You did a great job! I love the melodic minor run and when you went to the pentatonic it sounded very cool! Very well done! The only suggestion I have is try not to resolve into unstable tones use them more as passing notes and resolve into chord tones this way you will get your solo to sound more solid!
I will post a new assignment in a few hours! Keep it up!

Ok, I'm starting to get it I think. This is another quick take trying to resolve with the chord tones. Your basically using the tones to bring the solo back to home after introducing the other notes as a different flovour right?

How about some blues phrasing and pentatonic work ? I've done a lot of theory lately so maybe something like that before getting back to theory. When we get back to theory I'd like to learn how to construct good chord progressions using alternate chords. I seem to have learnt the chords but still not how to properly apply them.

I have a perfect lesson for you!

What do you mean by alternate chords? Chords with extensions?

Been checking the lesson out, there's some licks in there that I'll steal for sure. wink.gif But I was hoping for something with some more complex bends and slide work. Yeah I mean chords with extensions, I've learnt all the chords #9 and 5ths, diminished and so on but don't really know how to apply them without it sounding wrong. I've just bought a book called chord chemistry by Ted Greene which is helping but I was wondering how you apply them to your own compositions.

Ok so how about we will start working on composition so you can start using it in practice?
Let me know if you are interested and we can start! smile.gif

Let's figure out the style, tempo and a form first!

I'm between two styles for the composition. Either a slow brooding piece using hybrid picking that builds up in tension or maybe something bluesy and up tempo that's not your avarage I, IV, V blues progression. What do you think?

I think let's start with a slow piece! It sounds very interesting and I think we will have more room for development! smile.gif

Beautiful chord progression! I love it!
Now let's add some drums to it!
What software do you have to program drums?

I don't have any drum software. I tried to download md drummer but I can't seem to get it. Do you have any suggestions on which one to get?

I would suggest EZ drummer it is a very good and easy to use software! If you don't have it yet I can program drums for you just let me know what the tempo is and I will do it! smile.gif

Going to get EZ drummer I think, but what else do I need because at the moment I'm basically just plugging my guitar into the mic input on my computer what do I need to get a decent recording set up for my computer. I record with reaper so that ok but I think I need a better quality of gear with the software, what do you think?
I'll figure the tempo for you on that progression if you can help with the drums because basically I have no idea how to lay down drum tracks, so maybe we'll change the focus of the mentoring include recording and arrainging if that's ok?

If you want you can get some DAW I would suggest apogee they are really good and fairly inexpensive!
What is your budget?
I will lay down the track for you and we can start working on arranging tracks it will be my pleasure to help you out! smile.gif
Figure out the tempo and upload guitar only track!
