Improvisation: Am7 FMaj9 Progression with MP3

This is a slow and moody groove that is wonderful to solo over. Start of by working with the A Minor Pentatonic scale over this progression. Try to play it in the 3 positions mentioned in the A Minor Pentatonic lesson. Then work in these scales:

(Over the Am7)
A (Jazz) Melodic Minor .. Same pattern as the G (Jazz) Melodic Minor scale shown in lesson but played 2 frets higher.

(Over the Am7)
A (Dorian) Minor .. Same pattern as the G (Dorian) Minor scale shown in lesson but played 2 frets higher.

(Over both chords)
C Major .. Same patterns as the G Major scale shown in lesson but starting on the 8th fret.

Also, work in the harmonized G Major scale ( see that lesson ) over the Am7 chord and the same pattern moved up to the 7th fret becomes the C Major scale harmonized works great over the FMaj9 chord.


Click the progression to download the sound file you can solo over. It is 2.54MB. You wont be disappointed.
