In this lesson we’re going to look at the application of the major scale by learning the Knockin’ on Heaven’s Door guitar solo by Slash of Guns N’ Roses.
In previous lessons we’ve learned about the CAGED system for learning guitar chords and scales. Another system that is useful for learning scales is the 3 notes per string system.
Playing chord progressions by position is a great way to familiarize yourself with the different chord voicings found all over the neck. It helps open up the fretboard and reduces dependency on only playing open chords and basic barre chord shapes.
In this lesson we take a look at the minor arpeggio. We’ll learn what makes up a minor arpeggio, how it differs from the major arpeggio, and its various shapes found on the fretboard.
In part one of guitar triads we looked at major triads and how you can learn these triads based on the CAGED guitar system. In this lesson we’ll take a look at minor triads. If you need a review of triads and how they’re formed, check out part one again. Otherwise, let’s get started!
