In this lesson we tackle the “G shape” of the CAGED system; its correlating major chord, arpeggio, pentatonic & major scales.
Papa Gates uses the term "Ornamentation" to describe "Embellishing" or spicing up the chords, double stops, and even soloing. Adding flare and excitement to your playing is essential in developing a style. It's a way to make your playing unique to you and it's almost as important as the notes or melodies you choose to construct your solos and chords with.
Would anyone like to upload a video of themselves playing using ornamentation or embellishment in the "Discussion Thread"? Try to be as original as possible or at least credit the artist if you're demonstrating a lick or riff of someone else's so we can explore that artist ourselves. We'd all love to see what you come up with!
