realaudio chord progressions
the melodic minor scale
the best way to learn soloing is to practice it. my realaudio pages will help you do this. this page contains a minor-scale chord progression repeated many times and recorded as a realaudio file (28.8 kbps). if you don't have a realaudio player, click here to download one free. i hope you find this page useful! please e-mail me with comments about this or any of my pages!

melodic minor scale realaudio stream 2
key of b minor


this file contains the chords to the end solo of hotel california. you can either play your own solo or the hc one found on my hc pages. you can choose between the electric or acoustic version. have fun with this!
the file contains the following chord progression (repeated 3 times):

bm	f#	a	e 
g	d	em	f#

to save this file for later use, right-click on the link above and choose "save link as..."
notice that this progression contains both an e and an em. this results from the differing scales played when ascending and descending. you are going to have to adjust for this when you are making up a solo.
to get the most out of playing these progressions, save the files and then play them over and over, trying different modes and patterns over them. you will begin to understand what sounds good over what chords and what notes to hit when. but it won't come overnight; you need to practice!!! enjoy this, use it, and keep playin' !
