Watch the F# Aeolian online guitar lesson by Robbie Calvo from Power Concepts
In this Power Concepts lesson, you'll be applying the F# minor pentatonic scale over an F# Aeolian chord progression. An F# Aeolian chord progression is created by using chords derived from the A major scale, however the progression will resolve to the VI minor chord, F# Minor.
The F# minor pentatonic scale is also derived from the A major scale and contains all of the Sweet Notes found in the F# Minor7 chord, which is going to make applying this Aeolian Power Concept so sweet and sassy sounding.
F# minor pentatonic contains I - b3 - 4 - 5 - b7. All of the scale tones are Sweet Notes, except the 4th (B), so you'll have every chord tone at your disposal when improvising over an Aeolian progression. Be careful not to resolve a phrase on the 4th as it will sound weak and unsettled unless the F# minor is an F# minor 11 chord or sus4.
Check out the video and sample solo to hear this Aeolian Power Concept in action, then apply your own F# minor pentatonic licks over the Aeolian jam track.
