I have been working with Major and minor 7th chords more than anything. I am just trying to memorise where all the Major 7th chord voicings are right now. Then I will memorise all the minor 7th chord voicings.

I was working on a really cool Jazz standard named Always by Irving Berlin. Do you know of it?

Of course I do! If you want I can create a backing track and we can start jamming over it and I will be giving you assignments based on it! Let me know!

That would be awesome! I was thinking of soloing over the song using Aeolian, but I am having trouble discovering passing tones that I think would sound good.

Can you please right me a chord progression? We might have different versions and I would like to see the one you are working on!

Absolutely. I got it from 'The Real Book' Sixth Edition. I will attach a Guitar Pro file with the chord progression with the voicings I have chosen to use for this song. The melodies will also be included. Feel free to distribute the GP file if you like it. I can always convert the file into GP5 or less as well if that is necessary.

Attached File  Always.gpx ( 41.44K ) Number of downloads: 74

Hi! I am very sorry but unfortunately I won't be able to create the backing track! I am upgrading my studio and will have to wait for a week to get new equipment in!
So in a week it will be done!
In a meantime I will give you a choice!
We can start getting into improvisation using backing track I have
or I can give you another exercise that will help you develop alternative picking!
Let me know! smile.gif

Can I ask what you think I should work on most? I know that the past videos I have posted may not illustrate all of my abilities, but I would like to know what you think I should do.

I think we can combine both and do exercises as a warm up routine every day and do improvisation as well!
What would you say? Also is there a style you are interested the most? Since you mention always I am assuming it's jazz and fusion? Let me know!

So here is what I came up with!
http://soundcloud.com/alex-feather-akimov/libach-jazz
The chord are:
Dmi7 - G7 - Emi7 - Ami7 - Dmi7 - G7 - Cmaj7 - Ami7 - Dmi7 - G7 - Cmaj7 - E7 - Fmaj7 - G7 - Emi7 - Ami7 - Dmi7 - G7 - C7 - Fmaj7 - B7 - Bb7 - A7 - Dmi7 - G7 - Emi7 - Ami7 - Dmi7 - D#diminished - Emi7 - A7 - Dmi7 - Emi7 - Fmaj7 - Cmaj7 - Emi7 - A7

This track is not as hard as it might seem smile.gif
Let's start by analyzing the first part
Dmi7 - G7 - Emi7 - Ami7 - Dmi7 - G7 - Cmaj7 - Ami7 - Dmi7 - G7 - Cmaj7
Over this changes you can play D Dorian, Aminor pentatonic, Dminor pentatonic, E minor pentatonic
Over E7 you can play E minor pentatonic or E mixolydian
I would like you to go ahead and analyze the rest of it!
Try it out and let me know if you have any questions or need help!

It is in D minor
So D dorian will work perfect for the first section!
This track doesn't have that many changes and those are easy and fun to play over! Let me know if you have any questions or need help!

I stopped studying for a bit because I damaged my hands from attempting to tremolo Pick at too high a speed for way too long. I have spent the last 7 weeks or so recovering and getting rid of all my tension problems. If you can give me another week or so, I should be ready to stawrt my mentoring thread again.
