Pedal Contest Entry - Improv Solo

After 50 recorded attempts, here's my entry for the contest! I wanted to give improv another go since I really enjoyed seeing what worked and what didn't in the video I did months ago, but this time I wanted to try something a bit different! I started off on Lesson 20's overview of the Pentatonic Scale, and figured since it's the best scale for solos, I'd see what I could do! From there, I used the backing track from Lesson 21's overview of the C chord family, and springboarded into Lesson 2's Melody and Motif tips! This is where I got my main focus from - I wanted to try experimenting with rhythm, phrasing and spacing, as Syn described! I tried to give some of the notes more room to breathe, and add in a few more exciting bits and see what it created! It's not the most complicated, but I'm proud of it! And of course, the most important tip I took from all of this was to have fun with it and see what I could do! That allowed me to just create something I enjoyed and learn from it too!
I freaking love it ! The only thing I dislike is it ended right as you were really getting into it ! Lol I want to see more damnit !
Thank you so much!! My only problem was not knowing where else to take it, so I kept it short and sweet, but hopefully I can keep working on it or something similar and make them a bit longer!
