A favorite band I like is the Steely Dan. But, somehow the way they put together their chords, I can never just play one scale over those progressions. Andrew, is this just because the harmonies in this style are of a jazz nature, or is this because I don't know my modes well enough?Dean -- Long Beach, CA. USAA: Soloing problems over the chord changes found in pop jazz music are generally difficult for guitarists because of two reasons. #1, a lack of knowledge surrounding how to properly analyze chord progressions and #2, a lack of overall skill at applying the; modes, and the Ma & Mi pentatonic scales. In the video I focus on this issue by looking over one of the primary harmonic ideas that pop jazz commonly applies into it's chord progressions, "Modal Interchange." I also give several examples of licks that can work well when learning how to play over this style.MY TWITTER FEED:http://twitter.com/andrewwasson____________________________________ANDREW WASSON - Personal Website:http://www.andrewwasson.com(weekly postings - w/FREE Guitar Handouts)____________________________________Visit our Creative Guitar Studio Zazzle page:http://www.zazzle.com/creativeguitarstudio/gifts____________________________________OFFICIAL Creative Guitar Studio Products Website:http://www.creativeguitarstudio.com/____________________________________SOUND CLOUD: Listen to some of my songs.http://soundcloud.com/creativeguitarstudio/____________________________________2nd YOU TUBE CHANNEL: The Guitar BlogAndrew's Popular "GuitarBlog" YouTube Channel:http://www.youtube.com/guitarblogupdate____________________________________Facebook Fan Page:http://www.facebook.com/pages/Andrew-Wasson/76585035288____________________________________Creative Guitar Studio on Blogspot:http://creativeguitarstudio.blogspot.com/____________________________________
