I found a site that based on a series of chords, divided this suite into several groups,
and for each of these groups proposed one or more scales or modes
to improvise.

Unfortunately I have lost the link.

I'm looking for a site that does the same, thanks in advance for your help

u just said the basics, most harp players are only aware of what key the song is in.

Guitar players play "over the chord a lot"

If the key is G and the chord is G7 play G minor penatonic scale. If it switches to C7 play C
minor pentatonic scale, but u can still play G minor pentatonic scale etc

Its important to know what chords, so u dont hit sour notes; ie; major or minor chord.

If its in G but a Am chord is being played now,
u dont want to hit an ''maj 3rd of A' [C#], u dont want to hit a maj7 of A [G#].

bunch u tube stuff

Sorry, no. If your chord is G7 and a G major scale is played over it, it'll sound wrong because of the dissonance between an F and an F#. To play over a G7 you'll want to play a C mixolydian scale, also known as 2nd position on a C harp.

thanks henry I was wrong --I think cuz I use the minor pentonic so muc h I spaced

To form the chord, G7, you play the notes G, B, D and F.

Note clearly that you do not play F sharp, instead you play the note, F which is a semitone lower than F sharp.

My apologies

Fulgoni if if u find that sight---can u post it thanks
