    Yes. Absolutely. Way over my head!!! I love what you do over the A7. It sounds so cool. I can play that. But I can’t even understand why it sounds good. Ha. Way way way over my head no matter what angle-chords, scales, ear, notes. I’m working on getting the basic melody with a few of the runs in the lessons.  That’s keeping me plenty busy.

    It’s not as far over your head as you think! When you play scales, try to stay on the triad notes (1,3,5) when you are play the first and third beats of each measure. This will help you to anchor the scale.

    For example, if you are playing quarter notes, the scale might look like this:

    |  1 2 3 2  |  3 4 5 4  | 3  2  1  2  |  1 .  .  .  |

    Notice the bold triad notes on the first and third beats of each measure.
