Here is a solo part from my music "Give Your Opinion Too..." This
solo was born at first by improvisation and afterwards I turned it into a
It begins in the key of Bbm dorian, with a Bbm arpeggio combining tapping
and bend. Then the key changes to the key of C#m and I play a pentatonic
lick using wah-wah pedal effect.
Again comes an arpeggio followed by a sequence of hammer-ons and pull-offs (a la
Joe Satriani) ending with a alternate picking scale. For this scale I used
upstokes, and I omitted the sixth interval. It sounds good for me
and we can use it in both dorian or aeolian scale.
I used an Ibanez RG760 model, plugged to a Zoom 3030 effect processor
outputting to a Peavey Bandit amp. For recording the sound from Peavey I used
a Beta 58A Shure microphone that is geared more toward vocal use, but it worked fine.
I made the MIDI sequences for the drums and the bass
parts using Cakewalk Pro Audio. After this, I recorded it and the rhythm and solo guitars in a Tascam
Portastudio 424, which is an analog 4-track recording studio.
