A master class. Beautifully melodic.
Another track melodically playful and fun for me.
Erica, you are a frikkin genius.
Well I thought about what I wrote regarding Minor pent...It will work if used judiciously:
The Other one for some side-by-side comparison:
Liverpudlian. Simon Marsden takes a Ferry Cross The Mersey to go pacemaker shopping. A pleasure Si.
You guessed it
No click track is a challenge
I could have you playing it in an hour. You've got this.
Wow. Just wow.
Sure...if it fits.
In this you've got The I,IV, and V.
So let's take the A major scale:
The I = 1-3-5. A-C#-E
The IV = 4-6-1. D-F#-A
The V = 5-7-2. E-G#-B
Without the presence of the b7 in any of these chords (dom 7) it'll sound a bit off. Half/whole and whole/half really sound best over a diminished chord.
Here's another, slightly different take for you Chris.
Both tracks are very cool but that new one really hits home. Great tone on that handwound, Tele (I'm assuming).
Thanks Alan. Its got that blues crap everyone likes in it. LOL
The first one is meant to be a straight up Booker T and the MG's tribute. After all, the workshop is about composition...not licks.
Don't get me wrong, I think they are both cool, I just loves me that blues crap.
The whole purpose of the exercise is to take off the blues box training wheels when it comes to the I/IV/V and explore melody and the major scale. Some of you get it...some are warming up to it... some of you are having a hard time with it. But that's why this is a workshop and not a jam thread.
The basic blues...and I'm going to get flack for it...(guess what? I don't care ) is an easy predictable form ( 12 bar or 16 bar) that you can blow scales over with a 90% rate of hitting the right notes at the right time. Its a crutch most beginning and intermediate guitar players lean on. I know...I did it myself.
If you were my neighbor...we'd start a band. Wonderful and happy.
And all you'd have to do is pay/ply @Thrup'ny Bit with Guinness.
A different approach:
i love that bass part, @fezz parka ! So punchy!!
Thanks for this one; it's so much fun to work with!
Well just call me Peg-Leg (Jar Head) Al.
I hear what you are saying Chris and can appreciate it. I guess what I enjoy about the blues is the viscera-emotive possibilities as it relates to the guitar; it's not what you're playing but how you are playing it for me. You'll probably say that is possible with other forms or approaches but I'm a simple guy - although I like homemade mashed potatoes and fresh spinach from the garden, I also like canned spinach and instant potato's
Your threads are great fun and are good learning experiences - thank you for that.
If Mr. Bit were my neighbor I'd put him in that sea captain's chest along with Mr.Jass Jassington .
And then you might just get beat up by a girl... LOL!
