Thanks Mike...this is one nice track.....
@guitarsophist - Very nice clean tone and nice tremolo work. Well phrased.
@ASATKat - Stayed true to the original and a sweet tone. Nice!
@G-52 - Tremolo! It has an organ vibe to your sound, sounds psychedelic I quite like it a lot. Nice lines played and an enjoyable version.
@ghostchord -Your track reminds me of an old song by Chilliwack Fly at Night with those bends. Nicely played all throughout. I think guitarsophist is correct on the Key of A Major or in B Dorian.
@NWinther - The delay is very cool and lovely tone .You've made it your own, Niels. Sounds sweet.
It just means I won't post as many original backing tracks songs as I did in the last two weeks but business as usual in a manner of speaking or unless that's if you all want more to come like these, let me know
E Mixolydian I think. The major 7 doesn't fit in there.
Look at the chords and E Mixolydian.
E F# G# A B C# D E
Bm – B D F#
A – A C# E
E – E G# B
@Peegoo I like your straight-forward take on this one. Solid playing.
@guitarsophist Great take. Nice nod to the original while still making it your own.
@ASATKat Super cool take! I like the embellishments on the melody. You added some really cool new licks in there too.
@G-52 I like the trem/vib effect you've got there. Really fun interpretation.
@ghostchord Astute observation about the chords and key - I'm glad you trusted your ear. I hear some really cool ideas in your playing. It sound like you're telling a story with your guitar.
@NWinther Super cool take on this. That delay really adds some atmosphere. Creates the perfect mood as I enjoy my snus and coffee while watching the rain outside my window this morning.
Really liked the take. Tones, phrasing, space and air in between rhythms and melodies, overall mood.
Two in a row is enough for me for quite some time.
Haha, thanks mate! Ruisleipä, salmiakki, sauna, Sibelius
I want to develop my understanding of scales, accuracy, timing and melodic skills. But in the mean time, this is what comes out.
I tend to think in 'parent' keys. We have the F#, C#, and G# making the 'parent' A Major.
I lean toward Dorian because this song sounds more minor to me. It does seem like everything resolves to E so I don't know. But, as long as I have the 'right' notes I don't get too hung up on how theory explains it.
Wait. Is Sweet Home Alabama in the key of D or in G?
It's not as if I thought about it before I played it but it certainly goes home to E. I'm not correcting anyone just illustrating how the tones seem to fit since there was discussion about the key.
This song seems particularly nebulous.
I wan't implying that you were correcting anyone, I apologise if I came off that way. I was meaning to illustrate that we all figured out the appropriate notes in the key.
What is this key thing everybody talking about
I didn't think you were.
After trying both B Aeolian and
B Dorian, I have to say B Dorian worked the best.
I think that Mjark's analysis is pretty consistent with what my fingers ended up playing. I started out thinking Bm, but quickly discovered that the G wouldn't work, and then continued to adjust. It does resolve, sort of, to E, but it does feel minor, so everybody's right. However, the whole song is designed to be unstable, from that first lick, which is an open B hammered onto the F# at the seventh fret. That is so cool.
Thanks to John Jarvis for the wicked piano.
Yes Mjark, that looks good, basically the parent key of A.
However, when performing this song I would want to end on Bm, so I would say it's a song in B minor Dorian or the iim. Bm is the strongest resolution or final point of rest making it,
E the IV to Bm the im.
What other songs have that motion? Ending on the iim? Weird.
Anyway, that's how I played it.
All songs in the key of life.
