Thanks!!! smile.gif It's a KILLER backing which makes it extra fun to solo over!! I LOVE In Flames and you really nailed it. Could easily be an In Flames tune! smile.gif



Thanks much smile.gif I went for the throat given the full on style of the backing and it worked out better than I hoped smile.gif P.S. The "Single String Work" licks are going to be part of my next GMC VID LESSON in the VID LESSONS SECTION. It's very similar to the single string work in one of my fave collabs ever with Ben Higgins.




Another killer solo Todd! It's interesting to see how you took the same concept and re-worked it for this collab.

Thanks again for joining this one!

Remember that you can think on it as the half, 82.5 bpm.

Of course, but I'd like some 16th notes in there at the speed it is at, but I'm not sure I can play that fast laugh.gif

Don't think I've ever done 16th notes at 165 BPM. Certain patterns I can maybe push to 155 BPM. smile.gif

I don't know if this is useful to you, but I try to not find out where my limits are. Simply because if I enter a collab with the mindset "I can't quite do it" it becomes a self-fulfilling prophecy.

However if I approach with with the "I'll find a way" mindset - it can give birth to no creative solutions.

As an example, maybe it will be easier if you play it using open strings the Todd way? (and stay on just one string)

Or what I like to do is pick the first two notes, and then play the coming two notes with legato while you picking hand gets to rest (for a split second). With this stuff 90% of the audience things you are picking all the notes (or 90% of the people that care, I should say).

Or maybe combine both of the above suggestions?

Here's my try:

https://www.dropbox.com/s/mrm0qif2s7a0rez/f...%20try.mp3?dl=0

It starts with a bend from


e-----13----------------
b-----16-18-16-13---

then that longer run is

d--------------------------------------------------------------------------------15----------------------------15--16--18
a----------------------------------------------------------------15--16--18------18--16--15--16--18----------------
f-----------------13----------------------------13--15--17---------------------------------------------------------------
c 13--15--17------17--15--13--15--17-------------------------------------------------------------------------------


d--16--18--20--(X2)--18--20--22--(X2) 22b23
a----------------------------------------------------------


Notice that I have tuned to a Drop C like that backing track is.

What do you think ? It's still a demo so it's little bit sloppy but I'll make better one after your advices

Cheers

Hi mate, I think that the fact that you used drop C tuning has confused you about the scale that you are using. The notes that you are playing seem to be part from Eb minor scale or something close to it, you are not using Cm.

Please re-check the scale that you are using.

Now we are talking! There are cool ideas and phrases on this one.

I would re-check some of the longer notes used on this solo to avoid resolving phrases on notes that are not part of the chord, and even less on fourths as it happens at 00:08 where you resolve the phrase with a C while the backing plays G major. Listen to that moment, don't you feel that the notes isn't the best choice there, do you note anything that doesn't work there just by ear? It's important to polish our ear enough to be able to identify these things even without being all the time thinking on intervals.

By the way, that's a problematic chord on this backing because it's a G major which indicates that you have to change one note from the scale that you are using to make it sound good. You have to switch Bb by B, and this last note B which is the third from G major is the best choice at this moment. For example, at 00:15 try playing C and then B instead of B and Bb and notice the difference.

On the second part I feel that the licks are cool but shorter ideas that end on a good target would be more effective. The patterns start moving and keep on moving and moving, without a clear resolution. Try resolving on the thirds of the chords and your solo will have a more defined phrasing.
