Watch the Improvising over a Jam Track Shape 5 Overview online guitar lesson by Rob Garland from Melodic Soloing: Major Scale

In this lesson, we're making melodies over a chord progression in the key of C. Try playing over the funky maj7 jam. Again, the chords for this jam are Cmaj7-Fmaj7-Am7-Fmaj7-Am7-Fmaj7-Dm7-G7, even though I forgot to mention several of them in the video!

A I-IV-vi-IV-vi-IV-ii-V progression in the key of C, therefore once again all the notes in those chords are diatonic, meaning they are again all from the C major scale.

Improvise melodies using Shape 5. Be aware of bends within the shape.
