Thanks rolleyes.gif
I think I am starting to get it. Adding those responses (Blues inspiration from the cotton fields) creates a new dimension.
I still think I should add more silence in this last take.
Still timing issues. Got to work on this.
Hope I understood the call-response technique.
Thank you Master.

You did a great job! Very melodic and smart playing! I like it a lot!
Let's start a new approach:) So I have recorded 8 bars of the solo and would like you to continue it for the next 8 bars!
http://soundcloud.com/alex-feather-akimov/jpbluestring
I used exactly the same scales I gave you! Try to be melodic and use my idea as a guidance!
When you are done please mix your solo into the track after mine and leave the rest without lead so I can record next 8 bars!
Let me know if you have any questions!

Cool!
Responding to a Master is not something I do often.
I think I hear your call! smile.gif
Still timing issues - Sorry

You did a very good job! I would suggest to keep it less busy on the second half! First 4 bars were awesome! I heard the melody and idea try to make the second part the same way! Maybe play the answer octave higher?

Hi Alex,
Thanks for your comments. I'll give it a try.
BTW I don't understand what happened with my downloads from SoundCloud.
It seems that my last download replaced the version in my last 3-4 postings with the last one for the 8-bar exercise ??
I can't find a way to edit each post with their original versions.
Any idea what might have happened?

Here is a new attempt going from cage 1 in 5th position to 10th and up.
Timing is getting a little better. cool.gif

Could'nt help it when I heard it from Zoom's page. Cool groove!
I tried to incorporate a few silences and be more in time to stay in the spirit of your last comments. smile.gif

Hehe! If you like this track better we can start using it:)
You did a very nice job! Reminded me of Santana! Sound and phrasing! Nice work!

Hi Alex,

Feel more comfortable adding those silences now.
It really helps building confidence as you have a little bit more time to breath and think about the next phrase.
Really good advice. Thanks a lot.
Hope you like this take. smile.gif

Beautiful take!
I have another suggestion try to develop your solo a little bit more and use different octaves! The beginning was great and it sounded very very good I think adding higher range will make it even more beautiful!
Keep it up you are doing fantastic!

Hi Alex,
I was out of the circuit for a couple of days (extra work-time this week)
Anyhow, back to serious stuff now over the week-end. This backtrak is very interesting indeed!
Anxious to hear what could follow. I think I understand what you mean by "working more on the soloing"
I have a tendency to go back in the same path too easily. I need to explore new territories I guess.
Thanks for your help as always.

PS: While awaiting to get back on Expression 5 here is a take I could not resist from a backing track from Slavenko's page. I feel the progress. Thanks Alex I think your good advices are paying off. Ooooo! smile.gif

Hum! I normally copy the link an insert it as a Soundcloud clip.
I can see that by putting my mouse over it it offers me the option to download once it saved on GMC site.
Am I missing something??

Sorry about that.

Here's another trial.

It's still not downloadable! You have to change it in the song settings or reupload it and select download option on the upload page!

I think I found the reason why. Had to click on "downloadable" option indeed. (Don't know why the option was changed on this one??) Anyhow, hope it works now.

Thanks

Alex, I think I am lost in confusion with Soundcloud. My save seem to always link to my latest downoald on Soundcloud which may not be related to this tread. (i.e. collab confused with this tread.)

Here is my latest cut for Expression 6.

Hoping it gets to you correctly this time! (NB: I'm using "Copy link location from Soundclourd??)
