Hi Alex

Back again smile.gif I've been working really hard on other lessons and sort avoiding my creative side (putting it in the too hard basket)
but I was asked to play a solo the other week at church and fortunately had a few days to get some ideas together which was good I had to play over about 16bars so I ended up doing a jimi hendrix chordey sort of thing with some arpeggio stuff. Anyway it showed me this is an area which is needing alot of work. Solo's need to have meaning and purpose.
So I'm pushing on again and going to focus more on this.

Quite like my third run through but the fourth is not bad but the ending I'm not sure about?

You did a great job on the solo!!! I like it a lot! SOunded a bit like Santana! wink.gif
Also very happy to hear you did good at the church!!!! I have an idea how about we will use the same chord progression you had to jam over I will create a backing track and we will work on it for a little while!
Let me know!

Cool Alex that would be great. I find alot of progression in church are major progressions and don't fully suit pentatonic rock/blues licks. I tend to play alot of single line stuff but I'm really pretty new to it all. I've played alot of acoustic in church and electric is still a work in progress.

So the progression is G///F///C/////// This is the chorus.

I've added a video of the song. The chorus starts around 3:55 - On the video at the end of the chorus they go into the bridge but we added an add lib/ raving section on the end which is the chorus chords. (hope thats clear)
Note the video is in C# we did it in C

Awesome song choice!!! Give me a few hours and I will create a backing track for you!
Do you want the same tempo as the video?

Sounds great Alex - how many tracks have you got on there and have you doubled any tracks?

I think I can hear keyboard pads, electric guitar maybe with chorus, acoustic,drums and maybe bass.

Ok so I'll see what I can come up with.

Cheers Alex

After alot of uninspired takes I have this offering. The main thing I've gone for I think is dynamic's. I've started quite intense and then mellowed out. I also tried to do more repetitive sort of things.
I tried to play arpeggio stuff but felt it was to boring. I get the feeling for me I just need to play over this sort of track a thousand times and try different things.
Cheers! smile.gif

It5 sounded very good but I could hear that you weren't really sure what to play! Which scale did you use?

Try that:
Over G play E minor pentatonic


Over C play A minor


And over F play D minor pentatonic


Try it out and let me know what you think!
