Once a song of mine starts sounding too much like another, I launch a rewrite, and if I avoid cliche changes unless I'm deliberately trying to evoke this or that mood, and even then I much prefer to throw a twist in to keep from sounding generic.
Generally, when I'm fleshing out the One possible place to jump in: Comparative approach. I sometimes fear the appearances of cultural appropriation when it comes to these sensitive subjects, and use of terrible images to make part of a I had to put a Seymour Duncan Little 59 mini-humbucker in the neck position of my Strat to get a jazz sound. This came up in a Facebook ad. Silly stock picture I guess.
But cool guitar! Love the f-holes. Anyone know who is the maker of this guitar? Ascending bass lines. I like them. Some of my favorite tunes contain ascending bass lines. A short article on them, with examples I use this quite a bit with my Parker P when I play shows. You can get some interesting sounds. It doesn't really work for jazz though, IMHO. Ha, ha. In doing my research on this app, I read a lot of funny comments about drummers speeding up and slowing down during songs.
That must be hell and something that can ruin the whole darn I've never heard of this before. But I've not really messed around much with the neck bolts.
Changing the neck pitch slightly via the micro-tilt has made a noticeable difference in Search Titles Only. Working with Arpeggios, debating different approaches. Thread Tools. Join Date Apr Posts Hey guys, I was wondering in what different ways you approach your arpeggio work. G major triad over Gmaj7 or D major triad over Gmaj7.
It used to feel wrong to me - a bit like cheating or working in a non-musical fashion. I started working on major and minor triads, checking out the following patterns both up and down : … … 1 5 3 1 5 3 1 5 … 1 3 5 1 3 5 1 3 5 … Also I thought about working on incorporating approach notes half step below, half step above, both above and below, whole step half step below etc.
I was basically planning to check all of these out in 7 positions those that will fit the 7 positions of the major scale. Gee, in some cases the fingerings are far from being easy to play.. Some questions are on my mind: You could also work on the triad shapes that fit the 5 positions of the major scale or any other system. Of course some of the resulting positions for the tonal structure will be identical, but still it appears to be a bunch of possibilities.. Playing in position only appears to be rather limiting.
Is there any system to it? Cause working on all possible shifts seems to be an endless task! If at all, what patterns do you like to practice with arpeggios consisting of 4 notes? What are your general thoughts on patterns? Do you like to work on incorporating them into your playing specifically, or you do prefer to just wait for them to show up in your playing? Have you ever worked on creating melodies with 2 different arpeggios at the same time?
D major triad and E major triad over Ab7? The Jazz Guitar Chord Dictionary. Join Date Oct Posts 2, FWIW, here's what I have found to be helpful. I learned 7th chord patterns in 5 positions on the neck. Some of them were Chuck Wayne's fingerings I learned long ago and some are my own. It may make sense to find your own because you can accommodate your picking style in case of bottlenecks. I modify these to get other chord types.
I practice them by playing tunes using IRealPro for backing tracks. I set the tune for 13 repeats with a key change by a 4th every chorus. I will sometimes run the arps, with the notes in order, just to drill myself on them. More often, I simply try to use the chord tones to create melody. I don't restrict myself to chord tones, but I am aware of them.
All keys. The advantage of this approach is that I'm working directly on tunes and melody. I get harmonic diversity by being aware of intervals and, occasionally, by superimposing one set of chord tones over another.
The disadvantage of this approach is that it doesn't particularly build speed and it may be more harmonically limiting than other approaches.
Why this approach? Would I recommend it to others? I came upon it based largely on trying to remediate weaknesses. There's a point where you try to do more general exercises and maybe there's a point where you try to forge an individual style by constructing a program that makes sense for your own mix of goals and abilities.

You could get a lydian sound by raising the 4th. Or, you could play a C triad followed by a D triad. The latter approach may give your solos a more structured, less random, sound which you may like.
I'd suggest using that triad pair and, against 7th chords the root triad and the b5 triad e. C maj and Gb maj. Then, pick a simple tune and see if you can make music with them by going back and forth from one to the other may help to play C then Gb, then repeat but up an octave. Frankly, I can't. My sense of melody doesn't include this device, so I abandoned it for the most part.
But, others do well with it. I learned it from Jose Neto, a terrific player -- and he can make it sound great. Join Date May Posts 1, The Romans had a phrase in Latin that translates " It smells of the lamp ", somewhat derogatorily referring to written documents that appeared to have been overly wordsmithed overnight by the light of an oil lamp.
The modern version of this in jazz might be when someone says they can "hear the wheels turning" behind the music; for example when you hear a guitarist playing and feel like you recognize the method book they have been studying.
When guitarists get good, this may become a "meta-concern" about potential tarnishment of authenticity in their playing. To my ear, the bell-weather indicator for this is in the arpeggios.
It seems to me there is a safe zone when arpeggios are used deliberately as a means of sounding chords or clearly deliberately using arpeggios as the motif for a melodic line.
The tricky part is using them "without showing" within melodic structures, because there is the risk of melody being masked or overshadowed by arpeggio Anyone know I mean? Originally Posted by pauln.

The thing is that these user arpeggios have not been loaded with the voices - the arp button is on but the user arpeggio is empty! So I've tried to locate the missing arpeggios in EDM flash content and load them manually from USB, but again, there are no arpeggios to load into the flash module! Not a single one!
