No yet, so I will start working with arpeggios today and try soemthing that better connects with the backing track.
Thanks Tom

Good. Take your time to learn and incorporate each arpeggio.

Hello Gab,

I've tried something a bit different. I've played only the A7 arpeggio along with the backing to try and get it into my fingers. Once I'm comfortable with it I'l move onto the D7 and then E7, then I'll combine A7 and D7, then A7 and E7, then D7 and E7. This will take time but that's the way the cookie crumbles wink.gif

Cheers buddy.

Good idea Phil! You can try playing A7 arpeggio over A7 and then Blues scale over the other two chords to keep playing along the whole backing track. Try it and tell me how it feels!

Now that I know the shapes here is my first simple recording using the arpeggios only. My goal was to follow strictly the chords of the backing track. next would be to get more interesting lines and add phrasing.

One questions: is there special reason to use this E7 shape you gave us? I was simply taking the D7 shape moving it two frets up.
Thanks Tom.

Good first try Tom! You followed the chords correctly on this one. Take some more time to get familiar with the shapes and slowly start creating musical phrases.

About E7 shape, the only reason is to learn another dominant shape.

Okay, that is a good reason, so I will use the other E shape too.

Hello Gab,
This might be a silly question but why are there different amounts of notes in the arpeggios? A7=10, D7=9, E7=8
Cheers

Dominant arpeggios have 4 notes: Root, Major 3rd, Perfect 5th and Minor 7th. This shapes are shared starting from the roots, so depending where you start you can reach more or lesson quantity of repetitions of the 4 notes. This is just a way to visualize shapes not the only way to play the four notes from the arpeggios (in different octaves)

Good job Laurent! Please continue experimenting to get familiar with the shapes everywhere to then slowly start doing it less obvious as you'll hear on jazz blues players. But don't worry it now, please continue using strictly dominant arpeggios for a while.

It''s just to show that I am still working on it. Now I got all three arpeggios shapes under my fingers but I have a hard time finding some nice blues lines. Also I am so very concentrated on chord progression of the backing track so that it is tricky to improvise in addition. Playing with the chords is really something new.

Great job Tom! You are on the right track! It's just a matter of time now to get more comfortable with the shapes and start building more musical phrases.

By now just work with arpeggios, then, the things will sound cooler and cooler. Be patient. wink.gif

I am Gab, not saying I've fulfilled this one but came to a brick wall with it rolleyes.gif I'll still keep giving it time a few times a week though.

Cheers

ASSIGNMENT IV: Minor Blues

Hello guys! My new lesson based on Gary Clark Jr's style is a good excuse to get into Minor Blues in order to continue exploring different blues approaches.

Minor blues used minor seventh chords instead of dominant chords giving it a different "feel" which sounds darker and sadder. The most used minor blues progression is a bit more complex than this one that we'll use today but in some sense it's related. I recommend you to work first on this assignment's progression and then get into the most "classic" minr blues progression that you can explore HERE.

The backing track that we'll use is this one: Attached File  Gary_Clark_Jr_Style.mp3 ( 1.46MB ) Number of downloads: 12


It is based on a blues scale riff in Em during the I grade, followed by m7 chords on IV and V grades.


Approach 1

The first approach will consist on using E minor blues along the whole backing. When doing it, try to work on the scale with a horizontal tendency for phrases. Start playing the scale up and down on each string and then try to create melodies using the whole fretboard.

E minor blues scale:




Approach 2:

The second approach would be to use the minor pentatonic of each chord. So you would be using E minor pentatonic over the main riff, A minor pentatonic over Am7 and B minor pentatonic over Bm7.








Approach III (Only advanced players)

You can experiment using E blues scale over main riff, and E minor scale over IVm7 and Vm7.



We don't have deadline so take your time to practice this and feel free to share many takes here.

Who is in?
