Learn Scales

This is a good exercise to help expand your improvisation vocabulary. First, learn a few scales.

A nice dark G Phyrgian(SP?) will work well ()=root(the G note's)

- - (3)- -4- -6 -
 
- - -3- -5- -6- -

- - -3- (5)- -6- - 

- - -3- -5- - -- - 

- - -3- -4- -6- - - 

- - (3)- -4- -6---  
  • Play that a few times just to hear what it sounds like. Now play a phrase that is 4 notes long but avoid the root. Sounds kinda incomplete doesn't it? Now play that phrase again but end it with a new note that is the root.
  • Now play the scale in different ways. Such as two steps at a time.(ex. 3--4--4--6). or two strings
