that makes good listening, lots of different tones and techniques.

I'm actually quietly proud to be involved (which is rare being a harsh slef critic )


so come on, who used Bb Major?


and who was more adventurous?

i know i know... i should be able to tell by ear
#11
Just listening to this now, and I've got to say one thing I've really enjoyed listening to is the varying levels of experience thoughout the 18 minutes. I've seen too many videos on youtube and the like where people are so good that you actually feel discouraged with your own playing.

I may submit something for the next jam

I like. I may join the next one, assuming I can get over my massive amounts of suck. Very well done, everyone that participated; I applaud you.

Quote by branny1982
so has everybody decided to keep their scales top secret?

I used Bb major only for my solo.
#17
I played Bb major I hit a few accidentals to get that exotic sound that I like.

I used mainly Bb major though I did use C aeolian a few times over the ii, not dorian What a rebel.


EDIT: Hopefully other bassists next time.

In another day or two I'll put up some example tracks. What I'm thinking of so far:

1) ii-7b5 - V7 - i-7 The typical minor jazz progress (and for you harmonic minor fans)
2) Machine Gun -- main bass line and some chords
3) G - F two chord vamp a la Greatful Dead
4) A Phrigian metal kind of thing -- just like 3 or 4 chords.
#23
Sounds great to me, I'd love to have a go at a metal type of thing, becasue I never play metal. I'd just love to see what would happen.

A rockier/more metallic one would be great, it would contrast nicely with this one which was very laid back. Thanks so much edg for doing tracks, it is much appreciated

Nice, I'd be down for any of those...I'm with sinan on the metal too, I never play it either so it would be interesting to see how that turns out
#27
i'd be up for doing a blues one, just for the fact that it is a simple progression, i'd like to see how everyone's take on it is.


either standard blues,

or something like stormy monday would be good.

that has some changes that are outside the blues norm but still stick to the blues feel.


i can supply a back track if needed.

I'd be up for something less bluesy as well. I have a hard time breaking out and tend to feel really subdued when I play blues.

thats a good thing for these types of things. since you have less notes to work with, it forces you to work harder. sometimes thats the best practice and lesson.

i'd really like to have stormy monday as the backing track for the next jam, only because i am really interested in how everyone approaches it. and i feel it is a perfect lesson for people.

I'd be up for something blusier too, we'll probably do both metally and bluesy tracks in the future, so we can do either next. I'm looking forward to it already

Oh by the way I used Bb major throughout my solo apart from one run which used lots of different scales (lydian dominant, lydian, some other stuff). That was just to create tension though
