If you tend to procrastinate like me you still have a little time to enter the Guitar Playback 60 second guitar solo contest at http://www.guitarplayback.com/contest
There have been lots of great entries posted you can listen to some at www.truthinshredding.com
The backing track for this solo was way outside my normal comfort zone but I tried to embrace the change and put down something worthwhile. I tried to center things around the suggested scales of F# Minor and a bit of the F# Phrygian mode. Hope you enjoy it. I encourage you to try posting your own submission or at least download the backing track and try to come up with some guitar licks over the progression that you like.
