Superb backing, Marin! Bass playing is tight as a drum and the chord work is gorgeous. Your solo kills. :dude

I'll be playing over this one for the next few days for sure. :D

Edit:
I wasn't finding the inspiration I needed for this song so I grabbed the Strat, put on tons of delay and just kinda laid back. I was playing around with the wammy bar a little here and there, espcially on the chords in the intro. Not sure if I like it, but it's late and I felt like posting. :D

PeaceNF

BTW, your take still slays me. Just awesome! :dude

Marin, your take had some superb bluesy feel in the high energy lines! I loved it!

Norm, real dreamy! Awesome feel!

Greg, loved the tasty chordal work! Too bad you did not use the mod! LOL Great feel...

Scott: As I've said elswhere: very nice playing and a wonderful b violin-type tone. This one is a keeper.

Norm: lots of "feel" as usual. Nice playing.

Fig: some stylish lines and classy crisp tone.

thanks,

Marin

I programme the drum machine, then I play the bass on top. I then record the rhythm guitar. Sometimes I record the guitar solo first and then comp the rhythm on top of that (but this time it wasn't the case).

I must say that I was pleased with the overall final result. I think that having a real bass helps.

One of the reasons why I recently bought a bass was to improve my backings.

thanks.

P.S. my name is MaRin :D

Thanks, Scott! I like the clean on the Gibson for my strat and tele.
I need to play around with the clean on the mod more . . .

Thanks for listening and commenting, guys. I very much appreciate it!

Scott - Your tone and chops always blow me away. You and Marin should do a duet over this. You both have that great sense of dynamics and tension. Awesome as usual! :dude

Greg - Loved the laid back approach. (Of course, that's the only approach I have so it's comforting when someone else uses it. haha) Smooth cleans from that GA15RV! Very tasty jazz licks as well. :D

Marin - Great playing and really nice backing track

Fig - I really like your take, you're a really fine player.

Thanks, Joe and Fig! I especially appreciate the comment about "adding to the song." When I play to a tasty backing like this, it's always my intent to add to it rather than play over it. :)

Sorry, Marin,

Thanks for the info. Great job on programing.
Yes, real bass gives you more Life. You should do
this with just imagining the changes, sometimes
gives you more ideas on soloing.

Tri this ... listen to your solo without bass & comping.
You 'll learn more on your solo.

Thanks,

thanks Tomo,

I think that I did something similar on this track:

Doesn't go on for long, but its good enough for an intro.

You're welcome.
Yes that's kind of idea.

I think you are playing over I-7

These color...
11----------- b3 9 b3 9 Rt------------------

What I meant was... after you played with the
backing track (with more changes) or more
changes... to see solo itself contain chord
outline.. etc. It's cool way to check.

I usually record my solo with a metronome
clinic 2 & 4... then I work on my comping.
just a idea.
