    As a Country player who also plays Jazz , We think of the chord tones or the arpeggio’s tone.
    As fast as music happens there really is no time to do anything else.
    The other info is very correct.
    Indeed chromatic notes are great.
    A cool rule is never play more than 5 chromatic notes, that is to much spice.

    Great Lesson The Books are good stuff as well.
    Thanks for sharing

    I cannot wait for each of these podcasts.

    Great explanation of the harmonic minor scale, and how it is used for solos, riffs or bass lines with a major or 7th chord at the dominant, instead of the minor.

    Desi’s lesson make me realize that I need to read chapter 3 which I skipped over. It was a good lesson. Desi knows his stuff and has a relaxed, informed presentation when he delievers his lessons. Desi is, without exception one of the best, if not the best, theory, as it pertains to your guitar instructors, that at this point, I have found on the web.
