Once again fine take Eddie.
If we take the fact that you've played only 3 months it's awesome job. wink.gif
But I just have to correct you in one matter,theory wise.
You mentioned using G mixolyidian.
I would say that cause the key is C major.
And since G is dominant chord it might look like G mixolydian
but our main/root chord decides that,and that's C chord. smile.gif

Noo,you got it quite good,except of the main chord.
I'll try to explain it to you.
Let's say your friend plays C chord on guitar for an hour.
1 hour,only one chord,C chord(main).
And then you start to play notes of C scale,starting from G and up to G.
Is that G mixolydian?
No,you can hear it,it's still C major. smile.gif
But if you start playing C mixoliydian(Bb note on 7th),now you can hear sound of mixolydian.
Hope this cleared it a bit.

Yes, I think so...
If my friend plays C for an hour and then changes to C7
THEN I can modulate from C Ionian to C mixolydian because in C7 there's a Bb, right?

Wasn't thinking of any modulation,
just straight chord and scale that you play,major or mixolydian.
But looks like you got the point wink.gif

I'm doing my best to understand...
Fantastic!
So in my next backing track I'll stick to C major,
but I'll put a C7 somewhere,
and I'll play C Ionian all through the "song" and then shift to C mixolydian on C7. (Your lesson on mixo is great!)
Sorry for being such a bore!
Cheers, have a nice evening, Eddie

smile.gif It can take some years to get it Eddie. Good explanation from Muris (as usual smile.gif ) btw.

Recording a vamp - a static chord played for a long period - is a great way to get to understand the modes and a great way to learn to improvise.

Cheers,
Tony

Hi Muris!
As you told me yesterday, I tried to do something on your A BT.
This is my effort. I concentrated on the sound of mixolydian, but I also put Em pentatonic.
I'm very sorry for my timing, I can hear it sucks, but I'm keeping on practising to a metronome
so I hope it will get better in time.
Ok, that said, I hope it's ok...
Cheers, Eddie smile.gif

Hi Muris! Can't even begin to tell you how much you're being missed here! smile.gif
I hope you're having a great time!
I've been studying your Bb minor lesson a lot, and I'm doing fine at 55 Bpms'...
At 72 there are quite a few ( laugh.gif ) problems, but I tried recording it nevertheless.
Btw, thank you so much for putting the chords you use in the lessons,
they are great for making one's own backing tracks.
I know the playing isn't fluid and the "sweeps" suck,
at 72 bpms' it's quite a challenge for me,
but I hope you can hear some improvement! dry.gif

Hey eddie,
Did I understand that correct that the backingtracks are made by you ?
May I ask you which VSTs you used for the piano/drums ? smile.gif

Hy Chast!
Yes, I do my own backing tracks because we cant download our teachers' BTs
and because practicing to a metronome can get boring.
I use Cubase sequencer and a TASCAM US-122 midi/audio interface (cheap but works fine)
and a very cheap Roland master keyboard.
For Drums I used Best Service Artist Grooves.
It's very simple to use and it has some really nice loops recorded by 4 real drummers.
For piano, bass and pad I used Plugsound. It has different volumes you can choose from,
and if you ask your local music store owner, I'm sure he'll be happy
to give you some advises on what is best for you.
Now I'm waiting for Christmas to get a few more!
If you have any questions just ask,
I'll be happy to share my poor knowledge with you! laugh.gif
Cheers, Eddie

For Muris: yes, I tried to show off adding a few notes! But at 55 Bpms' it works much better! laugh.gif

This is just something I found out recently
and I would like to share with who is working on BTs (Cubase):
if you have a lot of open VSTs and it looks like
your computer can't handle them,
transform them in audio tracks (export function)
and then close the corresponding VST and erase the midi track.
Your PC will be very thankful! smile.gif

Cheers
Eddie
