Full Version: Gmc 'blues As A Tool' Collab!
GMC Forum > Discussion Boards > PRACTICE ROOM
Gabriel Leopardi
Hello friends!! Welcome to a new GMC Collaboration! smile.gif

This time I decided to go for a backing track recorded by our amazing Instructor Javier Aviles, but I got the inspiration from this Jam School lesson recorded by our founder and guitar Master Kristofer Dahl: Blues as a Tool. You can get ideas from that lesson!

WHO WOULD LIKE TO BE PART OF THIS ONE?

Last year I think I was asking about swamp blues here, sort of reminded me that. Slide might work well with this if anyone is into it.
Todd Simpson
I'm flexible. Maybe we can do your retro track next time?

Sure! I still have to improve that track so this is a quick blues jam to have some fun! smile.gif

Is that definitely the right backing track Gab? There's some odd twangy guitar happening at 1:06 and 1:12. For now I've downloaded the 6 minute version from here >> https://www.guitarmasterclass.net/ls/JamSch...lues-As-A-Tool/ to put into my DAW for experimentation.

Cheers buddy.

Hi Gab, Hi all GMCer

Hi mate! That's not officially a collab, it's something special that I organisefrom time to time and that turned amazing here:




The second one didn't collapse! I hope that we have a few more participants to make it cool. (some students promised takes).

The latest COLLAB is "GMC goes 70's" and the mix is already available (video coming soon) HERE.


I hope to see you on this new one as well! Blues is always welcome for students of any level. smile.gif

Also, you can make your Collab requests HERE. Todd and Onetabmat requested an 80's Synthwave collab. I'm working on the backing track for that one for the next collab, however, I wonder if there are more students interested on this genre.

Yes! This is the original backing track from the lesson. It includes those guitars as an arrangement for the guitar lesson (Check out the main video). By the way I've also included the Jamtrack version in the first post. Thanks for notifying Phil!

Great!!! šŸ˜ŠšŸ™ŒšŸ»

struggled finding the flow with this one and I slowed down and just created something that complemented the track IMO.
hope you guys like it
Todd Simpson
Sounds like a plan !! I like your retro tracks a lot. Have you thought about doing an EP just a few songs, digital release only, with maybe some extra players and have people vote on which solos to include?

That's great mate! This is a cool backing to experiment with new ideas and approaches. I know that it can be tricky to jam along with it but this can be an excuse to explore and find new roads! smile.gif

I didn't think on this before but I've seen this idea in the other thread.... what would you do with the EP? How would you release it?

yoncopin
Here's my initial take. I;m into the playing but could probably export a better video and maybe reamp with a slightly less gainy tone. Fortunately I recorded a dry track this time too. It's good to have your recording setup handy when inspiration strikes! smile.gif Hope you guys like it.

MisterM
Very Nice !
Tone is great don't change it. Your vibrato is impressive !

Too bad, I have very little time to play this week
Iā€™m renovating my house to sell it.

This one starts very well

Here is my first improvised take Gab. I'd love to have been able to offer something like Brian did, hopefully one day I'll get there, it's just the kind of thing I'd like to create. Sorry for the weird body language and faces at times laugh.gif

Hi,
here is my take. There are some timing problems, but unfortunately I will not have much time to rework because I do not have much free time these days. I hope that suits.

for once I played as a right-handed biggrin.gif

Should the audio file?

Todd Simpson
Thanks for joining in!!! Yeah, he will probably need the isolated guitar track so he can put it in the mix.
