 Porsgrunn (NO) w/Arcadia - Jan 29, 2011 by Dimitry
 
"Evolution" (Sep 15, 2008) is my first album. The recording sessions lasted from March to August 2008 and I worked on this record during the breaks from touring with my band "Arcadia".

My 2nd solo album is called "Codex Magika" and was produced on Sep 18, 2012.

"The Codex Videos" was released on Sep 18, 2013. Click here to watch some clips!

"The Art of Complications" is out since Jan 10, 2016.

My latest album, "The Silent Watcher", was released on Nov 4, 2018.

Second really important cadence, classic example that everybody know:
 
C maj7 / A min7/ D min7 / G7
 
We heard and played that several and several times.
Even if it looks and sounds really simple and easy to play melodies on a such chords sequence, I think it’s really important to follow some rules as for example to play Triads and arpeggios in the right way..
Some arpeggios positions on the guitar:
 
C maj 7
 
---------------------------------------------------
---------------------------------------------------
----------------------4------5--------------------
-----------------5---------------------------------
-----3------7--------------------------------------
----------------------------------------------------
 
 
D min 7
 
----------------5------8--------------------------
----------6----------------------------------------
----7----------------------------------------------
----------------------------------------------------
----------------------------------------------------
----------------------------------------------------
 
 
A min7
 
----------------------------------------------------
----------------------------------------------------
----------------------------------------------------
---------------------5----7------------------------
----------------7----------------------------------
----5-----8----------------------------------------
 
 
G7
 
------------------------------------------------------
-------------------6------8--------------------------
---------4----7--------------------------------------
----5------------------------------------------------
------------------------------------------------------
------------------------------------------------------
Exercise n.1
 
Play every arpeggios on his own chord on a loop.
 
Exercise n.2
 
Put together all the arpeggios on the chord sequence.
Example: C maj7 (2 bars), A min7 (2 bars), D min7 (2 bars), G7 (2 bars)
All in a loop.
 
Exercise n.3
 
Here you are ready to start the “real” improvisation...
Use: Arpeggios, scales (C major or modes), chromatic scales (as connection between an arpeggios and the following one).
 
Exercise n.4
 
Make experiments.
Play the arpeggios using tapping, sweeping, string skipping, tremolo bar etc...
Build and use your own style and have always fun..
 
If you need some other suggestions, I’ll be happy to help you out with that..
Write to me here:
 
 
Have fun and take care.
 
Dimitry
