Question

Asked by Joćo on 2000-05-22
Hello! I'm sedding you this mail for some doubts about coposing soloing songs. I have already loocked in some tabs and i've seen that sometimes musitians don't follow the rules in relation Chord/Scale What are the rules about chromatic scales? When I'm conposing a song can I play cromatic scales with any kind of chord? About these Chords when I'm composing a song Can I do for exemple the following sequence Cmaj 7 , Cm7 , Emaj7 , G7 , Amaj and Bmaj I have seen in some tabs that some musitians don't follow the following rules: If you make chords from the C major scale, you'll get: Cmaj7 , Dm7 , Em7 , Fmaj7 , G7 , Am7 and Bdim7 Each one corresponds to a modal scale that you can use for your solos. For example, if you have a G7-chord, then you can play a mixolydian solo over it. Learn the following scales by heart. Play them in different keys. For example, raise the tone a whole step, you'll get: Dmaj7, Em7, F#m7, Gmaj7, A7 , Bm7 and C#m7-5. And the scales D Ionian, E Dorian, F# phrygian, G lydian, A mixolydian, B aeolian and C# locrian. I apreatiate you ,if you answer me about these doubts, and I hope you undersatand what I mean. See ya! Joćo Cardoso Portugal

I am apauld by this response. Get a life- Joao, excellent question. Yes there are "rules" music, but the main rule is just to play and let your ears be the judge. Notes and chords "outside the box" are very useful to create tension in a progression. Don't pay any attention to biggots-
