Following is a short improv over a I-ii-IV-V in E Major, utilising just the Major Pentatonic, with a couple of other bits in there as well. Eventually will try to add the 4th and 7th from the Major scale to add a bit more flavour, and try to utilise some of the pentatonic highways I’ve been investigating, but just trying to bed down the mapping for now, and make some music with it. Just done with a phone and amp today.
Appreciate any feedback, tips etc.
Keep up leaening what you’re doing, you’re doing really well, you’re growing like a jekko… ,…No tips from me …
With Justin of course, ,great to learn that yourself, … follow all the bleus lessons .consolidate for a while and we / you can go into the grown up world
Off to bed then you… brevity could curb the crowds on the forum a bit… so if possible I try to do it like this… and no, I understand you there in the outback thinking about those kind of beasts all the time ,but i really mean jekko… i just looked it up and it’s a “town district” thing…not even where i live …it means …Hard/ very good hard/fast etc, all good things in this context
I’ve been waiting all day to have the opportunity to take a look and listen, Shane, finally! I was not disappointed.
For the most part sounded pretty good to me. A couple of moments in the opening portion just as you moved to the thinner strings where I thought either the notes were off scale or maybe clashed with the underlying chord when you hit the note … just once or twice.
Loved the slides, little curls, and the way you structured your phrases to ascend and descend. Extra bonus points for the ascending and descending runs using repeating intervals.
Sounds so good Shane! It’s so encouraging to me to hear you play and know that you are continuing to get better; keeps me motivated! Really well done. Like someone else, I could have listened to you playing for a whole lot longer!
That was so chilled and on point its set my mood for the day. You have obviously been working hard again and there are some really nice phrases and motifs in this piece. The tone also helps as it was perfect for the laid back BT. Good choice. I also sense a softer touch and attack in this one ? Or maybe you just backed the tone and volume down to achieve that. Really nice.
Actually throws me a dilemma ! After commenting on the tracks Richard added to David’s latest Blues post. The E Mixolydian BT I planned using for another lick link exercise, is actually crying out for something like this, so I might just explore that as well.
So thanks for the inspiration !
