The basic rhythm riff is a straight eighth rhythm. The chords we will use are actually diads; two note groupings. We will play C5 & C6 for the I chord. Then, we will play a lead fill, a "lick", that combines two notes each time making another diad, or doublestop, but in a higher register. This is a very common lick based on a simply harmonization of the major scale. The overall form we will use is the I-IV-V 12 bar blues. So, we'll take the same riff and lick and move it around the fretboard to play the chord changes.
The main idea we are exploring in this tutorial is learning the mechanics of changing from strumming chords to doublestop diad lead lines. Switching between the two and remaining in time is the how you can take your playing to the next level.
I find it quite easy (so far!) to navigate, and found the "where do I start" to be very helpful! I'm getting there!!
I LOVE the forum, too. I've never been one to use forums, but the GT forum is full of great people and helpful information at ALL levels! Congrats on a WONDERFUL site!!Good job!
