Hello, Im trying to get some info on this lesson that Muris Varajic has. Writing A Solo. Looks like he is harmonizing the major scale and emphazing the 3rd on each chord. But on some of his notes there not from the chord. Example when he gets to the Am chord he is focusing on the C note but he plays the F note and a G note also. Im trying to understand why he played those notes that are not part of Am. Are they just considered passing notes or is something more here like maybe there part of the Major scale and any note from this scale will work. Im new to theory and wanting to start my own solo's so I'm trying to understant it.

Hi Georgie, sorry for the delay here. I've missed this thread.

Your suspect is right. When creating a solo, one of the most used approaches is focusing phrasing on notes from the chord but using other notes from the scale to generate some kind of tension that is then released to the chord tone. Those notes are usually played as passing notes (you can even use notes that are out of the scale as passing notes if you do it wisely, check out some outside playing lessons) while other times the guitarist can stay a bit on one of this notes that are part of the scale but not from the chord, generating something similar to what you get with extended chords.

F and G are the 6th and 7th intervals of the Am natural scale.

Posterboy is right. Those notes aren't from the chord but are from the scale.
