les paul to tube screamer to echo park thru univalve:
I will say that I can hear you playing scales HOWEVER, I can hear your sense of melody and I like it! The playing and ability aspect come over time, but as you may well know, a person can gain incredible chops and still not have a sense of melody and cohesiveness [spelling?]. It sounds as though you are on the boat! Keep sailing!! M.E.
I think I know why the scales are so pronounced, I nicked the backing from track 1 of this CD I have:
and the 1/2 hr. prior to recording the clip, I was making note of what scales sounded OK and which scales don't. I have no idea what key it is in, and my guitar is tuned 1/2 step down, so when recording, I didn't want to venture out a couple of known positions I knew sounded OK or I knew I'd likely hit a sour note.
With the drum machine patterns, I know what key it's in, and can explore quite a bit more before hitting a completely out of key note.
Ted, can you post this backing track for everyone?
This is one of the best thing I have heard you play.
here's the bt link: www.tedm.com/mp3s/backings/btbsotrk1.mp3
here's a tip, probably most folks here won't need it, but if your guitar is tuned down 1/2 step, playing a minor/blues scale at the 3rd and 10th fret works for me
I hear some "Cortez the Killer" in there.
I'd love to hear what other players takes are on this irregular beat piece!
Yeah, you spelled melody correct!
tedm, you've got a lot of heart and balls the size of Texas! Keep 'em coming!
Here's my take Ted. This was fun. I like this backing. I called mine Mohican Warrior because I am part Mohican
Excellent Weldaar!! Great thick tone and great phrasing. The first minute or so I was worried, I was only hearing weird new age sounds, not familiar guitar sounds But then it kicked in!!
They were supposed to be arrows flying through the air. LOL
loved your take...i simply dont know how you come up with this stuff.ihave a hard time with the days of the week!!
It's only gonna get better, I just ordered a Phase 90 with R28 mod on the innernet, plus I've been pondering this speed playing program that I also read about on the innerweb...
