A Minor Chord Tones

Sometimes guitar players focus only on the shape of the scale they are soloing in.  If you want to really grow in the way you approach guitar solos try focusing on the chord tones when you are soloing over a chord.  In this case we are looking at an Amin7 chord so the chord tones are A, C, E and G.  Try playing over a backing track and see what it sounds like if you intentionally land on these chord tones putting the emphasis on the 1st(A), 3rd(C) and the 7th(G) tones.  You can play the 5th(E), but generally speaking the emphasis should be on the 1st,3rd, and 7th tones.
