A quick story, years ago when I was first learning improvisation, I was always confused and frustrated with those chord/scale charts. You know the ones that tell you which scale you should play with which chord. It seemed impossible to learn all those scales and so limiting. In this lesson, I’m going to show you a technique that I use in my improvisation everyday to quickly improvise over chords without “over thinking” the scale that I am playing. Using this technique, it is easy to improvise over chords even if you don’t know which scale to use!
