Okay I think I have that chart memorized just a few questions. In bars 11-12 that is the D mixolydian mode , The tab says to play 15-14-12 on the B string ? is this just a typo ? Becuase 15-14-12 on the B string is D-C#-B, If we are in the key of G shouldnt it be D-C-B , which would be 15-13-12.

Also I noticed that all of these exercises are just the mode descending and then ascending again over 2 bars. The only one i didn;t know was bars 3&4. Is that G ionian ?

you are absolutely correct! It was a typo! You are the first one who is trying this exercise so if you see any mistakes please let me know! smile.gif
This exercise will boost your alternative picking, will help you to sync your hands and you will master modes in no time!
Play it twice a day for 5 days you will see amazing changes! smile.gif
Let me know if you have any questions or need help!

P.S. You have to play it through without stopping! smile.gif

That was my only question. Practice is going good. I played through it at least 5 times yesterday, and 3 times today already. I am taking it slow and making sure I hit all the correct notes,and once my muscles have memorized then I will build up speed. i just find that if I play to fast I will forget where I am going .

Alex this is the the same exercise as you gave me previously. I have already completed it, except I didnt read the part about randomly stopping and calling out the note name. I will work on that otherwise I am ready for a new assignment Please smile.gif

Oh wow sorry I must of missed it! smile.gif It's a very new exercise and not that many students tried it yet! So I am trying to give it to some! smile.gif
So let's start getting into improvisation!
I have a backing track for you it's a rock shuffle style!
Standard Blues progression but a little heavier! smile.gif
http://soundcloud.com/alex-feather-akimov/rockshuffle
So the chords are:
A7 - D7 - E7

What we will be doing is jamming back and forth! It will be like a collab but one on one!
I will prepare my track in a couple of days but in the meantime would like you to start getting use to this track and play over the changes!
Scales to use for this exercise:
Over A7
A Major pentatonic


Over D7

D minor blues pentatonic


Over E7
E minor pentatonic


I will base my solo of the same scales and shapes!
Let me know if you have any questions or need help!

Wow this is news to me ! I thought that when improvising we just used scales from that key. So if we are in the key of G for example I didnt think we could use the C major pentatonic scale over a C chord !

I just have one question. You listed the progression as E7-A7-B7, but down below you said A7-D7-E7 ? So is the chord a B7 or a D7 ?

Hello! Actually the chord progression is A7 - D7 - E7

The shapes are correct!
Yes it is a very cool technique to use! You can play different pentatonics over each chord and you will hit the changes! It is a lot of fun! smile.gif
I will finish my track tomorrow to give you ideas for combining pentatonics and creating your own licks!

So I have recorded my take! I played exactly the same shapes that I gave you!
Here it is

jeseej"> http://soundcloud.com/alex-feather-akimov/
jeseej

I would like you to continue my idea for the same amount of bars I played it! Try to be as melodic as possible! Q&A technique works great for this track!
Please leave the rest of the backing track playing so I can add the next part!
Let me know if you have any questions or need help!

You did a very good job! I like your ideas! Sounded very nice! I would suggest to play a little less in the beginning and try to build it up towards the end Question & Answer technique would work perfect for it!
Let me know if you have any questions or need help!

It's very easy! You are playing a short phrase, you can do it in a lower register and than answering it with another phrase!
There are a few different types of question and answer technique
two - two
Playing two notes in a lower register and replying in a higher register with two notes as well

----------------------------------------------
------------------------------12-15-----------
----------------------------------------------
---5-7----------------------------------------
----------------------------------------------
----------------------------------------------

Two - four
Playing two notes in a lower register and replying in a higher register with four notes

----------------------------------------------
------------------------------12-15-----------
-------------------------------------12-14----
---5-7----------------------------------------
----------------------------------------------
----------------------------------------------

Four - four

--------------------------------------12-15---
------------------------------12-15-----------
--------5-7-----------------------------------
---5-7----------------------------------------
----------------------------------------------
----------------------------------------------

You can keep going in even numbers! This technique will help you develop your solo so you don't show everything right away!
Very good technique to use when you are got caught on the spot and have to play something right away!
