Watch the Learn 3 Scales! online guitar lesson by Bill Evans from The Language of Improvisation
I demonstrate 3 of the most important scales. Major, minor, and dominant 7th and describe how to practice them and use them in a solo. I show you how they can be a starting off point to your vocabulary when learning how to improvise. Learn them in every key. Play them slowly, fast, medium, swing, up, down, every way possible! Really get to know them and you will play better. These are chords you will find in just about any song you will ever play. Give them the proper respect they deserve.
