    Is it the third month of doing this already??? Yes it is. Well here we go.

    This track is a bit more rockin compared to last month. It's got a nice bridge. It get's a little repetitive but I think there's enough space there in 2 min for you to lay some really cool licks down. This track is courtesy of Marc Seal once again.

    It's in the key of Em. I'll post a link to a separate thread to discuss the chords and structure. http://www.mylespaul.com/forums/gui...acking-track-chord-structure.html#post5176813

    June MLP Backing Track

    Note: Soundcloud will only let you set up one group at a time. If someone wants to set one up and post the link we can consolidate there. i'm already at my limit.

    If anyone has any issues downloading, let me know. It may take me a couple of days to get you a different format.

    If this is your first time, here are the guidelines.

    What is it?
    Every month I'll post a new backing track. It can be from any genre.
    Download the track and record a solo over it.
    Post your solo here along with what gear you used, recording equipment, and effects added. The more description you give the better.
    I'm going to try and keep the backing tracks to under 2 minutes. Anything more is too daunting. Feel free to shorten it even more.
    Try to get your recording in by the 3rd week of the month. We'll start over each month.
    I'll take ideas on backing tracks so if you have a request, let me know.

    Why do this?
    Because it'll be fun!
    I think this will be a great way to share ideas and see how each other interpret a piece differently. It will also be a good way to share recording techniques and receive overall feedback on our playing if we desire it.
    This is NOT a competition!!!
    Majority of people on here post great feedback in a helpful constructive way.

    "But Bluto I'm scared!!!"
    Look, I get it. Many of us are insecure about posting any of our own playing online. This is a safe place. I'm no guitar god. Keep it fun and I bet you'll learn a thing or two. If you're still unsure, read this: The Man In The Arena. Don't be that cold timid soul.

    Great track! Looking forward to listening to this month's inputs... Incredible talent on these forums.

    Tip of the hat to Marc Seal for a well written, played and solid backing track... Nice groove.

    It's too hot out here Today to go outside so this seemed like a fun thing to work on. This may not be my last go at this but here's my initial track. I meant to stay more melodic but the secret shredder in me wanted to come out and play :laugh2::naughty:

    You need to start posting what beverage sponsored this recording. :thumb:

    Loved the opening riff. Should be a song of its own.
