Re: Fretpick

my basic explanation would be changing keys while using chords that all share the same root. for example, Am7 ----> Amaj7. the root, A, remains the same but the minor 3rd of the first chord is raised to a major 3rd on the second chord. this example would actually just be showing the parallel major of the original minor key.

this may help, but if not, oh well because i'm a slow typer and i don't feel thinking anymore hahahaha

Re: Fretpick

"Pitch Axis" Theory by Joe Satriani

The principle is that any number of harmonic settings can be linked by the same tonal center. If you're in C major (C D E F G A B C ) for, say, four bars and in C minor (C, D, E flat, F, G, A flat, B flat) for the next four: the major and minor keys share the same tonic, C and this note is a center. It's a pivot on which you shift harmonies. You could then take four bars in C Phrygian (C, D flat, E flat, F, G, A flat, B flat), and then four in C Mixolydian (C D E F G A B flat).

Thus, one pitch provides an axis point for the scales and chords of variety of harmonic situations.

Let's look at Pich Axis in action.

Ex.1 "Satch Boogie" (Bridge) - "Surfing With The Alien".

Chords in order of appearance

1. __5__8__10__5__6__7__8__9__7__4__10___9___9_
2. __5__10__8__5__6__7__8__9__6__6__10__10__10_
3. __8__11_10__7__8__9_10_11__7__9__12__13__12_
4. ____________________________________________
5. __Open A in every chord_______________________
6. ____________________________________________

The chords progression is: A5(sharp 11) => A(dim) => Dm add4/A => Asus4 => B(flat)sus4/A => Bsus4/A => Csus4/A => Amaj7(add6) => Dm6/A => E(flat9)/A => A7sus4 => Amaj7 => A7

In original tablature Joe plays this progression with taps, pulls and hammers exclusively on the 5th open string. And it looks like this...

Ex.2 "Satch Boogie" (Tapping Riff)


A5(sharp11)

1. _____________________________________________
2. _____________________________________________
3. _____________________________________________
4. _____________________________________________
5. _12__7__6__0__6__7_____12__7___6___0___6___7_
6. T P P P H H



T - Tap; P - Pull; H - Hammer

Thanks for all your help.

Re: Fretpick

Anyone else know what other things I could do. Say chord lines?
