Watch the C7 - Bb7 Vamp online guitar lesson by Brad Carlton from CAGED Dominant
Brad looks at visualizing common tones to add cohesiveness to the changes. Using the limitations of the arpeggio’s pattern as a motif, Brad improvises over this jazzy two-chord progression. He also incorporates rhythmic motifs to keep a textural similarity within the solo. In addition to the use of connecting tones, Brad achieves some killer sounds using other devices such as chromatic passing tones and blues scale tones.
