Its character is: innocence, simplicity, navety, children's talk. C Minor Declaration of love and at the same time the lament of unhappy love. All languishing, longing, sighing of the love-sick soul lies in this key. Db Major A leering key, degenerating into grief and rapture. C# Minor Penitential lamentation, intimate conversation with God, the friend and help-meet of life; sighs of disappointed friendship and love lie in its radius. D Major The key of triumph, of Hallejuahs, of war-cries, of victory-rejoicing. D Minor Melancholy womanliness, the spleen and humours brood.

Eb Major The key of love, of devotion, of intimate conversation with God. D# Minor Feelings of the anxiety of the soul's deepest distress, of brooding despair, of blackest depresssion, of the most gloomy condition of the soul. E Major Noisy shouts of joy, laughing pleasure and not yet complete, full delight lies in E Major. Musicovery. Listen to a Wall of rock Music. Everyone's Mixtape.

How should I voice more complex chords (e.g. Gm13) using few (3 to 4) notes, while maintaining the quality of the chord? A: It is important to note a few things when doing this. Much of this is learned by doing it wrong and having someone correct you, but you should learn the difference between – for example – a 6 chord and a 13 chord. Yes, the 6 is the same note as the 13, but they imply different things. If it’s a 6 chord, that means that you should replace the 7th with the 6th. If it’s a 13 chord, that means that the 6th is a “color tone”, and is used in addition to the 7th (which is flatted typically on a 13 chord!) That’s just one example, but experiment with every possible voicing you can think of (they don’t always have to contain the root, either!) I love to explore variations on a chord shape and, to do that, I will often: Download this PDF, and you’ll find a few chords to try: The key is exploration.

Intervallic Techniques. Welcome to Neal's Intervallic studies for the guitar.

Intervallic Techniques

My goal here is to teach players to break away from the usual linear and scalar pattern approach to the guitar.

The Ultimate Road Trip Playlist — 50 Best Road Trip Songs
