Soloing with Triad Substitution Pairs over A V I Progression

Soloing with Triad Substitution Pairs over The V I Progression

This is a continuation from last week’s blogs:

G and Am Triad Substitutions over a C Groove
Triad Substitution Pairs over The V7 Chord

It is essential that you study these 2 blogs first before moving on. This will help you understand the material in this blog.

This is where the fun really starts.
Soloing over a 1-chord groove is fun, but applying all the substitution ideas over chord progressions, is where your soloing really gets a boost.

One of the most common chord progressions is I V (I)
In the key of C, that is C G C

In the below video you can hear me use the triad substitution ideas from the past 2 blogs, over a C | C | G | G | backing track.
Check this video to get a taste of how cool this sounds.


Hit me up anytime at if you have any questions, or if you would like to book a lesson.

These free lessons are cool, but you will never experience the progress, joy, and results that my students experience in lessons when you’re learning by yourself from blogs and videos.

That is why people take lessons: way better results and progress, much more complete information, exposed to way more creative ideas than you can get from a blog or YouTube video.
There is only so much that self-study can accomplish.

If you want to see amazing results and progress in your guitar playing, buy your first lesson here and get started ASAP.

  • 1 Lesson = 75

You’ll impress your friends and loved ones in no time with your guitar playing!
