Food For Thought
The ‘right note’ when improvising will always be subjective. It’s a choice – your choice. A very spicy note, something dissonant, might be perfect in a jazz solo but would probably sound out of place in a pop ballad. Using only chord tones will sound

Learn To Read Music!
Okay, so we’ve all heard the joke. ‘How do you make a guitarist stop playing? Stick a piece of music in front of him!’ As amusing (or not!) as this may be, it’s true that there are many of us that don’t read music at all. And while this is no great d

Jam Tracks Tips
We start with a slow 12-bar blues in the key of C#. In terms of scales, you’ll get off to a great start by hitting up the good old C# Minor Pentatonic (C#-E-F#-G#-B) and adding some feeling, using articulations like bends and slides. This is a very o

There’s no specific tone required to play these examples, but Mike uses a smooth overdriven sound that’s not too front-end heavy. Set your amp or pedal so that it’s driving but still retains the fundamental note. Harder or softer picking should be en

In The Woodshed
When playing over a static Dominant chord, the first few sonic options we tend to gravitate towards are the Mixolydian mode (1-2-3-4-5-6- b 7], the Major Pentatonic (1-2-3-5-6) and of course the Minor Pentatonic and/or Blues scale (1- b 3-4- b 5-5- b

It may seem strange to link waltz and funk music but, aside from the fact that a waltz is a form of dance music, funk and R&B aren’t exclusively based in 4/4. While 4/4 is the simplest to dance to, it’s not uncommon for these genres to use different
