> IS THAT YOUR MAMA?

Nope didn't think so either. We all know parents don't get this.

I can show you how to be the virtuoso your folks could only dream about, but I first need your help:

* Pm me and I will show you where to start. I am online every day and I will help you out directly!

* Join my mentoring program. I will customize your learning experience in a way you haven't experienced before. We will have regular contact so that you can remain inspired every day and eventually reach a new level.

* Join my next video chat! GMC startpage holds a video chat schedule. We always cover a lot of ground and have fun. Remember that you don't need any previous knowledge, and you can be passive in the chat.

* Jam with me - you will find active collabs here.

* Post a topic on this board, guitar related or not - doesn't matter! You will find that chatting with instructors boosts your motivation to practice.

* You haven't missed my latest video lessons, have you?

* Oh and did you know that to become a killer guitarist you just need to focus on one thing? Everything
else is secondary. Pm me and I will explain.

Hey mate!

This here is your thread smile.gif

To answer your question - as long as the notes are from the same mother scale (C major in this case) you can try almost every combination - the purpose is to create some direction and to resolve the phrase on a strong tone in order to make it sound good - try some possibilities and let me know what you like most.

In respect to blues - I suggest you to try combining the minor and major pentatonic scales - it should be a very fun thing to do and it always keeps your mind awake wink.gif What say you?

Hey man.

And the strong notes in a major scale would be the root, the third and the fifth, right? Or is it everything but the fourth?

I've been away and haven't had time to write a reply or apply the suggestions, but I will have some time later tonight and this weekend, where I'll work on those things.

Hey buddy!

Indeed, root third and fifth should be your main targets if you wish for resolution, if not, aim for the others as well wink.gif Some tension could be nice sometimes, but the choice is up to you, as long as you are conscious of what notes you chose against what chords and what you aim for. This exercise will help you create direction smile.gif
