Hi Pierre,

We continue now with our work for February. For first 2 assignments I have decided to start with superimposing with minor pentatonics only this time you will have to read the thread about major chords and record some superimposing with minor pentatonics over major type chords.

Here is your 1st and 2nd assignment

1st assignment :

- Read Superimposing with Minor Pentatonics over Major type chords post HERE
- After reading the whole thing with related link posts, think about choosing one chord and one approach you will use for recording!

2nd assignment :

- After you have chosen your approach, record a backing track with that chord and on top of that record yourself soloing with 1 or all 3 minor pentatonics corresponding with that mode!

Let me give you an example here. Lets say that you have chosen C major as your chord. Now you also chose C major to be treated as I (Ionian sounding). In that case you should play minor pentatonics from C major scale ( D ,E and A minor pentatonics) over C major chord in the background. 4th assignment asks you only to pick 1 but it also allows you to use all 3 pentatonics if you want to.
Backing track doesn't have to be anything fancy for this purpose. Just guitar playing the chord will do, if you want to add bass and drums to that to make it sound tighter go ahead!


Deadline for first two assignments is 14th of February.

Let me know if you have any questions.


Pedja

Pedja, The way I understand for this assignment, its the pentatonics played over a single chord?

can I vary the chord up and down the fretboard?

Yes you can Pierre but only if you are playing the same chord!

Pedja, If I wanted to use the G Major Chord in Lydian Mode (IV),
I use:

D Major Scale:
I II III IV V VI VII VIII
D E F# G A B C# D

Which means that I can superimpse E minor Pentatonic, F#minor Pentatonic, and B minor Pentatonic Scales,

Is this correct?

Pierre we continue with your remaining assignments for February. We have 3rd, 4th and REC assignment to cover.

3rd assignment and REC :

- Record Triads in a major scale series part 2 lesson found HERE
- Once you are done with video recording, upload it in REC part of forum for grading. Make sure that you include voting pool.

4th assignment :

- Record backing track using two random chords!
- Chords could have the same quality (two major chords for example) or different quality ( minor and then major chord).
- Chords don't have to be diatonic ( in other words you could record C and Eb major chords in backing track!)
- Over these chords, solo using superimposing with minor pentatonics!
- Once you recorded your solo, upload it in this thread.

For example... I choose to record two chords that have same quality, major chords. First chord is C major while second is Eb major. Duration is the same for both of the chords. Now what I need to do is decide what I want my C major and Eb major to sound like. I decide that I want C major to sound like Ionian, so I pick E minor pentatonic to solo over. In other case I choose my Eb major to sound like Mixolyidian, so I pick Bb minor pentatonic to superimpose over it. Now I record a solo using E minor and Bb minor pentatonics over C major and Eb major chords. The duration of solo is your choice!

Let me know if you have any questions.

Deadline for these assignments is 28th of February !

Pedja, as I said I finally managed to start playing a little longer, turns out it was a stress related thing.. I'm REALLY sorry for the delay.. and thanks for being so patient..

I'm unsure of these excercieses - I have a lot of trouble improvising and such...

but here is

G Maj Chord -> F# Minor Pentatonic

and E Maj Chord -> G# Minor Pentatonic

Hi Pierre,

Thank you for submitting your work. I realize it has taken you a lot of time and you had some health problem which I haven't forgotten. I will close this thread now and mark it as complete. I will check also to see if you can continue with your work with me since the new rule started in March regarding 3 month period with everybody. The way things are looking I would say you have to pause until June to continue working again with any instructor. Thank you for your work once again and I hope that you learned something through assignments.

Pedja
