Amaj to Dmaj7 Improvisation for Guitar

Here’s Part 3 of How to Improvise on guitar. The TAB and Guitar Music Notation above  relates to soloing over two simple chords an A Major 7 to a D Major 7 chord.  

  • These chords are common and they fall into the key of A.  
  • The key of A has 3 sharp notes (one note higher) .  
  • The sharp notes are F# G# and C #. 
  • The A major 7 chord consists of A C# E and G#
  • The D major 7 chord consists of D F# A and C#

The simple improvisation which I have done is totally within the key of A, it has a certain jazziness about it but I I’ll tell you what, if you nail this stuff and have it in your musical toolbox,  it could open your playing up a little instead of just playing Pentatonic (5 note) scales or Blues scales.  If you want a blues scale to play over this , use F# Blues, it’ll sit beautifully over it.
