That's sounds really cool Joe !
Very good lesson about harmony!
Really tasteful playing there Joe - nice harmony parts !
Opened my eyes concerning harmonising in the pentatonic scale. Great work Joe!
Great one Joe,you have amamzing guitar sound.
Very Very interesting Joe! Cool song too!
I like it
Very nice melodic solo Joe. Good job
Thanks Guys I appreciate
great lesson Joe.nice work
Very nice, great topic as always Joe!
Useful lesson and great sound Joe
Sounds cool. Great lesson as always Joe!
Very nice lesson Joe!
I love it. Getting to work on this one right away. Nice BT as well.
Cool man, this really clicked with me. Since D Dorian and E Phrygian are all diatonic to A Aeolian, all I gotta do is play the same shape from the A Pentatonic in D or E Pentatonic and it'll sound harmonized? That's sooo cool, I can't freakin' wait to try that with my band. Many thanks dude!!
You Get It Right!
Sweet lesson, Joe! At parts it really reminded me of Eric Clapton's Bad Love.
I don't know this song I've to check thanks for suggestion
Hi Joe, nice lesson, and very helpful!
Still trying to get my head around harmonization...!
I have a question, if that's ok...
The three scales A, D and E minor pentatonic are, as you say, all diatonic to the root note, A minor. I noticed that when yo move to the D minor pentatonic scale, you use a G minor, although I was expecting just the chords built on the A minor scale, where G would be major. G minor contains a Bb, which means it's obviously built from the D minor scale.
So...when using this technique of three pentatonic scales based on the root, 4th, and 5th, do you recommend using the chords from the actual minor scales being used (in this case A minor, D minor, and E minor), rather than the chords built on the root note, as I was expecting?! In this case, I'm not sure it's that important, as I don't think you're playing the Bb, as it's not part of the D minor pentatonic scale, but I hope you get my drift. Basically, chords built on the individual scales, or chords built on the root note scale?, or is it just personal choice?!
I would have stuck to the A minor chords, so I have learned something!!!
Hi Joe, I think you can ignore my question above now..it confuses me, and I wrote it!
I've had a chance to look at the theory, just have to use it now.
Pentatonic Guitar Harmony
The whole study presents a A minor pentatonic melody first alone and then harmonized in 4ths and 5ths.
All diatonic to A minor scale, so all you have to do is play the same melody or riff on the root pentatonic and on the 4th or 5th pentatonic to harmonize on the fly any melody nice and easy, and is what I've done with this lesson, you will first hear and see the melody in A minor pentatonic, then you will see the same melody played on the 4th D minor pentatonic while hearing both harmonized, and so on for the root A minor and the 5th E minor pentatonic.
Harmonizing this way is so easy and automatic, you simply have to transpose the same stuff a 4th or a 5th up the neck that, that can be done real time live!
See you next lesson,
