The backing track we're using today is in the key of A minor, and the usual rule of thumb says that you can play minor over major, but not the other way around.

But since so much of the bluesy rock sound has to do with that wonderful blend of major and minor it is possible to go the other way around and play major over minor to create some cool tension. In this lesson we'll explore this sound.
