Re: Original F Minor Backing Track

Finally this old lazy git manages to at least try something with this F minor BT. :roll: I felt a bit weary (must be all this hard work of being retired :big_smile: ), so I've just used a VST plug in amp - BC Free Amp on a kind of Clean Drive type setting. Plus a wee bit of reverb. I've done verses ...

Re: A real great lesson given to us fy JM

:thumbsup: Thanks for posting.

Only listened to about a quarter of it so far, but interesting - especially interesting is the sounds he gets.

If only my tired old brain could keep up with what he is demonstrating! :big_smile:

Looking at those collabs is on my to do list and is round about the top of it, so hopefully ...... :whistle:

You're right about the 3 guys! Can't beat a good slow blues, and that one is very good. :clap:

Re: Open for Collab, Slow Blues in G

Beautifully played Tytl and a great fit to go with Fensons playing.

Sorry it's taken me so long to hear this / comment on it. The last couple of weeks have been very, very, very busy.

Re: Goldtop P90 for a G Blues

:clap: Beautiful sounds fenson.

So many electric guitars sound so much better when stock pickups are upgraded.

I guess the type of sound most guitar builders think players want doesn't suit old style blues and good music.

Re: Original A Minor Blues Backing Track

Very nicely done Tytl - a very tasty BT and all your own work. :clap:

I will have a go at this for sure. Best when I'm sober though!!!! :roll:

Re: Original F Minor Backing Track

Nice work Tytl!!! :D Hope you are safe and well in these strange and troubled times. I'm hoping to have a look at trying something with this backing track soon. With having retired from work last Thursday :banana: I'm hoping I'll find a few extra minutes a day for musical activities. Just picked up ...

Re: EPS Navigator test

:clap: Fine piece of slide playing fenson - lovely tone!

By the way Blind Boy is fine. Currently home up in the snow in the New Mexico mountains.
I think they've until fairly recently been on a very long tour round parts of the USA.

Re: Open for Collab, Slow Blues in G

Glad you both thought it passed the inspection! :thumbsup:
It felt a bit weird playing an electric, and also playing in standard tuning.
I must dip more into this sort of thing when i become a man of leisure.

Re: Open for Collab, Slow Blues in G

So, I seem to have been motivated by my earlier visit to the forum to pick up an electric guitar (Hagstrom Viking Deluxe) and play. Probably the first time for 6 months for an electric! I started once I remembered the wiring connections for the SCXD amp and the Weber Micromass. Not to mention where ...

Re: Soloing over non-blues progressions

Way back I found that practising over non-blues progressions helped to expand my musical range, and also to suss out new scales. I think it did help general fluency too. So I would tend to seek out backing tracks that were in specific modes - Natural Minor, Dorian, Phrygian, Ionian, Mixolydian, Lydi...

Not blues I'm afraid. But a song full of feeling and emotion, sung and played with great sensitivity. https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=E-z7M3FZv4E Shame the end of the video wasn't properly trimmed and there's a few notes kick in of something else. One of my favourite live DVD in my collection is one...

Re: Open for Collab, Slow Blues in G

I've kept meaning to try something with this idea and then another weeks gone by. :sad: Still working (food industry) and despite the lockdown I seem to have even less time than usual. 30 April sees my last day before retirement. Maybe I'll get a chance after that?? Apologies for my absence from the...
