Hello guys! Welcome to my new audio collab inspired by Surf Rock bands!

The backing track is in the key of A minor, so you can use A minor aeolian and A pentatonic minor scales. However there are some sections where you have to pay attention.

This is the chord progression:

Verse:
Am - G - Am - G - Am - G - F - E

Chorus
F - Fm - C - G/B - Am
F - Fm - C - G/B - Am - G E

Every time that E major or F minor appears you have to use A harmonic minor scale, (or avoid the note G from the A minor scale) because these chords include the note G# which is the seventh major of A.

Tempo: 190 bpm
Deadline: 4th September (14 days)

Attached File  Surf_Rock_Collab.mp3 ( 1.04MB ) Number of downloads: 212

That's a great song! I can hear a first bass riff similar to one that composed the band The Strokes...

Excellent!! You have to post two files, one with the backing and the other only with your guitar. If you use soundcloud, please remember to allow the downloads. wink.gif

Hi guys! This is the final mix anc comments for this collab! Thanks to the guys tha joined this one! It’s been funny to mix it and heard the whole thing.

Gitarrero:
Hi German Guy!  As I have been saying in your previous collab participations, I think that you have evolved a lot as a solo composer. This take sounds very in style, not only the tone, also the melodies and phrases that you created. The whole thing evolves cool with the backing. The second part (the chorus) could be played more secure to sound better but it’s ok. Thanks for joining mate!

Sensible Jones:
Hi mate! I really enjoyed what you recorded in this solo. Your solo composition sounds like something composed by one of the bands that inspired the backing track. The guitar sounds a bit out of tune, but maybe it’s the modulation fx that you added. You also have to be carefull with the wav level, because this one is a bit saturated. (Clipped). By the way you did a great job with the solo, thanks for joining!

Vonhotch:
Well mate, we have been working on this one at Gab’s Army, not only the solo, also the tone and I think that the finaly result is very positive. Your guitar playing, the composition and the tone sound perfect over the backing. All I can say is congrats for your great job!

Thanks Gab!
That's the problem with old guitars, you tune them up and next minute they drop out again! I swear it was in tune when I hit the Record button on that take!! biggrin.gif (Possibly the Trem effect makes it sound worse?)
I will keep an eye on that, thanks for the feedback mate!
I enjoyed this one, great backing track!
