Hi I just wanted to follow up and see how are you doing! Let me know if you have any questions or need help!


Hello!
I have some ideas, but still can't get rid of mistakes, when playing arpeggios. Have to practice my phrases a little bit more smile.gif
Will record my take until the next week.
Cheers!

Hi, Alex!
Finally, I recorded a take with arpeggios. Arpeggios work well here! But I found I should improve my sweep picking to play them with ease.

Looking forward for a new assignment.

Here is a new assignment! We will add more scales and combinations!
http://soundcloud.com/alex-feather-akimov/smolentsev-1
Over Emi7 I would like you to play E dorian


Over A7
B minor pentatonic


A chromatic scale (you can use any notes from it just don't resolve into them)


D maj7
When this chord will come I would like you to combine E dorian scale with arpeggios
here are arpeggio choices:
F# mi7


D maj7


E mi7



Bmi7


If you will use more arpeggios than E dorian will be perfect!
Let me know if you have any questions or need help!

Hi, Alex!
Here is my take as I promised smile.gif
Still have some confusions with sweep picking, but I think this problem will disappear with practice.

You did a great job on the solo! Sweep picking is very hard but more you do it better you will get! smile.gif
I did a lesson a few months ago it will help you with sweep
https://www.guitarmasterclass.net/ls/Sweep-...-7th-Arpeggios/
Check it out!
I also have a perfect exercise for you! It will help you to master modes plus will bring your alternative picking to the next level! smile.gif
Modes being used:
F# Locrian - G major - A dorian - B phrygian - C Lydian - D mixolydian - E minor

Ok, I'm practicing this exercise. Should I make a record over the click or just play along with you over the backing track?

You can do either way! Click is the best, If you can do that it would be awesome!
I also will be posting the backing track next week so you can practice using it as well!
Let me know if you have any questions or need help with anything! smile.gif

So here is what we will be doing!
I will be explaining a new theory subject once a week or every other week and will be giving assignments based on it!
Theory questions (will help me to get a better idea where to start! )

- Harmonize G major scale
- Build A7 chord
- Write ii - V - I chord progression starting with Cmi7
- D mi7 - Bb - Gmi - F What key this chord progression in?

I practice this exercise about 20-30 min every day. When I memorise this scale nicely I will make a record over the click.

Well, here is what I have:

1. G major - A minor - B minor - C major - D major - E minor - F#dim

2. A7 chord: A-C#-E-G (I-III-V-bVII)

3. Cmi7 - F7 - A#M7 (II-V-I)

4. D mi7 - Bb - Gmi - F, looks like the key of progression is Dm

Is it correct?

4. D mi7 - Bb - Gmi - F, looks like the key of progression is Dm

Is it correct?

You are correct! Only technical mistakes! smile.gif
For ii - V - I chord progression we will have
Cmi7 - F7 - Bbmaj7
In this case you can't use A# because if you will it is not V it is #IV I know it is the same note but it will bring you a lot of troubles in the future so it's better to learn it the correct way!
You are correct about the chord progression! But the is another possible option!
here is how to look at it:
D mi7 - Bb - Gmi - F
F/Dmi major scale harmonized:
F - Gmi - Ami - Bb - C - Dmi - E dim

Bb/Gmi major scale harmonized:

Bb - Cmi - Dmi - Eb - F - Gmi - Adim

You can see that the triads are the same in both keys so unless I will be using 7th chords it can be both!

Let me know if you have any questions and we will move on!

When need to define a key of the progression I usually use following procedure:

- I write notes of each chord in progression. For D mi7 - Bb - Gmi - F we have

D, F, A, C - for Dmi7
Bb, D, F - for Bb
G, Bb, D - for Gmi
F, A, C - for F

In the result we have 6 notes - D F G A Bb C. Only F/Dmi fits with this notes set.

Is it ok to define a tonality using such procedure?

In the result we have 6 notes - D F G A Bb C. Only F/Dmi fits with this notes set.

Is it ok to define a tonality using such procedure?

Wow it is a very interesting method!!! I like it a lot! It is a correct way but it fits both scales!
It doesn't have VI which is E (Eb in Bb/Gm) So both will work!
Does it make sense? Let me know! smile.gif

Yes! I see now. One step can be both E or Eb, so both scales (Dm and Gm) are possible, right?
