The challenge is now open, and remains open for submissions until 11:30pm on 24th January 2018
Here's this month's backing track (you can download it from soundcloud). Record your solo over the top of it and then submit it to us.
Send your tracks (in mp3 format) to solos@theFB.co.uk
This is an attempt to create a track that sounds a bit 'Steely Dan'.
It's slightly tricky (at least it is for me) but I expect it will be 'walk in the park' for any jazz guitarists.
The aim is to get as many as possible involved. If we can promote discussion and help others to get involved then that's the most important thing.
Feel free to ask any questions. You can message me but you'll probably get the best answers on the forum. Everyone's in with a chance and often the simple melodic approach wins the day.
The chords are in a pdf at the link below, if you want to refer to them. Let me know if you have any problems and if you spot any errors or typos.
Voting will start soon after the submission deadline of 24th January 2018, with each voter selecting their 1st, 2nd and 3rd choice.
First choice gets 5 points - Second choice gets 3 points - Third choice gets 1 point
Voting will end on 11.30pm 31st January 2018
The order and scores of the three people with the most votes will be announced soon after the voting ends. Although it's not really about winning and there are no prizes. Think of it as forum team building, learning from each other
