Notes from July 22nd
Hi guys! Last Sunday I started getting into melodic minor
If you are counting from the minor scale it will have #6 and #7
If you are going from Major it will have b3
Both ways are correct and its totally up to you to decide which one you like better!
I was showing examples based on E melodic minor


If we would harmonize E melodic minor scale we will get:
Emi/Maj7 -F#mi7 - Gmaj7#5 - A7 - B7 - C#half diminished - D#half diminished

Emi/maj7


F#Mi7


Gmaj7#5


A7


B7


C#half diminished


D# half diminished


Let me know if you have any questions or need help with anything! smile.gif

July 25th Video chat notes

Last Wednesday I was showing you mechanical exercises that will help you develop alternative picking!
The whole idea of those exercises is to make your brain think differently! I took very simple pattern and by changing picking technique made it very challenging!
Here is the tab!
E |----------------------------------------------------|
B |----------------------------------------------------|
G |-----------------------------------------------4----|
D |-----------------------------4-----5--4--7--5-------|

-----------4--5--7-----------4--5--7-----------4----|----||
--4--5--7-----------4--5--7-----------4--5--7-------|----||
----------------------------------------------------|----||
----------------------------------------------------|----||


Now the picking techniques I have been using for each exercise!
Practice it everyday for 15 minutes and you will see the difference in a week! smile.gif
Picking:
1)Up - Down (alternative picking)
2)Down - Down (all strokes down)
3) Up -Up (All strokes up)
4) Up - Up - Down - Down (Up strokes first down strokes for every other string)
5) Up - Up - Down - Down - Up - Down (First string up, second string down, third string up - down etc.)

This exercises is the easiest and one of the fastest way to develop alternative picking and hands coordination!

Notes from Sunday August 5th

As you remember you can create your own licks by creating a five or seven note sequence you can use any notes you want
and applying it over 4/4 signature!
5/4
Lick 1

------7-----------------7----------10--------7-----------9---
-----------8---10------------8---------------------8---------
--7-9---9----7----7--9----9-----7------7--9----9------7-----
-------------------------------------------------------------
-------------------------------------------------------------
-------------------------------------------------------------

Lick 2

-------------------------------------------------------------
-------------------------------------------------------------
--------7------------9-----------7-----------11--------------
---------------9------------------------9--------------------
--7--10----10-----7------7--10-----10-----7-----------------
-------------------------------------------------------------

Lick 3

---8---5--------------8--5-----------------------------------
-------------------------------------------------------------
------------8--7--5----------8--7--5-------------------------
-------------------------------------------------------------
-------------------------------------------------------------
-------------------------------------------------------------

Don't forget that those licks are the sequence and you have to repeat it in order to get polyrhythmic sound!

We were also talking about stretching and string skipping so here is another lick

Lesson notes from August 31st
I showed you how to combine different arpeggios and turn them into licks!
We started by harmonizing G major scale:

Gmaj7 - Ami7 - Bmi7 - Cmaj7 - D7 - Emi7 - F#mi7b5
Than figured out arpeggio for each chord:

Gmaj7



Ami7


Bm7


Cmaj7


D7


Emi7


F#mi7b5


So combining arpeggios is very easy! All you have to do is to take first three strings from one arpeggios and the rest from another one!

Here is an example:

I combined G maj7 and Ami7 arpeggios



Here is another combination of Ami7 and Emi7



Try your own combinations and feel free to let me know if you have any questions or need help with anything!

Review from October 1st 2012
Hi guys last video chat we were talking about exercises that will help you develop legato technique
Here are the exercises I showed:

E |--8--5--7--8--7--5----------------------------------|----|
B |--------------------8--5--7--8--7--5----------------|----|
G |--------------------------------------7-----5-------|----|
D |----------------------------------------------------|----|
A |----------------------------------------------------|----|
E |----------------------------------------------------|----|


----------------------------------------------------|----|
----------------------------------------------------|----|
--7--5--6--4--5--6--7--5--6--4--5--6--7--5--6--4----|----|
----------------------------------------------------|----|
----------------------------------------------------|----|
----------------------------------------------------|----|


----------------------------------------------------|----|
----------------------------------------------------|----|
--4--5--7--5--4--5--7--9--7--5--4--5--7--5--4--5----|----|
----------------------------------------------------|----|
----------------------------------------------------|----|
----------------------------------------------------|----|


-----------------------------5--7--8----------------||
-----------5--7--8-----------------------------5----||
--------------------4--5--7-------------------------||
--4--5--7-----------------------------4--5--7-------||
----------------------------------------------------||
----------------------------------------------------||

If it is too complicated you can play first note on each string this will make it much easier!
Make sure to practice those exercises at a slow tempo using a metronome and you will get great results fast! smile.gif
Please let me know if you have any questions and I will see you on the forum! smile.gif

Wednesday October 10th review

Hi guys! Last video chat I was explaining the circle of fifth
If you will look at the picture you will se that by going clockwise sharps being added counter clockwise flats


Wednesday October 10th review

Hi guys! Last video chat I was explaining the circle of fifth

Sharp being added in this order:

F# - C# - G# - D# - A# - E#

Flats being aded in this order:

Bb - Eb - Ab - Db - Gb - Cb

Here is the breakdown of major scales and parallel minors with sharps and flats:

G (E minor) = F#
D (B minor) = F# - C#
A (F# minor) = F# - C# - G#
E (C# minor) = F# - C# - G# - D#
B (G# minor) = F# - C# - G# - D# - A#
F# (D# minor) = F# - C# - G# - D# - A# - E#



F (D minor) = Bb
Bb (G minor) = Bb - Eb
Eb (C minor) = Bb - Eb - Ab
Ab (F minor) = Bb - Eb - Ab - Db
Db (Bb minor) = Bb - Eb - Ab - Db - Gb
Gb ( Eb minor) = Bb - Eb - Ab - Db - Gb - Cb

Lesson noted from Wednesday October 17
We were using inversions from G major scale
The chords are
G major - A minor - F# diminished

What is chord inversion

A chord's inversion describes the relationship of its bass to the other tones in the chord. For instance, a G major triad contains the tones G, B and D; its inversion is determined by which of these tones is used as the bottom note in the chord.

A root-position chord Play is sometimes known as the parent chord of its inversions. For example, G is the root of a G major triad and is in the bass when the triad is in root position; the 3rd and the 5th of the triad are sounded above the bass.

There are 2 triad inversions:

In the first inversion of a G major triad , the bass is B—the 3rd of the triad—with the 5th and the root stacked above it (the root now shifted an octave higher), forming the intervals of a 3rd and a 6th above the inverted bass of B.

In the second inversion, the bass is D—the 5th of the triad—with the root and the 3rd above it (both again shifted an octave higher), forming a 4th and a 6th above the (inverted) bass of D.



We will be doing inversions on first 3 strings

G major







A minor







F# diminished







Why inversions are so important?

First of all it will help you to learn the neck better!

There are two ways to use inversions to ensure that they make sense in your chord progression.

Smooth out a jumpy bass line. If you’re looking for ways to make your bass move by step rather than by leaps of 4ths and 5ths all the time, an inversion can help. Let’s say that your progression is this: C G F C F G C. As you can see, that bass line jumps quite a bit by 4ths and 5ths. By using inversions, you can smooth that out: C G/B F/A C/G F G C. Any note after the slash is the bass note.
Provide a bit of variety if a chord is held for many beats. If you find that you’re song requires you to hold a C for 8 beats before moving on to F, you can play C for 4 beats, then move to C/E for 4 beats, before finally moving on to F. The inverted chord (C/E) allows the bass to move, and provides a slightly different texture, offering a bit of variety of sound.


In other words it will give you variety of chords octaves and voicing when you are playing solo or rhythm plus will help you understand neck in triads which is very important when you are trying to learn the neck!

Please feel free to let me know if you have any questions or need help with anything!

Video chat from November 4th
Hi guys we were talking about modes and how to use them!
The main trick is to understand is that all modes is a part of the same scale
so say for example G major scale will have 7 modes for each starting note


It will have:
F# Locrian - G major - A dorian - B phrygian - C lydian - D mixolydian - E minor

So the notes will stay the same the only thing will change is the order!
That means that if I have A dorian chord progression I can play any modes from G major scale over it!
This way you will be able to cover the whole neck and wouldn't have to worry about positions anymore!

Let me know if you have any questions or need help with anything! smile.gif

Lesson notes from November 18th
We were talking about combining arpeggios in style of Joe Pass
Here is the tab for all 7 triads from G major scale
G - Ami - Bmi - C - D - E mi - F#dim
E |----------------------------------------------------|
B |----------------------------------------------------|
G |--------------------------------------------2-------|
D |-----------------2--------4-----2--5-----4-----2----|
A |-----2--5-----3-----2--5-----3--------5-------------|
E |--3--------5----------------------------------------|


-----------------------------------------2----------|
-----------------------3-----1--5-----3--------5----|
-----4-----2--5-----4-----2--------4--------5-------|
--5-----4--------5----------------------------------|

--3-----2--5-----3--7L-7----------------------------|----|
-----3--------5-------------------------------------|----|
----------------------------------------------------|----|
----------------------------------------------------|----|
----------------------------------------------------|----|
----------------------------------------------------|----|


Here is a Guitar pro file with a few licks
Attached File  Joe_pass_style.gp5 ( 2.3K ) Number of downloads: 34


Also we were talking about extensions 9 - 11 - 13
The easiest way to find extension is to use next chord technique
say we have a G major 7 chord and need to find all 3 extensions
take the next chord to it (one step up A mi)
and you will get all 3 extensions
G - B - D - F# - A - C - E
Please feel free to let me know if you have any questions or need help with anything!

Here is a Guitar pro file with a few licks

Also we were talking about extensions 9 - 11 - 13
The easiest way to find extension is to use next chord technique
say we have a G major 7 chord and need to find all 3 extensions
take the next chord to it (one step up A mi)
and you will get all 3 extensions
G - B - D - F# - A - C - E

Lesson notes from Sunday December 2nd
Hi guys in the last video chat I was showing you stretching exercises it is very important to stretch and warm up every time before playing I had a hand injury a few years ago because I wasn't taking it seriously and it took a long time to fully recover so be very careful!
I showed you 5 exercises based on stretching that you can add into your warm up routine

Make sure to always start at a slow tempo and use a metronome when you are doing those exercises
do it for 15 minutes before and 15 minutes after practice and you will see huge improvement in your technique
