Dolphin Dance: Chord Tone Solo

Chord tone solo over the first two chords of  Dolphin Dance by Herbie Hancock.

In my morning practice soloing over chords with chord tones is an important component.

I use the software ALK 2 by Zenaud.io

On the first track, I record a few chords and the software loops it automatically.
The second track records 16 bars and plays them back once. Then it starts again with a two bar count in.
This gives me an immediate feedback by listening to what I’ve played and let me adjust it the next round.

The chords on this example are ||: Ebmaj7 | Bbm7 :|| The first two bars of  Dolphin Dance by Herbie Hancock.

The focus lies on the chord tones 3, 5 and the root and playing them on the whole neck. Later 7, 9, 11 and 13 are added to give it a bit more tension.
