Sounds very good!!! Some notes were off but I can hear that you are trying to use a lot of scales I asked you to!
Good job!
Now I would like you to start landing on chord tones every time the changes hit!
Try to get 3rd and 7th so you can really accent the changes!
Let me know if you need help or have any questions!


Ok, I finally have time to get back into more lessons. smile.gif

Just a quick question. When you are referring to 3rd and 7th, you are talking about the 3rd and 7th note in the pentatonic scale?

I've been improvising for about hour on this today. I'm not really coming up with anything structured that I'm happy with. I was concentrating on trying to accent the chord changes. Every take I did was different... I thought this was one of the better ones even with couple unsure moments. smile.gif

Great! So here it is! I want to start getting into playing over 7th chord!
You know mixolydian already now it's time to add some new scales!
Let's start with a whole tone scale!
It's a very cool scale to play especially if you like Holdsworth! smile.gif
So what I want you to do is to learn a whole tone scale and use it over A7 chord



You can use both!
The chord changes are:
Emi7 - A7 - Dmaj7
I want you to play E dorian over Emi7 - A whole tone scale over A7 - Bminor pentatonic or D major scale over Dmaj7

It might sound weird at first but more you will play it better and cooler you will feel!
Try to experiment and let me know if you have any questions or need help!

I think Holdsworth is fantastic!

I've been coming up with ideas and the whole tone over A7 is sounding real cool. I'll post something after jamming to this for a couple days!

P.S. You can use a whole tone scale for any 7 chord! Just start with a root!

I'm still in the experimental stage with this lesson. This take isn't structured but more for a example. I wanted to see if I'm doing this correctly...specifically with the whole-tone scale?

It sounded really good! You did very good on the whole tone scale!!! Now I want you to try to combine a whole tone scale with a mixolydian mode and use it over A7!
Let me know if you need help with it!

Thanks! I added the mixolydian mode over A7. I used the whole tone over A7 and I think it turned out more natural this time. I'll let you be the judge.

Sounds very good! I can suggest to keep it less busy and try to focus on the melody instead of shredding! Also I would like you to build the solo over this chord progression using everything we have covered so far! I want you to work on:
Dynamic, building melody, developing the solo! You can do a few loops through the track! Let me know if you have any questions!
