I wanted to give an update on my practice. First of all this lesson has targeted my weakness. As soon as I start playing without any thought it all sounds the same. When I give proper attention to the chords Im soloing over its as if I forgot how to play guitar. This is exactly what I was looking to work on.

Ive found that each chord GBD, DF#A, CEG has so many possibilities in each little cage pattern. You can play straight up the neck, in tight position, or many combinations of them all over the fretboard. Playing it musically and with other notes is a challenge.

Playing G man Pentatonic is a strong sound however it omits the C note, which is half of the chord progression. Sure there is E and G but the tonic is missing. Playing Gmaj is a little easier for me and Im finding that if I build a lick over G but give a little emphasis on B then back to G it seems to add some color to the triad.

What is nice about the triads are each shape is 1st, 2nd or 3rd inversion and remembering each shape can also help remember what notes are what.

In Conclusion, this is something I will spend quite a bit of time on as I see it has already helped me see things I've never seen before and my playing although not as flashy or fast or bendy or pinchy.... has sounded thought out. I have 4 days off work during Thanksgiving and hope to make a cool video on my progress.

Hi mate, great to see that you are working hard on this!

This is a very good analysis and it's exactly what I wanted you to do with this lesson. I'm very curious to hear what you'll record next based on the work that you are doing this weekend.

This concept is very powerful. Enjoy and take your time to incorporate it.

I had to redo the video because the mix was all off. Im sure it still needs work but the first one was pretty bad. I tried taking all the previous suggestions and use as much of the triad positions from the lessons with giving my interpretation.

Hi Jim! Nice video!

There are some moments when your phrasing becomes very tasty and melodic. I think that there is still work to do in order to continue improving your major improvisation. There are some ideas that you could apply during the next practice sessions:

- More use of silences. Let your phrasing breath by separating some of the phrases with silences. Listen to how guitarists like David Gilmour, Santana and Slash use this element.

- Try to play more horizontally. Being able to see the triads on the same string and moving horizontally can make everything sound much more melodic.

- Experiment more with the triad notes by bending to them, and also by sometimes avoiding them over the first two chords to then target it over the last chord.


And while you continue practicing over this one, you can get into the minor triads and pentatonic.

I completely agree. I do feel like my vision of fretboard is better, still haven’t learned enough of it to be second nature. I’ll work on horizontal movements and try to hit more chord tones.

I’m looking at other solo lessons here and it seems like many of the solo parts start or end on other tones of the chord beside it’s root…
