Play The 7 Modes in 7 Days (Tabs Incl.) Photo by Marta Monleón Modes are used in all kinds of musical styles like Jazz, Rock, Metal, Flamenco, etc. They create a certain mood or feel to your playing. If you feel like you are stuck playing solos using just Major/Minor or Pentatonic/Blues scales all the time, you’re ready to call on the modes and dive a little deeper. When I first got introduced to modes I was a little bit overwhelmed, but also excited to explore this whole new world of boundless possibilities. I soon realized it’s all about the journey and not the destination, so enjoy the process! There are 7 modes which can be derived from the major scale: 1 – Ionian 2 – Dorian 3 – Phrygian 4 – Lydian 5 – Mixolydian 6 – Aeolian 7 – Locrian Each mode starts and stops on a different note within the major scale. In this post we take the C major scale to explain the modes, but you can derive the 7 modes from any major scale in any key. I challenge you to understand the basics and work your way through each mode in 7 days.

10 Essentials On Guitar Improvisation Photo by Simone13 AKA John Pastorello Besides writing and playing songs I just love improvising. When I practice improvising I always first pour myself a cup of green tea, I put on some folk music (e.g. Ray La Montagne, Damien Rice, Stephen Fretwell, Glen Hansard, Sheryl Crow, etc.) on or and then I start to improvise over these songs. Other times I practice melodic patterns, triads, arpeggios, licks, everything that will spice up my improvisation skills. Improvising is one of the most fun and fulfilling aspects of guitar playing, but also something that requires a lot of hard work and dedication. Here are 10 basic essentials that will help you become a better improviser. 1 – Pentatonics / blues Learn to play the pentatonic/blues scale all over the neck in all five shapes. 2 – Major Scale Next to the pentatonic scale, the major scale is the most important scale to learn. Once you can play the scale in all positions, connect the different positions with each other.

Jouer tous les accords Avec les accords barrés, il est facile de jouer tous les accords. Le principe de décalage, ou "la magie de la guitare" Partons d'un accord en première position pour expliquer le principe de décalage. C'est l'accord de Mi majeur en première position. Remarquez que c'est le même accord que Mi majeur, décalé d'une case vers les aigües. Hein ? Oui, on a bien décalé toutes les notes d'une case. Si vous avez compris le principe, vous saurez jouer l'accord de Fa# majeur. La fondamentale : le repère Pour les accords que l'on vient de jouer, c'est la note jouée sur la corde de Mi grave qui donne le nom à l'accord. Comme vous connaissez les noms des notes sur la corde de Mi, vous savez jouer tous les accords majeurs (il y en a 12). Par exemple pour jouer Si bémol majeur il suffit de trouver la note Si bémol sur la corde de Mi puis de jouer la position “accord majeur” utilisée juste au-dessus à partir du Si bémol (6ème case). Voici quelques exemples d'accords. Et les accords mineurs ? Mais attention.

Guitar Chords Magic | Free Guitar Chords | Guitar Chord Charts The Aesthetics of Popular Music Popular music is widely assumed to be different in kind from the serious music or art music that, until very recently, monopolized attention in philosophical discussions of music. In recent years, however, popular music has become an important topic for philosophers pursuing either of two projects. First, popular music receives attention from philosophers who see it as a test case for prevailing philosophies of music. Even now, most philosophy of music concentrates on the European classical repertoire. Therefore, if there are important differences between popular and art music, widening the discussion to include popular music might encourage us to reconsider the nature of music. Although the category of popular music presupposes differences from serious music, there is limited consensus about the nature of these differences beyond the near-tautology that most people prefer popular music to art music. Table of Contents 1. Gurney is not entirely negative about popular music. 2. 3.

Harmonic Progressions | Learning and Loving Music Theory Kelvin, You actually caught a mistake on the roman numerals! Thanks, I’ll have to fix that. The first and last chords of the progression are not 7th chords. Somehow I inadvertently typed “I7″ on the first chord of all the major keys. (Notice that I didn’t do that for the minor keys.) 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.
