Watch the SECTION 1: One Chord Vamp Studies online guitar lesson by Robbie Calvo from The Power of Five
I've chosen to apply our 'Power Of Five' approach over one chord vamps first so that we can concentrate on hearing and understanding the potential of this new improvisational tool without the distraction of chord changes. You will learn to focus in on the tones associated with each fretboard location of the minor pentatonic box over an A7 chord and the chord extensions on that chord quality. You'll then learn the several fretboard locations for the 'Pent Box' over an Ami11 chord. Lastly you'll be playing over an Amaj7#11 chord vamp, creating melodic lines and motifs with just that one scale shape as your melodic vehicle.
