For rock it is actually that simple - the chord notes are the strong ones.

You don't necessarily need to memorise them - if you are jamming in the pentatonic scale the strong notes are never far away. So just experiment and try bending from the different pentatonic notes until it sounds good! Many times you don't even have to bend - just give a pentatonic note some vibrato - and there you have it! smile.gif


Excellent - i cant certainly work with that biggrin.gif Thanks Kris and Andrew. Ive been working on all techniques at GMC in the hope i will make a good COW, MOOOOOOO!!!! laugh.gif

Very nice, matt! I enjoyed it quite well.

As for strong notes, by Andrew's explanation, would it be fair to say that the root or 5th note of any given chord are the strong notes?

@mattachuck: it looks like you use a few repetitive patterns throughout your piece in different boxes and strings, would you mind posting what patterns you are using? I really like them.

EDIT: I just did a little reading and I see that the strongest note would be the root, medium notes would belong in the chord, weak notes belong in the scale, but not the current chord.
