Soaring the Winds/Working on guitar solos

Recommended Posts

Hi, it's been a while since I posted so I thought I'd show something off while I work on a large orchestral piece I'm taking my time on.

The drums, rhythm guitar, and bass, was from a free backing track I've found on Youtube; the lead guitar is what I've done (the part with the terrible quality haha)

The next one is where I am working on my guitar solos. I believe I hit one wrong note outside of the key of D Major (very noticeable) And I know there are a lot of random notes, I was freestyling...didn't necessarily write it down like I did the first one.

Nice to see you post again :)

How did you record your guitar?

I like your ideas, very good for improvised. Lots of good things, sometimes too much actually - I lost a sense of where you were going several times. Find one main point of climax and a few smaller points, then work everything else to serve those points.

Hope all is well,

Gustav Johnson

I recorded in the most unprofessional way possible by placing the mic in front of the amp...with zero guitar editing software which I am looking to change soon.

You cover a lot of good ground in the improvisation.. very nice.. Lately when I  put a solo on something..  I auto record/mute/create new track/loop

Do a handful of passes, sometimes the whole length of song, even if using in a particular section.. I've never really quite got where one's brain goes (or at least mine)  

when soloing..
