The GMC United Video Collab

We have decided to start a new collab which pays tribute to us, students and instructors - the GMC Community! As usual, Cosmin, Darius and Gabriel are the hosts and guides, so if in any way along the take submission period you feel stuck, please post your feedback in this thread or send us a PM!

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

This collab is based on Gabriel's Snow Patrol Lesson:
Attached File  Backing_Track.wav ( 7.27MB ) Number of downloads: 1474

Tempo : 100 BPM
Key : A Major
-------------------------------------------

In case anybody is wondering how to enter this collaboration:

1. Download the backing track and open it in your recording software
2. 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).
3. Render one track containing your recording only - 16 bit wave file 44,1 kHz
4. Render one track containing both solo and backing track in an .mp3 format
5. Send us your video (preferably in .mp4 format)

As before, 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.

Needless to say smile.gif 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!

Bringing your contribution to this track and tribute to the GMC community is what really matters!

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

As in the previous collabs, we want this one 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 others! No explicit need to play over the full backing track length, pick any amount of bars you feel most comfortable playing over.

It is always better to come up with something short but catchy or memorable!

Check out these lessons for inspiration:

Major scale phrasing ideas :

Acoustic Solo C Major Lesson

C Major Phrasing

Scales you could use:

A Ionian



A Major Pentatonic



Remember - the only thing we require is that you participate and be yourself - there are no rules, and no limits!
---------------------------------------------------------------------------------
Deadline: 28th of February

Participants: Cosmin Lupu, Darius Wave, Gabriel Leopardi, Taka Perry, Monica Gheorghevici, bleez, liveOASISforever, Ulrik, Todd Simpson, Mertay, Doug Lane, SlowFingaX, huargo, wollace03, tflava, Beat Zbinden, jstcrsn, Mertay, Sensible Jones, Palacios, DeGroot, Nava, wrk, WeePee, mroberts70, gregc1, Procyon

Easy, man, you just have to find the relative minor of A major. Count three notes down the scale: A, G#, F#.
So, A major and F# minor have the same notes, so you should be able over it in F# minor pentatonic. smile.gif

I really want to take part in these collaborations. I just need to get my confidence up. There is always something that puts me off getting involved whether it be my timing issues, theory knowledge, guitar tone, creating something good to play and recording. I always question what I am doing and make a excuse.I need to man up laugh.gif

smile.gif This should be an interesting ear training exercise - why not start easy - on one string at a time - find the notes of the A major scale:

A B C# D E F# G# A right? And don't think in shapes smile.gif Try to sing a simple melody in the beginning - in your head - and then apply it on the guitar.

What say you?

I remember my old Physics professor in highschool - she had a very good saying. Stop thinking about it and get to DOING it smile.gif What do you have to lose? I think you only have something to win wink.gif Deal?

I'm also in! This track is simple and bright enough sounding that I think I will go for a more electronic and ambient approach with this one!

My video chat today focused on licks that would work with this backing. In case anybody wants to grab some examples or possible bits of chops to get going, here is the link to what we worked on smile.gif Sometimes just getting started on a solo can be the hardest part.

Bleez - don't worry man - as You already had been said - You can use relative minor scale. all notes from F# minor should work in A-major. Even most of the licks - they will just sound - more happy smile.gif))


Like You See - You will get some support for collaboration in our video chats smile.gif

Sounds fun wink.gif

I'm in (even some short part), because there's enough time to learn something more and this kind of things motivates even more wink.gif

I think that february is going to be great month for me and of course all of you guys and girls..maybe first REC and Collab for me....

Some problems with my PC lately, but I'm here and again and I think those windows issues are solved now (tons of bluescreens) wacko.gif maybe too many things at the same time...new drivers...softwares and testing ..how to make...video..audio...and crash bom bom smile.gif but installed everything from the beginning and it's alive again...(it wasn't so easy ....but after some days...). It's always so "fun" to reboot after reboot and thinking... maybe next one is last one....or next one and then everything is ok.... ohmy.gif

Back to this collab...I'm in at least with some short part...maybe some memorable part...amazing...it's possible with so many ways
laugh.gif but most important..it's fun and I'm going to enjoy for the process to find some sounds with my fingers on fretboard for this collab smile.gif (with some Gab's help...it's easier)

Of course everyone can give some nice tips for this one and Cosmin already gave good tips..thanks!

We're gonna ROCK!!! biggrin.gif

I already made my first test rec for this collab and I'm happy to get some honest feedback about it smile.gif
Tell anything you think about the sound, idea and everything. I'm a beginner, so I have many technical and speed limits for playing smile.gif
I'm in like I said before smile.gif this is my first collab so I have to ask few things..can I make a few different parts for same collab or just only one?
Still learning so many things at the same time with guitar training...recording (audio and video)...editing.. and try to find out some good sounds from my Boss GT-10..so many buttons and controllers.
Any tips and feedbacks are good for me cool.gif

Good take! you can make some different parts for the collab if you want, or only one, maybe in the video edit don't appears all your take for editing reasons but let us listen to all your creativity if you want.
I remember my fights with imovie and still working in the tone and sound. Amazing trip!! i'll post my take soon!..............................................................

Ok! my take is here!
i use my brand new copy of scuffhamamps for a fast and simple records.
i hope you like.
