  • Greetings from Granada (Andalucia, Spain).

    Here I have composed a R&B soul to improvise in A Major. You go up inside Pentatonic Major scale from one position to another. Also, I use A Major scale (Ionian) in order to make it more melodic sounding.

    Music Style:
    Rhytm & Blues Soul

    Tonality & Scales:
    A
    A ionian
    A Pentatonic Major

    Techniques:
    bending, sliding, 6ths intervals, double stops

    Sound:
    I used a Fender Telecaster Hot Rod 52' with a clean sound.

    Tuning:
    Standard tuning: E, A, D, G, B, E

    Tempo & Beat:
    114bpm (Slow parts at 57 bpm)
    4/4
