You need to have a certain level of mastery of all the above, for the following lesson to make sense.

I’m beyond super excited about what we’ll be covering today.
We’ll be combining chords of the A major and A minor scales over the A pedal.

The chords in A major are: A Bm C#m D E F#m G#dim
The chords in A minor are: Am Bdim C Dm Em F G

The above links will help you get started with all of this.

When you have those basics down, check out following fun pedal point progressions:

  1. A/A D/A E/A Dm/A Em/A Am/A

  2. Am/A E/A Dm/A Bm/A Bdim/A
