Improvisation Tips


Happy 2012!

Anthony Wellington did a clinic for Aguilar and he was sharing some soloing tips.

First you loop this chord progression: Am7 (A C E G) Bm7 (B D F# A) Em7 (E G B D)

If you do not have a looper maybe can ask your guitar or keyboard friend to play.

Instead of thinking arpeggio or modes for each chord, just try to hear and play within the
G major Scale (G A B C D E F#).

Some notes may not sound that nice over the chords, so shift around and hear.

You can explore more ways but this is something that even a beginner can try.

Have fun!
