I continually "re-learn" stuff. Oh...that's how that works!
I always try to arpeggiate triads, I don’t seem to get them sound good. Maybe my fingers are still not fast nor confident enough. I even jammed over your improv trying to understand how you managed to fill all spaces accurately.
I tried sliding from E to G then pick E and D, it didn’t sound good do I need to learn licks or arpeggios? Or just keep trying to figure out a lick/arpeggio?
The arpeggio is the launching point for "licks". Arpeggios are simply a chord played as single notes. Dig this:
Triads arpeggiated, complete with low hanging fruit.
Thank you I’ll give it another try
Here's some more. This was another challenge:
Triads are the launch point.
The original challenge thread:
Very nice, @fezz parka I'll try them. Thank you!
You may have seen this before, but he talks about the same thing:
@fezz parka I practice triads everyday as you have advised me and play with over a simple progression. I just can't seem to get the best out of them
It takes time my friend. Time to get them into your head and fingers. Remember that simple and straight forward is best when focusing. Let it fly when you're having fun.
Thank you you're right, it's similar to changing between chords, it takes time.
I just read the above with utmost attention. You mean, if I add any of 2,4,6,7 to the triad, it would sound good? something like sus/add?
Look at both of the videos of me playing. You'll see/hear what I'm talking about.
You have fast fingers. I have a slow processor
0.24 you play triads, Dm (DFA), Bb (BbDF) and C (CEG), then you add F to Dm & Bb and G to C. Triads 1, 3, 5 no extra pent nor diatonic.
I'm analyzing the second video.
"Low hanging fruit" includes adding octaves to the triad.
It's a safe way to add to the triad by using the same interval at a different pitch. Think of it as primary colors.
I'll focus on triads with octaves first, and then the rest of hanging fruits.
I can’t help not playing this in my mind while practicing. I’m not being creative at all. I have to admit that Lil Wayne can solo better than me I’ll give my guitar and myself a break for tonight.
Play G major pentatonic. Single note lines. And keep it simple. It'll come.
I tried. I neglected C and F#. I even couldn’t play a basic solo in G nor C major. Btw, I’m only using the backing tracks you’ve provided me with. I lost my magic before I become famous lol.
I’ll give myself another chance tomorrow, I hope I don’t disappoint myself
Don't think of it as "playing a solo". Think of it as creating a melody. A theme. Thematic development is why most people listen to music. A recurring theme that they can identify and enjoy. Blazing solos and the listeners who identify with them are a minority. A melodic hook will grab everyone, even the blazing solo people.
I was able to create a nice lick using G triads by adding 2 & 4, but I failed to incorporate it with the backing track. Maybe I should play over a looped G or G & C or something similar with slower tempo. I didn’t watch the video above, I’ll watch now. Thank you my friend, really appreciate
