Slow and mellow melody, that gets more exciting in the middle and then calms down again. I really miss bass guitar on this kind of tunes. Too bad I don’t have a “bass machine” to play along with my drum machine.
I like this drum pattern and the melody came naturally as soon as I started playing with it.
One of the benefits of a scalloped neck is that slides are much easier to play, as fingertips do not touch the fingerboard.
Sometimes it is good to be alone. In music just the same. You can lead the melody and follow it at the same time, developing it much further. It does not matter where the melody takes you – there is no need to be afraid of uncharted grounds. You can make all the mistakes you want, change the rhythm , change tonality. You can pause and wait a couple seconds, catch your breath and then move on.
So much to say, so little time. One phrase follows another, abruptly interrupting it. In the end there is no one to listen to it all, and so the monologue concludes in falling asleep.
This is a fun melody! Sometimes when you start an improvisation a melody just develops itself accidentally from the first notes you play, and then you just have to follow it, adding variations and experimenting with it.
I really like staccato feel in this one and clean guitar sound – even the sound of the pick on the strings that my camera’s microphone is picking up.
I imagine wolfs howling at the moon when listening to this improvisation. Sometimes aggressively, sometimes full of sorrow, but always with a lot of hunger. When I played it, it seemed I could not get enough notes, wanting more and more. Slowing down in the middle, just to catch the breath, and then proceeding with more aggression (and mistakes – of course).
Classic C major scale, always sounds uplifting.
A short improvisation with very simple structure and very few notes that do not belong in a scale. Simple and fun to play.
Recorded late in the evening, I felt that rendering it in black and white serves the mood well.
This is more of a free improvisational style that I like to play. I am not concerned with any scales, modes, chord progressions, etc. The melody just flows freely. Any accidental note or a mistake is included in the melody like it’s supposed to be there.
Searching, but not finding.
I am jamming with some jazz drums pattern, and I could not quite figure out the melody. Trying different variations I am still failing to glue it all together. I still like some parts of this improvisation but my goal is to be able to let the melody flow naturally as a whole, not as a collection of some clever ideas.
I am playing around with a couple fun chords and some ideas sound interesting in this improvisation. However, one problem here is that I do not control the pressure of my fingers when changing the chords at this speed, and I press on the strings too hard, bending the notes randomly. It is one of the drawbacks of scalloped neck, but I really like it because it forces me to pay attention and play as accurately as I can.
Definitely something I have to work on.
