To get you started, below are six open string versions of the guitarist's favourite shape, the pentatonic. It's actually no more difficult than the minor pentatonic, and is beneficial from a practice point of view because it gets all ofyour fingers working.
The most common blues key is E, and from this key the most common scale shape is the open version top, left. It appears in other keys, the way to playing blues and rock solos. Although the scale can be used in many contexts, it's often effective The two chord sheets shown below should fit with the E minor over seventh also called dominant seventh chords.
The bar and E major pentatonic scales respectively above, left. It may be Western music.
A thorough knowledge of them will enable useful in each case to memorise them in blocks, for you to learn and understand chords, arpeggios and more instance one octave at a time. Start from the lowest root advanced scales as they arise, note; when you know the pattern up to the next root note, learn the The first six examples given here use open strings.
It is next octave. Most of these scales extend at least two octaves. If you find it difficult to remember the whole shape The major scale is more difficult to use in improvisation than at once, learn the first octave thoroughly before carrying on up the pentatonic or blues shapes because solos are more dependent on scale. Use the same fingers on the way down as on the way up.
There are three worth working on because they are moveable to any position on the ways round the problem - first, and most difficult, is to gain enough neck.
In the case of the G major scale above, left , its root note is knowledge and experience of harmony that you can anticipate on the sixth string, whereas the C and D majors have roots on the which notes will work and which won't. Secondly, one popular trick fifth string. Cross-reference these scales against the diagrams on when you hear a dodgy note is to move slowly and deliberately to page 5, find the key you need let's say B major - B can be found the next note of the scale.
Nine times out often the new note will on the sixth string, 7th fret. Now move the black root note to the sound OK. The third solution is to play the clashing note anyway 7th fret and play the scale shape — there's your B major scale and pretend you were deliberately 'utilising juxtaposition' Minor pentatonic Major Pentatonic HIS scale type, the fretted version of the easy open minor ERE'S another type of pentatonic scale, which should be pentatonics shown on page 6, is without a doubt the most fairly easy to learn if you've done some work with the common rock and blues scale.
By applying some of the minor version shown on the left hand page , Comparing melodic pattern ideas from the back pages of this book, it's a simple these Fretbox patterns with those on page 9, the shapes are often matter to create rock riffs using these shapes. This version shown identical. However, the sound, or tonality, of the major pentatonic is here with a root note of A works well over any Am chord, but can drastically different due to the different choice of root note. It has a also be used all the way through a bar blues sequence.
Although much sweeter, happier sound than its minor relative; people often the chord sequence shown below uses seventh chords, which say it sounds more 'Country'. But don't be fooled - rock players technically speaking feature a major third interval, you should find have abused this scale almost as much as the minor pentatonic.
Just that the minor thirds from this scale still sound perfectly convincing listen to Guns n' Roses' Knockin on Heavens Door - the solo Is in this context.
These five pentatonic scale, move all the notes down 3 frets, and you'll be positions all feature shared notes, so it should be possible to devise playing the major pentatonic equivalent. Try some cliched A minor ways to move smoothly between shapes, and this in turn will pentatonic rock licks, but tiiree frets lower, over the major key increase your repertoire of licks.
Natural minor Harmonic minor HERE are many types of minor scale, but for the purposes HE harmonic minor scale differs from the natural minor by of this book we're concentrating on the types most only one note.
The seventh note from the root up is a commonly used in contemporary music. Because the down from the root. Just by changing this note, the scale takes on sequence of notes starts from A instead of C.
In practical terms, the harmonic minor sounds more 'classical', even slightly Eastern, compared to the natural minor.
It also When you're playing in a minor key, the natural minor scale is often appears in the clean electric lead guitar lines from The Cure's a fairly safe choice for soloing purposes, and can lead to a more Killing an Arab. The chord sequence given here could be played in a variety of styles, from HARMONIC MINOR SOLOS straight-ahead rock to Bossa Nova, but since the chords in this The practice chord sequence shown below should be recorded at a example come from the C major 'family' A minor being the 6th fairly slow pace so you can really hear how the scale sounds against chord in that family , this scale will work whatever the chosen the chords.
You may find yourself avoiding the G note whilst groove, As with all the examples, you can transpose these examples playing over Dm - it kind of grates a bit - but the scale sounds into new keys using the diagrams on page 5. Blues Major blues or 'Country' s with the open blues shapes shown on page 6, this version NCE again, this is based upon the Pentatonic scale in this of the blues scale is not too tricky to learn, due to the fact cast; major pentatonic with the addition of one note.
This is called the sharpened 4th or flattened fifth and its sound of the scale, but it's a sound you will have heard thousands of presence between the 4th and 5th notes of the home key creates a times in rock, blues, jazz and country solos. Depending on the combination of note major blues scale in the same key is to shift your hand position choice against the current chord, it's possible to make this scale down the neck by 3 frets. Play the same shape as the minor blues sound surprisingly non-bluesy.
The reason this trick works is that examples, the sequence shown here is a minor blues bar - you the major blues scale is a mode of the normal, minor blues scale. The chords The chord sequence given below should work well as a fast two- have a distinctly jazzy sound, which can be enhanced by replacing beat piece of country music. For accompaniment, try fingerpicking the minor sevenths with minor ninths. You may also like to try this the chords, alternating the thumb and fingers in a claw pattern, or chord sequence with the natural or melodic minor scales.
Every scale type has several modes which are scales in themselves, but using- notes from the 'host' scale, In the TG scale book, we're looking at modes derived from the major scale, and each example starts on A to make the differences more apparent.
The major scale see page 7 is also known as the Ionian mode.
Dorian mode Y starting a major scale from its 2nd note instead of the HE Phrygian mode is made up of notes from a major scale, root note, the resulting mode is the Dorian. Since these but starting on the host scale's third note.
The result is a examples start on A, our Dorian shapes are based upon scale with a particularly 'Moorish' or Spanish flavour to it. But don't fall into the Once again, we'll take A as the starring note; because it is the third common trap of thinking of Dorian as the 'second mode'. All modes note in the F major scale, it follows that F major notes which will are scales in their own right - they just take their intervals from a make up our Phrygian mode.
The chord sequence given here is parent scale.

As songwriters we can use melody to control how the audience receives our lyric. Melody has the power to give a few simple words a powerful emotional impact, in a way that neither a poem or an instrumental tune can achieve on its own. But how do we choose words that show our melodies in the best light?
To make a lyric singable, the vowels have to work properly. When a singer performs a song, the audience hears vowels more easily than consonants. Sing it out loud and long, and enjoy the feeling of those big vowels passing over your teeth.
Songwriters tend to favour words with big vowels that avoid tongue-twisting combinations of hard consonants.
