12 Essential Blues Turnarounds
by Andy Ellis Are your blues a little tired? Crave some fresh sounds? Guitar Lesson Click here to download the power tab for this guitar lesson. Form and Function First, a definition: A turnaround is a short (typically two-bar) passage at the end of a blues progression that’s designed to elegantly walk you to the V7, which in turn resolves to the I7 in bar 1. Contrary Motion A turnaround derives its energy from tension and release. Take a close look at the intervals in bar 1’s second, third, and fourth beats. Contrary motion also powers Ex. 2. You don’t have to arpeggiate the intervals. Contractions Many turnarounds feature a moving line against a repeated, static note. The Eaug functions as an uptown V7, adding a touch of jazzy sophistication. Let’s first analyze this turnaround in terms of scale degrees: The line comprises 3, 4, b5, and 5, and the root repeats above it. We’re in the key of C. That’s cool—but why stop there?

OVERDRIVE MUSIC - La Gamme mineure mélodique et son utilisation Nous focaliserons notre attention sur 3 des modes de cette gamme (ne vous laissez pas impressionner par les noms de ces modes...) : - Le premier mode se joue sur un accord de Gm ou Gm7. Le but est de superposer cette fameuse 7ème Majeure avec la Fondamentale et surtout la 7ème mineure (ce qui va créer une dissonance plus ou moins forte). Le son obtenu est superbe, expérimentez-la pour vous en rendre compte. Sur le manche, les notes en violet sont les fondamentales. Les positions Ecoutez le son de ces gammes en SURVOLANT LE LOGO AUDIO SOUS CHAQUE IMAGE. Premier Mode C'est la première position de la gamme de Sol mineur mélodique.

10 Ways to Play the Most Beautiful Open Chord Shapes 10 Ways to Play the Most Beautiful Open Chord Shapes Part I A great way to make your chord progressions and songs sound awesome is to use open chord shapes. I always love to use these chords to add some flavor to my chord progressions. One of my favorite chords is Fsus2.That chord has got the whole package for me. It’s sounds beautiful, gentle, tight, cool and rough at the same time. When you move an open chord up the neck the name of the chord changes and the chord gets extended with 1 or 2 notes. While you can play barre chords at any fret on the fingerboard, open chords can only be played at certain frets. Because of all the extended chord names I didn’t bother to name every single one of them. It’s all about incorporating these chords into your songs and chord progressions, putting your creativity to the test, experimenting with all the possibilities, replacing some basic chords for these extraordinary ones, learning to hear what sounds right and what feels good. Have a great time!

Internet Archive: Digital Library of Free Books, Movies, Music & Wayback Machine The Chord Guide: Pt II – Barre Chords Barre chords are the most valuable weapon to have in any guitarists arsenal. This is because they are moveable, which means you only have to learn a few positions and you can move them around the entire fretboard. Of course, it is absolutely essential that you know the notes on all the strings, and at the very least, the notes on the E, A and D strings. This is an excellent guide on learning your notes. Be sure to read it first before you tackle barre chords. First of all know the notes of the open strings: from the 6th string (thickest string to the 1st string (thinnest string) they are: E A D G B E, also know that the notes repeat themselves at the 12th fret, so the notes on the 12 fret are also E A D G B E. There are three main barre chord positions, the E position, the A position and the D position, these are all related to their respective open chords: The O’s represent open notes while the X’s are notes you don’t play.

MATT WARNOCK GUITAR When improvising over a maj7 chord in a jazz or modern improvisational context, most guitarists will fall back on one of two sounds, the major scale and the Lydian mode. While both of these scales offer the right melodic content to navigate a maj7 chord, producing either a natural 11 or #11 interval in that context, there are a few other melodic devices that you can add to your repertoire to help you expand your maj7 improvisational pallet. One of these devices is the Lydian Pentatonic Scale. While this scale may not be as popular as its cousins the Major and Minor Pentatonic Scales, the Lydian Pentatonic Scale can offer a fresh approach to soloing over maj7 chords, while at the same time retaining the Lydian #11 sound and being related to the Major Pentatonic Scale that you may already have under your fingers. In this article we’ll explore the harmonic and melodic possibilities of the Lydian Pentatonic Scale, so grab your axe, crank your amp and let’s dig in! Lydian Pentatonic Scale

Harmonic Progressions | Learning and Loving Music Theory - StumbleUpon Kelvin, You actually caught a mistake on the roman numerals! Thanks, I’ll have to fix that. In the classical tradition, for the sake of stability, the first and last chords of a circle-of-fifths progression are usually triads, not 7th chords. Harmonic Sequences Part 2 In the jazz tradition all chords usually are 7ths, in which case the progression will start and end with 7th chords. Thanks again for your interest and input.
