post it in this thread here.
- After you are done with video, post it for REC program!

4th assignment :

Dorian mode backing and soloing

- Correct your rhythm guitar on the backing you provided (make it more tighter and on click)
- Record a solo at least 16 bars (video and/or audio is both acceptable) using chord tones only from the given chords. So if your chord is B min7, you can only play notes B D F# A in any order or way you want. You also have a choice to play just some notes out of the chord, you don't have to play all of them!
- Post your work in this thread here.

Deadline for both assignments is 31st of December!


Let me know if I could help in any way.

Pedja

Should be no problem Pedja. I will have my family visiting for the holiday, but I think I can find the time to accomplish this smile.gif

I've re-recorded the rhythm guitar and improved the bassline I think, but I have a question about the solo. How strictly do you want me to use chord tones in the solo? There are a couple points in the rhythm where chords are just kind of passing, do I need to hit those chord tones as the chord is passing, or can I feel the 'gravity' of the progression and use the tones of the main chords as the progression shifts in it's direction? I hope that was understandable.

Do one take with what you have in mind and then I can tell you if it is good enough. Ideally I would want you to do it 100% through the solo. This will enable your ears to start looking interval and harmony relationship faster.

Hi Pedja,

things are calming down a lot after the holiday and I may be able to finish the assignments in time, but it will be close.

Hi JVM,

The problem is, my family is going to a different town tomorrow for new year's celebrations. While I have the lesson pretty much down and I think I could do the solo tomorrow for you (though I do already have a recorded solo, just it's not chord tones only), the biggest obstacle will be simply producing the video, syncing with the audio. If you have any tips to help there, that would be great.

And I may end up staying here at home while the family goes out, I have had enough celebrating for the past week biggrin.gif We'll see. For now I'm being pulled away again, but perhaps I could even do the solo later tonight.

JVM no worries my friend. Submit the solo that you have, I am sure you included chord tone elements in it. Regarding the lesson, I am not sure how you want me to help you with video syncing and all? The video you submitted in December showed me that you could do audio + video together, I didn't see anything wrong with that video. If you submit triads lesson that way it will be perfect!

Pedja, where can I get the backing for this lesson? I think I may have to do the video tomorrow. You can still probably give me my next assignment on time tomorrow though, if you like. Here's the solo:

Pedja, sorry I am late with this, but you can find the video here! I don't know what you mean by the video I submitted earlier, you must have me confused with someone else as I actually did not submit a video (it wasn't required for the december MTP). Posting to the rec forum now, then.

I hope you had a great new years too, I know I maybe partied a little too hard on the eve!

Sorry about that JVM, I responded quickly yesterday. You submitted audio of your work which is what I meant to say. I will go ahead and check your REC submission now...

Fantastic take JVM!
Since you have completed all your work for December, I will close this thread and open January one for you today.
