You're very welcome Gab.

I'm struggling with motivation at the moment mate, sorry. Probably just because I'm tired with the workload at work currently.
I think Scott (Bleez) is struggling too.

Cheers

Phil

Thank you for your understanding Gab,

I've just discovered the collab I entered last Christmas and it has inspired me a bit. I really like this piece even though it's simple. I don't know if you ever saw it but here it is.

Hi Phil, nice playing here. I'm not sure if this is an original solo or a cover, what are you exactly playing? I liked the melody, and your vibrato on this recording. Your tone also fits good with the backing.

Thanks Gab,
I appreciate that.
It was an improvisation but when I played it back I thought there were elements of Cryin' by Satch in the beginning, I think it's the pre bends.
It was totally improvised though.
Cheers

Hey Phil, I've seen your comment on the punk collab. I don't think that you can't solo over the first section. It's not a fast tempo, what about working on something for it a bit here?

Thanks Gab,
I know it's not really fast, I meant I am to be able to do ballad stuff better.
I'm going away for a few days to celebrate the new year so I'll try when I get back. I need to get back on track anyway
Cheers my friend.

Ok mate! End of year is the best time to re-organize and set new goals. Happy new year! See you when you're back.

Happy new year to you to mate. I'm not leaving until tomorrow smile.gif

Update:

I had my first go at the Sex Pistols lesson in about a month tonight. Probably since HERE but I managed to play it all the way through at 50% speed, not super clean but I got through it, no vibrato yet either but I'll put that in when I get more comfortable with it wink.gif I can't believe that I managed it after about 15 minutes when I consider the trouble I was having when I stopped playing it. It's like my fingers have been practising in my sleep smile.gif

Cheers mate.

Thanks for your patience Gab, I was starting to think you might throw me out of the army because of recent commitment or lack of it.
Cheers smile.gif

Hello Gab,
Ok, my head is better now the funeral is over, it was a very dark cloud looming over my head.

I've just had a go at the theory assignment 1, task 2, and I thoroughly enjoyed it. I tend to get stuck in a certain groove and can't break out of it but that comes with experience I guess as you build your knowledge.

I think I will do all three tasks to learn them and then every couple of days I will go over them again to reinforce the knowledge in my head.

I apologise in advance for the many question I might be asking. I seem to have a mental block with music theory for some reason, ask me to explain the coefficient of thermal linear expansion, or continuous second order polynomial function and I can, but music theory blink.gif

It's not that I lack intelligence but you probably get it yourself with some things, they just don't stick. That's why I'm hoping this will help with the application involved.

Thanks for this mate wink.gif

Hi Phil, good to know that things are getting lighter now. As I've said at the theory thread, your questions are always welcome! That's the purpose of this forum! Helping, giving feedback and making music are the main goals here.

If everything goes as I expect it, this new workout will motivate you to make music while learning theory, composition and improvisation concepts.

As always, don't think too much, enjoy it!
