No problem, these types of chord progressions can be tricky...
Let's do it step by step...
First, here are the chords:

AMaj7 Dm7
AMaj7 Dmin7
G FMaj7
AMaj Dmin7


First, try to tie some chords together and see if you can fit all of them, or some of them into the same scale...
Let's see what you can find there..
Just write it down, we'll play later... :-)

Thanks! smile.gif
Now I see... That half-step movement was probably C# of Amaj7 to D or C of Dm7.
Amaj7 and Dm7 cannot be put into one scale, so I'll have to play either A ionian or A lydian over Amaj7 and D aeolian, phrygian or dorian over Dm7. But I think ionian would be better in this situation as it contains D, so the modulation would be smoother (hopefully smile.gif ). As for Dm7, I'd go for D dorian as it contains B which is also in A ionian. Also, the G and Fmaj7 chords are parts of D dorian, so I can use the same scale over Dm7 - G - Fmaj7 bit.

Excellent analysis!
That's exactly right.
So you will use A Ionian over the A Major chord, and D Dorian over all the rest...
Now, you can go for the short improv.
Don't kill yourself over it, we'll do another one soon using a different method...

Also, here is an important topic with new MTP requirements for you to read...

I'll take care of the new specs later today! :-)
