This is the 55th solo of the Month (SotM) Challenge.
The challenge is now open ends at midnight 24th December 2019 (Xmas eve).
Here's this month's backing track (you can download it from soundcloud).https://soundcloud.com/thefretboard/sotm55-2019-12-comfy-bum
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.
This one is based on a suggestion by @soma1975
in post dated November 16 during the previous SotM (link below).
Discussion: An attempt at an epic Gilmour'ish backing track.
Title: Comfy Bum
Tempo 64 bpm
[ Bm / / / | G / / / | Bm / / / | A / / / | Bm / / A | G / / F#m | Em / / G | A / / / ] x2
End on Bm
The backing track has some 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, 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
The order and scores of the top three entries will be announced soon after the voting ends.
No prizes. It's just for fun.
It's not a competition.
