So I have a track ready!
What we will do is we will play 4 bars each and will create the whole solo from the beginning till the end!
http://soundcloud.com/alex-feather-akimov/degroot-track
I started it I use E dorian scale for E mi7 chord
when A 7 came I played a variation of the first phrase
Over D major I combined A major blues pentatonic with A minor
Now I want you to continue and play the next 4 bars! Try to continue my idea and really make it flow nicely together!
Let me know if you need help or have any questions!
P.S. When you will be uploading the track do it the same way I did with your take mixed and with the rest of the backing track playing!


I continued your phrase idea over E and A then added something different over D7. Hope this works OK! Look forward to your reply smile.gif

So for the next assignment I would like you to create a short solo based on arpeggios only
If we will harmonize the E dorian scale we will get:
Emi7 - F#half diminished - G maj7 - Ami7 - Bmi7 - Cmaj7 - D7
You can use any of this arpeggios! I would like you to create a solid and melodic connection using at least different arpeggios and nothing else!
Here is my take:
http://soundcloud.com/alex-feather-akimov/degroot


I also noticed that you punching in a lot this time I want to hear a solid take from the beginning till the end!
This will take you out of your comfort zone as well! smile.gif
Do the same thing as last time record after my take and leave the rest playing!
Let me know if you have any questions or need help!

I'm slowly trying to learn theory. I'm curious what is the theory behind coming up with these specific chords? Are these just certain chord harmonies that you picked for this lesson? Hope my question makes sense.

It's very simple! I think I went a little too far ahead smile.gif
I was talking about E minor chord and probably should start from the beginning!

So the chord progression is:
Emi7 - A7 - Dmaj7
It is in a key of D major
So if we will harmonize the scale we will get:
Dmaj7 - Emi7 - F#mi7 - Gmaj7 - A7 - Bmi7 - C#half diminished

What I did is build chords for each note of the scale! Simple as that!

In this case I meant E minor ionian and wanted to add some changes
So instead of going through with E dorian I suggested to use E Ionian over E mi7 Which would have natural C
Emi7 - F#half diminished - G maj7 - Ami7 - Bmi7 - Cmaj7 - D7

I hope that makes sense! Let me know if you have any questions or need help!

Ok laugh.gif

I changed out the last lick with a different one and touched up a spot. I'll play the whole thing over when I submit a new take so its sounds solid!

Hi Alex,
I have been studying all of the chords that I'll be using for the assignment. If you check the link below you'll see the notes for Bmin7 with the 7th listed incorrectly as A#. Not knowing any better at first, I was creating patterns with A# and it made for some interesting sounds.

http://www.guitar-chords.org.uk/b-minor7-chord.html

After researching I could not find a B chord that consists of B-D-F-A# as listed there. I thought maybe it was an Augmented chord but later discovered that I would raise the 5th for Aug. and for diminished I would flat the 7th.

So my question is:

If B-D-F#-A is Bmin7th

What chord is B-D-F#-A#?

Here is my first attempt at the assignment. I will gladly record another version but I wanted to check to see if I'm on the right track.

I also recorded my first part from a couple weeks ago without punch-ins but I wasn't able to figure out how to drop it in without it sounding a little weird.

You did a good job on this take!
It sounded like your timing was a little off and also you have landed on a very weird note that was sounding very weird!
Also I would like you to expand the borders of your playing and try something new!
I want you to do Q&A technique Q should be at a low register A in a high!
Let's use the same scales and shapes as before!
Let me know if you have any questions or need help!

I will try and do something completely different with the arpeggio lesson. I'm not too proud with what i put up yesterday.

With this new Q & A assignment. SHould I do this on the track that you played lead on?

Also, if you can please check a couple replays above. I left you a question you might have missed. smile.gif

I will record Q&A first thing in the morning so you can record a solo using my idea! We will start developing this solo a little more so it will get a bit shredddddy! smile.gif
I am not sure which questions you are talking about? Can you please post it again?

Sounds good to me! I am ready to get shredy. smile.gif

I think I answered the question I had. It is the post one before the recording I put down the other day.
It is a question about 7th chords.

I accidentally came across this chord and was playing arpeggios in this shape. My question was what chord would this be?

B-D-F#-A#

My answer is B maj/min7. Am I correct?
