Hi guys - welcome to my new video collab !

Whitesnake Christmas !


Attached Image


Attached File  Whitesnake_Xmas.mp3 ( 1.29MB ) Number of downloads: 569


I've concocted a suitably slushy ballad for you, perfect for those big hair and pointy guitar moments. Instead of buying a bottle of wine and romancing your other half this festive season, why not submit a take to this instead ? It might have the same desired effect !

The overall key is E. Here are the chords that can be found in the backing.

Attached Image

I've joined the A5 rhythm guitar with the clean arppegios to form the Asus2/11+ chord but you can treat this is an A5 or A.

The E Major scale will work over the whole progression so if you want to, you can find the scale and use it as your base to compose your melodies. If you want to get a bit more technical you can approach each chord as a new movement and look at the notes found within that chord. You can pick out strong tones like the root, 3rd, 5th, 7th. You can use both approaches. Or you could even take a more modal approach. If you play the E Major scale but start it from the root note of another chord in the sequence, you will find the appropriate mode for that chord.For example, if you played through the scale of E Major but you started from A, you would be playing A Lydian.

Another effective way to handle major chords is to use the Major Pentatanic scale over the major chords like E and A.

For the F#Minor chord, you could use the F#Minor pentatonic but don't make the mistake of using the F#Minor scale, the F#Dorian mode would be better because the major 6th is a much better fit over this chord progression than the minor 6th. The G#m/5+ is an interesting chord. I'm sure you'll recognise the sound of this type of chord. To me, they're like halfway chords. They provide a bridge between one chord to another but they sound major overall. How do you approach a chord like this ? The root note is G# but the rest of the chord is basically E. So you can treat this chord the same way you would treat E. E Major scale or E Major Pentatonic.

Tempo is 92bpm.

I've let the end fade out.. my idea is that you will end your solo on a satisfactory note that can fade out and pave the way for the next solo.

As I've said, this is a VIDEO collab so I know there will be a VERY excited German & Finn right now.

-I'll need a video file (with audio if possible) I can download these straight from Youtube smile.gif
-an isolated wav or mp3 of your solo.

Ok, let's pretend it's 1987, it's coming up to Xmas.. the fire is roaring in the grate, it's snowing outside. You've just had a romantic meal and some wine. Now you pick up your guitar... what do you play ? cool.gif

Deadline is Saturday 21st December !

COUNT ME IN! I've been thirsting for another one of these since Day and night started!
I have made an arrangement of the song is guitar pro 5.
I'll be notating my entry for the reference of anyone who is interested in learning any of the licks I come up with. If anyone wants, I will transcribe your takes as well!

The easiest part about all this was having the base information already laid out; I just used the chord tool to set up the chords in a seperate track to drone out at 92 BPM and I matched it with the backing track. after that, I just took a very similar drum line from ACDC and tweaked it so it was the same. the rest is pretty simply structured, so I was able to figure those parts out on my guitar a just a few minutes.

I am in! I've been working on what to play, but now I just need to record it.

I really dig the backing track!

PS - I've read "Zen Guitar" per you recommendation Ben, and it's great.
