Hi GMC'ers! Today we shall discuss a thing or two about 4 different ways to end a phrase, in which you can use the wonderful mixolydian mode, spiced up with a little dominant 7th or dominant 7th arpeggio with a suspended 4th.
I shall title this series “Smart Phrasing”, and with it I shall try to explore as many aspects of creative combinations that are actually aimed at improving your musical senses and helping you apply theoretical concepts so that you can make music.
Alright now, let’s see what this is all about. I have chosen a sequence used in an instrumental song I am working on, called: “Sunday Morning Stroll”, which is based on a simple progression (Asus2, Asus2/G, Asus2F#, Asus2) which I find quite appropriate in terms of emphasizing the A mixolydian mode (A B C# D E F# G A).
I took a simple theme which I tried to resolve in 4 different ways, this leading to a colorful combination of...
* Alternate Picking
* Inside Picking
* Chicken Picking
Listening Recommendations - If you haven’t already done this, I strongly recommend you to start listening to seasoned players that use these combinations.
* Andy Timmons
* Joe Satriani
* Guthrie Govan
* Michael Lee Firkins
* Marco Sfogli
Mixolydian (1 2 3 4 5 6 b7)
* A7 [1 3 5 b7]
* A7 sus4 [1 (3) 4 5 b7]
* E - A - D - G - B - E
(From thick to thin string)
C’mon grab your axe and let’s rock’n roll!!/ Cosmin
