  • Welcome to lesson number 5. In this singing lesson we are going to do a
    connexion between your voice and your guitar.
    When you are a beginner musician it is a bit difficult to reproduce with
    your voice your guitar sounds but it is a very important tool for developing
    you ear and your composing abilities. That’s why we are going to practice
    some exercises that will help you to improve that.
    Your voice should be integrated with your thoughts. When you sing a pitch
    it means that you can imagine that sound so the voice is just an extension
    of thoughts.
    In this lesson we will begin this connexion with the pentatonic major scale.

    I recorded a singing improvisation using A pentatonic major scale in the
    main video to show you what could you do with this scale. I would like
    to hear you own improvisations in the forum. Please post them and I’ll reply
    you with some suggestions.

    Good luck.


    Hello GMC! Today I’ve contributed with Luciana’s singing lesson.
    In the main video I recorded the backing track using arpeggiated chords.
    The chord progression is:

    Am – Am – F# minor – D minor – E minor

    In the last video I play a nice A pentatonic major pattern using alternate
    picking technique. This exercise is very useful to practice the scale and
    improve you picking technique. Try to transpose the pattern to other
    positions and other scales.
