  • Hello GMCers

    Welcome to the fourth dynamics and phrasing lesson. This backing track for some reasons inspires me to play for hours, it kind of has a retro feel, and it is perfect for exploring the Dorian Blues scale.

    Many times when improvising I start by placing my hand in the commonnly overused minor pentatonic shape. It is easy, safe and sounds good, then I built the solo around this shape in different octaves and adding a few notes.

    You could play it safe by playing G Minor but you would miss so much. Explore the G Dorian, Blues, chromatics work fine as well when done with taste.

    Look at the first video for a spoken explanation on very simple but useful phrasing and dynamics ideas.
