Welcome guitar fans,
todays episode of my guitar blog is about improvising over jazz chords. The weekend jazz jam is about finding out which scale or arpeggio fits over the chords progression below. As always, you´re welcome to send an email with your questions & i´ll try to help you out. On monday, you will find the right scales and arpeggios right here in this episode. But today you have to work it out by yourself.
Have a lot of fun.
Dm7 / G7#5 / Cmaj7 / A7#5
As I told you on friday, here are the Arpeggios for your solo over the chord progression:
Dm7: Use D d dorian (C Major) or the A minor pentatonic scale over this chord. Try to use some chromatic approaches. You can use a d minor 7 arpeggio as well.
G7#5: G-phrygian dom. (C harmonic minor) or G altered scale (a flat melodic minor). Try to Play a g dominant 7 arpeggio by adding a E flat.
Cmaj7: You can Play C-ionian (C Major) or C lydian (F Major). You can also Play a Cmaj7-Arpeggio.
A7#5: Like G7#5 but 2 semitones higher.
