Watch the Playing In Position: Aeolian online guitar lesson by Robbie Calvo from Power Play: Minor
This Aeolian chord progression has some tempo to it and therefore could prove a little tricky at first. I found that laying back and playing simple lines helped me to stay with the beat and not get overwhelmed with playing complex lines that I couldn’t articulate at this tempo. My intent was to make these solos melodic, target the sweet notes, bring out the Aeolian flavor by hitting the minor 6th in each key and create something worth listening to. That’s a lot to be thinking about when improvising and by now you’ll understand just how challenging this program is.
Let’s take a listen and see what happened in the hot seat.
