Good job! You got everything right!
I would like to start with a circle of fifths! I know you are probably know it, but I would like to refresh it so we won't have any troubles in the future! I will also explain you numbers, it will make it easier for you to transpose to any key and you will get a better idea of notes relations!
Here it is!
Attached Image
This is how you will add sharps and flats to your scales! It call circle of fifths because it goes up in fifths!
We are adding sharps (#) C - G - D - A - E - B - F#
Going down forth adding flats:F - Bb - Eb - Ab - Db - Gb
Here are all the sharps:
F# - C# - G# - D# -A#

Here are all the flats:
Bb - Eb - Ab - Db - Gb - Cb

So if for example we have a D major scale we will have 2 sharps F# and C# Every time a new scale comes up we will be adding one sharp or flat!

Now let me explain the numbers! It's very simple

Each note of the scale will have a number it will make it easier to memorize all the scales/chords and will be able to transpose it to any key!
As an example I will use C major scale

C - I
D - II
E - III
F - IV
G - V
A - VI
B - VII

Let me know when you will go through it so I can give you a melodic assignment based on the circle of fifth!

here is a video I found, Is been a while since I watched it



the wheel of fifths

1 2 3 4 5
C D E F G A B C
______ 1 2 3 4 5
______ G A B C D E F# G
_____________ 1 2 3 4 5
_____________ D E F# G A B C# D

and so on

the note on the inner part of the circle of fifths is the relative minor

a saying to help me remember part of the wheel is "Father Charles Goes Down And Ends Battles"

the modes are - Ionian Dorian Phrygian Lydian Mixolydian Aeolian Locrain

What I play



and



the major scale is built - tone - tone - semi tone - tone - tone - tone - semi tone

Here is my take On the G Major Scale and Dorian Mode



I tell you all this to give an idea of what I know, to better help you understand what I know, if you know what I know then you can help me learn what I dont know and correct me when Im wrong and help me understand why, this is most of what i know about theory

Wow! Thank you for making it clear for me! You know a lot and it's very good I will keep explaining you new things as we go along!! I think we can start getting into improvisation a little bit more! I think blues would be a good start!
Here is cool blues track in E
http://soundcloud.com/alex-feather-akimov/blues-mentoring
It is a standard I - IV - V progression
so the chords are:
E7 - A7 - B7 - A7
For the first exercise we will do that!
Over E7 Play E minor pentatonic in any position you want
Over A7 I would like you to play A mixolydian in this position

Over B7
B minor blues pentatonic in this position


In a few days we will start a new mentoring approach it will be like a collab but just you and me!
For now I would like you to come up with a first 8 solo bars using backing track and scales I have provided!
Please mix your solo in the track and leave the rest without cutting it so we can start adding parts back and forth!
Let me know if you have any questions or need help!

Awesome! So here is my take and a new assignment!
http://soundcloud.com/alex-feather-akimov/bascuthach

I did the first part to give you ideas and would like you to continue my solo using those scales:

Over E7 chord
E minor pentatonic in this position



Over A7
A minor pentatonic in this position



Over B7
B minor pentatonic in this position


Try to be as melodic as possible! This is a good exercise that will help you to start mixing pentatonics and play over the changes!
Let me know if you have any questions or need help!

can you tab out what you played so I can learn it and then build off that? also if you put it in a .gp5 file only, that would work for me, you dont have to tab it out in the forum smile.gif

To tab it would be very difficult because I am jamming and will have to transcribe the whole solo! I am using the same scales and the idea of this type of mentoring to guide you and help you to find your own style of playing!!
You are doing very well and this exercises will help you a lot and you will get progress very very fast!
