Thanks for understanding KLB, i really appreciate it.
the point of this excercise guys, is its only 3 chord shapes, but they are 'squeezed' into the context of different scale patterns. You dont need to turn your mind into a messy boggy database of 150,00 chord shapes. Its a dead end. Or better yet, it has no end.
Observe how the same shape is 'pushed' minor and then even diminished, its the same chord, but the scale is like a different set of fences on the landscape.
PS this is the secret to the fretboard, shhhh
well, that and thinking in terms of ⅰ ,ⅳ, ⅴ .. later we add ⅱ, ⅵ & ⅲ and you're in business. Abandon the A,B♭, -> G thing, you dont need to understand it to make music.
Nicely done and a great video!
I"ve never played or seen (in person) a strummer with split frets. On a "standard" diatonic instrument, starting the scale on the seventh gives you the Locrian mode (1-b2-b3-4-b5-b6-b7-1, e.g., B-C-D-E-F-G-A-B). The diminsihed triad (1-b3-b5, e.g. B-D-F) doesn't present any difficulties here: what is tricky is to play the diminished 7th chord (1-b3-b5-bb7, e.g., B-D-E-G#). If I really wanted to play that note on a strumstick, I guess I would be bending up the b6th note.
BTW, I first learned the modes when taking piano (Lord, that was forty years ago now!): in C, they have the nice property of being all on the white keys, which makes for an easy mnemonic.
Tres Seaver !!!
first man who ever welcome me to cigar box nation over two years ago !!
thanks mate, very good information :)
need a strummer made by a friggin GENIUS to capo to the locrian..
