Hello friends! Welcome to a new GMC collaboration!

This time I'll use the backing of my Ed Sheeran lesson which is an epic pop acoustic ballad that could become a killer song with the help of you. We could make this one with vocals or instrumental, it depends on the material that I receive here. Everything is welcome.

There are only two requisites: try to make simple and tasty stuff for this one. smile.gif

This is the backing track: Attached File  Epic_Pop_Collab___GuitarMasterClass.net.mp3 ( 3.75MB ) Number of downloads: 84


Tempo: 105 bpm


The chord progression is:

Intro: E - B - C#m - A

Verse: E - B - C#m - A

Pre-chorus: F#m - E/G# - A

Chorus: E - B - C#m - A


The scale suggested is E major, or E Pentatonic Major.




IF YOU NEED HELP LET ME KNOW! I'M HERE TO GUIDE YOU.


IMPORTANT INFO About files required:

In order to make the things easier for compiling takes and mixing I need that each participant shares 3 files:

- Audio file with the mix of the backing and your guitar.
- Audio file only with your guitar (If possible this audio should have the same length than the mix version)
- Video of you playing the solo, and if it's not possible a picture. (Mp4 format if it's possible)

The best way to share this is compressing in a zip file to be downloaded from here or using sharing service as dropbox, wetransfer, and copying the link here.

If you decide to share your files using soundcloud please remember to "allow downloads".

Thanks!



DEADLINE: April 27 th



PS: Are you a new member? A GMC collaboration is based on a backing track over which you can add your playing (solos, arrangements, vocals, other instruments) and share it here. Then I'll mix everything to build a full song.



Who is in?? smile.gif


So this is the final work for this one:

Follow the chords. Start by finding the third of each chord and play them. Then slowly start connecting this thirds with other notes from the scale. That's a good trick. wink.gif

I had a bit of a mess around. I haven't got my Atomic now and the Helix will be some days yet so I just pulled something out of my GT100.

The tone is not good for the piece but I've put an idea down for you to listen to. I thought about finding a better clean tone and then as the tension builds, adding some drive to it, but that's down the road.

Here's my first chorus idea. I'll try and record it better tomorrow. I can't really kick through on singing as it's almost 00:00 here.

Hi Phil! I really like this! In the case you don't get your Helix, could you please send me a direct guitar take, without any pedal or emulator? In this case I can assign one of my favorite plug ins to improve this tone. What do you think?

Nice Laurent! I like your ideas here. I enjoyed a lot the tapping pattern. Please find the time to send me this one or an updated version of this solo. smile.gif

Wou!! This will be killer! That's a great first demo man! I'm happy to know that we will have vocals on this one. A new GMC hit is coming.

There you go Gab, this was a bit of ear training for me as I only knew what notes were first in each little piece. I think I went for thirds on the chord changes but I may be wrong G#, D#, F# and C#

Can you tell me what it is you like about it please?

I will try to evolve it some more, after that part the backing gets stronger so I was going to add a tiny little bit of drive and some bending phrases.

Thanks

Phil

You have a very rich texture to your singing voice. Singing is something that genetics play a part in. Anyone can learn to sing, but unlike guitar, to some degree, your genes have a big impact on your vocal chords. of course, as a guitar player your genes could give you stubby fingers or spider fingers, so there's that smile.gif But some folks are born with better pipes. You sir have a nice set of pipes!! I would encourage you to keep exploring your singing technique!!
