Targeting Chord Tones
In this tutorial, we are going to examine the technique of playing chord tones in our soloing. This essentially means that we are going to solo playing only the notes in the chords we are playing over, as opposed to just running scales. This technique is very helpful in aiding the listener in hearing the chords you are playing over. This gets you out of the habit of just running scale patterns, and also helps you to sound more authentic in your soloing. In this tutorial, we will be playing these licks without a backing track and will outline the notes in our I, IV, and V chords. Let's get started.
