Does anyone know anything about something called "octave displacement?" I'm trying to figure out how to do this and I would love to jump straight to "how." So any info out there? it's a cool and weird technique.

Hey how are you doing ?
I can try to help you smile.gif Its quite simple really

Octave displacement is term used to describe when you can't play original octave on your instrument and you have to play it up or down and octave!
Guitar players do these all the time, especially if you try to play melody thats played on piano really high or really low!

Another reason why this technique is commonly used and applied is because guitar players love to harmonize their lines and parts. Harmonizing using octave displacement technique (playing same melody up or down an octave over current melody ) sounds really good.

Hope that helps smile.gif

Basically you take a certain melodic line (e.g. an arpeggio) and move notes within this melodic line from one octave to another.

In other words: if you play a scale (e.g. A minor) you can either play all notes in one octave (left example below) or take some notes to one octave higher (right example below).
