Here we are again, playing the guitar as usual! I expect you also play every day, because magic is 70% practice and you never
stop learning! That's what makes guitar playing more and more interesting as time goes by!!
In this lesson we'll see how to develop a melody gradually. It's a fragment of a song called "Espejismo Interior" ("Inner Mirage"),
included in my first solo album which I'm recording at present. I wanted to make it a lesson 'cause I feel it's very
helpful to show you how to compose a melody and recreate a little of John Petrucci's (DREAM THEATER) style, especially the
stuff in his spectacular, state-of-the-art solo albums.
We start with an intro, then comes the A riff that keeps on when the main melody begins and then is followed by the
B riff, which is the chorus of he song.
The tone is F sharp major, but the diminished scale is also used to give the song a darker feel. The main melody is in the
F sharp major scale. I also use the Debussy scale (Debussy was a fantastic pianist and composer who invented this scale), which
consists of either going up tone by tone or in this way: semitone, tone, semitone, tone, etc. This scale is also known as
hexatonic. Famous examples of the hexatonic scale include the whole tone scale, C D E F# G# A# C; the augmented scale, C D# E G Ab B C;
the Prometheus scale, C D E F# A Bb C; and what some theorists call the "blues scale", C Eb F F# G Bb C.
I hope you enjoy the lesson. Practise a lot and see you next time!!
