Hello, let me just say I love your stuff and I have double my guitar playing ability in the last 6 months due to Riffinteractive!

Here is my question(s). When jamming a G C D C progression should I attempt to lead a scale of G only or should I attempt to follow the progression. In other words, play notes from the G scale while over the G bar, play notes from the C scale over the C bar, play notes from the D scale over the D bar? I feel pretty stale just staying G...

My second jam question is much more difficult. I listen to some of the great rhythm players and they do alot of what appears to me as "harmonizing", whats this all about?

TIA

Hey thanks! You might want to try the Hendrix approach where you play major pentatonic scales over the I VI V I chord changes. You shift from G Maj pentatonic, to C Maj pentatonic, etc. This approach sounds very melodic and has such a cool sound.

On your second question you should check out the lesson techniques I showed in the Folk Guitar Legends lesson on Jim Croce style, even though this lesson is shown on the acoustic guitar you can apply the interval/harmony techniques on electric as well! Check it out:
