Miniseries #002, Playing By Ear VI
Here is an old Gospel classic. I mentioned in the last post that you can narrow your choice of melody notes out through the use of scales. You can also narrow what the melody notes may be by the use of chords. In alot of Bluegrass tunes and songs, you can find the melody notes in the 4th, 3rd, and 2nd string formations we went over in previous lessons. You can also narrow your probable choices down even further by knowing where the relative minors are for the three basic postions. This has also been covered in previous lessons, so you may want to refresh yourselves if that term isn't familiar to you.
Keep on pickin
