How to create melodies with chords - 2
Developing your Creativity and Wellbeing through Self Expression
This is my guitar improvisation tip for today on creating melodies on the go in, other words improvising on the guitar.
Improvise with the Eb pentatonic sound
The next time you improvise over a 11- V repeating chord progression, for example an Fm7 and Bb7, instead of playing the Dorian scale over the Fm7 and the Mixolydian scale over the Bb7, create a floating sound by playing the Eb69 chord over both chords.
Create contrast by talking with the F blues scale over both chords.
Improvise by eliminating chords
Create more tension playing only Bb7 over both chords.
And more ideas coming up.
First here comes the groove where I define the chords with nice melodic lines in the lead and with a groovy bass line.
Next the solo.

Your Improvisation Tool Kit
Please explore these options and add them to your toolkit. The more tools you master the more expressive and creative you will be. As a consequence you can have much more fun and never run out of ideas in your playing or better yet, you will be able to reflect with more precision the feel you wish to reproduce.
For example: when we play, we all have the need to reach a climax in our solos or melodies. If we do not know how to be powerful and musical, we end up playing a lot of notes and at a loud volume.
These tools I share with you, will allow you to control your expression and deliver more power through creativity.
