    My New Year's resolution is to consolidate my efforts under one thread,
    so from now on, i'll be posting the latest stuff here instead of as separate threads.
    (or maybe not, what do you think?)
    And what better way to start things off than with a STrange Thursday jam...
    Taylor and Me (The Long And Short Of It) long version:

    Happy New Year to you too, Doglet !
    That was was a sweet Taylor.
    What are you using for drums and loop box ?
    Are you recording backing first and then lead and then make an upload file from that?

    I hope it will be as easy as now to see your posts.
    Im a little concerned if its gonna hide, as the newest one will reside in the last page (?)

    Thanks, stratosdane!
    The looper is a Boss RC-3 Loop Station, and i'm just using the built-in drum tracks from that. i usually lay down a backing rhythm track, sometimes with some fills, then do the main single note track on top.
    Once i've got it to pretty much where i want it, i'll turn on the standalone MP3 (Roland Edirol R09) recorder and record what i've got on the looper as an MP3, then i can upload that file to my soundcloud account, and link to that from here.
    For the 'challenges' with prerecorded backing tracks, i have sometimes just played the backing track on my laptop with the MP3 recorder positioned to record that while i played a live solo at the same time, but i finally figured out i can download the backing track to my laptop, play the track back and record it into the looper and then either overdub to the looper or just play live but the backing track sounds better through the guitar amp than the laptop speakers. i just have to be careful to balance the levels out.
    It's all kind of primitive, but i don't mind. In the end, it's just about 'immediate and on the spot'. i am trying not to let my OCD rule this particular area of my life... if i was going for perfection, i would never have posted my first tune here, or any of the others.
    It might actually be easier to find my posts now... if you suscribe to this thread, you can be notified when i'm posting something new, and i am usually posting music at least 3x a week, so this will keep me from feeling i'm taking up more room than i deserve here.
    There are a lot of awesome players on this site. i'm just someone who loves to play jazz; even if i'm not all that good at it. :oops:

    Subbed.

    Very ambient tune. There's a spacey dissonance from about 1:10-1:20 that sounded cool (on the short version). I dig that rare flurry of notes at 1:37 as well.

    Cool stuff again. Great chord work and single note lines as well. You have your own style, Doglet, which many people never achieve.

    Thanks for the subs and the kind comments, you guys.
    i'm so very grateful to have such good players interested in what i'm doing.

    Now it's time for another Spacey Saturday tune, and i think i'm going for some looper madness. Here's some background info:
    On February 5, 1978, Robert Fripp made his debut as a solo artist at the Kitchen, a loft performance space on Wooster Street in Lower Manhattan, NYC which had previously hosted some of the city’s most exciting avant-garde performers, including Philip Glass, Laurie Anderson, and Robert Wilson.
    That date marked the debut of 'Frippertronics', his trailblazing experiment in live looping. He used two Revox tape recorders to make his loops and play over them.
    Lately, i've been getting into the Frippertronics sound, and this is the result.
    Apologies to Mr. Fripp... hence the title.

    Hey Doglet, haven't been on the my music forum in a while... man, I love the atmosphere around your productions... you must be one with a very peaceful soul.
    Gorgeous soundscapes man.

    Standards Sunday again, and i'm in a wistful mood... so here's a tune for that.

    In The Wee Small Hours Of The Morning

    Here's some background on it from wikipedia:
    "In the Wee Small Hours of the Morning" is a 1955 popular song composed by David Mann, with lyrics by Bob Hilliard. It was introduced as the title track of Frank Sinatra's 1955 album In the Wee Small Hours.
    It was composed by Mann and Hilliard during a post-midnight session at Hilliard’s New Jersey home. Mann was about to depart for New York when Hilliard insisted he remain to try some impromptu songwriting. Mann reluctantly agreed and eventually came up with the tune, to which Hilliard quickly wrote a lyric.


    So beautiful, really; i think it was worth missing his train for, don't you? :)
    i added an intro, which i repeat between the solo chorus and the repeat of the theme at the end.

    Hi Dogletnoir,

    "Get out of my kitchen".... = Absolutely intense ! Possibly your best composition yet ! Everyone should to listen to this, as there's moments of surreal joy in there, reminiscent at times of Mr. Garcia on the Live Dead album. I didn't expect anything like this at all. You should dine with Mr.Fripp more often.

    "In the wee small hours of the morning".... = Great playing & warm tones. The results of all your hard-work & practice are really starting to come through. Thanks for posting.

    Cheers,

    Rastus

    "Get of out My Kitchen" - what a great piece! You do make soundscapes- and you write good melodies. I really enjoyed that one. Your playing and writing are very interconnected. Quite impressive, dogletnoir.

    Thanks for those kind words on those efforts, my friends.

    Here's a repost from Improv Challenge #89, 'C Phrygian':

    i like to try and make these things into songs, rather than just jamming over the top of them; that's part of the challenge for me... so i kind of cheated and added some chords and riffs to the basic backing track with the Surf Green Squier Bullet, and then did the improv over the top of the expanded track using an SL50 T-type. :)

    And, since it's STrange Thursday, i might as well post the latest in the Abstraction series:

    Played on a Classic Vibe Duo-Sonic in New Standard Tuning.

    i finally figured out that the short scale neck's lesser string tension makes it the perfect guitar for NST!
    i have a sneaking suspicion that whoever put strings on her first might have gotten the low E and A strings switched around, tho'.
    i'll have to fix that at some point... :)

    Beautiful playing. I think your single note lines are becoming more melodic w every post. You really create memorable solos. I like the volume knob swells and vibe on Ab 10 alot

    TY, mshivy!
    Ab 10 was a lot of fun, i'm really enjoying playing in NST, it definitely has its own feel and is taking me to some pretty cool places musically.

    Tonight is Spacey SaTurday, but i'm reposting the track i did for S-T improv challenge #90 here because i think it fits that theme pretty well...

    KT strat in Eb. Getting emo...

    From wikipedia:
    "Maggot Brain" is a song by the band Funkadelic. It appears as the lead track on their 1971 album of the same name.
    The original recording of the song, over ten minutes long, features little more than a spoken introduction and a much-praised extended guitar solo by Eddie Hazel.
    Music critic Greg Tate described the song as Funkadelic's A Love Supreme; the song is #60 on the Rolling Stone list of 100 Greatest Guitar Songs.
    Reportedly, "Maggot Brain" was Hazel's nickname.
    Other sources say the title is a reference to band leader George Clinton finding his brother's "decomposed dead body, skull cracked, in a Chicago apartment."

    OMG...

    After the emotional intensity of Maggot Brain, i'm in the mood for lighter fare...
    It's STandards Sunday again, and i just made it this time, LOL.

    This tune was everywhere in the mid-1960s, apparently.
    Introduced as the Love Theme from the movie 'The Sandpiper' in 1965,
    it was covered by singers like Barbra Streisand, Shirley Bassey, Astrud Gilberto, Bobby Darrin and Ella Fitzgerald, and jazz musicians Eddie Harris, Wes Montgomery, Al Hirt, Oscar Peterson, Jack McDuff and Bill Evans all had their way with it as well.
    It's a great tune, and a classic, played on my Classic Vibe Tele Custom.

    Good to hear your tunes again Dogletnoir, after few weeks off having a vacation and just hanging out with my family.

    I listened to some of the tunes you posted earlier, will finish them all later but Taylor and Me is really enjoyable, a very laid back Jazz with simple melodies to fill in the song :). Also Abstraction is very good, I love how the song sort of feels like a little journey to search something, I don't know if that's your intention or just my interpretation hahahaha but I like it, has that sense of depth in it.

    You are a natural, dogletnoir. Everything you play makes musical sense. This was a little more upbeat for you and I really dug that. You are a true musician.
