Welcome to this guitar course! Our focus will be adding melody in your solos: we will look at three main sources to use in order to achieve this goal. These are:
- Simple arpeggio: we will see how to apply the CAGED system to ‘see’ a chord across the fretboard and learn how to play it in a melodic way (arpeggios are essentially ‘broken’ chords, chords played one note at a time).
- Chord chasing arpeggios: we will use multiple chords at the same time as our guide in choosing which notes to play and build melodic phrases to include in our solo.
- Pentatonic: we will extend our note choice to the pentatonic scale.
- Diatonic/Complete: this is where we take all notes from the diatonic scale into account, which also include everything we have used so far. This is the approach we would use in a typical situation whensoloing over a chord progression, moving between different sources to add variation to our playing and keep the listeners engaged.
We will examine each approach over three different chord progressions, listening to some examples and discussing them.
