The deadline is set to for today. But since we added an additional jam track, I think we can extend it to 2015-03-10.

Would be awesome to hear your take, are you planning to record on the long or short backing track?

First of all my thoughts are with you and yours AK Rich.

Sorry but I couldn't think of anything more than this so here is the solo and with backing including the mouse squeak tongue.gif The mouse squeak has the drum backing because I didn't save the solo guitar for some stoopid reason mad.gif

Excellent Phil, I think it turned out really cool. biggrin.gif

I get Hendrix vibes (Electric Ladyland) - is he perhaps an inspiration? Very well done!

@ Procyon & Sensible, excellent - I am really looking forward to your takes!

We need two files - your solo without the backing track and your solo mixed with the backing track for reference.

Can't wait to hear what you come up with! biggrin.gif

Alright I know my takes are getting worse and in this take here it is primarily improvisation besides the end which out of nowhere I decided to flip on the wah pedal. Im not sure how I feel about the tone because I had very tiny signal to work with in logic. I had to double the track and add a ton of eq boost and compression.

I know the deadline is coming in and ill finish with something cool but I am having a hard time with this one. Too many directions when I'm playing. This take 9 of 36 and through out all the takes I go from one extreme to the next. Scales seem irrelevent when I play over this track. I feel like you could play anything over this with confidence, my confidence to pull off these licks isnt there yet.

Thank you for your kind comments Kris. I thought it was pretty bad and very quirky. Of course I was thinking of Mr Hendrix throughout the improvisation, I was tuned into his spirit and mind and floating on a cloud of Electric Ladyland vibes cool.gif Seriously though, I do like some of his work but he isn't a huge inspiration. SRV, Robert Johnson, Satch and Vai are my main ones wink.gif

I do like the mouse squeak though laugh.gif

Well I think this sounded pretty cool as an improvised take. Though tone is way on the trebly side for my taste.

The biggest thing though, is that I can somehow hear you are not playing with same conviction as in earlier takes - I can almost feel you're sick of this by now?! ph34r.gif

I can agree with what you are saying about "too many directions" - though I think this can be a good thing in the learning phase. You are exploring a lot of ground an as you mature musically, you will develop a unique voice consisting of your favorite mix of all those elements you have played around with.

For this collab, why don't you go with whatever you think sounded best? My vote goes to the take in the last video you recorded - it was pretty damn cool. cool.gif

Ah ok, well all those players (except one obvious) have Hendrix a huge influence - so we can still safely say your own influences shine through your playing.

Why do you think it was "bad and very quirky"? Were you perhaps "playing safe" in this last take? If so - then this goes back to what I told Jim - the licks you are most comfortable with (and thereby perceive as easy/boring) will be what you can deliver most convincingly and "pro" sounding.

Thanks Kris,

It's kinda growing on me, the more I listen the more I like it. It just sounds a little bit like something I'd hear in a comedy sketch, that's what I meant by "quirky".

Phil

I came back to this track today after about a week away from it. Pretty much started over from scratch although some of the ideas are somewhat similar. Its not perfect but it'll have to do. smile.gif Hope you enjoy

Awesome!! ohmy.gif

This was an over-the-top take filled with amazing guitar work. I am big sucker for that funky intro/outro wah wah scratching, the scratch rhythm in the outro is probably my favorite part.

Also how you manage to create a melodic story with that weird note chance is über cool - I can really sense an evolving melody.

Finally you throw in super precise speed picking in there and make it sound like the easiest thing in the world! biggrin.gif

The only improvement I can think of would be to have a pause / breathing room somewhere in there, I think it could make your lines sound even more powerful. I don't blame you for not killing your darlings, though!

Awesome to have you in Rustix!

Very cool, I no longer react on the left hand issue discussed earlier. Also you make great use of the major tonality and that ending with crazy tapping (?) followed by funky double stops is just splendid. Very well done! biggrin.gif

thank you very much kris ..!!

and I totally agree with you on creating space to breathe ... well maybe this time I missed that detail ....sorry this time . ohmy.gif . (maybe I worked a bit rushed with the passages because of the short time I had ) as you can see I could not finish the second section sad.gif .. but I promise to try next time ..maybe I can improve that (or maybe not) tongue.gif

I also enjoyed making Wah sections biggrin.gif ... that feels really cool ...(I think I lost a lot of time just to be entertained with the pedal without creating part of the song .....hahaha)

So here is my final take. I am not really satisfied with it but it's all I can do for now. I just had no time to work on it... however I think I learned a lot again - and that's what really counts for me.
