Ids, I have a question about your improv tip: if I were to have a small chord progression on repeat (C, G, Em), do I/is it advisable to follow either the root note (C) or scales of each chord as they approach OR could I just come up with something that sounds like it fits? This is something I’ve somewhat struggled with, never having a creative mind (granted I only know the shapes of the D Major scale, working on note positions). If it helps, the individuals who inspire me most are Tremonti, Vai, Vivaldi, etc.
Got to add another. Tips on writing and creating riffs and melodies. I remember back like 10 years ago (don’t know how true this is) but a buddy of mine had made noise that Syn would draw inspiration from pop music. I’d like to know how to do this.
