Thanks Alex. I will post another take at a slower tempo. By twice you mean, do the whole thing again ? I do more for practice but didn't want to elongate in the recording. smile.gif

The noise is not a big deal!
I can suggest to do it even slower so you have a full control over your hands!

Very well done!!! Now can you record the same thing with a metronome only? I think tempo is 90BPM if you can do only metronome and guitar! After I will show the next trick:)

Here it is smile.gif 90bpm seems pretty slow. This one is at 105bpm which seems aligned with the track you recorded.

Awesome!
For the new assignment we will start to get into improvisation a little bit more!
Here is a very cool II - V - I backing track in E minor
http://soundcloud.com/alex-feather-akimov/ii-v-i-jam
The chords are:
Emi7 - A7 - Dmaj7

Over E mi7 chord I want you to play E dorian mode

Over A7
A minor blues pentatonic

Over D major 7 F# minor pentatonic


When you are playing over this chord progression try to be as melodic as possible and create phrases instead just jamming!
Let me know if you have any questions or need help!

Got your message!
You are actually ahead of me and that was the plan! Before we will start I would like to know how do you feel about the backing track I assigned you and if you got a chance to jam over it?
Let me know and we will begin smile.gif

I think the backing track moves pretty fast (chords). I guess it might be helpful to say have longer chords or just one chord to start with? one scale ? and slowly move from there ? I also need to learn how to phrase. I am ready to start from basic or relearn if need be.

Sounds good!
So we have E mi7 for one bar A7 for one bar and D maj7 for two bars
There are 4 counts in each bar! I hope it makes sense! I know at first it's hard to get use to counting but as soon as you will understand it, it will be piece a cake!
If you want I can explain counting in more details! Let me know !
