Re: Autumn Leaves and ii-V-I

C-E-G-A isn't C7 its C6 my friend C-E-G-Bb is C7 F#half diminished is F#-A-C-E but if you do a Cmaj7 chord with the F# as the bass you would get F#-C-E-G-B ( u could put the A in there to get the b3 in ) So thet G in there would be the b9 which is a pretty common thing to put into jazz, and the B is...

Why does this work ? and how to write it in harmony

So I was doing something that went F#-A-D-E all major chords and I was wondering why it works and how would I write it in harmony. because F#= F#-A#-C#- then A = A-C#-E then D = D-F#-A then E = E-G#-B So my guess is when it changes to A from F#, it works because we are moving chromatically from A# t...

Re: Barre Chords

And maaaan that hurt, cause it was in like Bb, so b...

Re: Hybrid Picking

I'm not sure how to split the strings up between the pick and fingers. Do you split them like you would for the thumb and fingers in fingerstyle? Yes and no. When I'm playing accompaniment and chords and stuff I play the bass with the pick and the higher notes with my three other fingers, the good ...

Re: Hybrid Picking

Well if you know how to play fingerstyle that'll help because you'll have two of the three fingers you'll be using well trained, the right hand pinky was tough to train for me but with time it'll come. I use it for jazz stuff where I can do more syncopated stuff with my fingers than with my pick, id...

Re: So a quick mode related question

BTW when I said C Myxolidian I really meant C Lydian ( G major Scale ) Myxolidian would be F major scale with the Bb. But I'd be careful with that last one - if you use a different scale each time through, it's really hard to construct a coherent solo. It's more likely to come out as a string of unr...

Re: Anyone learn anything new over the past weekend?

Well I've been experimenting with actually playing modes instead of just talking about them. And I'm working on three very different jazz tunes All the Things you Are Blue Bossa And Oleo All the Things you are is kinda complicated harmonically what with all the tonality changes. Oleo is a bit simple...

So a quick mode related question

So lets say somebody is playing just a vamp using a D min 7 chor, in D min 7 I could use: D dorian scale ( C major scale notes) D Phrygian ( Bb major scale notes watching out maybe for that Eb which is a minor 9th interval from D) D Aeolian ( D minor scale same notes as F major ) I could use melodic...

Villa's goal was just WTF. Watching the games on ESPN is no fun, the commentarists don't get all excited like everyone else in the world does. I'm rooting for Spain, GO past Metropolis! Italy was a total failure. But football games bore me :(, I just TiVo them and watch em in fast Forward until I se...
