I installed new flat wound strings, something I never tried before on a Stratocaster, and I am loving it! I decided to spend some extra time and record this improvisation through computer, instead of my camera microphone, to make it sound better. Unfortunately my video and audio recording have different sample rates so they are out of sync with each other. After spending a couple hours with I could not figure how to fix it, so I will have to work more on this in the future.
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).
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.
