Chords And Scales: That Goes With What? Part 2

This is the follow up lesson to the chords and scales in a major key.

Ultimate Guitar
Hey guys! This is the next installment of my chords and Scales lesson. Here we are going with the same type of principle applied in the last lesson, but we are moving on to minor chords and scales. You'll notice in this lesson some of the chords are in two categories. This means you can play two types of scales for those particular types of chords. Myself I prefer the minor chords and scales because they are more fun to create ideas with and more intellectual because you have to pay attention. So look through these and if you have any questions, feel free to ask. This time challenge yourself and see which Genre of music some of the chords and scales go best with. Does it sounds more Jazzy, Bluesy, Classical or maybe even a little Country? You be the judge.
