In this lesson I will quickly show you the basics of vocal harmony. I briefly talk about scale and inversions in this video, but if those concepts are new to you, you may want to study up on them to set a better music theory foundation. I have put a few more links to other related lessons, documents and worksheet to further explore how music works.
What does it mean when you see a chord that has a 2, 6, 13, or 9 #11 13? In this lesson we discussion what color is and how to add it to a chord. While I will be using the piano to demonstrate these chords, the principle applies to any instrument.
In this lesson you will learn how playing just a few common notes through a changing progression can add flavor and color. As you can hear from the demonstration, the common tones blend well with the rhythm guitar. While we demonstrated this on acoustic guitars, this works great on electrics. You can hear many of the common tones arpeggios being played through many of my records.
