Lesson #114, Cumberland Gap II
These next videos will take apart Cumberland Gap and start to explore other portions of the neck. From the studies of the modes of the pentatonic scale we can apply it directly to this song to the extent of the entire fretboard.
You can take any of the licks that you learn in this song and use them over the G major or the Relative minor, that being E minor. This song is in the key of G, and if you look to the tab, there are only a few measures where there is a chord change to D. So there are a lot of licks within this song that will work over the major or relative minor.
This is also a great song to work on your rolls, and the timing of your rolls. Always strive for perfect timing, it is one the most important aspects of playing music.
