Intervallic Techniques - StumbleUpon

Intervallic Techniques - StumbleUpon
Welcome to Neal's Intervallic studies for the guitar. My goal here is to teach players to break away from the usual linear and scalar pattern approach to the guitar. I always found it more musical when using a wide intervallic style of playing like Eric Johnson and several Fusion Jazz Players. So for now, I have placed a few examples below to get you guys started. Enjoy! Here is a couple of video examples on my youtube page using some of these techniques.

Harmonic Functions - Augmented Sixths We will start by transforming the iv degree chord of the A minor key into an augmented sixth chord. Below is the i - iv - V - i progression in A minor: now, we set the iv degree chord in first inversion: by raising the root of the iv degree chord a half-step (D# in this case) we get an augmented sixth chord: Targeting a Mode - Turning Scales into Solos - Part 6 If there are two main points that you have, hopefully, gotten thus far in each of our “Turning Scales into Solos” series of lessons, it’s that, first and foremost, a solo should be determined by the song, by its mood, feel and chord progression. The second idea is that a single scale is rarely the only solution to finding a way to solo over a chord progression. Getting these two thoughts into your head is essential if you want to be able to solo over any song. If the point hasn’t been driven home yet then, again hopefully, this latest installment will help you drive the point home.

The Chord Guide: Pt I – Chord Progressions Chord progressions are the canvas on which musicians paint their masterpieces, and it’s a canvas which is a piece of art in itself. A chord progression can be subtle and in the background or it can be blatant and up front; it can be simple and catchy, or it can be technical and complex, it can stay in one key or it can change like the seasons. In any of these cases a chord progression is what drives the song as it literally shapes the music that accompanies it. Chord progressions are like a cozy home where melody and rhythm can kick their feet up.
