I have a few backing tracks available for a jam.
Different styles.

I'd love to host a jam but can't decide which one to start with.

Have a listen here: http://www.soundclick.com/tc1backing
and let me know which one tickle your fancy, if any.

Some good BT's there Yves, thanks!

I really like the "Relaxing" one, and the "Suspense" one. Kinda different & jazzy feeling to them. 8)

I may be up for doing a part if you host a jam. :D

OK then.
I'll prepare for one.
I'll start with the slow one and submit Relaxing for the jam.
Stay tuned! :)

I was just wondering that about the Flower's Dream BT. I might be able to figure it out once I start playing around with it, but if you happen to know off the top of your head.....

[edit: thinking this one may be in F# pentatonic minor, but not certain of that]
[edit 2: or Bm pentatonic? Or maybe it's changing keys back and forth, I can't figure it out ]

Well, since I'm no theory master, I'm not sure if I'll get it right every time.
I can surely tell you what 1st chord each starts with (which is usually the key, if I'm not mistaken)
I'll work on it an post'em in here.

Don't start pulling out your hair Margaret.
The intro is E2 and Em with the bass note as a B. (4 bars)
Then the 2 main chords on this one are Em and F#m.(8bars)
Followed by the 2nd section Em, A, Bm, Em (4 bars, 2 beats each chords) and then A for 2 bars.
The 3rd section is C#m7, G#m, F#m, B,C#m7, G#m, F#m, F#m(8bars) then A, B, B4 (3bars), B (2beats), B4, B (1 beat each)

I'm using the software Band In A Box to generate the backing track and the chords E2 and B4 are what it gives me but I'm not too sure if it is their proper musical name. Some theorician might want to verify that for us?

Thanks, TTCO!

We've also been discussing A Flower's Dream over on the Music Theory forum (my thread about Does this scale exist?), and without yet checking it with guitar in hand, it appears what you're saying coincides with the conclusions over there.

Fretsource says a Dorian scale works with the Em sections, so I'm still absorbing all that. :D The info you've provided should help quite a bit.

I'll post the chords in your Music Theory thread and see what the "masters" have to say.
This is very interesting, it will help me understand a bit more what I'm doing.
Thanks for pointing it out to me.
