By Electric Guitar Orchestra
Hi, my name is Luis and i´ve just started a new project: Electric Guitar Orchestra. The idea behind this is using electric instruments to recreate big orchestrations of classical music. I play all the instruments (included the intro song). Well, hope u enjoy and of course criticism is welcome. Feel free to comment or discuss about my first orchestration : "Winter" (Vivaldi).
Here´s the link:
I made little video about practicing classical influenced improvisation. I feel that classical music is part of our corner stone of music in every style. Bach’s Inventions and Paganini’s Caprices are familiar to many jazz guitarists as well to many heavy metal guitarists. Although player wouldn’t be fond of these styles I think that practicing classical etudes and improvisation is good both to technique and tonal language improvement. When I was making this video I got feeling that basic rules for scale to chord doesn’t always work. Sometimes it seemed to work mix different scales, or use only the first five notes of the scales. Sometimes scale is forming from three-note or four-note chord arpeggios with chromatic notes added.
If you are interested check out free tabs and backing track for this lesson from here: http://mikkokarhula.wixsite.com/mikkokarhula
I wanted to share idea how I mix scales in improvising solos. I like to take parts of scales and glue them into other scales resulting new feels. I think this is quite normal in jazz and also some ethno music allthought I don't know are players thinking that they are glueing scales together in ethno music. it might more likely be normal thing than studied to them.
I hope you like it!

Looks like i've missed out on what appears to be a great community. I'm an all round guitarist based in the UK currently focussing on fingerstyle and classical guitar. I hope to make a few posts in the forum shortly. For now here is one example
