[Synner Sunday] Acoustic Jam

#SundaySynner A minor jam
Hey there buddy, great rhythm! You're really going for a great concept here that truly helps build your ear, chord and scale training. It's NOT an easy concept to do, but you can break it down and make it simple.

If you are going to do something like this, I recommend going in and out of chords and scales a lot more. In this, you played your chord progression and then went into lead for pretty much the rest of the video.

That's not WRONG, and you CAN do that. But do get more benefit out of this, I would recommend jamming on your A minor chord then sliding up and do a little A minor lick. Then let's say the next chord in your progression is E minor. You then jam on your E minor chord then perform a lead part out of E minor.

This is done a lot by blues and jazz guitarists and it really helps you HEAR how things fit over chords. Does that make sense?

What was the opening chord progression? Sounded amazing.
I'd like to be all super smart and tell you exactly what the chords are, however I'm not smart. Essentially A minor and G where with A minor I move around the top note following the pentatonic scale and with the G i'm just moving my index finger up a string. :)

Thanks Jak, makes a lot of sense. I definately got lost in the lead part where it feels like I needed to take a breath as it were. I'll give it a go in the next one.

Yeah it takes me a second to identify my own chords myself. It sounds good though. You should expand on it
