A Minor

In order to shred across the neck you can use many scales, arpeggios and even chords. Did you know that you can use chords in your soloing?

Not only can use chords to solo but you want to know what chords you can use to solo over…with all the scales and  arpeggios that you know.

Chords in the Key of A minor – Same as C Major (The Relative Major Key)
