Watch the Minor Mute online guitar lesson by Shane Theriot from Rhythm Mojo

This is another groove where we have two key centers, so any licks or melodic ideas you use will have to be adjusted accordingly to work over each chord. I use the wah pedal as a filter or sequencer to suggest a rhythmic pulse in this one. (It's nice with a bit of delay as well.) I use some of the 3rds (Triad Concepts) and superimposing a maj7 shape over a minor chord. Right hand mutes are also important when playing some of these ideas, so be aware of that. By now, a lot of the voicings I'm showing you may be familiar, but if not, be sure and get them under your fingers.
