Hello friends! It's time for a new Blues Edition! smile.gif

This workout consists of connecting phrases over a blues backing track that I will share here.
In other words, this means that we'll be creating a blues 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.


This is the backing track: Attached File  Blues_Edition_II.mp3 ( 15.06MB ) Number of downloads: 37


Taken from this lesson: https://www.guitarmasterclass.net/ls/BB-King-Blues/

Key: Bm

Time signature: 4/4

Tempo: 90 bpm

Chord progression:

Bm7 | Bm7 | Bm7 | Bm7 |
Em7 | Em7 | Bm7 | Bm7 |
Gmaj7 | F#7 | Bm7 |F#7 |

Suggested scale:






How does this work?

1. I share a backing track,

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. (ALLOW DOWNLOADS!!)

- 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.

Hi MisterM! I liked the previous tone but I think that this new one fits better with the style and backing track. It's warmer and tastier. The EQ balance is more enjoyable and the sustain is just perfect. Thanks a lot!

Hope the gigs went well Gab, cool.gif

Manu, your take is awesome, you are brilliant at the blues wink.gif As Laurent isn't around, I've gone now. I'm not really happy with it and 100% don't mind if you don't want to use it, I can listen some more to get into the track if you like.

Thank you Phill rolleyes.gif

You play a beautiful notes on the ninth bar and you stop....
Why you don't finish the loop ?
I hope that you will begin a new 12 bar solo take.

Thanks Manu,

I kinda did finish the loop but, the last notes were terrible so I cut them off in the DAW. I had no more time to re-record. I can always say I was trying to create tension for the listener wink.gif Brian has left some space for me to add something so I'll try again.

Cheers

UPDATE:

Here is my redone part. I've edited it all back into place.

That's beautiful Yoncopin! Your tone is addictive, and your phrasing is so expressive. I can feel melancholy, lonelines in your lines. Can you note it?

One thing that is great is how good the different takes connect in this one. We are building a great track! I'll be part soon, but I would like to ask:


WHO IS THE NEXT ONE??? (Remember to continue using Phil's new take, thanks Phil!)

Thanks! smile.gif That is a great compliment, I did my best to write it down for you. Ignore the rhythm, the notes are right, but I can't transcribe rhythms at all, it would take me all day and still be off. The articulations are pretty iffy to, but you'll get the idea.
