We need more of this.
It's great to have different scales posted, and Kenny goes deep on that subject. But I think it would be great if players would post how they apply different scales to each song.
I'd even like to add a line to each page in the archve to say.....
For solos, try..........
Anyone want to tackle that task?
Why dont we use this to compile the scales we all use for various solos, and Ed can add the information to the song files as needed.
I'm not much of a lead guitar player, but I'll kick it off with a couple of ideas
Playin' - 70's version D Dorian (D minor)
later versions D mixolydian
Scarlet - dont use a single scale, play the chord changes
Fire - B mixolydian
Dark Star - A mixolydian for the main theme
Truckin' = E blues
Not Fade Away - either E blues or E major pentatonic +/- bluesy grace notes
Iko Iko - alternate D major (pentatonic) with A major (pentatonic) with the chord changes
