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...


It is all good take your time! smile.gif And stay cool!
Live I am using Fender and Ugly 18 Fractal is only for recording
It is gonna work great but with my traveling everything is getting messed up very fast so I am too scared to brake it!
Looking forward to hear your solo! smile.gif

hi!
I was just tryoing out your licks but I cannot open the guitar pro file...without the puitar pro file it is very hard to learn the licks cause the written tabs don´t show the length of the notes....
it would also help if there is a recorded version of the licks then I can hear how they sound...

thanx in advance..

by the way..great backing track!

hi!

I worked on your licks...there are some pretty cool licks there..

here is my first take.. I am not so proud of the beginning and I think it gets better after the first 30 sec. or so.

it was not so easy cause this is not the kind of music I am used to but I like jamming overthis track very much...

Sounds beautiful! Some licks were a little bit off but the whole idea is great! I would suggest using Q&A technique at the start this way your solo will build up nice and smooth! I like what you did already just a few tweaks and it will be perfect! smile.gif

one question:

the progression is in Eminor... and you just put in some cromtic notes when you created the licks?

The chromatic trick is very simple all you have to do is fill out the gaps in between with passing tones as long as you are resolving into a chord tone it will sound good! I would suggest to play a little less in the beginning and try to develop your solo also I was missing dynamic in the beginning! This simple tricks will really help you develop a very solid solo!
I like your playing a lot just some polishing and you will do great! smile.gif

so..here´s another take...
i have very limited time to practice right now but I really try to find at least one hour every second day...

but I really tried to bring in some q&a and some dynamics...not sure if that worked...

and you just told us (in the chat) about the tonal soloing system which I am really interested in...

I have prepared a very cool exercise for you it is based on II - V - I progression
Chords are" Emi7 - A7 - Dmaj7 this exercise includes all chord tones
By doing it you will develop your technique and will learn all chord tones that you can use over any II - V - I progression!
Also it will make your brain to think in a different direction and will give you more freedom when you are playing!
Here it is!

hi alex!

I justed wanted to tell you that due to health issues and especially due to my work agenda for the autumn month I have close to zero time for practicing. The only time I can pick up the guitar is when I try to be at the band rehearsals....

But, after christmas everything will get better and then I will start practising again and will work on the chord tone assignment....
Can´t wait to work on my playing again!!

Any news about your new job??

hi alex!

back again with a little more practicing time. feels great!!!
I started to memorize the notes of the chord tone exercise and can play them to the backing very slowely...should I go on praticing until I bring them up to some speed?
because right now I really have to concentrate while playing them-......

any news about your new job?
