Soloing with Triad Substitution Pairs over The 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 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 [email protected] if you have any questions, or if you would like to book a lesson.
I can also email you a C | C | G | G | backing track if you shoot me an email.

These free lessons are cool, but you will never experience the progress and results learning from blogs and videos, that my students experience in lessons.
There’s also much more cool stuff you can do with substitution pairs, and way more possibilities than can be covered in a video or blog.

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

If you like this blog: give it a rating and feel free to give me any feedback.
I believe everything can always improve. I’d gladly implement your suggestions and ideas.

Be on the look out for more blogs about guitar, music, songwriting and music education.
Have fun! 🙂
