  • Hi and welcome to this lesson! This lesson´s about rhythm and soloing. The harmonic minor scale is so popular. Used a lot by many guitar player as Y.M. just for name one. Something really interesting about this scale, from my point of view, is the fact you always can get a new sound for it.

    In this lesson, I use the harmonic scale, trying to scape from its classic sound. So, I think you´ll find a lot of licks to learn and add to your own vocabulary. Also, you´ll find some notes off and some diminished arpeggios.

    Take the lesson step by step and ask me if you need any help.

    Used scales: A harmonic minor
    Meter: 4/4 - 5/4
    Guitar Tune: Down 1/2 step
    TEMPO: 220 bpm


    As some of you know, I use a POD xt to rec all my lessons. In my board you´ll find my presets ;) On the other hand, here´re the settings for people who want them.

    Amp model: based on Marshall JCM-800
    Drive 2
    Bass 4.9
    Middle 5
    Treble 6.8
    Presence 5

    Small room Reverb:
    Predelay 0%
    Decay 42 %
    Tone 50%
    Mix 43%

    Remember: Same settings in other gear will produce a different sound, but, as we´ve talked at the forum, this could be useful for some members, so enjoy!

    If you have any problems let me know. Take care.
    see you all around.
