    This month were keeping our guitars tuned to Eb and sliding up to the Ab minor scale for a little Hard Rock action.

    MLP February 2019 BTOM

    Here is the BTOM mantra:

    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.


    Sorry for getting started late this month. So finally, Let the fun begin!

    Sorry to hear that Ken, I hope your fingers get better soon. Hang in there and you'll be plucking away in no time!

    Nice work fella's, class all the way! Looking forward to hearing a lot more this month....

    That's a real bummer Parts, you thought about maybe trying some slide?

    Please don't refrain Otter, always enjoy your takes!
