Watch the Connecting Shapes When Improvising Overview online guitar lesson by Rob Garland from Melodic Soloing: Major Scale

This lesson introduces the idea of connecting and moving through shapes when improvising. Be aware of where tones are both inside a shape and moving into the shape that is next.

The chords for the jam are:
|Dmaj7 |Amaj7 |Dmaj7 |Amaj7 |F#m7 |
|C#m7 |Bm7 E7|A6 ||

The tempo is 130 BPM, a IV-I-IV-I-vi-iii-ii V-I progression in the key of A, therefore once again all the notes in those chords are diatonic, meaning they are all from one key, in this case the A major scale.

Practice in one shape, then connecting several shapes with bends, slurs, and slides. It's important to see where the shapes overlap.

We're also combining Shapes 6 and 1 in the key of A.
