 Lester - Mtp - December
 Dec 10 2009, 07:10 AM Post #23 Instructor Group: GMC Instructor Posts: 3.220 Joined: 2-August 07 From: Turin, Italy Member No.: 2.464 QUOTE (Lester @ Dec 10 2009, 12:10 AM) This is what I meant with my question:In the progression we have a Bm7/5-.it consists of the root, minor 3rd, diminished 5th and a minor 7th. the relative intervals are: root, minor 3rd, minor 3rd, major 3rd.what happens when the last interval is a minor 3rd? (I formulated it wrong, I asked about a minor 7th, but making that interval minor makes it a 6th rather, i guess...)And now that I think of it: why do we call the chord above a Bm7/5- and not just a Bdim7? Is Bdim7 a good notation as well?About the recording: I got my logitech quickcam today, I won't be able to record tommorow yet (lack of time) but friday you will hear me playing. I will record the lesson as well as a demo of my general playing. I'm at school all afternoon on friday, but I'll get to it when I get home, you use cubase as well, right? do you know how to sync my sound with the cam?Stacking minor thirds you get a diminished 7th chord. As I wrote in my previous post there are many notations to write this.C - Eb - Gb - Bbb are the notes of Cdim7, written also C°, C°7, Cdim. There is some confusion around, about the "dim" notation. Some books use "dim" for triads while some others are referring to the diminished 7th chord.Usually you have some legend somewhere in the book which make things clear.You find the diminished 7h chord as example over the 7th degree of the harmonic minor scale.To keep things simple take a look at A harmonic minor which is A - B - C - D - E - F - G# - A.Over the 7th degree you get G# - B - D - F which is G#°7.Each note can be another root if you spell the names in the right way. Starting from B you get B - D - F - Ab, which is B°7.I record the audio with Cubase and then I sync it with the video using Vegas or Movie Maker. If you take a look on the forum I'm sure you'll find many different solutions to do this. Members write their gear on each REC take. Looking forward to hear from you. -------------------- ::: Main Gear :::Guitars: Washburn N4 Vintage | Washburn N2 | Washburn WI67Pro | Washburn WG-587 | Washburn EA20BAmps: Laney GH50L (head) | Laney GS410 & GS212IE (cabinets) | Rocktron PROGAP Ultra (rack preamp) | Rocktron Velocity 150 (power amp) | Marshall VS230 (combo)FXs: Rocktron Intellifex + custom pedalboard (check my video demo)Other: Shredneck | Intellitouch PT10 tunerPicks: Esseti PicksSoftware & Recording Gear: Cubase 4 | Overloud TH1 | Mackie Onyx 400F | EZdrummer | Korg Pandora PX4D-------------------------------------------------------myspace.com/jerryarcidiaconoCheck out my video lessons and instructor board!

Sorry again!Lester

I hope I can make the deadline, I had a bicycle accident last monday and it's hard for me to play with a pick right now, because my hands are wounded But I think I'll be fine, I' just start with the theory.When Is the REC supposed to be done? at the end of the month I thought, right?I was thinking, maybe we could summarize things at the end of each month, so after each REC take, we take the topics we did in the weeks before and make an extra assignment for each topic. for example the ones mentioned at the end of vid 1 in your jazz notes 1 lesson. I think that would help me freshen things up, otherwise we'll just move on and on, nothing wrong with that, but I feel this way the handled topics will stick better. and it will help me in my componing skills.Let me know what you think.Hi Lester, wish you a quick recovery!Yes, the REC should be done at the end of the month.About the extra assignments, you can find some exercises at the end of video #1 of many JN lessons.If there aren't exercises in a particular lesson we are covering, I can suggest some specific exercise, of course. Since we're a bit late right now, it's very important to focus on playing and recording, in my opinion.At the end of the month I will write a post which summarize your progress. This is already a feature of the MTP program, don't worry. -------------------- ::: Main Gear :::Guitars: Washburn N4 Vintage | Washburn N2 | Washburn WI67Pro | Washburn WG-587 | Washburn EA20BAmps: Laney GH50L (head) | Laney GS410 & GS212IE (cabinets) | Rocktron PROGAP Ultra (rack preamp) | Rocktron Velocity 150 (power amp) | Marshall VS230 (combo)FXs: Rocktron Intellifex + custom pedalboard (check my video demo)Other: Shredneck | Intellitouch PT10 tunerPicks: Esseti PicksSoftware & Recording Gear: Cubase 4 | Overloud TH1 | Mackie Onyx 400F | EZdrummer | Korg Pandora PX4D-------------------------------------------------------myspace.com/jerryarcidiaconoCheck out my video lessons and instructor board!

Ican you also suggest lessons about modes? I'd like to learn more about them. I'd like to know them inside out,all the boxes, so I can improvise with them. I'll get working on those then as some side project, and post those whenever ready.
