Guitar soloing in c major
guitar soloing in c major
I will try to explain how to play solo with easy.
for the beginning I will start on the scale of C major
(C-d-e-f-g-a-b-c). before I explain the steps of the tone,
I will explain the basic formula of the major scale itself :
1 - 1 - 1/2 - 1 - 1 - 1 - 1/2
thing to remember this formula because is very important for you to play a solo with your instrument.
and now, I will now explain how the use of the formula is:
1 = distance from C to D> Major
1 = distance from D to E> minor
1/2 = distance from E to F> minor
1 = distance from F to G> Major
1 = distance from G to A> Major / Dominant 7
1 = distance from A to B> minor
1/2 = distance from B to C> minor / m7b5
so when we play in the major scale we can use the formula, the above example is when we use the scale C (do = C).
and the conclusion you can play solo in C using the results obtained from the formula (c, d, e, f, g, a, b, c).
and for the keys that you can use are:
C major - D minor - E minor - F Major - G major / dominant - A minor - B minor/m7b7
Thus is the music theory to play a solo that I can give to you, hopefully useful for you.
