Video chat starting one one hour, I'm in the chat right now! smile.gif

Hey guys, this week we have another chat closely related to improvisation. We all run exercises daily, and need to focus mostly on making those patterns work for us. Knowing the shape isn't enough, using all the notes from the shape exactly when you need to is crucial.

Chat will be held at guitarmasterclass.net. Nonsubscribers can participate as well. Time: Sunday 16.00 London Time! smile.gif

This week the focus will be on arpeggios, and toa pentatonic patterns. We are still in the key of C major:


On the other hand, we will use several different pentatonic patterns as we go along. The goal of this chat is to get ourselves familiar with couple of important improvising concepts, and bring them to a new level:

- Concept of using minor/major pentatonic scales over a given chord
- Playing simple arpeggios over a given chord
- Usage of strong notes within phrases over a given chord
- Structuring call & response phrases


We will put all of the 4 concepts mentioned above in connection with each other and try to form a cool solo. When the chat is finished you can check out the backing we together created and a solo, and analyze it further.

Here are stackable backing fractions that we will use to make our progression. All the chords are 7th chords from C major key, and they last 4 bars (we can make any combination we want in the chat).

See you there (tomorrow): Sunday 16.00 London Time! smile.gif
