Taso,

I guarantee you won't be the last one to finish. That honor usually belongs to me. :wink:

Also, staying in college is much more important than a quick turnaround on a jam!

Good luck with mid-terms,

Steve

sounds like B to me indeed, eh guys? Although I find that A, B, F# and E minor pentatonics will all work, imo.

I have a question, as this stuff is all new to me and I don't have enough training. What is the key of this backing track? Hopefully one day I'll be able to figure it out on my own.
thx

Good question, and yes, if I'm not mistaken, this track is in the key of B.

With most songs, especially rock songs, if you can figure out the name of the 1st chord in the song, that is usually what key the song is in. Try it with this track, play the track, and every time the 1st chord in the measure plays, go up & down the notes on the low E string until you find one that sounds the same. Just takes alittle parctice & your ear will start to hear it.

Good luck,
Dan

Thx for that tip. I tried the E string trick and it definitely seemed when I hit the B note it seemed to fit. But if I played a B major scale there seemed to be notes that didn't sound good. If I played Bm pentatonic it seemed to flow with the track. So I played the D major pentatonic and that seemed to fit (I guess it should as it's the second position in Bm pentatonic). I assume a full D major scale should also fit.
Does this seem correct that this could be in D major and it's relative Bm?
Or do I just have a wooden ear?

No rush Taso, take your time. I've been working on my part a little, but still not done with it yet.

I tried to lay down some tracks this weekend, but I've been having computer problems. Suddenly there is a lot of noise when I'm recording and playing back. I think it has to do with my ASIO settings, but it's all a bit strange since I recently took part in another jam and everything was fine. In any case, I hope to solve the problem and then I'm going to try to complete something this week too.

I did my part, just gotta get it out in the right formats and such now, and for what its worth, I still have no clue what key this is in. I used mainly the Bm pentatonic though.

I just emailed you about the formats Taso. I'm also using Bm pentatonic, but trying to throw in alittle Em pentatonic, and some D major too. We'll see if it works...

Thanks for the update Steve, hope you get your pc problems fixed. I'm having some issues as well. I just got a new pc, and when I record, the sound level of my part is really low, even though I've maxed out the settings for the microphone on my pc & in Audacity. I may have to record with my old pc because I can't seem to fix the problem.

Hope everyone is having fun! :D

Dan, oddly enough, I've been having the same problem. What I did was copy and paste my part into a different audacity window, use the compressor, and then if needed 'amplify'. Umm, but I wanted my part a little quiet anyways.
