stratmaster: getting cold tonight here in Baltimore

mrtbone: warm in florida

Lyle: Hi

stratmaster: maybe i can learn a few licks and heat this place up

stratmaster: LOL

mrtbone: Hi

stratmaster: hi

Lyle: Here's the jam track for tonight:



Lyle: The chords for the jam track are:



Lyle: What scale of choice would you use?

Lyle: to improvise against these chords?

mrtbone: A mafor

stratmaster: a minor

Lyle: A major yes, for the first 2 chords. Then A7 and D7 chords need a better scale. I'd go with the A major pentatonic for the first three chords:



Lyle: Because all three of those chords have A C# E in them, the A major triad.

Lyle: During the D7 chord I'd go with the Am pentatonic because the D7 chord has a C natural in it, not a C# like in the A major chords:



Lyle: Here's an example of a riff made from the A major pentatonic. The very last note of the riff bends to a C natural, right during the D7 chord. Notice the bluesy sound it makes:





Lyle: Another way to make up a riff you can use is to play arpeggios for the chords.

Lyle: A plain A major arpeggio is:



Lyle: AMaj7 is just like that but with the 7th degree thrown in:



Lyle: Over the A7 chord you can play A7 and A9 arpeggios. Here's A9:



Lyle: During the D97 chord you can play D7 or D9 arpeggios. Here's a D9:



Lyle: Put them all together to follow the chord progression and you might get something like this:
