How To Practice Melodic Guitar Playing The Easy Way

►Free Theory!

In today’s video I want to talk you about something that I like to call: “Creative Research”

The main concept is to think in zones of the fretboard associating chords and scales and the only theory that you need to know is that chords are extracted from scales.

You can choose any scale, extract a group of notes and find a chord that works over that scale. The idea is to play a line and then tie it to a chord shape.

An absolute master of this type of playing was Jimi Hendrix!

    First visit, looks very useful, but of course won't be as easy as it looks. Practice and practice and time. But watching it dawned on me. Solo the notes in the chord. Makes sense. Make music, as you said. Great lesson. Thanks.
