Hello GMC!

You guys did great on soloing with sequence and today its time to start with over 2nd in class type collaboration.

This collaboration focuses on soloing with chord tones and arpeggios ! What that means is that I am not going to grade you anything else but this. Make sure you play notes that belong to the chord and you are all set !
Lets first remind ourselves what arpeggio is = it is group of notes that go in a very SPECIFIC order (no skipping between notes allowed). What are chord tones ? Well they are simply notes that belong to chord and we can play them in any order we want !
So in this collaboration I am letting you play chord tones both in order and with skipping ! Experiment and have fun with it, just no scale runs or anything like that, I just want chord sounds described with as much melodic approach as possible !


Chord progression has 16 bars (without pre count bar of course smile.gif

It goes like this :

/C maj7 / A min7 / D min7 / G7 /
/C maj7 / A min7 / D min7 / G7 /
/E min7 / A min7 / D min7 / G7 /
/C maj7 / A min7 / D min7 / G7 //



As you see this chord progression is in key of C major and I used 4 part chords to create chord progression. This is very famous and specific chord progression as it describes a C Ionian sound very well and establishes sound of the key. It is known as I VI II V chord progression (C A D G chords in this case), and it happens in virtually any style of music today! At one point I did little variation where I used E min 7 instead of C maj7. Thats known as Diatonic substitution and is something we will cover in some theory lessons in future wink.gif


I decided to create a jazzy laid back backing track. Tempo is 120 bpm and you have Rhodes as keys and Acoustic bass sound along with drums programed in EZdrummer.


I provide you with all the arpeggios here and hope you will find this one very fun and useful to play over.
I will very soon post couple of my improvised takes over this backing using only arpeggios and chord tones.


Enjoy it !


Pedja

Excellent Harry !

If you have never done arpeggios now its time to start, seriously ! They are great way to play over any type of chord progression, whether its simple diatonic (like this one) or some crazy jazz fusion one - it always works. smile.gif

Great to have you with us Harry smile.gif

I'm not sure. Don't sign me up yet, I'll try to make it, but I don't wanna sign up and then not do anything, so I'll have to get back to you about this.
