Q: I was wondering if you could do a video on how to create a guitar solo over a certain chord progression, and how to study the notes to find the key center of the progression? I believe a progression like the one in your video for sliding open chords would be best since I have down the concept of Pentatonic and soloing over simple blues pieces. I believe a solo over the sliding chords would sound more unique than my own bland solos over blues. - Josh Portland, OR. A: Chords that do not seem to clearly follow a connection to a common harmony will require the musician to analyze the notes being performed and then group those notes into one key center. Now, unfortunately that's not always possible - which means there will be times when the only way to create a melody, or play a solo over a set of chord changes will be to literally play upon each chord as it appears in the progression. The complete lesson article for this video will be available on the Creative Guitar Studio website shortly.
