My jazz brilliance

Discussion in 'Recordings [BG]' started by Llama's Rage, Aug 6, 2005.

  1. Ok. I was bored so I recorded some improv over summertime chord changes. Ok there aren't even any chords (I broke a string on my guitar and only buy my strings every few months) but...you get to hear me walk! and solo over summertime changes.

    i was bored etc, i know a blazing 2 different scales, etc. Enjoy, and feel free to rip it to shreds here :p

    anyway, here you go- clicky

    You're playing a little too hard and metal-y. When doing a jazz solo over chord changes, it's not what you play, it's what you don't play ;). Just think smooth, light, legato.

    terrible advice. There are problems with the solo, sure, but to reconcile it by telling him to play legato is ridiculous. Either way, we chatted on aim, he knows what's up now, somewhat.
  4. yeah, i took a lot out of that AIM conversation, thanks WR.
    some highlights:

    (Wrong Robot): soloing is all just playing what you hear
    (Wrong Robot): if you're hearing something hip
    (Wrong Robot): it won't suck
    (Wrong Robot): technique and everything else
    (Wrong Robot): is just a means towards getting to where you can play what you hear
    (Wrong Robot): without any bottlenecks
    (Me): You're my hero
    (Wrong Robot): I reccommend spiderman
  5. i like it. The initial attack reminds me of summertime
