This is the 37th solo of the Month (SotM) Challenge and is being run by @stratman3142
The challenge is now open, and remains open for submissions until 11:30pm on 23rd June 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 (ideally in mp3 format) to solos@theFB.co.uk
Also, feel free to comment on how you approached the solo, which will add a bit more interest and maybe we can learn something from each other.

Discussion: Things are getting heavy this month.
The tempo is 110 and the chords are as follows
[E5 G5 E5 F5 : E5 G5 E5 Bb5 A5] x4
Stops: G5 : F5 : Bb5 : A5 (G)
Repeat the above
End On E
The backing track is 'very thick' so I've given it 6dB of headroom to add your solos. Add your solo and (as a guideline) try to avoid boosting the overall level beyond that if possible. That way the entries should be at roughly the same level and we won't get into loudness wars
Voting will start soon after the submission deadline of 23rd June 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 30th June 2018
The order and scores of the top three entries will be announced soon after the voting ends. If there are 8 or more entries, then the order and scores of those in the top half will be announced.
No prizes. It's just for fun.
It's not a competition.
