Hello friends!

I have decided to start the Creativity Workout II. Some of the old students maybe remember that we've already done this experiment in the past with great results. Based on the success of the Creativity Workout 1, I decided to relive this one too.....

In this one, the experiment consists of connecting melodic lines over a backing track that I will share here.
In other words, this means that we'll be creating a song together.

It will be very interesting to listen to melodies we create by connecting guitar lines and being influenced by each other yet still adding our own style along the way. I think that his experiment will make it a rich learning experience for everybody.

Besides the backing track I will also provide a word or phrase that reflects the feeling that we would like to convey while creating the melodies.

This will hopefully inspire us to go with our composing ideas even deeper and I’m sure that the results will influence everyone.

How does this work?

1. I share a backing track and a word which reflects a feeling.

2. The first participant (A) downloads the backing, records a 2 or 4 measures melody or arrangement (or both) over it and uploads an audio with the whole backing and his take. (please share an only guitar file for future mixing)

2. The next participant (B ) downloads participant's (A) file and records a 2 measures melody next to (B )’s take.

3. Participant ( C ) downloads (B )’s file and does the same.

4. We keep building the tune by extending lines and melodic ideas together


Some rules and suggestions:

- The melodies / arrangement should last 2 or 4 measures and can be created with guitar, vocals or other instruments.

- I will give 10 days to play each backing until we discuss the result and start with a new one.

- Remember to allow downloads If you use Soundcloud.

- Save original files in your computer! We might want to re-mix it later.

- Please upload a file that only contains your guitar to let me do experiments.

- Don’t be shy. This workout is appropriate for all levels: BEGINNERS, INTERMEDIATE AND ADVANCED.

- Feel free to contact me if you need help with recording, mix down and uploading the files.


BACKING I

This is the backing that we'll use: Attached File  Beginner_Spring_Tune_Rock_Ballad_backing_track.mp3 ( 2.42MB ) Number of downloads: 91


It's in D major, and I borrowed it from this amazing lesson: https://www.guitarmasterclass.net/ls/Beginner-Spring-Tune/

Nice entry mate! I like how this one is turning out! I'll extend backing if it's necessary. Please allow downloads on your soundcloud take to let the next student download your take to record. Also if there is a possibility to put your guitar a bit louder in the mix, it would be create.

Thanks for joining!!

It shouldn't be full if we're only 3 and have played 2-4 meassures each. Maybe there's a misunderstanding somewhere.

Hi mate, it's not full, you could start your phrase at 00:47. The lines that appear there are part of the backing, just background melodies.
By the way I'll extend this backing when it's completed.

I'll wait a new extended backing track wink.gif
