    Default Friendly Solo Contest 2

    Alright folks, you asked for it!

    https://soundcloud.com/kamandasd/sd-solo-contest-2-v1
    *(Please note I need to make a quick tweak to the mix, esp the distorted guitar...made some bad decisions with fatigued ears, but this will get you started!)*

    This one is a little disjointed but I wanted to add a little variety:

    A - Clean section in Em (Em - C - Em - C - D - C)
    B - Rockin' in Em (Em - D - C - Am - Em - D - C - D)
    C - Let's go Major! (G - D - Em - C)

    For those not all about the alphaghetti's ... just rock out in Em.

    --------------------------------------------------------
    Gear:

    Guitar: Squier Standard Fat Strat with SD Custom8/'59 (it's my only axe currently in standard)
    Bass: 80's BC Rich NJ Eagle with SD SPB-3's
    AMP (clean): BIAS FX
    AMP (Dist): ADA MP-1 (Michael Wagener Preset) into Two-Notes torpedo Wall of sound for power tube emulation and speaker iR (Lynchbacks) ... And an H910
    Interface: RME FF800
    Drums: EZ Drummer 2

    And don't you worry folks, I already have the third backing track so we won't have to wait nearly as long!

    Enjoy!

    Interesting.
    Now I just have to figure out which guitar that I want to tune up to E standard.

    Why do you have to retune?

    It's called D- standard.
    People play metal in it.

    Cos he needs to hit the high E in the 24th fret at the end of the solo. Clearly.

    And the play along clip is in E.
    What am I supposed to do? Use a capo?

    Oh, I suppose I'll just transpose.
    Careful what you wish for.

    It's not transposing to play the correct notes. I know all the notes in D standard. So box 1 for E minor starts on fret 2 and 14. Just giving you a little friendly dose of logic since you invented it and all...

    Let's not dilute the purpose here. Don't matter what tuning you're in as long as you're playing the right notes! I just don't use an Eb tuned guitar because the one fret difference throws me off...D standard I'd just pretend I'm in F#!

    Play on!

    Kamanda, thanks for putting this together! I really felt the transition to G Major

    I hope I get my stuff together to record something.

    As did I.
    I just played unplugged with the tracks playing on my cell.
    I haven’t mapped it out and worked on any melodies but I gave it a quick play-through.

    Oooh, cool. I've listened to the track a couple times and it looks like fun. I'll try to get something recorded tomorrow.
