Ok, so my band have been asked to play a really cheesy song for a charity gig, so we've chosen to do 'baby one more time' by britney spears.

We're essentially doing the bowling for soup version, but slightly faster and punkier.

It's sounding really good so far, but i've recently been persuaded to do a solo for it. The only problem is i usually do pretty bluesy solos, and this id definitely not a bluesy song.

I'm looking for advice on how to go about constructing a solo to fit the song - what modes to use, the kind of techniques which should be in there etc.

The chord progression goes Bm (1 bar), F sharp (one bar), D (one bar), E (1/2 bar), Fsharp (1/2 bar) so as far as i can tell it's some kind of B minor?

Any help would be great!

August Burns Red's version - no solo, but I think it's good
They made me do push ups in drag

I'm gonna have a really hard time if we're both cannibals and racists.

britney spears? seriously?



It's for charity, and we were asked to do something cheesy and fun, so yes.

I did try just doing bluesy stuff, but it sounded a bit crap to me. I'm gonna try starting with the vocal melody, the develop the solo from there.

B natural minor, you could noodle around or follow the main melody.


Are you sure it's not F#m? That would make more sense.

That would make it B dorian then.

Let's look at this:

Bm = B D F#
F# = F# A# C# (F#m = F# A C#)
D = D F# A
E = E G# B

line the notes up in order:

B C# D E F# G# A (A#?) B (you could get rid of that A# if the chord was F#m)

= B dorian.

Meh.... I've done that before too. You know.... calling melodic minor a harmonic minor or something. Happens to all of us.
