An improvisation with major chord scale notes over a soul blues progression in G major.

This is first my attempt to improvise in this way.
Maybe more jazzy than bluesy.
What do you think?

Sounds nice! I like the backing track and the melody. It does indeed sound a bit more jazzy -- it is more "refined" and not as "earthy" as I expect blues to be (in other words, it is more smooth than blues, less edgy). But, it still sounds nice; maybe cross genre.

If I were to think of one thing that could have made it better: the melody really dominates; it might have been nice to break up with either some scale runs or some chord based bridge to give it some variety.

Hi Kalle,

I like it, It sounds like something you'd have heard in a strip club 30 or so years ago, cool, good rhythm great melody

Immature? Of course I'm immature Einstein, I'm 50 and in a Rock and ROll band.

Thanks guys for the good words.

Vink, you are are rignt, its bit repetitive.
But I was so glad when the melody parts and new notes just formed up one by one during repetitions. I think a did 5-10 repetitions before I did the recording.

Hum, heard 30 years ago in a strip club.. could be , when I was in my early twenthies, haha

I used the Soul Blues in G (3.25 mb) backing track found on http://www.jam.1gb.ru/mpjam_blues.html .
