> IS THAT YOUR MAMA?

Nope didn't think so either. We all know parents don't get this.

I can show you how to be the virtuoso your folks could only dream about, but I first need your help:

* Pm me and I will show you where to start. I am online every day and I will help you out directly!

* Join my mentoring program. I will customize your learning experience in a way you haven't experienced before. We will have regular contact so that you can remain inspired every day and eventually reach a new level.

* Join my next video chat! GMC startpage holds a video chat schedule. We always cover a lot of ground and have fun. Remember that you don't need any previous knowledge, and you can be passive in the chat.

* Jam with me - you will find active collabs here.

* Post a topic on this board, guitar related or not - doesn't matter! You will find that chatting with instructors boosts your motivation to practice.

* You haven't missed my latest video lessons, have you?

* Oh and did you know that to become a killer guitarist you just need to focus on one thing? Everything
else is secondary. Pm me and I will explain.

This track is surely going to take your mind back to those weird animated films made in the 70s - think 'Lord of the Rings' animation they made back in those days and you will most surely know what I am talking about smile.gif

Now, grab yer acoustic guitars and come up with nice melodies over these two chords we are having, as this is the focus of this collab - create themes and melodies which will enchant the listener!

Needless to say - you should use acoustic guitars or a clean tone tongue.gif

Let's check the specs first:

Time signature: 6/8

Tempo: 120 BPM

Chords: BbM7 D5

Suggested scale: D minor

Material format: .mp3 track containing both backing and solo and .wav track containing just the solo

Deadline: July 26th



Can't wait to hear your melodic takes!

Cosmin

Hello Cosmin biggrin.gif

I think collaborating (ahah) that way is super-enriching for composition skills. I will try to be part of these collabs in the future!
I'll try and make something for this tonight!

It's almost done, all hardware sorted and Win 7 loaded, just need to re-load all my other softwares that I had and it should be all good!
I've resurrected my old Dell until then so I can now record again on that!

That's great news mate - talking about gear - I got a new audio interface from my band mates and I will start using it on Tuesday - recording the new GMC lesson and some Pantera tunes with it, so I could make up a little review as well biggrin.gif

So, my dear friends - here's the final mix!

Thanks to everyone that participated - DeGroot, Quantum and Taka!

In the order of appearance:

Me - thought I should start with an open string based melodic theme and finish using the minor pentatonic and minor blues scale for a more dynamic entrance - combining 16th notes with sextuplets.

DeGroot - great playing man! Nothing to add here - bright tone and tasty phrasing!

Quantum - Dian, have you by any chance recorded using a nylon string guitar? I can feel such a vibe and I must say I like it, the only thing that you could take care of would be the dynamics - it's a bit static.

Taka - same here man - long notes are very good and I thought your take made a good ending, but try to bring a little bit more diversity in the playing for the sake of having a more dynamic phrasing.

Thanks again guys and stay tuned for the next one biggrin.gif

I am thinking about what we could do wink.gif
