Watch the Week 2: Building the Major Line Over Tonic and Lydian online guitar lesson by Joe Pinnavaia from Guitar Soloing Essentials
Soloing over Major chords can sometimes make you feel a little more "happy" than you would like to be! How do you create fresh lines without sounding soft? One way is by use of major pentatonics from the root note as well as the 5th of the major chord.
F Lydian BT - Use Both F major pentatonic and C major pentatonic over the F major 7 chord and then C major pentatonic and G major pentatonic on the second half of the progression, which would be C major to G major.
