  • Hello GMC and welcome to my Writing a Solo serial!! :)

    In this serial I'll try to give you some tips and hints
    you should eventually think of
    when composing or improvising a solo.
    Both composing and improvising are actualy moments
    when you're writing a pice of music,
    only difference is with improvising when you
    do it "in a walk" way.

    In this very lesson
    we will work on "Strong Notes" topic.
    Those are notes that you set as important
    and you do everything to serve them well!
    Here we have key of F major and chord
    progression is F, Gm, Am, Bb, C, Dm, Bb, C and F.
    What I did here is that I took 3rd of each chord
    and signed it as a strong note
    so we have these strong notes :
    A, Bb, C, D, E, F, D, E and A.

    You'll notice that I'm doing a lot around
    every strong note but at the end
    you'll still memorize those notes the best.

    Scale we'll be using is a pure F major scale,
    tempo is 75 bpm and I used Guitar Rig 3,
    will post a patch for you latter on.

    Have fun and see you soon! :)
