TECHNIQUEFOCUS SCALE CHOICES
To get the most out of this feature, make sure you can play these scales in all five CaGed positions and familiarise yourself with the suggested applications:
b3-4-5- b7* r- (use in tonic position over I, Iv and v; can also be transposed to start on root of v chord but can only be transposed to root of Iv in minor keys).
b7 r-2-3-4-5-6- (use in tonic position over I chord, but can also be transposed to Iv and v chords).
r-2-3-5-6* (use in tonic position over I and v, can be transposed to Iv and v chords also). *You can freely add the blues scale passing note to both of these scales.
Phrygian doMinant Mode:
b2-3-4-5- b6- b7 r- (use in root position over v7 altered chords - this is the same as playing the tonic Harmonic Minor scale).
