Hi Aethermachine, I believe your thinking is correct. It sounds like you have already thought this through, but I will try to quickly flesh out how I would analyze this on pen and paper. Lets start by assuming you are correct in both your questions: 1. Phrygian#3 and Harmonic Minor are essentially the same thing. 2. Phrygian#3 is also a mode of harmonic minor. To hash it out, lets take C Major as the 'Parent Scale': C D E F G A B C Play C Major starting and resolving with the 3rd degree, an...

Goodluck Heyman! I am really only referring to the spot where you play a 'lick' after hitting the A7 chord (in case there is any confusion). I hope the idea makes sense and that it works for you! If it's still a bit unclear, I would be happy to post a video...just let me know!GODSPEED!!

Hey Man!Sorry for the slow reply. Work has been KILLING me the past couple weeks barely giving me the time to fit in my daily practice...SO NOT COOL!!!Anyway, I can totally agree with your approach of thinking in 'triads'. Triads are the salt on the steak if you will, and really get to the heart of the harmonic movement between chords. The options that become available are overwhelming when you start playing inversions, or even subbing an interval for a 'non-chord tone' interval. For example...

Hey man!Glad that you liked the progression so much! I can't take credit for it though....I found it on youtube somewhere a while back and have just kept it around for studying. The movement inside of it really offers a lot when you look into it. As for my 'fretboard technique', that is probably more of a bad habit on my end that I should try to keep myself aware of. I feel I do it too much, so I appreciate you pointing it out. Great job working with the chord extensions though! I will pl...

I understand if it's a little daunting to look at so many chords...maybe I was a bit overzealous with my post. But I just find the sequence very good to break into sections for studying... If it's useful, and of interest to people here, maybe this would be a good thread to break down chord progressions and discuss chord relationships. We could start by looking at the first three chords in my progression above....(A7---> C#7---> F#min7), or can toss mine aside to look at smaller 3 or 4 chord pro...

Haha thank you every one, and for putting him in his place Pebber! I am just far too nice and new here to call it, so took the path of least resistance...

Chords and rhythms are definitely an important/massive subject! Personally, I try to find time to analyze chord progressions...and find new ways to voice the chords within it to activate different 'leading' between them. I don't know how you like to practice, but analyzing the chords and cadences inside of a chord progression is both fun and rewarding for me. I write out the chords, spell them out, and find ways to interpret their relationship to each other. I then try to voice the chords wit...

I guess its about time another warm up gets posted in this thread! This is just a blip of me working on some alternate picking. A warm up exercise I have been enjoying for the past week or so. The metronome is at 60bpm and I am picking 6 notes for ever beat (6:1). It's the first time I feel decently solid at 60 bpm with this exercise! Gotta keep pushing it!! 70 is next!Cheers,

Looks like you're really getting the idea down! I'd say keep working the thumb and finger movement/independence. Slow it right down if you need to and really, really digest it. The freedom from a 'stiff arm' is coming, but the journey is always getting it to the next level! I am constantly having to remind myself to relax my shoulder muscles on my picking arm when I practice... Keep it up, it looks like great progress!

Cool Thread Adam. I am happy for this topic because it will likely keep warm up/picking exercises fresh and exciting for everyone. I find it really interesting seeing all the ways people get their hands moving and 'listening' to the motor directions that the mind dictates. Also love that frankensteinz warm up. And Ray, that chromatic pent exercise video was also very good! I will be trying that one out today. I would like to say thanks to you guys for posting so often and getting this thre...
