This breakthrough guide for guitarists will unlock some of the mystery behind playing over chords and progressions. Working through this material and these concepts will help any guitarist learn how to play the right notes, at the right time – all the time. Each chapter centers around a different chord type and progression and includes various soloing concepts, phrasing options, and melodic approaches to playing over chords in both major and minor keys. This includes playing over basic major and minor chords and eventually moves into 7th chords and their extensions.
After the basic premise is introduced and various targeting concepts are explored, there's a section covering how to apply intervals melodically, in addition to sharing the “Pentatonic Highway” targeted soloing approach, which will help you navigate the fretboard using the famous Pentatonic-based shifting concept.
This method encourages the use of looping and loop pedals, which will make practicing this material much easier on your own. Additionally, you can have other guitarists or musicians perform the static chords and progressions behind you as you practice these concepts and ideas.
If you're searching for a method that will help you understand the options that are available when soloing and playing over individual chords and progressions – Target Tones is the key to helping you unlock these commonly misunderstood areas of melodic soloing and improvisation. Includes access to musical audio examples online.
