Django's Minor Swing in Am - Chords, Scales, and Arpeggios

Last week, I covered the different versions of Minor Swing - Django's in A minor, and David Grisman's in D minor. I briefly went through the chords, but I wanted to make y'all a video to go a little deeper into how you can start to solo over these minor chord progressions. In this video you'll learn about the different pieces involved in learning to improvise over "jazzier" chord progressions, such as Django's version of Minor Swing. 

This stuff has also been incredibly useful in soloing over bluegrass songs. For example, the B section of Blackberry Blossom has a minor tonality, and this theoretical stuff is super fun to implement in your solos!
