This is so cool.
I like the whole concept of this series.
So are you explaining the theory in one lesson and applying it another?
I just wasnt sure how this was being done.
But very coold lesson.
Exotic and interesting scale.
Wow, love these chords! And like the solo in your other lesson too especially the beginning when you already nail what's unique in this scale.
I have 2 questions though:
- is it neapolitan because it has something to do with the city Naples? (Italian folk music and stuff?)
- is there a particular reason that you approach this scale as a Db whole-tone with an added C? Is it wrong to say it's a C major scale with two notes lowered a semi-tone on the 2nd and 3rd degree? So is it a special type of a whole-tone scale or rather a special (minor-like) variation of the C major scale?
thanks in advance.
PS: If you're delivering lessons in such tempo, I'm not going to be able to catch up but I'll learn as many as I can from the theory!
Thank you for your great comments!
I promess the lessons of the rhythm guitar of the last part of this series are waaaay much better than these ones, so if you liked this lesson I think you'll enjoy a lot more the ones that are to come.
1st- The scale is related to the city. The composers of the "Neapolitan School" used the Neapolitan Chord. This scale is named by that chord.
2nd- The way we hear it I think is more related to that sound. But the chord (the Neapolitan Chord) comes from a major scale so you could think it the other way if you want.
Yes. That's the concept behind this series. A lesson about the progression and the scale; and in the other lesson the solo or application.
This questions are answered in the 101 lesson about this series.
Very interesting lesson!!
Thanks for this!
