Oh, I am stupid!
of course, G min is the minor that belongs to Bb (the VI like A minor to C)

now I get it!!!
I should have known this on my own.... dry.gif

You are not stupid! It is a common mistake!! I chose those chords on purpose to trick you a little bit! smile.gif
I am looking forward to hear your take! Let me know if you need help with anything!

Hi!
After jamming for a few times I hit the record button to record a solo using the two boxes of the Gm pentatonic...and here is my take:

Attached File  Chord_Impro_Gm.mp3 ( 1.71MB ) Number of downloads: 67


I somehow found it easier to solo with the Gm than with the Dm... I think it was somehow easier to sound melodic in Gm.....

You did a great job!! I like your take! Nice melodies and nice playing!
I would suggest to have more space between phrases and also use question and answer technique!
Here is an new challenge! smile.gif

Here is the chord progression from last assignment!
Dmi - Bb - Gmi - F

I would like you to play different pentatonics over each chord!
D minor over Dmi and F



G minor over Bb and Gmi


Try it out! And I will join you for the next take! smile.gif
Let me know if you have any questions or need help with anything!

great!

I really like your tasks and I start to think about what to play about what progressions and - as a very important thing I think - try to hear different colours of scales over different chord progressions...

changing the scales during the playing will involve a lot more thinking but I look forward to trying and hearing what it sounds like...

what do you mean by joining me? do you also play a take wiht these scales and the given progression?
would be very cool!

I did my take to give you ideas please continue my solo!

Those are the shapes I would like you to use:

hi!

I was on a business trip so I didn´t have much time for the guitar but here is a take on the solo task....
pretty hard to play after you cause your phrasing is amazing and you can hear how bad mine is...
for the solo: I didn´t think much I just jammed around and hit the record button after some time....

I think you did very well! You had some great moments and I liked your ideas a lot1
A few suggestions:
Turn down gain a little bit so your dynamic will come out!
Also try to have more space between phrases question and answer technique will work perfect for it!
Do you know what Q&A is? If not I will explain it in details!

hi!
the gain setting on this one was not intended... I had the wrong setting when I recorded and couldn´t get the distortion out if the signal (I am very, very bad when it comes to recording techniques). I am absolutely not satisfied with the sound but I didn´t get it right...
I found out was the problem was and my next recording should sound better...

Q&A means, that I play a phrase and then answer with another phrase and so on, am I right?... I have´nt used the Q&A technique in the past..don´t know why but I never really tried it, but I will try to incoorporate it into my next take....

Hi!

Had a little time and started to work on our solo right away... I tried to come up with something that maybe connects a little with what you are playing....still some mistakes but there are parts I really like. And I changed the tone on the guitar recording...

Attached File  Gm_Solo_take2mp.mp3 ( 1.37MB ) Number of downloads: 74


shall I record another take or do we move on to the next task?

one other thing: your solo has three notes (0:07) and one bended note (0:14) that have an absolutely amazing tone to it.... these 4 notes alone are worth listening to the solo endlessly rolleyes.gif ..... how do you get these tones? are you doing some micro bends? sliding? and how do you get the guitar tone you are playing with??

You did a very good job! I think we can move to the next assignment! smile.gif
Those tones are chromatic scales! I will make a new challenge based on it so you can start practicing those scales and will explain you how to add passing tones into your playing!

Look forward to the next assignment!!

To get a guitar tone I am using AXE FX II so it is a modeler
For the album recordings I use amps and mics mixed with AXE FX
What type of software do you use? I might be able to help you out!
I would like you to add a few licks into your library! ::
For the next assignment I would like to change a track!
This is a standard II - V - I progression in E
So the chords are:
Emi7 - A7 - Dmaj7
Attached File  ii_v_i_jam_1.mp3 ( 2.54MB ) Number of downloads: 52


I have 15 licks that you can start adding one by one
and we will continue our jams so also if you can record a take that would be awesome!

Here is the tab:
Title: 15 Fusion Licks
Tempo = 135
Steel Guitar

Legend
L - tied note
x - dead note
h - hammer on/pull off
b - bend
s - slide
~ - vibrato

. - staccato
P - popping (bass)
S - slapping (bass)
+ - tapping
W - wide vibrato

I use the Boss GT-10 and directly plug into the usb port of the my computer...
when I rehearse with my band or play live I plug the Boss GT-10 into a fender fr115 or a marshall power amplifier (only has volume knobs) and a hughs and kettner box...
but I am looking out for something to improve my sound.... not sure yet what could be a good option...I have to change something - maybe another amp will be a good solution..

right now I am on a business trip in greece mad.gif but I will start to work on the new task as soon as I return home next week.. smile.gif smile.gif

Cool you have a nice equipment already! smile.gif
Having a real amp might be problematic because of the microphones and your room
In order to get a good sound from your amp you need to crank it up and have a soundproof room so there is no echoes and any noise it will be very loud and I don't think your neighbors will appreciate it:)
The best way is to use a modular! I have heard that new line 6 POD HD it is not too expensive and you can get a lot of great sounds out of it!
Greece is cool! smile.gif What city? I have been in Greece a few years ago! I like it a lot!
Take your time and I am looking forward to continue working with you!

I was in Thessaloniki and returned ill cause of the aircondition in the hotel..outside temperature was 35 degrees!

So right now I am not able to play the guitar and practice but I hope that I will be up again tomorrow..

what amp do you use when you play live? do you go directly in to the PA with your axe II

I heard the axe ii is abslutely fantastic...but very expensive.. is that right?

hope to upload my first 15 licks solo soon...
