FRIDAY MAY 18th - VCHAT LESSON NOTES

Hi guys! These are the lesson notes for tomorrow's Vchat session. The topic is "Pentatonic with chromatic notes"

I will be showing which notes you can add to the Pentatonic minor scale, why, and show licks using it. I will show you how players like John Petrucci, Steve Morse and Marty Friedman use this concept in their solos.







We will use this backing track and guitar pro file as a starting point, but don't worry if these seems to be so fast. the lesson is for all levels!

Are we really going to do such fast soloing over such a slow, emotional kinda backing track ?

I use a metronome at different tempos and that backing track. The idea is that you play it over the metronome with me, I start with slow note values, and then increase the speed. If the speed is too high you can keep playing at the slower tempo.

I love that Slash style backing track. Can I use it for a face-off? That is, challenge some friends to a solo face off using it? I'll give you full credit for the backing!?
