Hi! So I have a new solo added now it's your turn! smile.gif
http://soundcloud.com/alex-feather-akimov/jp-bluestring
In my solo I tried to exaggerate A minor pentatonic (c natural) over A7 chord and would like you to do the same!
Please use:
Over E mi7 chord I want you to play E dorian mode

Over A7
A minor blues pentatonic

Over D major 7 A major arpeggio


Use exact shapes I gave you!
Let me know if you have any questions or need help!

Thanks Alex!
This is very interesting.
It sounds a little off while being in the scale. Very Cool Indeed! (VCI) smile.gif
I like it.
I will try not to disappoint with my take and measure up - if I can wink.gif
Thanks for the challenge.

JPB.
PS: I see that you are challenging me with an arpeggio now. I'll give it a try Master.

It is cool to use A minor pentatonic over A7 chord!
You will have fun with it! smile.gif I can see a huge progress in your playing! You are a very melodic player and have everything it takes! I am just helping you to put those pieces together!
Keep it up!

Good morning Alex,
Here's my take for this week.
This duo incorporating distorted and clean guitars is getting interesting.
Of course, I'm still not there but I think your lead is giving me good paths.
Liked the arpeggio in it. This is great.
Listening to your style, I have yet to figure out how you achieve this loose but rhythmic style.
I'd love to be able to get there eventually.
Thanks so much for your time. I really appreciate your guidance.
I feel privileged to jazz with you a little.

I hope you'll like it!

Thank you very much for the kind words! I am having a lot of fun jamming with you as well! smile.gif
You did a very good job on the solo! But I would like to hear more arpeggios you played it a couple of times but it sounds like you are not too sure about it! I would like you to get more comfortable with it!
Let's add another one!
Over D major 7 chord you have choices:
A major arpeggio

D major 7

F# minor arpeggio


Let me know if you have any questions or need help! smile.gif

Hi Alex,
Sorry for the delay.
Not quite there I feel but it's improving I think.

Thanks for your patience. smile.gif

You did a great job! I love the melody and the tone! Everything sounded very very nice!
I have a new challenge smile.gif
Now I would like you to play arpeggios only for the whole solo!
This is a very hard exercise but it will help you to see the neck from a different perspective!
Arpeggios I would like you to use:
Dmaj7 - Emi7 - F#mi7 - Gmaj7 - A7 - Bmi7- C#mi7b5
Here are the shapes:
D maj7

Emi7

F#mi7


Gmaj7

A7

Bmi7

C#mi7b5


Just use different combinations and try to turn them into licks!
Here is my take
http://soundcloud.com/alex-feather-akimov/jpbluestrings

Let me know if you have questions or need help!

Hi Alex,

It's been a busy week for me so I did not find all the time I wanted to trial this out. However I did study your lesson on sweep arpeggios and practiced this a bit using the chords you referred me to in our collab. Great lesson by the way - very instructional.

A few questions:
When playing arpeggios, is it ok to go outside the arpeggio a bit and add one or two notes to help creating a melody?

Do the fingering and picking playing matter much? (hammer and slide, and up down strokes etc.)?

I think I am starting to see the neck differently now as you alluded to. This is great as it seems to open up new opportunities for melody when combining with the scale!!

That said, I find I tend to stick to the arpeggio as represented on the the chord pictogram as opposed to go outside the box and create a melody with the arpeggio notes.

This is new territory for me, I admit. However, nice territory.

Thanks for your guidance as usual. You put me in the right direction.

Sincerely,

JPBluestring

smile.gif
PS: I'll try to post my take over the week-end

Hello! Great I am glad you like my arpeggio lesson! smile.gif It is a fun lesson to work on!

QUOTE

Yes you can add a few notes to make a melody out of it!
QUOTE

Yes because when you will be playing them fast you might run into some troubles so it's better to learn it with the right fingers!
It is my pleasure! I am very happy that I can help and that you are learning something new! Let me know if you have any question or need help with anything!

As I said you did a fantastic job! smile.gif
I actually would like to go into exercises for a little bit! I have a perfect that will help you develop a great picking technique and master modes! The reason why we are switching is very simple it's a very good way to learn and get progress faster! After this exercise we will continue our jam and you will feel and hear the difference! smile.gif

Hi Alex,
Thanks for checking up.
Have been practicing the scales and it's going relatively well I think.
Still confused with bad fingering habits. I think I should use the Index, Major and pinky fingers -in that order- but with years of playing using the ring finger for the second not on the string I get confused all the time. Does it really matter if one can do it anyway?

Thanks

There is the "correct" way to play those! Use each finger for each fret )I hope that makes sense)
At the same time it doesn't matter as long as you feel comfortable!

Hi Alex,
Thanks for checking up.
Have been practicing the scales and it's going relatively well I think.
Still confused with bad fingering habits. I think I should use the Index, Major and pinky fingers -in that order- but with years of playing using the ring finger for the second not on the string I get confused all the time. Does it really matter if one can do it anyway?

Thanks

JPBluestring.

The theory program sounds very cool!
Thanks for doing this -I know it may become demanding as well.
I think this is a very interesting addition to the Mentoring pgm.

BTW - I am still working on the modes exercise. A bit longer than what I anticipated at first glance.
I guess my memory is failing and I have to get back to reading the tab to follow so it slows me down.
I manage all the modes if I take them slowly while reading them. (Flipping the pages is an issue though.)
I guess it is just a matter of practicing and then I'll remember the patterns.
Obviously it is important to focus on the name of the mode and the key to associate them together.
I think it helps to try to learn by heart the intervallic structure of each mode.
Anyhow, thanks for your mentoring.
This is much appreciated.
