Hi Alex.... No real progress here mate.... I cant click with the backing... I have a few melodies but nothing decent and it's been ages. ???? mellow.gif

How about we change the backing than? It is not a big deal I want you to have fun! not a struggle!
Let me know what style would you like and I will find something for you smile.gif

Thanks, I appreciate your attitude. Well, my main goal is to be a really solid rock guitarist, and I also love how expressive the blues are.
So anything rock or blues would be great.

I just couldn't connect with the other backing. If u know what I mean. cool.gif

Thanks for your time

Ok Alex, I am back from a lil holiday and ready to get into this backing. So the backing is a standard 12 bar blues in A min. Which would then make the chords all min7 right?

Amin7
Dmin7
Emin7

??

And can you help me learn some rock licks? Perhaps if you can post a lick, i will work on it and post my take of the lick?

Thanks Mate smile.gif

Hey Alex, How are you Mate? Very Busy Lately, so this take is a bit overdue but here is my first solo with your Rock Shuffle backing..... It's short and sweet.... I can build on the ideas and melodies after hearing you feedback.

Thankyou cool.gif

Hello! smile.gif
So I came up with an idea I think what we can work on is to add more licks into your library! It will give you more ideas and you will be able to get new phrasings into your playing!

Hi Alex, Happy New Year mate. tongue.gif
It has been a while since I have been around, as stated above in my last post I had to move interstate, finally set up now and ready to get into it.
Now, I haven't been able to play for about 6 weeks, so I am very rusty, and over the next few days I will just be trying to get my fingers back into shape. I will look into the last task you posted for me, about learning new licks, do you have that post in guitar pro format?

Thanks again, and I hope you had a good Christmas and New Year mate,

Cheers cool.gif
