Several months ago i started a guitar challenge on Audio Forum http://www.newgrounds.com /bbs/topic/893458
I made several backing tracks, all metal , now it's time for change, have a funk backing track :)
You may download it, record your solo on it and post it on your own NG page giving credits for the backing track to me (Mihai Sorohan aka sorohanro) and post a link in the "Guitar Challenge" thread.
Have Fun!

Awesome, like always.

Really great backing track, sounds like a jam session with a guitarist on vacation.

I'm gonna do the solo sometime soon, ain't gonna have time to touch my guitar till friday thou. Well, anyway, expect it soon enough.

sorohanro responds:

Thanks for review.

very inspirating


normally I don't like jazz , I think I just listened to "hardcore-jazz"

but your style to mix that cool drum beats with the guitar solo is really cool

I just tryed to play this riff and after a time I got it , but I noticed

that it's very difficult to make a good jazz-guitar mix like this one

I love the soundhole at the beginning and the organ at 0:14 and 0:28 and all the other implementations

the coolest thing is you don't hear when it's finished it fit's perfect for a loop in the NG player =D

I haven't noticed if the song is over first

during I write this review I lost myself more and more in this song

really great

I will add you as my favorite jazz artist =)

and will hear a bit of your work day for day ;)

greetings Semaphore

Hey, thanx for the very nice words, glad that you like my works.This is actually just the backing track for the guitar contest/challenge, there is a version with solo also.
by "Hardcore Jazz" I guess you meant those hard to listen atonal fast shredding high saxophone annoying things ... well, I'm more into Funk and more "easy listen" jazz, hope you'll check more of my music and like it (I reccomend "90 Funk" "E-Funk New Version" "In the Land of Seven Sounds")


I like the diverse percussion and the key change and wow, I'll have to get to work on this one soon!

Good job again dude, another sweet track!

sorohanro responds:

glad you like it, hope you'll get your solo soon on it ;)

Nice one !

I really enjoyed it bro. I play in a funk band, bring me back some good memories lol. Very well done, I really like the two differents ambiance, I mean, at the begining it's very funky, fat funk and then at 2:15, jazzy feeling. Loved it. I made a post for the beginners on the Guitar Challenge explaining the differents scales and modes, check it out and say me if there are mistakes : ). 5'd

sorohanro responds:

also you made quite a good post about
i look forward for your solo ;)
