Check it out. It is in my profile.

It was recorded with an RG570 (not mine), used only the neck pickup (PAF Pro) through a Laney VC50 (with 6L6's) on the clean channel. Don’t remember the settings... But I thought it just wasn't jazzy enough. I'm too happy with my improvising, I think I could have done a lot better and been a bit more interesting and creative. But hey, it was one take and I didn’t have time to do another.

If you have anything you'd like me to crit, I'd love to hear it.

Haha I really liked it. I think the guitar should be a little louder however. The drums and bass sounded pretty bitchin. Tell me what you think of some of my stuff if you could.

The drums and bass were a backing track

Thanks for the crit. I'll check your stuff out.

It sounds pretty awesome. Though i do agree the tone could be more jazzy. What did you use to record it?

It sounded pretty good, the tone kind of reminded me of a hollowbody played acoustically.

You should just work on connecting your lines and developing ideas, modal tunes can be hard to make interesting sometimes. One thing I can suggest is to transcribe some solos, it'll give you a lot of ideas.

Kudos for posting jazz.

Thanks for the replies

Not bad, Zeppelin's suggestions are pretty much what I was thinking. With modal jazz you are given the burden of "telling the story" with your solo, using the chords as a launchpad. You had a few good ideas in there, and you really start picking it up after the octaves. Overall nicely done.


Yeah I noticed my playing before the octoves at times seemed a little bit not confident. Like... Hesitant if that makes sense.

where did you get this backing track anyway?


I just got it from my guitar teacher.
