If you guys remember previous video chats that we did, I was talking about improvisation techniques you can apply when doing your soloing, even your rhythm work (using chordal embelishments).

Some of the things we worked, (and will work in today's 4-5PM chat) are:

- learning patterns of scales and arpeggios
- utilizing strong notes
- create call & response phrases


What are the concepts that you like to use in order to keep the strong connection to the backing?

I have started to develop a jazz kinda view of all of it in some way. I can approach it using guide notes or common notes to the chords Im soloing over. In the case of simple power chords and or triads it is important for me to find out which type of sound I want to give because in modes it is all about attacking those special notes.

Cant say I give much more thought than that which is already a lot laugh.gif

That's a great approach! smile.gif I specially like your thoughts about triads and powerchords, cause they are universal and repeating in several keys. This opens lots of space. Very well said! smile.gif

I usually like to use some common notes, as well as trying to develop a melody which would add some sense to the improvisation, who knows when jamming could come up with a good tune? tongue.gif
