The Grand Au­di­to­rium 914ce is a beau­ti­ful Floren­tine cut­away elec­tro-acous­tic with ex­quis­ite As­cen­sion in­lays, ebony fin­ger­board and fine trim­ming. With a sitka spruce top and In­dian rose­wood back and sides it also fea­tures an ebony arm cham­fer for added play­ing com­fort. With Tay­lor’s Ex­pres­sion Sys­tem 2 elec­tron­ics it sounds mag­nif­i­cent acous­ti­cally and am­pli­fied. Our first track is a slow B mi­nor blues and uses mi­nor chords through­out the pro­gres­sion (Bm-Em-F#m), with the ex­cep­tion of the very last chord of the sequence (F#). Use B mi­nor Pen­ta­tonic (B-D-E-F#-A) and B nat­u­ral mi­nor scale (B-C#-D-E-F#-G-A), as well as B Har­monic mi­nor (B-C#-D-EF#-G-A#) for those F# chords. This jam is great for get­ting your clas­sic hard rock shred go­ing! The track stays in the key of D mi­nor through­out and I sug­gest us­ing D mi­nor Pen­ta­tonic scale (D-F-G-A-C), D mi­nor Blues scale (D-F-G-G#-A-C) and the

(D-E-F-G-A-Bb-C). D mi­nor scale Let the shred­ding com­mence! This ex­tra slow jazz track is based on the stan­dard II-V-I pro­gres­sion in A mi­nor. The

Bm7b5 (IIm7b5), chords are E7 (V7) and Am (Im). I sug­gest us­ing A Nat­u­ral mi­nor scale (A-B-C-D-E-F-G), as well as ap­ply­ing A Har­monic mi­nor scale (A-B-C-D-E-F-G#) over the E7 (V7) chords. No­tice that only one note changes be­tween those two scales (the G be­comes a G#), which ef­fec­tively pulls things to­wards and neatly re­solves on the fol­low­ing Am chord. You can get your Sa­tri­ani, Vai and Zappa-style licks out on this Ly­dian jam. The chords are E and F#7/E. Nat­u­rally E Ly­dian (E-F#-G#-A#-B-C#-D#) is your best friend here. You can also try ex­per­i­ment­ing with the three Pen­ta­tonic scales in­her­ent within E Ly­dian: G# mi­nor Pen­ta­tonic (G#-B-C#-D#-F#), C# mi­nor Pen­ta­tonic (C#-E-F#-G#-B), and D# mi­nor Pen­ta­tonic (D#-F#G#-A#-C#).
