I would really appreciate an answer to this chord progression

the chords are all bar chords,
G-root 5th string/D-root 5th string/Am-root 6th sting/G-root 6th string

I am confused because I figured the key to be in G, but when playing G Ionian over top of this chord progression it sounds a little off!?!

is this correct?

Major-G
Minor-Am
Minor-Bm
Major-C
Major-D
Minor-Em
Diminished=F#

so G Ionian is a good pick???? Do i jsut suck with Ionian??

When playing chords in G Ionian, playing G Ionian should sound good. Maybe your doing something wrong.

yeah good pick... but alot of people that are inexperienced, find it hard to solo with major keys, because they don't really understand the sound and havent developed an ear for it. and more so because they are use to the sound of minor soloing.

Just stick to G minor pentatonic, and it will sound good.

thanks

when you say "the sound" do you mean like timing and resolving on the g note. I try but still can't get the sound I want. and yeah of course i am most experienced with minor pentatonic, but i'm trying to learn the modes

Resolving on the root or any chord note is always a good step...

anyway, i'll record the progression and do a little solo in the G for you and post it somewhere...

Can you tell me how many bars each chord goes for? if not i'll just do my own rythym

but for now i must leave..

i'll do it tommorow for you

each chord is one bar, it's kind of a musical break for the rest of the song i am writting

G=X 10 12 12 12 x
D=X 5 7 7 7 X
Am=5 7 7 5 5 5
G= 3 5 5 4 3 3

G minor Pent: G Bb C D F

The F won't work because of the D major chord. So if you were wanting to stick to the Minor Pent shape you would have to go E minor, the 6th mode of the G major scale.

The notes we want are: G A B D E.

But if we want to keep it in the minor pent pattern then play the Minor pent on the 12th fret. Starting on the E because it contains the same notes as the G major pentatonic.
