check it out.
for the longest time i have always heard..."it doesn´t matter how many notes you can play, its how you use the notes" and to an extent that is true.
so unlike the battles ive seen on here before, i think it would be interesting to maybe set down some rules.

like
one: pick one major or minor scale or mode to stay in for the duration of the song.
two: find a common cord progression that you both have to use, like a control in an experiment...and so on and so forth...
it doesn´t have to be penta but its just an idea.
do i have any takers? Huh

well, preparation for this should not take long...
how about we chose a standard 6 2 5 progression, like a blues/jazz thing and go from there...
if you need accommodation i can provide a backing track with drums and guitar and bass and shoot the tracks in a email...
or, you can make your own, just an offer.
all we need is a key.
i say the progression should be, 1-#1-1-4-1-6-2-5-1-aug4, or something like that, just so its not completely a bland progression.
but its totally up for discussion, so let me know what you think. Thumbs Up

I´m up for a duel but it will have to be with a track I already have recorded. I will not be able to record unit I reload windows.... Long story short my A/D converter is messed up and I have not been able to record for about two months.

START RANT:
CursingCursing
This problem has happened once before and reloading windows fixed it but my recording stuff is connected to a computer that is also used for a lot of my web stuff so fixing this means a day of loading software packages setting up environments and a whole BIG thing so I´ve been doing without recording abilities, which also means I have to wear headphones when I want to here audio because my speaker are connected to the mixer and computer needs the A/D converter to the connect to the mixer.
Cursing Cursing
END RANT: Sorry... Smile

I got one...


I recorded this a while ago, the idea was to create song where the lead line was entirely played on the B string.

How about that challenge?

16 or 24 bit digidesings tracks...or pro tools format 24 bit.
but, all that i need to do is burn the cd, convert it to mp3 on this computers i tunes, and post.
i have no internet where my little studio is, thats what made me a little upset. lol Wink
to send the consolidated tracks to you all i need to do is have some sort of info disk, like a dvd r. and shoot you the one file. then you can just play along...so just hold on, i made a list of erins to do today and ill have it up by sundown... Thumbs Up

Is this backing track gonna be downloadable from somewhere or can you just email it? I´d like to get into this. It´s gonna take multiple duels I think.

my probation officer called me today and said they didn´t have some document and i had to spend all day f@#*ing with those assholes...so i didn´t get to go over there....but,

i will just send the files in an email to everyone who wants them, since i have no domain to post them.

give me your email, if i don´t already have it and i will send it to you tomorrow.

I decided on a jazzy little cover of Wind Cry´s Mary, its a little slower and very pentatonic friendly...its in G. the chord progression allows you to play in major, or minor penta. Thumbs Up
trust me, you´ll have a lot of fun with this one. Guitar

You can upload the file through the media manager onto GKN and post the link here if that is easier. THe only restriction you would be faced with is the file has to be under 3 mb.

Nice. I think I´m gonna do that single string ´tar lead too since no one stepped up. In fact, I might record it tonight even though I´ll be at work all night. I should start a new thread about my new toy. I think I will...
