Guitar Chords: I Have A Song Using C F G Chords And Wanted To Know What Notes I Would Play Over For Lead?

I am just getting into playing guitar and I was wondering what notes I could play over each chord. each chord played for 4 beats

C C Fmaj7 Fmaj7
C C Fmaj7 Fmaj7
Fmaj7 Fmaj7 G G7

I’m struggling with this one.


  1. Soulmate says:

    use any of the following:
    C major scale
    C pentatonic (C D E G A)
    A minor scale (same as C major scale but starting on A)
    A minor pentatonic aka A minor “rock box” (A C D E G)
    A blues scale
    Over the G chord only you can use a G blues scale G Bb C Db D F
