I wonder what chords used for the backing track?
Hi mate, the chords from the backing are:
Am - E/G# - G - D/F#
then at 00:40, the progression is Am - D/F#
Please let me know if this helps and if you have any other questions.
this helps a lot, thank you!
Hi Gabriel, now I know why I've had problems to find out the chords: because of the a minor scale I've not expect an E (with G#) or a D (with F#). Does this not scream for harmonic minor oder dorian? Or as a question: why does it sound so excellent nevertheless?
Yes! You're right about the scales. Ivan focuses his solo on A minor pentatonic, and A aeolian when it sounds good, avoiding playing it when the chords E/G# and D/F# appear, which as you've said, are borrowed from Harmonic minor and Dorian mode. This technique is called Modal Interchange and it's a great arranging and composing harmony trick.
