Well thank you Alex,
Coming from you it's really encouraging.
Maybe I'll try part II later on.

Thanks

Hi Alex,
Congratulation on your video again- I really like it. It is so original! Really ground breaking! Cool.
Nowadays, I am trying to get back into my own groove.
Got myself a new guitar - An Ibanez AF105 NT - Niiiice!
I think it will be cool for backing.
Changed the bridge for a rosewood to get a richer tone. Did the trick.
Attached is a quick Blues I recorded today.
I tried to keep it dry on the backing to create a cozy dimension.
Now I have to get back on the Modes and get out of my traditional scales. (Got your point on last few posts!)
Backing is a classic I think.

Would appreciate your comments.

Tried something - Not too fast for now. Defining a drum track was not obvious. I'll have to develop my skills in that area for sure.
Only gave it a little time. I am sure I could be more creative but I thought the idea was to get started on this new track for now.
Two tracks attached - one Backing only, the other with a quick fill in for soloing. (To be worked on for sure)
Any how, as usual, I would appreciate your comments.
Many thanks.

Did another cut with a better drum track.
This might be more interesting.
Boogie style.
Will need to work on the lead to get out of the usual.
Thanks for your comments.

Decided to dust off the Bass tonight and added one track to it!
This is getting fun but I need to push up the lead definitively.
See 2nd cut.

Sorry, couldn't sleep with this lead that was bogging me.
Had to redo it but that's it for to night.
Thanks for listening.

Sounds amazing!!!! Very fat and nice sound!
So how about we will do jam back and forth over your track?
What is the chord progression?

Blues or Boogie shuffle
I - IV - V - VI
I play E5 - A5 - B9 - C9

(E5 and A5 are played in open position with bass line progression on E string, same on A5 with progression on A string)
Rhythm is a steady roll

Thanks smile.gif

Great! Allow me a few hours to create a backing track for it so we can start jamming over this chord progression! smile.gif
I am glad you are using 5 chords because it is limitless and we can try a lot of different things over it!

Anything wrong with my backing? see post 108 above?
Got a track from EZdrummer, added my rhythm and created a bass line with the Bass.

Sorry I should have included a backing track that loops more easily.
I think this one will likely be better for looping in the DAW.
Still learning I guess.

Awesome I did my take!
Attached File  Little_boogie.mp3 ( 1.48MB ) Number of downloads: 33

For the solo I have used 3 different pentatonic combinations!
I played different pentatonics over each chord
Over E5 I got E minor pentatonic in this position:


Over A5 A minor


Over B5 B minor


Over C5 I used G minor pentatonic close to E minor shape


If you can record your take using the same shapes would be awesome! wink.gif

Oh my...
Did my take but I am not really satisfied with my backing.
There is a poor transition and that makes things difficult for adding a lead part when looping.
Anyhow, I guess this is something I have to learn to do.
I loved your lead - it was really inspiring (although challenging to follow!!)
Now I have to think about getting more creative if you see what I mean.
I would appreciate your comments.

Many thanks Alex.

You did a great job! I would suggest adding more drive to your sound or bring it a little bit up! smile.gif
Also let's try to start combining two pentatonics
We will do E minor and B minor pentatonics
That's what we will get:
E minor in this position


And B minor in this position


Try to combine them together and create licks using both shapes
for example:
This is a combination of all 2 pentatonics
It's almost a scale but a little bit different

Try it out and let me know how it feels! smile.gif

Great!
Attached is a new cut wit a little more drive for the AF105NT
I like the idea of combining two scales like you suggest.
Working on it Master!
