Why are the chord notes more important than the scales?
What chord notes can I use to play a solo?
Play 100 guide tone lines
Improvise – guide tone line + more chord notes
Spice it up – quarter notes and eight notes
Add even more chord notes
Show, play and analyse a short solo on “Take the A-train” using chord notes and guide tone lines
Melody together with the chords forms the harmonic layout of a tune. Whereas scales have all notes in them and in this way more chords and functions.
The chord is much more specific in the harmony and a scale is much broader.
