Hi friends!! LWho wants to Jam with me??

I've decided to open a new thread with an easier backing so everybody can join!! It's time for blues!!!

The backing was taken from '30 Beginner Blues Licks' lesson so you can get lots of ideas from there. (LINK)


The idea is simple. Record yourself doing a quick/spontaneous jam over this backing track. Share the video, only guitar audio and audio mix. I'll record a Jams inspired by each participant take.

Then I'll share a final video with this structure: Gab Intro - Participant 1 - Gab Jam - Participant 2 - Gab Jam - Participant 3 - Gab Jam and so...

Your take should be as long as the backing that I'm sharing here. (20 seconds)


Backing track: Attached File  Blues_Backing_Gab_Jam.mp3 ( 1.53MB ) Number of downloads: 43



KEY: E BLUES

CHORDS:
| E7 | A7 | E7 | E7 |
| A7 | A7 | E7 | E7 |
| B7 | A7 | E7 | B7 |

TIME: 12/8







Who is in?

100% in but it won't be until around October 8th as I'm on holiday from tomorrow, if that's not ok, just go ahead without me, I'll jam along to the track anyway when I get back.

Cheers smile.gif

I'm working on something for this too. I tried the last backing and just couldn't find inspiration. I liked trying to break from the blues, but just couldn't find my footing.

Yeah! I've noticed that this happened to some students and that's why I've started this new one! Great to know that you'll share your take!!

I know this is supposed to be a quick spontaneous video take over these "Jammin with Gab" things but I've been away and only just got in my house. There hasn't been much action in this thread so I got sat down and did a single audio take, here it is, mistakes and all, there's a big stumble at 00:32. I hope it gets some activity going.

I'll do a video this week, it will be similar to this. I'll make it as spontaneous as I can after already doing one take wink.gif

Hi Phil, nice to find this take here!! smile.gif

I've already said that you are a great improviser and that this recordings show your awesome progress and how your work at GMC is having a big impact in your overal guitar playing.

This blues solo has a very interesting phrasing work. The call and response concept can be clearly noted here and it evolves naturally. I also like your tone, it's clean, warm and it fits perfect with the backing track's sound.

Congrats and thank for joining!

Thanks Gab, that was just a super quick take to try and get the ball rolling. I got home late from work today so didn't get chance to do a video but I will very very soon.

Cheers buddy.

Ok, here is a take, I'm not super happy with the timing and as usual I flunk the ending (as you can see by my face rolleyes.gif ) but it's spontaneous and the is an element of REC button syndrome going on. I reckon with some practise I could get a better take if you want me to.

Cheers gab.

Hi Phil, good job mate!!

I've enjoyed your take, and watching your faces while playing those licks. You are really feeling it mate! I think that you should continue practicing Blues improvisations over this backing track, with the REC button On.

You can use this thread, or the mentoring one to share your different takes. My suggestion is to keep on recording and choose one element or concept to focus on each take.

These are some concepts that I would work:

- Dynamics
- Rhythm
- Vibrato
- Double stops (thirds / sixths)
- Scale choices
- Arpeggios
- Following the chords with thirds
- Bending
- Phrasing


What do you think?

Thanks Gab,

I didn't realise I was doing those ugly faces until I watched it back, it's a bit embarrassing laugh.gif For me it's much harder when it's only 20 seconds, with a longer track like the one below, I can get absorbed in to it, with a short piece, I'm just getting into 2nd gear and the end turnaround comes and disrupts my flow. I know we need to be able to do quick improvisations but you can hear the difference. I've put my favourite Em take from a few weeks ago below for reference.

Cheers buddy

hehehe don't worry, I think that those are great guitar faces! It's not a bad idea to be trained to do a cool improvisation over a short backing. Imagine that you are playing at a live jam with many guitarists. You'll have to be able to give your best when it comes your time. smile.gif

Your playing over Em backing is amazing mate, very tasty.
