Hello my friends! biggrin.gif


First I thought that I have to make something very beautiful, but finally I made backing track and then just improvisation and it's more rock than something acoustic or something. This is my version with improvisation, without too much fixes or anything. wink.gif so it's not a perfect, but honest (good way to say...I'm too lazy) wink.gif

No more excuses, so it's here:

Thanks my friend, I'm happy you liked it. This was truly pretty fast version,
everything was ready for under one hour and it's very fast for me. cool.gif

It's GT-10's wah, almost first time I even used it.

That's a very cool tune mate! The backing sounds very groovy and the overall idea sounds very good. I like your phrasing and how you used wah wah on it. I think on the photo, I think that this tune sounds like the ending titles song of a movie that finish with that last moment.. I can imagine it.

What did you feel while you were composing this one? Was it directly connected with the photo?

Thanks Gab and I'm glad you like it. I like it myself too, of course it's even better if many hours fixing, but sometimes it's more funny to make it fast without too much fixing smile.gif After I saw that you said this is the ending song of a movie...that's just what I think about this one, I can also imagine it right now! smile.gif
Maybe I'll even continue this version some day, who knows! smile.gif
At least with this idea something else.

I just looked that picture and trying to find the sound for the moments when those feelings finally erupted. How you feel inside after that very exciting day is finally over.

That's so cool! I was wondering if you would like to work a bit more on the backing and its mix to use it for the Creativity Workout 2... what do you think?

Sounds good to me I'm involved in! wink.gif

What you think we have to do for that backing...right now it's just about a minute long. I can make it longer of course, maybe about 2-2.30 minutes is better? It's ok this way or also good if I'll add some parts to it, what you thinks about it..of course it could take more time then. (2-3 days). Or more work with it and then it's good for Creativity Workout 2 (part III, so not the next one). I happy to use this backing someway..just asking about your opinion. smile.gif

yeah, it could last around two minutes. I was thinking that you could add a chorus (at 00:32, and just when this backing ends now) with this progression: F# - G# -A#m - C# - F# - G# . What do you think?

Ok Gab, I'll try to do it this way. I hope it's ok, If I'll do it on sunday. I'm not sure if I have enough time before that to make it ready.
It's not maybe so easy for me, but I like it, because this is a very good learning possibility for me! smile.gif
Usually I create everything just with by ear..without thinking about notes...I know notes....maybe not so fast, but if I think some seconds about it! laugh.gif

it's ok. Try those chords (1 measure for each) and see how it sounds. I think that you'll like it.

Hi guys! Are there any Breaking Bad fans?? biggrin.gif This next picture is special for Breaking Bad fans but everybody is invited to compose something related to this one. Here you can read the guidelines behind this workout:

"In this new series of forum threads we will dedicate some time to activate our spiritual side. So let's forget about reason for a while, and search deep within for creativity.

This might sound weird to you, but I guarantee once you have got a hang of it, that it will open up new possibilities.

The first experiment consists in visualizing an image that I will share. Using your deeper perception - you should musicalize it with a note, a chord, a noise, a melody, an unfinished idea, a song or whatever you can create. The creation (music) must be original, recorded by yourself and shared here.

Each of us has a different perception of reality and it will be interesting to see different GMC:ers create different musical ideas for the same image. We will then analyze the results."

Hi mate!

Now there's something for this picture! wink.gif

I think it's ok, even I still haven't seen even one episode from Breaking Bad.

I just watched this picture with this kind of thoughts:

Two men think inside, can I trust to him anymore.

This track is also good to me for later, because I'm going to update those "solos" someday, with my faster fingers smile.gif

But here it is!

Can I trust to him anymore?? That's exactly the feeling that the photo reflects and you created a perfect soundtrack to this feeling! I like the atmosphere that this melody generates. How was the composition process? What did come first, the melody or the backing?

Hi mate!

This time I made first backing with this kind of order: drums, rhythm guitar, bass and melody was the last one...and some kind of spice to it with those "solos" . cool.gif
Of course this isn't full song, but it's nice process to think about some kind of structure and I'm going to understand about it better after some time. I just have to find my inner voice and get it out with my fingers and also get my technique better and better so it's also open more doors to me in future! wink.gif These workouts are very good training! smile.gif

I can affirm that you are definitely going on the right track. Your compositions are getting deeper each time and also more consistent. It's important that you keep on composing stuff every week.
