Hello my dear beginner fellows!
I so much loved Muris' One String Work out that I thought it would be useful
to do the same exercise but this time in E Aeolian.
So I did the BT in Aeolian respecting his degrees,
so the chords are Emin, Cmaj, Amin, F#dim and E min again. (Hope I'm right smile.gif )
Just repeat the patterns of the original lesson but using the E minor scale.
I hope you'll find it useful as I do
and hope you like it!

As always, thank you Muris and hope you like it too!
Cheers, Eddie

Degrees/chords are fine Eddie tho they don't have same roll as in Major version
but you did great job with backing!! smile.gif

You listened my advice to try it this way,
now I'm looking forward to some playing over it! wink.gif

Thank you Muris!
I knew I did something wrong,
but the exercise sounds good nevertheless on the BT.
Remember I'm doing just the 16th note part! smile.gif
For the 16th triplets I'm anxiously waiting for your timing lesson
since I really have problems feeling them...

I love doing BTs, and I'm learning a lot about chords
using a keyboard since it's much easier to "see" intervals.

Anyway, I really hope some people might find this BT useful for something laugh.gif

Cheers, Eddie

It's fine backing Eddie and you didn't miss at all,
it just that these chords in minor have different purpose,that's all,
but degrees are ok so don't worry. smile.gif

This thing about purpose is VERY interesting! Really!
If you did the same exercise what chords would you have used?
What do you mean with purpose?

Thank you.

Your fan Eddie
Muris Varajic
Glad I have some fans here Eddie biggrin.gif

Well..purpose...it's actually how chord sounds in specific progression.
In E Major we have F# minor as a II and in E minor it's F# dim,difference is obvious.
Also interesting spot is VI degree which is relative minor if we are in Major,
per example C# minor in E Major while it's C Major in E minor key.
Each chord in use has its own purpose,it colors our key/tonality,that's the deal. smile.gif

This is just great!!! So interesting.
What chords would you have used
as a transcription of your Ionian lesson?

Thank you

Did you miss the previous one?

Can I play anything on my BT or do you prefer the lesson?

You can stick with your chords cause you just
can't find same solutions for Major and Minor keys. smile.gif

Ok, I'll do the first half just like your lesson, in 16th notes,
second half I'll try to do something of my own.
Thank you, and have a great time.

Hello Muris...
I did a little recording over my aeolian BT.
I know there are lots of timing problems, (that's why I asked for the timing lesson! smile.gif )
but in the second part there are a few bends I really liked!
And I also tried some tapping!!!
So here's my little recording over my BT inspired by your one string lesson.
Hope you like it.

Cheers and thank you always.
Eddie

Thank you Muris.
Just let me tell you that your one string lesson
has helped me so much to get out of boxes! (I mean to go for 3 nps by myself!)

Thanks!
I love doing BTs and using a master keyboard
has helped me a lot with basic harmony concepts.
Learning how to do them is quite easy at this level.
The important thing is to have original software!
You get an owner's manual and you can go to your music shop
and ask whatever you like,(I did that for audio and MIDI setups)
which makes basic operations very easy and fast to learn.
Same thing with VSTs of which I have very few.
Cheers
