OUTLINE CHORD PROGRESSIONS WITH CHORD TONE SOLOING

In this course you are going to learn how to use CAGED arpeggio patterns to target chord tones while using pentatonic lead patterns. Specifically, you will target the root, third and fifth of each chord as you work through a progression. Targeting chord tones in your lead lines, which is sometimes called chord tone soloing, helps you to connect scales more closely to their related chords, as well as outline a particular chord progression. You will intentionally be emphasizing each note of the chord, creating a lead line that relates to the music. This approach is sometimes better than just randomly playing scales through a set of changes. You can apply this outlining technique to improvising, as well as to composing guitar solos, riffs, melodies and bass lines.

You target chord tones by mapping arpeggio patterns over a particular scale pattern. I present CAGED arpeggio patterns in Fretboard Theory 1 Course 3.

Unlike the book, this course focuses strictly on the lead pattern one but does get into some of the details of using the lead pattern two in the final lesson.
