Hi GMC pals!! How are those fingers doing? Get ready for this lesson which is based on another song from my future instrumental album.
As soon as it starts, we have some tapping in the D minor harmonic scale where we occasionally let some notes ring. This means it's not a traditional tapping in the style of Eddie Van Halen. The idea is to leave the old tapping technique behind for a while in order to avoid monotony and to come up with new ideas, mainly rhythmical. Tapping gets really interesting when we focus on it's rhythm.
It´s important to learn how to listen to the chord changes in your mind and also in theory. When we do that, we are able to imprint different characteristics to the same idea and make it "stroll" around different landscapes. You will find below the minor harmonic scale and its corresponding names and chords and use it to create new ideas.
If we harmonize the A minor harmonic scale, we get:
Am (ACE) - Am/M7 (ACEG#)
B dim (BDF) - B dim7 (BDFA)
C aum (CEG#) - CM7/+5 (CEG#B)
Dm (DFA) - Dm7 (DFAC)
E (EG#B) - E7 (EG#BD)
F (FAC) - Fm7 (FACE)
G# dim (G#BD) - G# dim7 (G#BDF)
* One Step Down
* C - G - C - F - A - D
