Ladies and gentlemen of GMC, we are proud to present a new style of collab in which not one, but 3 INSTRUCTORS join forces with YOU guys, in order to breathe life TOGETHER into a new concept: 'The League of Extraordinary Axemen Video Collab'!

What's this league thing all about? We are a team of superheroes with special powers of course, which will unite their strengths in order to create an amazing piece of music that will shine with the power of friendship regardless of any boundaries! What sort of special powers? The guitar related ones, of course!!

BACKING TRACK : Attached File  Backing_Track.mp3 ( 4.55MB ) Number of downloads: 1083


All 3 of us will support you along the way and if you feel stuck, please write us in this very thread or send us a PM!

How to enter this collaboration?

1. choose a superhero name for yourself

2. download the backing track and open it in your recording software

3. record your part in the recording software and with your video cam (if you have the possibility to record video).
You can record anything - a short fill part, rhythm based ideas, or a full lead part (solo).

4. Render one track containing your recording only - 16 bit wave file 44,1 kHz

5. Render one track containing both solo and backing track in an .mp3 format

6. Send us your video (preferably in .mp4 format)

Send us the last 3 files mentioned, using a dropbox link, or any other transfer service you are used to, by posting them in this thread or attaching them to a private message.

IMPORTANT: If you can't submit a video, you can send us only the audio files and some pictures with you - it will work out great as well! The more pictures you send, the better will it be for editing in the final video!

You will receive popularity bonus points if you dress up accordingly (it doesn't have to be a complicated suit, but something which illustrates your name and abilities as a superhero) so, you can experiment with a superhero inspired video scenery, dressing up in a costume or having a superhero related clothing detail (or even special weapons?), anything you can think of a guitar superhero would do.

IT DOESN'T MATTER IF YOU ARE A BEGINNER/ ADVANCED/ PRO/ GOD - all styles, approaches and all levels are welcome and you can even play just a short fill part or rhythm based ideas, not just the leads!

IMPORTANT NOTE !!!

Ok guys! Since we want this collab to be as good as possible we had some ideas. One of them is that it would be better to chose one of 2 free slot for the solos - one is when the drums start to play (about 48 seconds) 1:03 - 1:47 and second is just after the "no drums pause" in the middle - starts at 1:48.

Generally we think that making short but polished, descent solo will give better results than some not always confident improvisation over whole track. When You could focus on short part, then You could make miracles with it smile.gif You could start from improvising and try to get some cool ideas from a few different, recorded improvisation tracks. Then You could combine best ideas and try to learn them as a one piece of good solo smile.gif

You can use some arpegios that Gabriel suggested. Just a reminder. We're in the key of B-minor. You can use any shapes for scales related to this one....for example A-mixolydian licks when You hear A-major chord in the backing track. Otherwise You can use basic B minor pentatonicor B aeolian minor scale. At the end of each part there is a 4# (F note added = blue note) but don't be aware of it. You don't have to use this note at those points - it's only an option to expose the "dark atmosphere" of that moment.

Another important note: when attaching/sending the collab files, please include the source file of the video as well.

More tips in progress!

In less words - it is important to participate and be yourself - no rules, no limits!

Tempo : - 140 BPM

Key : B minor

Man that's a nice sounding track, I am probably going to have to play all clean because my kid knocked over my amp and not its not working. I have a nice jazz amp traynor that makes a nice clean sound but that's it. I am definitely going to work on this one!
