Hey GMC dudes

Here's a video of me playing some blues over a 'The Thrill is Gone' style track.
I was listening to blues, and so I decided to play over something like this. It's just an improvisation.
Any feedback is appreciated!

Thanks for watching!

Very good improvisation. I found it really interesting and relaxing. Sound is great though gain seems a little bit over the top for this style. Phrasing is interesting and you keep the attention without too much repetition.

It's very nice! smile.gif

I can suggest that you lower down the gain just a bit, and the backing is too quiet. It's all good regarding scale usage, and licks, but I feel there is a lack of structure here. Try to connect those melodies so they have beginning-story-end. Add some call and response too, and insert dynamics (lower down volume on some parts and play it a bit quiet), and it will sound much better already. Keep rocking! smile.gif

Supernice! I think I got this backing track somewhere or a similar one.
Need to try this myself... you got some really nice parts/licks in that long solo.
Well done! Keep it up!
