Watch the Pedal Tones: 6 online guitar lesson by Robbie Calvo from SoloCraft

The chord tones of A major 7 are A, C#, E, G# and these would all be cool pedal tones over that chord. Our IV chord, D major 7, consists of D, F#, A, C#. In this example we are going to use an F# as a pedal tone over the D chord. You are probably finding that the string skips or intervallic steps are much harder to articulate than normal lead guitar phrases but this is good practice for your picking technique and is going to prepare you for the intervallic lines section of SoloCraft. Let's try the new idea over our track.
