    Excellent! Shredmaniac. My favourite take so far, great tone btw!

    @Russ : What do you reckon, am I taking this in the direction you intended at the start?

    @Russ : Thanks a lot =)

    Ok, here's my take on Ashc's progression. Had to use Mr. Brain a little more

    Thats excellent! Especially since the progression is difficult enough that you have to play the changes.

    I'm really chuffed that someone had a go at it as well. I need to try in the next couple of days to find enough time to come up with something. I think the solo is going to be a lot harder than the backing track!!

    I'm gonna ask a question and it might be a stupid one so don't shout !

    Where do you get the Fmin chord if the key is E Major ?

    I thought F#m would be the ii in E Major ?

    My theory is ropey so bear with me on this....

    Hey guys. Man! This is some good stuff!
    I've been so busy, I haven't had the time to do anything here. I hope I can soon, coz there's some killer stuff to work on.
    Cheers people

    Ok, I haven't participated in a stricktly a very very long time ago, so i thought i would try this one.

    The only problem is that I'm no jazzer, in fact I haven't ever played jazz in my life before. So my take is not more than random experimenting.

    But, hey, I just gave it a try.

    I did more of a theoretical approach to this one, so it's not a coherent piece, more like short passages of concepts of how to break down the ii - V - I-progression, so 8 isolated snippets with 2-3 bars of music. I'll try to explain the ideas below.


    I threw in a collection of "substitute licks" where I play over chord progressions not present, but interchangable with the ii - V - I

    ("imagined" progressions in paranthesis)

    1 : Straightforward E major (F#m7 | B7 | Emaj7)
    2 : Tritone substitute arps (F#m7 | F7 | Emaj7)
    3 : Double trit-subst (F#m7 - C7 | B7 - F7 | Emaj7)
    4 : "The Coltrane Matrice" (F#m7 - Gmaj7 | Cmaj7 - Fmaj7 | Emaj7)

    Then some other concepts:

    5 : Superlocrian scale over V
    6 : Minor Pentatonic shapes from different chord notes (as per this article by CJ)
    7 : Diminshed chord arps over V (as a V7b9 chord, really)
    8 : Scales derived from chords ( F# dorian and B mixolydian #5 (from B7#5))


    The change in tone comes from me having to turn off my amp and record direct because I was keeping people awake.

    Took a hit at your progression too, ashc, will have to come back to it, tho, since I'm by no means satisfied. Great fun, tho!

    Oh, that's some tasy playing and ideas!!!

    Any chance you can tab out some of those ideas for us? Equally for the Dorian one?

    Thanks.

    Yeah, I should think so. Will start on it now, but it might take a little while to finish, as I need to beat Chelsea off of the Premiership throne in FM...
