Re: Chord progression questions in some songs

You don't have to justify the key change. Movement from G to A or vice versa could imply you're in the key of D, or it could just sound good. The A#-C-F-G sequence could also be a sequence in Bb - or it could just sound good. Yes, you could play Gm pentatonic over G, but why not use the G Major pen...

The out-of-key chord happens a lot. Don't forget that in the descending A melodic minor you use a G natural, not a sharp.
I think you got it backward. In natural A minor, you use G natural and G# in melodic minor. No?

Re: Is your guitar teacher an donkey*ole?

Although I had a hard time understanding you in youtube post, I get the general idea. But I don't agree with you on the fact that your teacher is an a hole. He probably doesn't know how to deliver his technique to you. Probably a self taught musician. I don't like those people being my teacher eithe...

Chord progression questions in some songs

Hello everyone. I have questions about chord change in a song. In some songs, I see chord changes quite a bit. For example, Cryin' by Aerosmith, or Superfantastic by Mr. Big. IN Cryin', it starts with A key and sticks to it but in Pre Chorus, it changes to key of G. And in Intro, there's brief riff ...

Re: Modes?

A lot of beginners go through the "changing the position of the scale for each chord" thing, but it's important to remember that G-Em-C-D7 is a sequence in the key of G, as C-Am-F-G7 is in the key of C, so once you have the tonic Scale there is no need to specifically target chord tones at any poin...

Re: Modes?

So basically if my song is in the key of A minor, I can use the D Dorian over a Dmin chord.... the E Phrygian over an Eminor chord etc.... If he still is talking about A minor song, would Em be a right chord? shouldn't it be E major instead? And back to his original question, is it better to start ...

Re: Teaching an experiences piano player guitar. Any help?

I'm relatively beginner since I've been playing only for a year. Anyway, my guitar teacher plays multiple instrument and when I was learning from him, he would switch over between guitar and piano because piano would be flat out easier to explain things with on certain subjects than with guitar. He ...

Re: Basic Mode question

Within the set of pitches outlined by the tonality, you create a chord progression or a melody, and that has a "home" determined by the sequence of chords, or by the intervals between the pitches. If you set C as home base, either by using a Cm/Fm chord vamp or by melodic cadences like a descending...

Re: Modes!!

NoteBoat, I'm flabbergasted at your knowledge, not only here but in other threads as well. But I want to ask you about your method to figure out what notes should be played in certain modals. How is it easier to play in your way than conventional method?? In terms of F major, Do you actually think "...
