Miniseries #001, Beginner Backup VI
In this video you can hear how using the same second string position D chord pattern/lick can be used against the second string position C chord. Also, after you become familiar with different patterns, you can mix the patterns up within the same chord. You can hear in this video where I used one pattern over the first part of the lick, and another pattern over the second half of the lick. In time, you will be playing these things automatically, you won't even be thinking about it, you will just be improvising with these patterns at will.
I would also like to say, that when you are in a Jam Session, and may be you mess up a little with some pattern you are trying to use, just try to keep the right hand in motion, and come back to the pattern or a simple roll. Try to keep the timing going, even if you mess up. Sometimes your perception of a "mistake", will lead you into new territory of the right hand. It will force you to play something that you didnt have planned, but in the end, will help you develope your right hand into doing things that perhaps you thought you couldn't do.
Keep it going everyone,
and good luck with your jam sessions!
