Hi Matt have a few questions for you smile.gif was watching a interview with Steve Lukather and he said a few things which I kind of understood but need clarification. First he says for doing blues it sounds great if you define the 3rds?? I'm assuming that means the 3rd degree of the particular scale he is talking about? A plus 5 Im assuming is the 5th degree but sharp?? And finally he says do a 1,V,X?? Is the 10th a octave higher? Thank you Professor smile.gif

Hey

Yeah he was talking about the 3rd of the chord, so if you're on A7 you target the note C#. And yes the +5 is the #5 of the chord, and a 10th is a 3rd plus an octave.


If you play A on the 5th fret 6th string, then C# on the 4th fret 5th string that's a third. If you play that C# on the 6th fret of the 3rd string that's a 10th.

So you're right on!
