Colorful Arpeggios

Here over a Dm7 groove/vamp the idea is to superimpose arpeggios borrowed from the D melodic minor scale to add color/tension in our phrasing. So we still have the ‘strong’ notes or chord tones to underline the chord and we also add a few colorful notes like C# & E.

10 Useful Minor 7th Chord Voicings

Here’s a selection of 10 useful & beautiful minor 7th chord voicings. Some positions may be difficult because of large stretches, take you time!  You’ll recognize some substitutions, like the CMaj7 voicing for instance.

As always I recommend you to transpose in other keys – except the first voicing, because of the open strings !

Eric Johnson Lick

 

In this lick Eric Johnson makes an extensive use of the EMaj6 arpeggio – The lick is in the key of E major or C# minor which is the relative minor –

In the second bar we can also notice a two octave EMaj6 followed by  EMaj6/9 arpeggio.

Eric plays the C# note/ 9th fret on the low E string in the 3rd bar with the thumb  : easier & faster !

For the gearheads : I use the Hermida Zendrive pedal into a Victory V40 amp plus a bit of delay & reverb !

Hope you enjoy & have fun,
