open G5 chord - G (x) D G D G (strings 6 to 1) is used throughout most of the recording as a jumping off point for the free form jamming.
I am using various melodic and harmonic material from the following basic key centers to create my improvisation:
G lydian - Key of D
G ionian - Key of G
G mixolydian - Key of C
G dorian - Key of F
G aeolian - Key of Bb
Approximately midway through the recording at 4:08 I am using an octave shape on the 5th and 2nd strings and allowing the open D and G strings to ring through in the middle. To my ears, it creates a Jimmy Page vibe.
In this recording, I am playing a late 80's Ibanez Artist with a Seymour Duncan Jazz pickup (neck pick-up-series) through a Custom Billm Modified Fender Blues Junior in a custom designed cherry wood cabinet with a Jensen Special Design C15N speaker. I am using a TELEFUNKEN Graphite Enriched Delrin Large Triangle Guitar Pick, D'Addario NYXL Nickel Wound Strings 09-42 and a Horizon right angle cable.
The percussion track is the DrumJam app for iPad running through a pair of TAPCO S-5 Active Studio Monitors.
The audio was recorded with an iPhone 6s Plus using the Voice Memos app with a RØDE iXY Stereo Microphone.
For audio mastering, I've added a compressor and limiter in GarageBand. There is no EQ or reverb added.
