Chord Tone Soloing

Lesson Info

In this tutorial I am going to give you an introduction to the world of "Chord Tone Soloing." In short, "Chord Tone Soloing" means that when soloing you are only using notes of the chords by which you are playing over. If you are playing over a G chord, you solo only using the notes G, B, D, etc. This doesn't sound like an exciting idea in the beginning, but having the discipline to work with this idea will do wonders for your soloing and phrasing. I have provided a handful of progressions and examples along with backing tracks that you can explore and than take it into your own musical universe. Work through each example slowly and really grasp the concept of using chord tones. You will be glad you did.
