Todd here smile.gif Per suggestions from GITARRERO and COSMIN, This is going to be a "Soundtrack Collab" as it's based on a track that I"m working on for a Soundtrack! I'm going to submit the completed work with Solos to the director of the documentary for his consideration for inclusion in the final edit. Everyone will get full credit of course!! The project is from director John Mahoney and is called INSPIRATION NOW which is the title of his recent book. Here is the backing track on soundcloud.

https://soundcloud.com/techniqueswithtodd/soundtrack-work-inspiration

This is going to be an AUDIO COLLAB so that folks without cameras/video can still be involved. So here are the details.

DELIVERABLES
1.)Backing track with Solo
2.)Solo without backing track
3.)DUE DATE March 15, 2013.

This track is WAAAAYYY outside of what I normally write so the solo can be as bizarre as you like, or as traditional, all bets are off so go nuts smile.gif

Some very cool licks!! I think I should have shared the KEY of the song now that I think about it.

The song is in

A FLAT MINOR

So A pentatonic and A Minor should work well. I think you may be playing in A so everything is a tad off key. I like the licks, it's just that they are all out of pitch a bit. I think I can try to adjust this in my DAW though. However, if you want to re record in A Flat, please feel free smile.gif Either way will work. Good job on putting together the solo!!

Some fine licks smile.gif Well played! However, It sounds like you are still playing in A? The backing is in G SHARP so you are one half step out of key I think.

Start with your first finger on the fourth fret and the Pentatonic scale should work from there. Don't worry about playing fast, focus on vibrato and holding notes longer. Since the backing is very electronic, go for a slow vibe maybe to balance it. I hate to have you keep re doing this. I'm sure it will be worth it!

Here is a tablature of G Sharp Pentatonic Minor for reference.

Wow this sounds like a cool little project! Hey Todd can you give us any information as what the documentary is about to perhaps inspire a fitting mood or theme for what we may come up with? Is it simply about inspiration?

It's a documentary about the "Making of" a book called "Inspiration Now" which is an Art Book by a pal of mine named John Mahoney. He does character design and such. If you saw the movie MIMIC you've seen his work as he designed the big walking bug smile.gif Here is a link to the facebook page for the book.
