Hello Gab,

I meant like this. Both scales as one, a whole bunch of notes to choose from. Or should we play licks using one scale and then the other swapping from one to the other



Cheers Gab

UPDATE

I have been reading the linked theory and I don't understand this statement in it.
"Using the intervals 1-2-3-5-6, this scale doesn’t have a 7th in it, which is why it can be used to solo over both 7th and maj7 chord, or even major triads, in various improvisational settings.""
Why is it OK to use a scale WITHOUT a 7th over 7th chords. I would have thought a scale WITH a 7th would work with a 7th chord but what do I know smile.gif
Cheers

At first it's better to switch from one to the other to get used to the different colors that you get. Then you can use different approaches to create music with them, but take your time to get used to each scale and arpeggio.


7th chords have a minor seventh, while Maj7th chords include a major 7th. A scale that doesn't include any 7th can be used over both chords.

"this beautiful process" Powerful words Gab, like a flower forming from a seed or an oak tree from an acorn " this really made me think differently about our evolution as players. Thank you wink.gif

Another try just using the blues scale.
Really struggling to get a decent tone, why is a good blues tone harder than a metal tone? More simple approach I guess, fewer effects, less distortion, more in the fingers?
Also the guitar sounds out of tune but it isn't, intonation is fine too. It sounds lifeless.

UPDATE:
19th March 2016

Another go, I didn't realise how similar this was to the last one until I played it back on here. I need more ammunition in my armoury cool.gif
All I seem to ever do when improvising is find a pattern and kind of keep repeating it along a theme. I can't seem to get any flowing runs.
The other thing I find myself doing is only listening to the brum beat, the bass and rhythm guitars seem to fade out.

Blues scale:

https://soundcloud.com/gmcphil-1/theory-assignment-3-take-3-blues-scale

Major pentatonic scale: This is much more difficult, it's got that stretch to the root on the D string with the pinkie making vibrato difficult unless you slide with another finger.

Hi everyone , here comes my first Amin pentatonic plus blue note.

Phil, I really like your take2. The tone fits great and you have a nice bluesy laid back style. Much better than me trying to play a note each beat. This will be inspiration for my next take. biggrin.gif

Awesome stuff Phil! I really liked your metaphor: "like a flower forming from a seed or an oak tree from an acorn". It's so nice to see ourselves as player with that perspective. It's also a good way to put aside anxiety and that feeling of dissatisfaction that we (guitarists) use to have.

Your takes are interesting. I don't think that the tones that you've used don't fit with the backing. Each blues player has its own tone, and I think that this style as well as cleaner jazz stuff depends a lot on each part of the chain, starting on the guitarist finger, passing through guitar, pick ups and amps. So it's a good idea to focus on tone too in this assignment. A good first exercise would be to try to emulate the tone of a blues player that you like and when you think it's close enough, do the same with any other one. This will train your ears and will make you explore a lot your gear.

About your playing, I think that these takes show that you are focusing on creating clear phrases (well done!) but mostly on exploring each of the scales. That's exactly what I think you should do at this stage. Explore the sound of each scale and discover how each note sounds over the different chords. Pentatonic Major scale is trickier, but it give a very unique sound that combined with the other stuff is pure BLUES.

Keep on practicing and share new takes soon!

Hi Tom! Great to see your first take on this one! smile.gif

I'd like to hear you jamming more using this scale but with a small difference. Instead of using the blue note as a target note (a note in which you end phrases), try using it as a passing note and end your phrases on other notes from the scale. Please focus only on this small task and share a take after 1 or 2 days of practice, deal?

Thanks Tom,

I appreciate your comments. I always try to keep in mind, it's not what you play, but what you don't play that works with the blues, maybe a little harder with the tempo of this trick but have a listen to Stevie Ray Vaughan, Tin Pan Alley for some inspiration to not play a note a beat wink.gif

Thanks Gab,

New takes will be coming very soon. I'm getting worried about the arpeggio assignment though unsure.gif

Cheers

UPDATE:

New take sooner than I thought. I tried something new 0:12-0:22

https://soundcloud.com/gmcphil-1/theory-assignment-3-take-5-pent-maj

I find I struggle if I try to hold notes for a while.

Hi Phil, thanks for that SRV track, it's really inspiring for this thread. Let's keep sharing inspiring videos that can bring fresh ideas here.

About your solo, it's good to see you experimenting with double stops, keep on doing it and try different rhythms. I think that your tone is a bit dirty on this new take, I would try with less distortion and with more presence. I also think that you could experiment using more silence, and different rhythms, as well as using more bending and vibrato. Let's start making this sound more and more bluesy.

Thanks Gab,

On that section 0:12-0:22 I wasn't actually playing double stops, I fingered the barre chord and then strummed down once and up twice but it doesn't cut through in the the sound for some reason.

More bluesy stuff tonight hopefully

Cheers

That sounds better to me Tom smile.gif If I were you; and please don't think I getting above my station; I would try adding some vibrato to your extended notes to add a bit of flavour smile.gif

Here's something that might inspire us and give us some ideas for this track.
Stevie Ray Vaughan: Shake For Me


Gab,
Here is another go. I struggled to come up with anything in the Major Pentatonic scale tonight so went back to the blues scale.

Great job, this sounds much better! You are now on the right direction. You need to continue exploring this scale, and slowly start with the other two approaches.

One cool trick that you can try, based on this new take is to add a slow half bend every time you play the 5th fret on the 3rd string. This will bend the minor third to the major third. Try it and let me know if you like what you get.

That's a nice new take mate. In order to start mixing both scales I recommend you to explore the licks of this lesson: https://www.guitarmasterclass.net/ls/Blues-...nor-Pentatonic/

Learn some of them and try to find out how the instructor combines both scales in the same solo. It's a great lesson. You'll also find some double stop licks.

Thanks Gab - I will try this trick with the bend and share a new take soon.

Hi Phil - I really appreciate your candid feedback wink.gif Thanks much!
I just restricted my time to this thread to about 30min/d to leave time for the other lessons. That's why I stopped yesterday at a raw idea. Currently I struggle a little doing all the things I want in my guitar practice as well as work and family commitments. And late at night its hard being creative.

I know what it's like mate. I just struggle to stop on something at the 30 minute mark. I keep saying, "One more take" laugh.gif

Yes Phil, on days when "sound flows" one should not stop at all...but usually I fight for every single phrase.

So here is a new take of the same idea where I bend the 3rd of A from minor to major. Hope I got that right so.
Maybe It was not so clever to do that bend at the end again as I so end on C# . sad.gif
Will spend some time with the Maj pentatonic and dominant arpeggios today.

Hello Gab,

I only had 30 minutes tonight sad.gif Here is anothr take. I did look at that lesson you suggested but it's a little advanced. I did get some ideas though.
I've tried for a bit of a jazzy feel here, you will be able to tell me if I got anywhere near. It was totally improvised hence the errors (I didn't know where I was going at times laugh.gif )

I didn't have much time to work on tone so it's a little bit fizzy. Oh what I would give for Stevie Ray's tone cool.gif

Hi mate, you have to be sure that you are reaching the correct pitch, so play the 6th fret first and then bend from 5th for a few times before you start improvising over the backing. Only little detail, this trick works better over the I7 chord, in this case A7 so please avoid it when the other two chords are played in the backing. Also, don't use it as a target note, use it as a passing note to a chord tone, preferable the root (A).

I only had 30 minutes tonight sad.gif Here is anothr take. I did look at that lesson you suggested but it's a little advanced. I did get some ideas though.
I've tried for a bit of a jazzy feel here, you will be able to tell me if I got anywhere near. It was totally improvised hence the errors (I didn't know where I was going at times laugh.gif )

I didn't have much time to work on tone so it's a little bit fizzy. Oh what I would give for Stevie Ray's tone cool.gif

That's very cool. I like the rhythm of your phrasing, it can become a bit repetitive after some measures but as we are at a practice stage it's good to repeat ideas to incorporate them. If you want to make your phrasing sound more "jazzy" I recommend you to listen some Scofield or Henderson albums, as well as something from Robben Ford.
