How many times have you been blown away by one of your favorite players' solos and then find yourself wondering why you don't have those 'notes' on your own fretboard? Well, of course we have those notes on our guitars -- we just need to learn how to play the right notes, at the right time. Sweet Notes to the rescue!
Robbie's developed his Sweet Notes approach over many years of study and application on the stage and in the studio. "The essence of the Sweet Notes approach is the chord/scale relationship and knowing which notes to target as resolution points when we are soloing. For example; playing a G major scale (G, A, B, C, D, E and F#) over a G chord is really solid advice but then why do the A, C, E and F# notes sound weak when we end a run on them? Because they are not as strong as the notes that make up the G chord itself (G - B -- D), which are the ideal resolution points for lines within an improvisation."
Robbie's definition of a 'sweet note' is a note that is found both in the scale being played, and also in the chord that the scale is being played over (AKA chord tones or arpeggios). Just learning how to identify and target those sweet notes as resolution points, will singularly take your improvisations from B&W to color. But there's so much more to dig in to.
The Sweet Notes approach can be applied to all genres of music and is designed to guide, inspire and push your capabilities as a guitarist regardless of your level and playing ability. Put your time in with the course and Sweet Notes will prepare you to improvise over any chord changes, and progression, and across any style of music.
