I was not going to submit to this contest until I realized how much it is parallel to what I've started doing with the beato book I recently purchased it. Since the two are related I have added the video here as a submission. Its longer then planned.. but I do all 7 chords. You don't have to follow them all. It starts off sluggish with the open notes on bflat but it gets better. Next week I plan to make a simple chord progression using the chords. If you want to suggest a progression for me to play over that'll be helpful. I could pick it myself.. but its more challenging if you pick it for me. I'll do the video of finding the scales I need with the chords from the progression. Then ill record it and solo over it and add that too. Thats basically my plans going forward. But for now.. you can watch me play the chords in the family. Big tip.. I am a FULL STEP down. Pg teaches you these same chords in c major standard tuning. (I'm step down g minor/bflat major)

  • decided with band material coming together quickly (waiting on lyrics right now) that I'd finally put the songs that I wanted on spotify up there. I've uploaded a rerecorded version of my first set of songs, and will upload the rest by the weekend. Then I'll slowly upload the newer ones and explain my thought process in those ones as they were written jamming many lessons on the site. gonna upload one of the newer ones to youtube now to give you something while you wait. you can find all the ones im putting up now on my reverbnation account that I'm debating on closing now that I have distrokid (sorry i cant adjust itunes price tho 9.99 is silly)

    Distrokid is better? What costs 9.99?

    Distrokid cost me like 35 a month for unlimited uploads. The download cost for you on i tunes to download is 10 tho.. I can't edit that without upgrading the account. So don't buy it there unless you wanna really help.me out lol.
    My live stream from the weekend. This is me looking for scales to play over 4chords. In this example it's bflat4. Refer to comments for more details.

    Long story short I realized that the 1 4 1 pattern of bflat shares the same notes as eflat major.. this tells me theorically I could get away playing the Eflat arpeggio.. or the c minor relative arpeggio. Correct me if I am wrong there. So in my improv I chose to stick to that scale for the most part. Arpeggio pentatonic and small shred sections with the whole cminor scale. I will explore further options as i go.

    The recorded version of the improv i made here be up tomorrow.
    Gah the debate of waiting til June for the afi album to release or listen to the singles as they go and not have the vibe the album is suppose to give when you hear it all at once for the first time. =/
    Check out this video "backtrack improv "
    My live stream jam today. Practicing a bunch of things in the stream.. and eventually recording improv 82 which will be uploaded probably later tomorrow. I did a 6 3 1 5 b flat run. But the jam is full of sweep work and im pretty proud of how far I've come there. As the night goes on they just got cleaner and cleaner.

    I also do a couple practicing of licks I've wrote to Ryan's drums...including a solo.
    Getting ready to jam another improv tonight to warm up for the weekends plans. I still need a chord progression suggestion for it.
    As it appears my buddy Ryan is back with me to try and write material together again. It looks like we will use the name dinner with the reaper. He gave me some drum tracks that I've added guitar parts to. We also have a buddy who will play guitar with me. While no centz will still carry out material this could become my main project going forward. I'd post the riffs but I don't wanna give too much away yet.
    Didnt actually do a video for a song this weekend. Some of the songs coming up dont really need a video so ill be skipping those for here. There will be a written blog its just too long to post here without taking up forum posts.

    2 years ago today I last saw avenged. Here's the album content. I'll add the videos in the comments

    Have decided that I won't post the blog links cause i dont think anyone is really going to them due to having to sign in. Id post them here if the status would fit 3500 characters. We need a blog feature here.
    Came across an article today from a local paper. This article contains a story of a house fire. The victims in the fire.. are the same people who robbed me of my guitars in 2019. Karma comes around full circle. You get what you give. Unrelated to the site.. cept for those you may remember this story.

    I have noticed that status updates can hold more characters. Is there now an unlimited amount of characters you can use? Cause I dont see it, and I think thats a great upgrade.
    When Day Turns To Night

    this weekend will probably contain another 2 of these due to the time I got off work tonight. I'll do the video tomorrow. While the structure of this song isn't your typical song its actually one of my favourites. For that reason. It's one of the first songs where I started to explore song structures that werent always the same patterns. im also trying to make them a little shorter. Last one was 20 minutes long.. so thats not bad considering the song was 6 minutes long. Let me know if I need to cut back more time. I can try to use smaller and less words .. but thats a very hard thing for me to do lol.

    I still don't have an account, is there only guitar music there? You doing another written blog?

    Im basically doing a written blog in reverb Nation and a video blog here explaining what I wrote. I see a lot fo students say they struggle writing songs. So im gonna show them what i did when I started (the ones you're seeing now) and how they were laid out. And eventually that will lead into the ones written with the help of the school. These ones don't really add up with theory perfectly but if you look past the theory side and look at the structure a lot of it makes sense. I didnotice you need a account to read the blog. They are free theres a premium too but im not here telling you to make an account. But my music is there for now. Looking for alternate routes for spotify. You can always pm me and I can always send files.
