Alriiiiiighty then folks!

It's time for the fourth music challenge!

So, as before - you'll have to choose a number between 1 to 10

And whatever number you choose I will PM you a linked video - this video will be a backing track for a random genre! I want YOU to express yourself over this backing track!

I can provide MP3s for every backing track listed if you want it.

Once we're done this time we'll do a vote to see who's improvisation was the best!

The winner will receive... hmm... Karma?

Maybe we can all choose what the winner will get before we start - that way it'll be more fun!

Yeah, change of plans - instead I'll just give you the backing track via MP3. So PM me your e-mail addresses please guys!

No real way of recording guitar right now and I have to fix some issues with my rig so I can't do this one.

However I am curious about whether these competitions are cyclic cause I saw the first one and thought if that was going when I was a member I woulda loved to do it.

Just thought I'd throw that in there.

Yeah, I do new music challenges every few months- I'm doing this one when everyone can since it's the summer I figured more of us would be able to play.

Coleman suggested we do solos over similar backing tracks - so yeah.

Right! So each of you have your tracks by now, right?

Should we say the time limit is something like 1 week from now...

That way you all have enough time to do what you need to do to make it satisfying. :)

Yeah, but it's a home project, so for one week you can do as many takes as you like and choose your favourite. :) Have fun with it!

That's what music's all about.

Cool beans. Done and dusted.

Now, are we going to talk about what the winner gets or is that just something that no one really cares about? (Not fussed - overall glad people are participating!) Thought it might be something to motivate people a little bit more though!

What do you guys think?

on there facebook,twitter,google+.....myspace i guess,whatever
they have,just share stuff about the winner for a day,or even
A single post. Just a thought.

@ Emp - niiiiiiiiiiiiice!!! Very good stuff dude! A very smooth tone, too! I like the distortion change, half way through. Good melodic phrasings, too. :) Actually, your distorted tone reminds me of the "Go, Johnny, Go" track.

And that was a fast posting!

Awesome job dude. :)

@ GS - that's such a shame dude, was really looking forward to hearing yours! Why not post whenever you're ready? No real rush or anything.

Okay here's mine. I got a latin-style backing track. I recorded it with my phone (which I'm lucky to have, because it has better sound than my camera) so that's why it's at an awkward angle. Sorry about that. :p

Nice improv there dude. :) I would think about timing though - count the bars for the track and the intro... 4 to 8 bars in and then start the improv would be perfect - Timing is essential.

Your melodic phrasing is very cool though dude :) Definitely keep those licks alive!

Mosh: That was awesome. How did you get your guitar tone? It matched the track pretty well.

Thanks man. I recorded the BT into Cakewalk then the guitar through a POD xtlive (clean with delay/reverb). It allowed me to mix both with separate faders.
