Hey guys, welcome to my first collaboration here, i would love to have a lot of takes on this one, i love how the backing track sounds, i put a lot of effort into the mixing so you guys can rock it, and it's also a very easy chord progression to solo on top.

you can play the whole thing on the A blues scale basically, here is it:



again, i would love to see a lot of takes, and if you can record video let me know, maybe i can take all the video takes and make a video collab smile.gif

here is the backing track, the deadline is oct 31 smile.gif

by the way, you can get a feel of what you may play on the original song:

And just to clarify, you can play as long as you want on the backing track, it is pretty long i know, but my idea is to take everyone´s best bits and make a final cut.
Sinisa Cekic

Sure mate, I'm in :) I'm quite busy with college these days but I'll definitely record something before the deadline ;)
MonkeyDAthos

Adrian Figallo
great guys, can't wait to see your takes!
and monkey, let's make it audio only then, that will be better for now!
Gitarrero

MonkeyDAthos

JamesT
I'm in man!
I'll jam over the whole thing and get video of it. Maybe from that there will be a few seconds of "good stuff" biggrin.gif That will give you a good picture of my improv skills too tongue.gif so you can comment.
Adrian Figallo
perfect guys, we have some more days, just send it over when it's done smile.gif
Gabriel Leopardi
What a cool backing! smile.gif
Adrian Figallo
Thank you gab, it does sounds cool i think smile.gif!
Adrian Figallo
6 days to the deadline dudes!
JamesT
Adrian, Can I get an extension? I just started jamming on this tonight. It would be great to have a few extra days.
MonkeyDAthos
i am with James, i still haven't came up with anything decent for the whole thing xD
Adrian Figallo
i guess it's ok dudes, go ahead, no entries so far so nobody´s going to wait smile.gif
JamesT
I just noticed how kick a$$ this backing is. cool.gif I love all of the detal & subtleties. Tremolo on that one part is cool!

rhoads
Hi Adrian !

I guess I'll be the first smile.gif. I wasn't sure if I will finish until today because I saw this collaboration a bit late and I didn't want to join until I had something. Anyway, since we have an extension for the deadline, this would be an intermediate where I kindly ask you to give me some feedback biggrin.gif. I can record a final one before the next deadline.

The last part was done on the spot, just left the rec on but the first two parts are where I put the work in. So.. Please tell me what you think smile.gif

From what I understood we will do audio only, right ?

Adrian Figallo
thank you man, i put a lot of love into my lessons and i love recording so.. thanks!
snackajacks
I like it a lottt.

hey mas that was a great take, i'm digging it, i think this can make it to the final cut, at the end i'm taking bits from everyone, but if you want you can record it one more time, it has some flaws here and there, some timing issues in some parts and stuff, but again, i'm going to be grabbing the best bits from everyone so it's up to you!

i like it!

Ok Adrian. Here it is. The video is out of focus a little bit, but the audio should be good. I'll upload the separate audio track as well in case you need it. This recording was taken from the best of several improvised takes. It was a good track to try out some effects. So I recorded parts with a Bass Octaver, a Tube Overdrive, and an MXR style phaser. The amp model is based on a 1929 Gibtone EH-185 (POD HD500). Sorry for the bad video. I'm kind of out of time for the week cause I've got a long day at work tomorrow. Would you believe that this video was shot with my new Canon 60D? I have to figure out how to get auto-focus to work continuously while shooting video. You'll notice that the door in the background is perfectly sharp. That's cause I autofocused it before I stepped into the shot. Got any pointers on shooting videos with a DSLR?

Anyway, I hope you like the tune. It was great fun jamming over your backing track...
