I sometimes add a diminished scale and resolve back to the D minor scale.
Well thanks a bunch for letting me know.
There are lots of possible Dm chord progressions, from jazz to who knows what. Are there vocals to work around or is it a boring twenty minute blues fretw*nk?
The question is too vague. I was serious in asking, whats the question?
There are 3 contexts for D minor.
Depending upon the mode, the chord progression matters. Context matters.
Aeolian. (Natural minor)
Check out my post. It's in there.
Took words out of my mouth. (except fretw*nk, that one I'll add to my vocabulary lol)
I try to always play the changes, and go for the chord tones. I know it's cheesy and pedestrian, but me likes it...
If I'm thrown in the fire (something that doesn't happen anymore), on stage without any notion of the progression and without any bars to listen and look at the bass player, I'd play super safe and go D Minor Pentatonic. Call me crazy, but the lead guitarrist doesn't get the luxury of unnoticed mistakes.
Also, depending on your local jurisdiction, you're only allowed to play in D Minor if you're suffering from some documented major grief.
I would see what other chords are being used, then use that to decide whether to play D Dorian, D Phrygian, D Aeolian or something else.
These are the suite of chords I choose from in Dm. I always solo in D Aeolian
Dm, Edim, Fmaj, Gm, Am, Bbmaj, Cmaj, and the 7th’s too.
But I’m a weirdo
Ok ok ok............you win, all you clever dick guys here have given me one great Phrygian pounding headache that has become a real pain in the Aeolian with all this theory stuff.
Think I'll continue to just play notes that sound "right" with whatever is going on musically at the time. As long as its in the key of "H sharp" LOL
thats because those chords are in the key of Fmaj, and D IS aeolian in Fmaj.
of course, i would play in A phrygian.
quick......somebody tell me what scale im playing (very sloppily) in this.....
didnt listen but suppose you played some kind of Hungarian scale
well, im not from hungaria, so.....
you wont believe what it is.
I await with bated breath.
its a damn C major scale......wankin on a c maj man. nothing more. except at about 2:20 or so i hit a " wrong" note.
oh wait.... that was the jazzy part.
