    this is a cool solo over a looped backing track that might be cool to checkout too.

    Wink Why this is a amazing idea

    i confider myself pretty musically intelligent, i take lessons, and practice all day, music is where my heart is at, and the other day my guitar teacher told me that he has a repertoire of songs that he can just play and knows the chords, and the scales that he uses to solo over them and knows those songs realllly well, and he said that now he can just listen to each song and know like for example, oh, that a dorian mode that the guitar player is using to solo over or thats a m pent scale...... and he said that he just developed an ear for knowing what is going on theoretically in a song, he told me this in response to my question, "what is a great way to tell how to solo over a jazz song" and know we have this thing called iJam, and this is exactly what people need, a convenient place to look up how to solo over songs, and become more familiar with soloing over more than just a m pentatonic scale ALL THE TIME (which personally i have become rather sick of doing) i guess what im saying is that this is a GREAT way for all of us to develop this 'ear' for us to just listen to a song and go "oh thats a whatever that hes doin' there"



    the only thing that i disagree with is that i think that is shouldn't be a poll in deciding what song we do next, i think that people should just post a thread in the following format - "iJam -Song Name" and then those who wish to or know something about that song they can contribute...

    iJam is a great idea!
    i hope it sticks!!!!!!!

    I would really like to talk about an acapella song.

    http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=rHl0zuV2cw4

    The usher medley by Committed.
    It has some fancy chords and also modulations. And it would be cool analyzing the different voices.

    The acapella version of Lets stay together by Al Green would also be a fine pick.
