Hi Desi, I was watching a video of you soloing over Blessed be the Name, and you mentioned that at certain points,not always obviously, you would hit a note to coincide with that chord being played in the progression. i.e if chords (just pulling these out of the air) are c then g then d. you would play solo then make sure to hit g when g chord comes up, solo some more and purposley hit d note when d chord comes up, and on and on as you wish to or not. my ability right now is playing appropriate scales over songs musically using about 3 of the patterns, but i am not good at hitting a particular note when a particular chord comes up.
Soloing question(2 posts) (2 voices)
My question(s) then- 1-should i strive to learn to hit a particular one by ear? ie -"i know x sound is coming up and i know that x note in this pattern will sound like it" ( i use x here meaning that in my head i know what the sound will be, not necessarily the actual chord coming up)or 2- should i learn the number system for the chord progression , and learn to know that, for exmple, the 4 chord is coming up, and i KNOW that this string and this fret of so and so pattern is the 4 note. (this takes my ear out of it but makes my have to know the numbers well, and be able to call them up quick on the fly)3rd- i don't think this one is practical- learn to know that, for example, a d chord is coming up and i KNOW that, in the pattern i am playing, which note is the d. (in this i'd have to basically know every note on the fretboard so i can apply this in any given key, at least with the number system, the numbers stay the same in the pattern regardless of key)sorry so long a post. i know i should endeavour to learn it all eventually, but i want to make sure i am not fixating on the wrong method out of the box and making it hard on myself. Thanks brother for any help, and also to anyone else out there who could lend a hand. God bless!Posted 10 months ago #
