Are you ready to choose your side?

The light side: During the day, you can enjoy the light and warmth of the sun, by playing smooth melodic Ionian licks
The dark side: At night, the A harmonic minor licks bring in the tension, and sends a shiver down your spine as darkness creeps in


With the success of the 'League of Extraordinary Axemen' collab, we decided to come up with another joint effort!
Me, Gabe and Darius will join forces and guide you in the 'Day and Night' video collab.

---------------------------------------------------------------------------------
BACKING TRACK

We are going to use the backing track from Darius' lesson - Beginner Soloing 1

1 - use this backing if you want to be on The light side: Attached File  day_backing.mp3 ( 1.22MB ) Number of downloads: 1449

2 - use this backing if you want to be on The dark side: Attached File  night_backing.mp3 ( 1.27MB ) Number of downloads: 1519


Tempo : 120 BPM
Key : C major
Backing track progression :

Day : 4/4 ||: C | C | Am | Am | F | F | Gsus4 | G :||

Night: 4/4 ||: Am | Am | F | F | Dm | Dm | Esus4add6 | E :||

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

How to enter this collaboration?

1. Download the backing track and open it in your recording software
2. Wear a light colored t-shirt if you chose The Light side or a dark colored t-shirt if you chose The Dark Side
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)

You can 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.

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

When attaching/sending the collab files, please include the source file of the video as well.

As with the previous 'The League of Extraordinary Axemen' Collab, 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 if you feel like it!

---------------------------------------------------------------------------------
Collab tips :

We want this collab to be as strong as possible, as this will give your playing and progress maximum exposure. So here's what we suggest:

Making short but polished and detailed lines will always give you better results. If you focus on a short part of the backing track, then you will most likely amaze yourself and the other guys! No explicit need to solo over the full backing track length, pick any amount of bars you feel most comfortable soloing over.

We have thought about a few lessons and tips which can be inspiring for understanding the note choices and phrasing that you can use:

Beginner Soloing 1 - Darius's lesson based on this backin track, from whhich you can draw direct ideas
Harmonic Minor Scales For Guitar - The Professor's Theory notes on the Harmonic Minor mode
Harmonic Minor For Beginners Lesson - A video lesson containing harmonic minor phrasing ideas
C Major Rock Solo Lesson - A lesson featuring C major oriented ideas
Pop Rock Solo Lesson - Lesson featuring A minor (C major oriented ideas)
The Tasty Etude Lesson - Lesson featuring more beginner friendly C major based ideas
Instrumental Rock V Lesson - you could re-think some of the licks in this lesson at a slower tempo and adapt them to the collab backing

Remember - the only thing we require is that you participate and be yourself - there are no rules, and no limits!

---------------------------------------------------------------------------------
Deadline : November 30th

Participants : Cosmin Lupu, Darius Wave, Gabriel Leopardi, Monica Gheorghevici, bleez, gregc1, Caelumamittendum, K1R, Sensible Jones, coffeeman, superize, thefireball, Todd Simpson, Doug Lane, wollace03, Taka Perry, DeGroot, korblitz, Blister, HungryForHeaven, Dieterle, Renan, K1R, tonyk, Grace, mroberts70, ElHombre, pavelducati

I'll jump on the light side. My videos always have a blinding sun over my shoulder anyway so it should work nicely.

You can choose both, but that would mean that you need to wear two t shirts - a white one and a black one biggrin.gif

I may want both as well smile.gif There's a bad side in each of us - the good one would never exist without it smile.gif

Good thinking with bad and good sides wink.gif
I thought to make some difference between sadness with very emotional playing and for the day part something to create a mood of happiness wink.gif
So, I decide last night after I found the basic idea for night backing to choose the both sides. Of course I will make 2 different video with 2 different colours of t shirts biggrin.gif
