GO TO: Andrew Wasson of Creative Guitar Studio answers a viewers question... Q: Every time I try and improvise over chord changes I miss the good tones. Do you have an exercise that helps to build skills in how to target the notes of a chord. Really what I'm after, is some kind of an exercise that will challenge me and get my skills up in the area of Not Playing What I Don't Want. - Oscar, Australia A: The first steps that I'd suggest taking in your practice, are those of; slowing down, getting highly defined with this idea, and simplifying the practice approach. It's not difficult to have your mind miss tones -- many times it might even feel as if there is a, "wall," in your mind between what you hear in your head and what you get from your guitar. The solution is concentrating on chord tones. In the lesson we'll begin with taking a specific chord, we'll look at it's chord tones and then we'll analyze how other chord types built off of the same root (having their tones change when the chord types change).
