|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.
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?
|also, any other ideas are welcome for this duel...|
How long u gonna give me to prep and whaat is the genre, i vote a non metal it can be rock jazz blues anyhting but metal< hows about it?
|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.
|whos gonna do this?|
it´ll be fun as hell.
|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. |
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.
END RANT: Sorry...
|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?
then lets duel. we dont have to use this idea, im down to play some guitar.
what do you have in mind?
|just the b string huh...sure, lets do it.|
|hey mike...set it up with your mp3 and ill come up with something by tomorrow or the next day...it being memorial day and i have to pig out on bbq food and beer...heh. |
|Alright... Duel posted. |
Have at ye!
|If nobody gets on that by tonight I might give it a shot.|
|witch one...the penta idea or the one string? |
|Um... oh, I think I was referring to the one string duel that Mike has posted up but I am into the pent thing as well. I´ll probably chump it and not post anything tonight anyway. But maybe tomorrow.|
|hell ya...do it up main! |
Id like the same back track u are gonna use my email is email@example.com
And Lets Just Make the progression in the key of E maybe but in any fashion that would fit the back track, whether its 1-4-5 or 1-6-7-6-1 i dont not care
|ill post it tonight probably late...|
and i will send you an email of the tracks...
what are you using to record with man?
|dude...i went out to where me and my buddy have a studio, and recorded my duel track...and FORGOT TO BRING ANY CD´S!!!!!!!|
so i will post it tomorrow.
|Hey no rush man... Take your time |
|Just A simple line 6 backtrack so the quality will be decent but not perfect, what format do the uploaded files have to be in??? |
|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
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...
|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.
trust me, you´ll have a lot of fun with this one.
|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.|
|Well, either way is cool for me. I sent my email to Pizzle.|
|i´ll send the files out tonight for sure.|
it will be late cuz i got a gig...
|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...|
|i can post this duel more than once...just for fun´s sake.|
so if you didnt get to duel this time let me know.
ill accept any friendly competition that comes my way, after all im just a student of music trying to learn from my peers, and im pretty competitive ha ha ha ha... .
|I´ll play you in G pentatonic/blues scale solo-type thing.|
Woah Cool! 100th post in this forum
