In episode #16 of Spicy Licks I taught you a couple of licks inspired by the playing style of Guthrie Govan.
Both licks were based out of the dorian mode and featured some 'chromatic passing notes'.
That might sound complicated but all a chromatic passing note is, is a note from outside a scale formula that you can throw into your licks for some additional spice!
Generally speaking these are not notes that you would want to end phrases on, or lean on for two long. They're best used to briefly add tension in solos. This is an improvisational tool that fusion players use all the time and if you've ever heard about 'outside playing', chromatic passing notes are a great way of adding those outside sounds to your improv.
To supplement the material covered in the free YouTube lesson - I've filmed three bonus lick lessons that use the dorian mode with chromatic passing notes. I've also had the intro solo transcribed in full so that you can study it with TAB and notation.
