    Kind of confused how you can use chord shapes here; are you mostly highlighting the notes of the chord while playing the scale minimumly? Thanks!

      Yes Angelo mostly focusing mentally on where my fingers would normally be when holding down the chord shape, then ensuring I hit those tones as I play lines to have a solid chord tone basis in the lines.

    Great approach to soloing, visualising the chord also keeps your ‘mind on the job’ instead of just drifting off and occasionally getting lost in things. Good stuff !!

      Thanks Adam, yes getting those guide rails in place i.e. knowing where the chord tones are is very important – it’s hard to be creative when you are always losing your place on the fretboard, this technique really helps with this.
