> IS THAT YOUR MAMA?

Nope didn't think so either. We all know parents don't get this.

I can show you how to be the virtuoso your folks could only dream about, but I first need your help:

* Pm me and I will show you where to start. I am online every day and I will help you out directly!

* Join my mentoring program. I will customize your learning experience in a way you haven't experienced before. We will have regular contact so that you can remain inspired every day and eventually reach a new level.

* Join my next video chat! GMC startpage holds a video chat schedule. We always cover a lot of ground and have fun. Remember that you don't need any previous knowledge, and you can be passive in the chat.

* Jam with me - you will find active collabs here.

* Post a topic on this board, guitar related or not - doesn't matter! You will find that chatting with instructors boosts your motivation to practice.

* You haven't missed my latest video lessons, have you?

* Oh and did you know that to become a killer guitarist you just need to focus on one thing? Everything
else is secondary. Pm me and I will explain.

Hey guys!


Check this out smile.gif me and my drummer decided to work something smooth for you guys, so we started out like this:



After that, I recorded the bass and the guitars and voila! The track for the new collab is done! We would be very honored to jam with you, so go ahead and send your takes! biggrin.gif

In order to make this work out as a super funky smooth jam, I need the following things from you guys:

1) Video files (. AVI format)
2) Audio files - one without the backing and one with the backing (. WAV format)
3) I would suggest using clean or just a little bit crunched tones for the solos...in order to make it smooth, right? biggrin.gif
4) This collab is aiming to develop your phrasing and expression skills so throw in bends, vibrato and little melodies as often as you can!
5) The deadline is October, the 31'st!

The progression is:

Dm7 Em7 Dm7 Em7 Dm7 Em7 FM7 Em7

G7sus4 Dm7/9 Bmadd9 Am7

Dm7 Em7 Dm7 Em7 Dm7 Em7 FM7 Em7 x 2

You are free to use the A minor scale and the A minor pentatonic scale, as well as playing around with the idea of highlighting notes belonging to the Dorian (over Dm7), Phrygian (over Em7), Mixolydian (over G7sus4), Lydian (over FM7) and even Locrian (over Badd9) modes.

Another suggestion would be to play Dorian mode notes over the whole progression starting from Dm7 as it highlights this particular mode very well! I'll throw in ideas as we go along so that we may have as many weapons at our disposal as possible wink.gif

The tempo is 92 or 93 BPM, I think and the tuning is standard!

Let's see how smooth you guys can get! biggrin.gif

Cosmin

Just to clarify...post video take in this forum and share the audio, with something called Raipshare?
And I assume you want 1 x audio with backing and 1 x audio guitar only?

Cheers

Hey everyone! You can download this little GP file with some lick suggestions for the Smooth Collab! Give them a try and develop them in any direction you wish - they have been discussed a couple of v-chat sessions ago, so the guys who attended are a bit familiar with them I think biggrin.gif

Please do ask anything which may seem uncertain!
