Kris,

Is there a simple explaination of how to play harmony leads? For example, if I were playing a pentatonic minor scale starting at a root note and wanted to play thirds, would I just count three steps up from that root note and start my harmony lead there? Would I simply duplicate that pentatonic lead by playing each note three steps up?

thanks
Jeff

Jeff,

Definately! What you said is 100 % true.

Keyboard players have a hard time playing harmonies - while guitarists only have to move the scale shape up/down on the neck, couldn't be easier! biggrin.gif

For a whacky sound, try minor seconds (one step up) or flat fifths (6 step up).

For a strong, nice sound, try fourths (five steps up) or fifths (seven steps up).

cheers

K
