Week 61. Dorian stuff

Hey guitar chefs!

This week – Dorian mode. I’ve been improvising almost daily, listening back to what I’ve recorded and choosing the best takes for todays video.

After the 2nd day there was a livestream and then the Rendez’s comment with suggestions to focus more on the arpeggios instead of the whole scale shape. I’m not sure if I’ve implemented these suggestions correctly, but since Day 3 I tried to construct my improvs around the notes that are in the chord I’ve been playing over.

It changed the game partially, but I started to overthink a lot, so the closer to the end of the week I got, the less of the “successful” takes I managed to find in my improvisation sessions. I’ll stick to this approach though. Maybe I just need more practice and getting more comfortable with the notes I should stick to.

As for daily riffs, I’m not sure if I’m going to do them in 2022. I want to learn and record some harder songs, and it’s gonna be impossible to learn and record things like this in one day. So maybe I’ll record one full song per week or even per month instead of playing those short parts on a daily basis. We’ll see…

Anyway, Merry Christmas to everyone who celebrates it on December 25th. Have a nice one! I’ll see you in a week.
