Practiced rhythm and first solo 3 hours.  What fun.  Using the sound slice tech was awesome. Made serious headway into the solo. Interesting to note that the passion I have leaks through in my interpretation of the notes!!

Just read Roberts comments on another thread re: vocabulary and improvisation.  Hit the nail on the head,  I have some skills in this area but want to learn how to really articulate and make it "talk" and sing!!!

Here is an effort at the first solo.  I

double tracked it and recorded using SONAR.  Exported as FLAC and converted to mp3 for upload.  Though

ts and suggestions greatly appreciated.

Now that's the way you do it, jump in, record and post!  Nice playing, Craig, especially on the bend vibrato and other little touches that bring the solo to life and mark it as yours.  Thanks so much for sharing an posting.  

Encore!

That was really fantastic. Double tracking your own solo? Wicked.

I guess I misunderstood the double track reference...

Craig, did you record the solo over the backing track twice? Interesting! I thought you meant two tracks... 1 backing track and 1 solo track!

Thanks everyone, very uplifting.

I found it easy to play whilst following the TAB. Different story without it.  Timing issues,  mostly when to jump in at the next phrase.  (does that make sense?)

Yes Chris, I played and recorded the solo twice.  kinda gives it a fatter sound.

Now solo 2 may take a little while as it is quite challenging (for me at least).  I have found the T-bone scuffle backing track to be a lot of fun to improvise over so I'm thinking of making a video of that.  Would love some creative feedback and advice.

2 hours to various backing tracks.

Had a crack at reconsidering blues,.  Got me thinking about how short simple licks can be so powerful.
