Maybe you are missing something . . . . . I would urge you to improvise/practice intervallically and not using a chord scale relationship to start with. This will give you a stronger and harmonically clearer foundation for playing the changes. Think of the chords all the way up to their 13th (Thats 7 notes). As a starting exercise pick a tune, and play through the changes using the respective arpeggios up to the 7th degree. Not only will you hear the changes, you should also be able to hear the melody against the chords. Build on this.Hi guys... me (the guy from brazil) with another stupid and dummy again...LOL
I started to study theory... from the basics... I got a copy of The Jazz Theory Workbook(a very good book for beginners BTW) and something is not making any sense for me.
I will try to explain maybe you can help me to understand that...
Lets assume a basic progression Cmaj7 G7 the book says that on maj7 chords i can play the Ionian mode (so that will be C D E F G A B C) and on dominant chords I can use mixolidian mode (that will be G A B C D E F G)
I think this is a little bit funny because it is the same notes... so whats the difference? (besides the starting point) looking for that I just dont know why I cant just think in using the C major scale for the two chords? am I missing something?
Thx in advance
