Thank you, that helped a lot! I wasn't sure If I missed the sense of the exercise when I did that.Use your ear. You can land on any note. Some are better targets than others. If it sounds funny, try landing on a different note. If it sounds good to you - then it's right.
It's really all about the chord you're playing over. Each chord has a set of notes that will work over it. Chord tones( notes in the chord) are the safe bet because those notes are in the chord, usually 1 3 5 Than you can always end on the fourth because you can't really go wrong with that one. Then there's the option to create a little tension by using the second, sixth or seventh. I think John Mayer throws in the seventh every once in a while. So no you don't have to end on the same note every time, just make sure it's the right note.Hey there. I tried to Play around with it and tried to play a little solo using the six magic notes. But I found it really awkward to always land on the same Note.
So my question is, should you always try to end your phrases on that key note or should you 'only' end your solo on that note?
the second, sixth and seventh can make up chords(gypsy jazz, jazz etc), usually combined with the 1, 3 and 5. So harmonically they sound alright together. However they aren't really the smoothest sounding chords so using those as your ending note when you're playing over a 1-3-5 chord and not a 1-3-5-7 chord for example can sound really cool but also has a certain tension to it so it can grab a listeners attention. It's definetely a choice to use it and you should be wary to not use it to much but it is something to consider every once in a while.Thanks Ids! I get that part with the notes in the chord. But what you mean with the second, sixth and seventh still goes a little over my head I think.
I'm referring to the intervals with respect to the root of the chord you're playing over. Seventh would be the minor or major seventh etc. For example playing a B note over a C chordAre you referring to the notes in the scale you use over your chord? I have close to 0 understanding when it comes to theory so it is still a little confusing to me.
