I got a little carried away, explaining why it's a 2 minute solo

and also could anybody tell what other scales could I switch to from
D Harmonic Minor?

and could I possibly get some responses this time?

Well, when it comes to messing around, don't just think of one scale, even though that might be the key, mess around and create multiple values. So since you've made this D Harmonic Minor, switch to D Natural Minor, D Melodic Minor, etc. It works better with a background though. So add some chords and that way you'll also know how to justify your solos instead of just frisking up and down the fretboard.

Your solo is good, but it's nothing but speed. Even the greats slow down during their solos; they give it feeling. As fun as it is to be a blur, come back down and tell us things through your music.

I thought it sounded pretty cool, but Jazz is right. You could be playing a number of scales that fit in that tonality. When I first started playing all I wanted to do was play fast and then when I finally could shred my ass off, I realized just how boring it was. I think it sounds much better to have a slower tempo so people can actually consciously hear the notes you're playing. Not to say I don't play fast, I love playing fast, but not for an entire solo. Try it out, just pour your heart out.

Try playing a harmonic minor over a major progression i.e. play D Harmonic Minor over an F major progression, or visa versa, play F Ionian over a D Harmonic Minor progression.

thanks guys

I know I do need to slow down but I can't really slow down 'till I get
a new recorder.
I was looking into the Boss/Roland BR-600

the one I have right know won't let me change drum tracks in the middle of a song.

We're not talking about slowing your drum track down man, we're talking about slowing YOU down.

well doesn't the drum track have something to do with that?

cause with the drum track I used there I don't even know how to play slower with that.

You can play half eighth, quater and halfs notes instead of playing 16th and 32nd notes. For example you can being playing a riff with a half time feel while the drummer is still playing it double time.

when i started, i didnt really cared about it.. then i only cared about creativity and originality.. now my technique isnt as good as id like.
still, i enjoy playing and thats what its all about, or who plays when he doesnt want to

anyway. page's solos arent all that damn fast but still he makes me feel the solo
