View Full Version : can i get some help?

hey, i was wondering if i could have someone help me here, i have this idea but before i do anything i need an acoustic arpeggio rhythm, something kinda melodic, that i can put a kind of solo over, something like fade to black by metallica, like, even if i can get just a little part to work with maybe? i haven't been able to get anywhere with this. :(

start with like an E-minor arpeggio?

04-01-2008, 12:07 AM
um, like a low one, or a high one?

A low one could set the mood rather then a high one.

alright thx dude, hey i was thinkin, maybe we could like do this together, like a joint effort, between us two and get this done, my idea was to do like a mix of orchestra and rock into an intense composition, and the beginning would be the acoustic arpeggio with a little solo, what do ya say?

Hey i'd happily help out. :)

Here's how I'd approach it. Taking cues from the template as provided by "Fade to Black" et al, arpeggiated acoustics and a somewhat eerie solo. Given per the description I tried to operate within a rather Hammet-ish framework, but less heavy on the pentatonics, more about targeting chordnotes to give the melody some kind of direction.

If you like it, you can go from there, otherwise thanks for the well-spent 15 min of jamming fun I had.

haha, wow. that last one was an intense upgrade. :p:

I might help out with this sometime, but I don't have time right now.

alright, this was a little attempt to get started right after the beginning solo, its a really small part i just need to know if its good and i should keep going with it.
