Miniseries #010: Reno Re-Visited 03
Here are some more Linear concepts in this video. In this video, we are going to play the F major scale on one string. We are also going to harmonize the F major scale using double stops (two note chords).
Lets look at the 4th string position F chord. To start this harmonization,lets take the 1 and 3 out of the Fmaj scale. Notice it is part of the 4th string positon F chord. Now, with the modes in mind, lets continue. I would like you to look at the tab entitled "F major scale and its modes". Now look at the second measure, which is the second mode. Play the first note and the third note. You now have the second double stop harmonization. Go to the third measure/third mode, do the same thing, and you have the third double stop. So, you can see how this works. You can do the same for all the rest. That is where some of these ideas are coming from. You can also form double stops with any other two notes out of the scale, as long as you use this same approach.
