Morning all!

I've recorded another small phrase for you to work with. This is a common blues lick that uses a slide to move from the 5th to 6th fret and back again. If you look at the screen grab you'll see that you can use just your 1st and 3rd fingers to play this lick. If you listen to the recording you'll notice an audible difference between the first slide lick and the second slide lick. The second slide lick uses an extra picked note which makes it sound more aggressive. Have a play with it and see if you can work it into your solos smile.gif

Hey Laurent, you're doing fine my friend - don't quit on us now, you're part of our team!

A slightly distorted clean tone will work fine, which is what I've used. Or you can have a bit more gain if you prefer - it's up to you. Use whichever guitar is most comfortable and enjoyable to play.

Most blues masters would shake their heads at me for using a 7 string Ibanez but guess what? It works! biggrin.gif

Also.. take a look at this latest lick I've posted. We will keep using this collab thread to share ideas and help each other build a solo!

Cheers Jim. Damn right.. if it feels right - it is right!

Sorry for the delay, guys.. obviously the site has been down and then I was collecting and stacking bales of hay into the evening yesterday... and I've got another day of it today!! rolleyes.gif

Hi Laurent, your 2nd take here is more sophisticated and controlled than the first. I'd like to encourage you to allow more empty spaces between your phrases. At the moment, you're filling most of the space. In blues you want to leave little gaps here and there smile.gif

You're using mainly the natural minor scale which has 2 extra notes than the minor pentatonic. This can make it sound too dark sometimes.. too dark for blues even. Maybe try using only the minor pentatonic as it will suit the backing more. Or try a bit of both??

This is great stuff by the great Scot(t)! cool.gif

You've got a good mixture of slowness with business. My fave bit is how you outline that chord turnaround at 0:44-0:45 - excellent! I only wished for that whole tone bend at 0:48 to be a semitone higher, so it would be a minor 3rd instead of a 9th... if you had hit that note and let it hang (or picked it a few times at the top of the bend)and then brought it down a semitone for the F chord it would have been just perfect! biggrin.gif

thank ye kindly sir biggrin.gif
I wasnt 100% on that last bend, sometimes it sounded really nice and other times I thought it was a bit iffy. I'll defo try that extra semitone though, still got plenty time before the deadline. Thanks for the pointer smile.gif

Here's one from me smile.gif Of course, per usual, I am still struggling with leaving any gaps of any kind in a solo smile.gif I found a tone that didn't lend itself to shreddery which helped keep me in check a bit. I"m using only the built in tone bits inside of LOGIC X.

Yeah, 9ths can be a funny interval.... it's all about how you resolve it with what note comes next - it's all trial and error! smile.gif

That's a dang nice tone there, T-Power! Is that traces of an auto wah on there??

Thanks Ben smile.gif Believe it or not, I put aside my beloved auto wah, this is a patch using the pedal board inside LOGIC X.

I think what your hearing is the SPIN BOX and TOTAL TREMOLO doing a bit of a wah impersonation smile.gif Here is a grab.

Hey Laurent, this 1st take is really good - this is really in blues territory now. The tone is the best one you've tried so far. The note choice is also the best. I can hear more pauses between the phrases which allows everything to breathe. As guitarists, we don't have to fill every single space with something.. we're just like vocalists. Sing a line here and there smile.gif

Great job - how do you feel about it?

Ah right.. it's got this really nice quality where it seems to open out on the extended notes smile.gif

I finally managed to record my take... I planned to do it earlier but then I slightly injured my hand and couldn't play for some days. It should be ok now... dry.gif

Well, bleez, I just realised that my take starts exactly the same way as yours! Of course I did not steal your idea (I just saw your take right now) - but it must be a really good idea since I absolutely like your take, it's awesome!
