What to play?

Recommended Posts

Well, let's say I know my chord tones, but, what to play from them? I play 1-b3-5-b7 of let's say for minor 7th. Sounds generic. I play with them, but I always end up bluesy or something :dunno: . I'd like some suggestions on what chord tones to combine. I know I should explore it by myself, but if there are some suggestions...

Not sure if this thread makes sense, but ok.

2,6,9,11,.13s for jazz. Bend a 2 up to a 3 or the other way around for a country twang. Natural 7s for ambient stuff and jazz. Double stops for anything.

I just grabbed the guitar some time before, and found a nice melody via Dm7th add9th only. (not sure if I named it correctly). Guess it depends on my mood.

Try learning some different llicks from other genres to give you some other ideas. Also try varying your phrasing, and displace some of the tones. By that I mean jump an octave or play up in intervals of a 5th or 7th or whatever. You can also add some chromatics in too - which is one of my favourite things to do.
