It sounds like a very interesting experiment. What's the shape of the new guitar coming?

Yes Gabriel, it is a very interesting experiment, there are some progress about it, we put the pickups but it sounds like single coil however they are humbucker! So I didn't like them so much, may be we will put an old gibson 57 pickups! By the way the shape of the guitar is like strat, I like this shape most, it suits me best wink.gif

Uh oh, amazing Baha! I assume it will be a guitar that should fit your fusion oriented style, am I correct? smile.gif

Oh Cosmin, you know me best! the aim of this guitar is to play it especially in turkish fusion ethnic sounds wink.gif absolutely you are correct!

Baha biggrin.gif What would you recommend people to learn if they would want to be able to play Turkish fusion?

I am thinking of scales, modes, techniques and especially listening recommendations smile.gif

I think if people want to learn some turkish fusion, they must listen to our music much more everything. There ara a lot of secret notes between for example b2 - 2, Perfect5 - b6, maj3 - b3 etc. I must say that in turkish music there are 9 notes between consecutive notes like G and Ab although there is not a space in western music between these notes! That is the I think hardest part in order to understand and feel this music. And also I can advise that he/she must play some fretless instrument to hear the secret notes. I am playing these notes in our modern guitars by using microtonal bends or floyd rose apparatus.

Hehe! I always knew it's something of a secret to it smile.gif

What did you practice in order to become acquainted with microbends? I know it's a tough aspect of playing, as your bending technique should be pretty much very good already. For me, it was imitating the human voice with all its inflections that helped me become very aware of the existence of microbends smile.gif How did it work for you?

Yeah ıt's a good approach Cosmin for bendings. I am trying to listen to melodies and then tryin to copy with my playing. I think this is the best way listening carefully then try to play it. There is not a source material about that so it is really hard to study.

Great stuff happening here! we have been jamming at the chat room with Baha yesterday and he was playing his Turkish Fusion style. As we didn't have a Turkish style backing we used this backing:




I'm amazed of the sound you get with all those micro bends and slides Baha, and I continue insisting, you should took seriously your compositions and start working. As I said yesterday, I think that you should start using any software to create drums and other instruments for your music. You said that you compose the songs just with the guitar and that they are in process. Trust me, everything changes and becomes smoother when you are able to write other instruments and you can listen to song played by full band.

Have you ever used Reaper?

Thank you so much Darius! Your advices are very important, yes it is very hard to do more smooth connection between notes with less breaks. When I listen to solo with no delay, yes you are right, but while I am playing with delay how can I be more solid, must I say to myself I must be careful and imagine with no delay or that is a thing which will appear spontaneously? Thank you very much again



I thought of myslef while listening to this smile.gif There was a time I was addicted to delay and then Ichanged the amp. It had problems with tone loss while anything being plugged in the fx loop. So...I removed eveyrthing and started to play on the dry tone. I found something is wrong with my solos. It's just a little tip but there is not much that I could advice You with the basics - You're already a very good and sensitive player smile.gif
