  • Hi GMC! In other opportunity we worked with the Ionian mode harmonized with triads, in this lesson we will see the Aeolian mode harmonized with triads.

    The first idea is that you learn the minor 7th arpeggio well, and then the work is simpler. You have to add the major second, perfect fourth and minor sixth. Now you have the Aeolian mode, of course we can harmonize the note of the arpeggios with triads! And you have to do this work in all the neck.

    The Aeolian mode is composed by 7 notes: The root, major second, minor third, just fourth, just fifth, minor sixth and minor seventh.

    We study the different boxes of this scale. First starting in the fifth string of the guitar in note C (C minor chord), then in the sixth string in note C too, now in sixth string again but now the box is to the front, then in fourth string, and the last one in fifth string to the back (to the bass direction of the neck).

    In this lesson I harmonize any note of the arpeggio with triads, including the seventh of the chord. You can harmonize this note with the third and the fifth of the chord. The final purpose is to play a melody harmonized at the same time but to manage it, you have to first pay attention to this work.

    Now I recommend practicing any box and pay attention to any notes!

    Enjoy it!
