Lead Advice Wanted

I need some advice on what structures (modes, etc...) that I can play over a progression with the following chords.

E - C / G - B

Bear in mind that these are all major chords.

B(j)orn again

Hi Bjorn,

E major chord is built from tones E, G#, B
C/G chord is built from C, E, G with an G like bassnote
B major chord is built from B, D, F#

So lets sum it - C, D, E, F#, G/G#,(A), B

through over these chords I'd play A melodic minor(with and G#):

A, B, C, D, E, F#, G# (in melodic minor, 6th and 7th are sharped)

or G major:

G, A , B, C, D, E, F#


Maybe the G major would be better, because the G over E major would sound bluesy but not disharmonic.

But I am not real expert in this way, so try it and you'll see :-)

All the best

Joe

Ok ok ok...but when I think about it, that doesn't matter. Just play G major and you'll se that its ok. That D over B major sounds good. Bluesy :))

It sounds that way because of what we normally call a flat 7 in a key where that does not occur. In the key of B the vii scale degree, A, is A# in that key. Use of the A natural would be the flat 7. The note A is part of the structure of the D major chord, so it works.

Well, let's take it little bit slower please. I am confused.

I understand, that B major scale includes five sharps(F#,C#,G#,D#,A#), and A# is major 7th of this scale. I also understand, that A is flat 7. But where did you get that D major chord??

E - C / G - B...

I suggest change the E to Em and B to Bm and play diatonic modes and pentatonics in the key of Em or Am.
