JamTrack Em-D-C

A JamTrack in E-Minor made for practicing improvisation.

You may recognize this chord progression. It’s used in many famous songs, e.g. “Nothing Else Matters” by Metallica. Like the Metallica song this JamTrack is in 6/8 and the whole chord progression is 3x ||: Em | D C :|| G B7 | Em | Em |

Use the E-Minor pentatonic or blues scale. The difference between the pentatonic scale and the blues scale is the added #4 or b5 in the blues scale. In the video you see scale diagrams in which these notes are stars 🙂

JamTrack G-Major

A JamTrack in G-Major made for practicing improvisation.

Use the G-Major scale, G-Major pentatonic or E-Minor pentatonic or blues scale. The difference between the pentatonic scale and the blues scale is the added #4 or b5 in the blues scale. In the video you see scale diagrams in which these notes are stars 🙂

And always remember: G-Major and E-Minor have the same notes! Therefore I didn’t show the G-Major pentatonic
