Scale improv.

Scale improv.

Postby Banjomike0319 » Tue May 29, 2007 2:10 pm

So I have been playing this song just using my E blues scale and also my E major scale. Does anyone have some other suggestions on what I could use to improv on this song.

This is such a great song, my other guitar player and I have been playing this at open mic nights around the area along with Deep Elm and also Candyman and there all hits.

I just wanna clean up on some stuff witht this song.

Not perfectly on-topic but I just had an observation yesterday, while listening to LoM doing "Neighbor, Neighbor", that throughout the song, Jerry played the exact same riff he used for NSB.

I play my leads in a G major/E blues scale. Many a similar run and fill as found in truckin and spoonfull.
Heres a typical run into the E chord

E|-------3--5b5b5p3--3---3-------------------------------
B|--3s5-------------5--5--5p4p3--------------------------
G|-------------------------------4--2p0---0-----------1--
D|--------------------------------------2---2--0h1h2--2--
A|----------------------------------------------------2--
E|------------------------------------------------------

Also when you play the G D A part, Garcia would finish by sliding the A chord up from the 2nd fret to the 14th fret and alternate the the E and A note on the the 14th fret and then slide the notes all the way back down and play the D D# E run on the D string into his E chord.

Heres another one, try to play the melody to
"spend a little time on the mountain spend a little time on the hill" with your lead
E|--------------------------------------------------
B|--3s5--3-----3--5b6-5b6--3s5--3----3--------------
G|----------4----------------------4----4s2p0-----0-
D|-------------------------------------------2-----
A|--------------------------------------------------
E|--------------------------------------------------

You can also play that 12 frets up the neck
OK one more along the same lines
E|---------12---------12---------12-----------------------------
B|--15b16------15b16------15b16------15--12------12-------------
G|-------------------------------------------14-----14--12---------
D|---------------------------------------------------------14-----
A|--------------------------------------------------------------
E|--------------------------------------------------------------

I know this is such a classic dead tune.

I mean its such a great song to go from an acoustic set to an electic, or just playing it all acoustic.

Come on people you can do it. Post more information about this.
