Awesome guys! Great to know that you'll be working on this new assignment. Be sure to check the original lesson and some Gary's videos for some inspiration.

Good first try Laurent. Please keep on working on this one, trying to create more consistent phrases, and as you've said, use less notes and and more feeling, using more vibrato, bending, slides and other arranging tools.

I'll share an extended version tomorrow for practising.

Ok Gab,

Had to have a night off alternate picking practise, head was frazzled tongue.gif First attempt, total improvisation, it was a total first take and I didn't expect another solo guitar to come in laugh.gif Still don't have enough licks in my library to make things interesting but here it is anyway smile.gif

Hi Phil!

There are some interesting elements on this first try! smile.gif

- Cool and catchy rhythm. The rhythm of your phrasing made me dance.
- There is a long note with vibrato in the end, the solo needs more of that!
- There are not wrong notes or pitch issues.
- There are no timing issues.


Ideas to continue practising:

- More defined phrases, more connected with chords.
- More rhythm variation.
- More vibrato and bending.
- What about learning the original lesson to borrow some licks?


Great stuff mate!

Thanks Gab,

Your comments cheered me up, I haven't been having much success in my playing lately. I'll work on it again tonight.

Cheers buddy smile.gif

UPDATE:

Here is tonight's piece. I tried to concentrate on the notes from Em7 chord (EDGB I found on the web). I think this is better than the last one, seems a bit smoother, more relaxed to me.

I have to say, when I listen to the playback, the two bends near the beginning sound a little flat to my ears.

Cheers

Hi Phil, yes, this new take is a new step forward into the right direction. I can feel some Hendrix influences on this new one.

It's a good idea to slowly try to connect more and more with the chords, so the next goal could be to identify the minor thirds of the other two chords while jamming. What do you think?

Thanks Gab,

I'll give it a go. I have to have the scale generator on screen for reference so I'll sort something with that.
Something I have noticed, I seem to connect with rhythms more than tones.

Cheers smile.gif

This assignment was a good excuse to learn all five minor pentatonic shapes. Still use most of the time dedicated to this thread to practice them in different keys but its getting better each day.
Just a first try here. This track sounds already perfect to me so its hard to add something that makes sense.

Hi Tom, good first try! It's great to know that this assignment is a good excuse to get into the 5 pentatonic shapes. The idea is to slowly start to identify chord tones to focus on them while using the other notes from the pentatonic to complete the phrasing, as Phil has been doing.

Deal?

So I should concentrate on notes of the chords (Em Gm Am) as "strong notes" and only add pentatonic as passing notes? Did I get it right?

That's a good approach for practising during the next days... then, when soloing you'll combine different approaches, but being able to see everything will open possibilities a lot.

Hi Laurent - It's really impressive not only to hear but to see you playing too ... wink.gif

The new jamtrack is great as its only rhythm and does not have the solo parts of the lesson. Will work in the assignment with the new backing right away. Thanks Gab!

Hi Laurent, well done! There are some magical moments on this jam! This is the work that you need to do every day. I've noted that you have some hands sync issues when playing fast licks. These requires two things:

- try to jam playing slower phrases.
- try to play these ideas with more legato than picking.
- add some alternate picking practice to your technique routine
