I was on the internet and a guitar “tickler” came up to get me interested in a fellow selling a course. In it he suggested an idea that sounded great but i can figure out how it works so well. I can’t find the site anymore. Let me see if I can explain without pictures. He held a C maj7 on the 8th fret (i.e 1st finger 8th fret 6th string:, x 5th: 2nd finger, 8 fret fret, 2nd string: 3rd finger 9th fret, 4th string: pinky, 8th fret, 3rd string: x 1st string). It’s a common 4 string chord configuration. Then he said to play the E minor pentatonic over it. For ease of fingering I used 4 position, as he suggested. It sounded perfect. He also suggested to playing any three notes from that pentatonic as a mini chord while soloing, in addition to arpeggios of the chord. WHY does ‘Em pentatonic work over a Cmaj 7.
