Watch the One Chord Type Amaj7(#11) online guitar lesson by Robbie Calvo from The Power of Five
You'll notice that I open my solo by honing in on the #11 found in the chord. I'm doing this to establish and outline the Lydian sound this chord creates. It was my intention to create a melodic solo using very simple phrases and motifs to demonstrate that the minor pentatonic scale creates melodies and hooks beyond what we have grown accustomed to within our normal blues soloing. This is a very musical and versatile scale and I love it!
