I played guitar for a while 10 years ago, but I never learned music. I was only playing the songs that I wanted to play by following YouTube videos.
I know I have to learn music to be able to improvise on blues and jazz tracks. That's why I need learn a lot of things. But I don't wanna get lost so I need an advice to build my own learning path.
What I've done so far: I understand logic behind the CAGED, Circle of Fifths and intervals. I can play C Major scale, C Maj and C Maj7 arpeggios and C chords all over the keyboard.
So what is next? Should I do these for other notes? (A G E D F B)
Also I can play a few minor pentatonic scales. But I don't know how to use them.
When I play I IV V (let's say A7 D7 E7), I can play these minor pentatonics but when I try to improvise solo over these chord changes, it doesn't sounds like blues. Because I don't know how to connect them. Or maybe I shouldn't try improvisations for a while and just focus the scales.
I don't wanna give up this time. So any advice would be helpful and keeps my motivation up.
Thanks in advance.
