    Find a scale that has those notes (the root for each chord.) in it. Also look/listen for the resolution. That'll give you the key center.

    Here's F major.

    F, G, A, Bb, C, D, and E.

    So...no go.

    C minor scale:

    1-C, 2-D, 3-Eb, 4-F, 5-G, 6-Ab, and 7-Bb.

    When you look at a natural minor scale, the 3 (Eb) is the relative major. So, the Eb major scale has the same notes. :)

    I just heard it @ 2:01

    When I tried it last night, I played F major scale, the note C, D, F and G sounded right but not the rest. I knew I was doing something wrong :D I'm still slow in finding the right key on the fly, even if I have the chords in front of me. I just don't focus well; impatient ;)

    Just remember this:

    Intervals build chords.
    Intervals make scales.
    Scales build chord progressions.

    Identify the key center.
    Identify the chord progression (and the scale it is derived from) from the root of each chord in the progression. :)

    This is the most amazing website for quick look ups and scales. I go to this all the time when I need to understand how a song works, what key it is in the different minor scales etc. Total money :)

    Yes, When I download and import to my recording software (Reaper) I create 2 tracks and move alternating "paragraphs" (usually 4 bars or whatever) to separate track. That way I can "see" the changes coming. I f you don't do this and have trouble knowing when to change your phrasing to the next thought this could be very helpful. Kevin Showed me how to do this and it is pure gold. It is easy to punch in corrections and overlays this way as well

    Yeah, for me I didn't go into the "why's" or "wherefor's", it just felt a little ...."uncomfortable". But I figure that's what the Challenges are for so I tried to adjust.

    * Too easy as the younguns say..(hate that expression:mad:, what, you want me to make it really hard) or
    * It's all good..(hate that too:mad:.....nothing is all good)

    carry on...

    Bass plus Tele and slowed to 60 bpm.



    [EDIT] Curious how it'd sound at 80 bpm, I set it back to the original. Note I originally recorded the bass at 80 bpm before deciding to slow it for the guitar given the mood I was in. Anyhoo, here's the same thing as above but at 80:

    I have been wrestling with this one too. I had to listen for a long time to get a feel for the "paragraphs" Here is my try. It is a mando and my PRS going back and forth

    Well, it is a loopy track to say the least. The wacky timing is the fun challenge as it makes it a little work to create phrasing.

    Starts out boring but about 2:30 I just went "to heck with this" and played it like I stole it. Turns out, this little loop phrase responds well to some agro.
