OK ladies and gentlemen. It's time to break up with your significant other and grab a bottle of Jack Daniels (I drink Maker's Mark). It's time to think of that good ole dog you had to put down. Tired of "The Man" keeping you down? It's time to sing the BLUES!!!!! I want to hear your pain! Bare your soul a little. Make me want to cry. You'll need it for this month's solo. May's track comes again from Marc Seal. It's in the key of Em. I normally would start another thread with the chords but this is the classic 12 bar Blues. Unless I'm mistaken, the chords are Em7 - Am7 - Bm7. I didn't shorten the song as it's only 2:30 min anyway. Downloard Backing Track Here Download from here for Audacity I've created a group in Soundcloud called MLP Backing Track of May. Feel free to post your recordings here so the'll be all consolidated. Seemed like everyone enjoyed last month's so I hope you enjoy this one. It'll be interesting as the chords are very repetitive throughout. So I think part of the challenge will be keeping the solo from sounding repetitive. So have at it and most importantly have fun! 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.
