Funk-Rock jam track: The Dog and The Chooks is a syncopated funky rock jam track in the key of Ab.

Backing track instruments: electric guitar, fretless bass and drums.

Progression: Ab Major, Db Major, Ab Major, F5, D5, Eb5, A Major.

Suggestions: It's time to get out in the yard with The Dog and The Chooks. This is a good jam track to use the Ab Major Pentatonic scale. Try and come up with some really melodic licks using only the notes from the pentatonic scale. The vi chord (which is the F5 chord) helps give the Major Pentatonic scale a nice twist.

If you want to add a bit more to the Ab Major Pentatonic scale throw in the note G which is the Major 7th from the Ab Major Scale. The G sounds really good when played over the Ab Major chord along with the Root note A. Plus you can use the open G string or play the G an Octave higher at the 12th fret on the G string.

Chord Progression

I'm playing the Ab Major chord with my thumb over the neck. That's why I put an 'x' on the 1st (high E) string. There is half a beat between the Ab and Db chords which gives you plenty of time to make the changes if you know your two barre chord shapes with their Root note on the 6th (low E) and 5th (A) strings.

The F5, D5 and Eb5 chords all use the exact same chord shape so it's just a matter or getting your hand in position for the F5 chord and then sliding it down to the D5 then up to the Eb5 chord.

Make sure that you play with the drums.
