Hey Guys,

If you haven't known already, there is a competition going around hosted by David Wallimann. Since I am trying to get into composition/improvisation, I thought I would try. Here is what I have come up with. Please be generous and if you like it please give thumbs up in the video. smile.gif

Thank you so much!
Chandra

Nice phrasing man! Your tone is very warm and nice to hear. The melodies are fresh and tasty, you did a great job.
All the best! wink.gif

Great job!!


My only suggestions (since you asked...)

-Be aware of the sustain/timing of the hammer on note. I think you could hit it just a bit harder/cleaner for slightly more sustain, and also wait just a bit longer to pull off of the note. I think it was just slightly off the beat/premature.

-@ about 0:55 you take a very pentatonic ascending pattern. Perhaps explore just 1 diff note (I don't have my guitar out, but maybe look into minor pentatonic add6 scale?) to "spice it up"!!

Again, it really is an awesome, clean take, with great melodic phrasing! Good luck! Walliman is the man!

Chandra I think this is very, very good ! Lots of unexpected but brilliant note choices. It wasn't predictable at all and kept me interested as a listener smile.gif

I thought that note near the end was wrong but then you played it again and I noticed the backing chord underneath and realised ' Oh, it's ok.. it's meant to be there ! ' wink.gif

Ah, Thank you Ben. I always had this "boring 8ths, up and down" on my solos and still have. I am encouraged with that comment. Initially, it began by singing rather than just grabbing the guitar. One lick per bar did the trick. I still feel some sections could be better. The more time you spent, more boring it starts to sound, you know. smile.gif I am exploring...

Cool, Cosmin will be pleased to hear about you using a singing approach - it clearly worked ! smile.gif
