ALL SCALES (MAJ. and MIN etc. ) WILL BE DERIVED FROM THESE FOUR BASIC MAJOR SCALE FINGERING PATTERNS. ULTIMATELY 5 MAJOR KEYS WILL BE POSSIBLE IN EACH POSITION WITH TYPE 1 AND ITS' FOUR DERIVATIVE FINGERING PATTERNS - 1A, 1B, 1C, AND 1D. THIS SAME FACT APPLIES TO TYPE 4 WITH ITS' DERIVATIVES 4A, 4B, 4C, AND 4D. FINGERING TYPES 2 AND 3 HAVE NO DERIVATIVE MAJ. FINGERING PATTERNS.
( ( S ) = finger stretch )
(F MAJ. ASCENDING)
(OBSERVE THE FINGERING - NOTE COMMON FINGER(S) BETWEEN MOST FORMS)
Make the upstroke sound as much like the downstroke as possible by favoring the lower strings with the returning upstroke of the pick. There will be a slight natural accent on beats 2 and 4 because of the downstroke hitting the heavy strings first - but this is good, as it is comparable to the drummers use of the hi-hat cymbal on these beats.
(G Maj. Ascending)
MOST OF THE CHORD FORM PAGES FROM HERE ON ARE HIGHLY CONCENTRATED. I RECOMMEND THAT YOU PRACTICE ONE LINE AT A TIME WHILE GOING ON WITH THE NOTE STUDIES ON THE FOLLOWING PAGES. KEEP COMING BACK PERIODICALLY UNTIL ALL FORMS AND SEQUENCES ARE MASTERED.
(D Maj. -Ascending)
(A Maj. -Ascending)
Note: These strokes are used with regular accoustic and amplified (high-register) rhythm playing.
DO NOT BE CONCERNED WITH THE THEORETICAL EXPLANATION OF THE MORE COMPLEX CHORDS - THIS WILL BE COVERED IN A LATER SECTION. MOST IMPORTANT FOR NOW IS THE PHYSICAL ABILITY TO PERFORM THEM AND EVENTUAL MEMORIZATION OF ALL FORMS, CHORD TYPES AND ROOT
NOTE THAT THESE ARE THE SAME FORMS AS THOSE SHOWN ON THE OPPOSITE PAGE. THE ROOTS ARE DIFFERENT AND THE ORDER OF SEQUENCE IS REVERSED. CONSIDERABLE TIME WILL BE REQUIRED TO REALLY LEARN THEM.
MEMORIZE CHORD NAMES AND (DIATONIC) STRUCTURES IN ALL MAJOR KEYS.
NOTE: WHEN TWO CONSECUTIVE NOTES ARE PLAYED BY THE SAME FINGER ON ADJACENT STRINGS - 'ROLL' THE FINGERTIP FROM ONE STRING TO THE NEXT. . . DO NOT LIFT THE FINGER FROM THE STRING.
All diatonic chords (names and structures) must be memorized, in all k e y s . . .
(G Mel. Min. )
(D Melodic Minor)
(Practice all preceding dim. forms in all possible keys.. )
(Memorize the fingering patterns. . .practice both W. T. Scales, in all positions)
(...using the preceding forms practice and learn aug. triad arp's from all notes possible. . )
