harmonic minor scale

  1. Pickups & wiring
    I was going through a box of misc stuff and found a HS-3 a friend gave me years ago and I never got around to using. I was thinkin bout putting in the bridge of my Strat Plus Deluxe for a go. I know that YJM uses one. That fact alone makes me want to toss it. Any idea how it will sound? The Plus...

    Hello! Well remember those cool days when you realised you can play B Harmonic Minor over E Harmonic Minor?? Look no further because the uber cool Harmonic Minor scale has more to offer us still.. For too long people only used it sound like Bach or Yngwie without understanding why back in the...

    The guide is coming along nicely. The modal section is almost done, and I'll start posting the sections here as they're finished. Eventually, I'll cover intervals, chord/scale construction etc. I'm not starting the guide with modes, I'm just writing it first because it's easier for me.

    Without typing 5,000 words, how does this progression work? If you're in Amin, then play a Gmaj, then a Dmin, the E should also be a minor, right? Well, there's a song I'm listening to that goes to E Major and you think it'd be a minor since A Minor is the key. I swear, I'm never going to...

    Other than the blues scale, I really love Lydian and Phrygian dominant. They're great! :) Alwin

    I am just beginning to learn about scales and modes, and was wondering if anyone had some helpful advice on how to approach this. I've bought a lot of books, but not exactly sure where to begin other than starting with the major scale. I have bought the Guitar Fretboard Workbook which seems to...

    Every 3 to 5 years I seem to reach a junction in my playing, perhaps you do too ? That time has come around again for me. I've spent the past few years looking at the techniques of Vai, Gilbert, Malmsteen etc and spent a lot of time feeling frustrated. Whilst I have the greatest respect for...

    Just wanted to ask if anyone here in the forum has found themselves almost completely bored to death of shred guitar? Do you ever find yourself putting on your Vai, Satch, Dream Theater or other artists CD's in your players and after a few minutes just bored? The first time I felt that way was...

    Well, here's my take on a backing someone asked me to play over.... This is the first clip since my version of Vai's FOR THE LOVE OF GOD, that I did in May, prior to my hand surgery. The surgery helped, but still, the issue resides in my spine. I just had an epidural steriod injection (Thurs...

    By popular demand (okay, two people) I have decided to take this post of mine from the polls section (Paul Gilbert Vs Yngwie Malmsteen) and turn it into a new topic/thread. It really no longer has anything to do with polls but everything to do with the way a famous guitarist is perceived, both...

    Two non ibanez players so it wouldn't be one sided. I like stump although I think IMO copied malmsteen a bit. I like Stump's tone better ;)

    Ok, this recording and others that will be in this thread are 5 and more months old. So, ya, you can consider them old. They were played with a bad GRX Ibanez with a bad set of pickups and a bad volume knob and also only a trem, no floyd. The processor used is DigiTech RP10 and the background is...

    I have this problem where by being lazy and such, pick up the guitar, and do the same old thing every single time - minor pentatonic this and fast alternate that, bit of a song, some modal noodling. I can't seem to shake the habit! I feel as though I can play quite well (after doing it so long)...

    Sorry if this has been covered before, but I would like some opinions. I'll be getting my tax returns soon, so I plan on buying a harmonizer. I tried the boss and digitech pedals, and they sounded like pure garbage. So, it has come down to a Lexicon mpx unit, a G major, a Digitech dhp55, or an...

    My attempt at Gary Moore's greatest song. I know the singing?? is no good, listen to the guitar parts. It tried to capture his incredible souldful playing. There's no one like Gary.... http://www.soundclick.com/dannymcgee

    Well i caught the Yngwie bug, i used to hate listening to his songs but i bought a compilation cd of his songs and i haven't stopped listening to it. Is there a good website that shows some of his techniques and how he uses them within his playing?
