Guitar Scales Trick Part 2

How to improvise with these scales

IONIAN

Chord type = Maj or Maj7

If you want to improvise a solo in a song during a major chord, use the first pattern (see: Guitar Scales Trick Part I,  F pattern).

Example:

If you want to improvise a solo in a song during a major chord like F or F7, use the notes of the first pattern (see: Guitar Scales Trick Part I), starting from F (first fret on the E bass chord). You can use not only the first pattern but all the 7 patterns, as they sound the same.

If you want to improvise a solo in a song during a major chord like C or C7, use the “all 7 pattern scheme”  but starting from C (8th fret on the E bass chord).

It’s easy to play the Ionian scale without thinking about the intervals  (T – T – s – T – T – T – s)

This is the first part of your improvisation for a song in the key of C major (continue with the full 7 scheme)
First modal Scale Ionian

The scale is similar to the F Ionian. The difference is, C scale starts from C, and F scale starts from F.
