Lesson 5: fingering chords, pentatonic scales, bands, soldiers of fortune

Chord fingerings.

No, no parsing of Tresa will not. Why, there everything is clear? Main hand correctly, check that the sound was quite muffled, but still similar to… well, on normal 🙂

now, we will take care of on the chords. Besides the fact that we represent them in theory, it would be nice to know how to play, so to speak, in practice. As you know, there are many ways “hold” the same chord. These methods, by the way, are called users, some of them today we will consider. Schematically, they look like this (tonic red, played, of course, only pressed the strings):

basically, the chords should be: we are looking for the tonic (i.e. chord La – note La) on the string, it must be chosen the fingering, and then actually build from this tonics rest of the chord. This way you can get familiar fingering open strings (muted marked by crosses):

to Do with these chords, we don’t we will, but to play them at leisure will not hurt, will soon come in handy. If you just so boring to play (most likely it does), then play the following sequence:
C | E | Am | F | Dm | G | C | E | Dm | G | C | Am | Dm | E | Am | Am
And then this:
B | Eb | Abm | E | Dbm | Gb | B | Eb | Dbm | Gb | B | Abm | Dbm | Eb | Abm | Abm

pentatonic scale.

Pentatonics – this sequence of notes that is, in principle, gamma. Just stripped down. Sounds, as the name implies, five, intervals, which form notes, very stable, so the pentatonic scale is absolutely universal in its application. It can be found in almost every song. Looks pentatonic scale. Play as the gamut from any fret, get used to it…

Bands.

Well, he came up to «delicious»! Bands – the bread Blues guitarist, uncharacteristic for strings in General, but very characteristic of the electric guitar in particular, the reception. Very beautiful.

When removing bands forget about the classic position of the left hand, obhvatyvala the fretboard so that the thumb acted out, press down the string multiple fingers to the neck and pushing from the bottom, pull up. Tighten up favourite sound and release. Oh yeah, before you pull, pull. Before, not during! Well, this is the band.

In principle, you can just push the string on the top and pull her, respectively, down. This applies to bass strings, there to pull up something special and nowhere.

Final note Benda, to which we pull quite hard initially identified, often it must be a tone (that is 2 frets) above the notes that pull. These bands are called full bend). But there are bands on half tone, half tone, and even two… only limits the strength of the strings 🙂

First, it is better to err and to take note which you need to pull it (just be found on the fretboard), and then to perform the bend. This will improve self-control and will help to avoid mistakes.

the Bands are different, not only such as I have described. For example, there are those that have and give back, that is, the string should sound on the way up and on the way back. There are only backward (pre-bend), in this case, the first string is tightened, and then removed. That’s all about them, go for it.

Soldiers of fortune (R. Blackmore).

Ritchie Blackmore, one of the founding fathers of rock guitar star deep purple (or dark purple, Deep Purple, and a composer of genius, it is a solo, like many others, played slide. But we still slide to anything, we will try to simulate it using bands.

In the product will meet and normal bending and reverse, and all-sorts. It is almost all consists of bands, so enjoy. Watch what note pull, stronger press down the string to the fingerboard – and good sound are provided.
good Luck!
