1 Class 7 Guitar I, & II Slow Song Accessories Chromatic Scale Bass Pluck Strum More timing work (Maybe) Finish fingerpicking 1 st pattern. Some review and new songs and techniques

2 Names of the notes on the open strings. E A D G B E Below are the names of the notes on the open strings. These need to be memorized. From the lowest pitch to the highest pitch: E, A, D, G, B and E. Note that the 6 th string is called low E and the 1 st string is called high E. Below is where the open strings are written on the staff!

3 This week lets play this! Very slowly.

9 High Heel Sneakers Transpose to the key of A. It is now in the key of C. Write the new chords in the book. –C becomes A –F or F7 becomes D –G or G7 becomes E7. Guitar II students Capo at 5 th fret. –C becomes E –F or F7 becomes A –G or G7 becomes B7.

10

11 For Guitar II students!!! 1/8 th notes with a swing. If electric use delay for slap-back. Fingering Same pattern for all of this.

12

13 The Am and E chords 23 Am (A Minor) 1 23 E Major Notice that the finger pattern is exactly the same but on different strings. Practice changing from the Am to the E and back again, until the change is smooth! E Major Guitar II 7 th Fret Am (A Minor Guitar II) th Fret

14 Notice that the whole song is: 4/4 ||: G D | Am | G D | C : || Try to play the melody. It starts on the B 2 nd string open. Also Guitar II students apply the fingerpicking to this! Guitar I students can try the strum once the tune is learned.

15 Guitar II play the Melody!

16 Greensleeves Note: This song Is in ¾ time. The melody is in tablature and traditional notes. Again Guitar II play the melody.

17 These chords go for the whole song!

18 The Am to D gets 2 beats each

19 Guitar II Students Only.

21 Chromatic Scale. Remember the chromatic scale can easily be memorized by just remembering a couple of facts: 1. There are sharps and flats between every letter name except between E and F and between B and C, 2. There are enharmonic equivalents as follows: C# = Db, D# = Eb, F# = Gb, G# = Ab, and A# = Bb. Therefore the chromatic scale is as follows (starting on A): A, A#/Bb, B, C, C#/Db, D, D#/Eb, E, F, F#/Gb, G, G#/Ab, to A. From one note to the next is called a 1/2 step so from A to Bb is a 1/2 step. Two 1/2 steps make up a whole step so A to B is a whole step. Memorize this scale.

22 Finding notes on the guitar Finding the names of all of the notes on any fretted instrument. Start with the open string and just go one space clockwise (when Chromatic scale on a circle) for each fret (1/2 step). The 12th fret should be the same letter name as the open string. E A D G B E F#,Gb G F G#, Ab A A#, Bb B C C#, Db A

23 E A D G B E Now fill in this chart on a separate piece of paper – the 12 th fret should be the same as the open string. Turn it in as homework next week!!!

24 G D G B D G R 5 R 3 5 R G X C D F# A D F# R 3 5 R 3 D For Guitar II – Using CAGED and staying in one position. This is basically in 2 nd and 3 rd position. G do the E form, C do the A form and D do the C form. You now can play the following songs without moving more than 1 fret. Also listen to how nice the chords move from one to the other. Try this in other keys etc.

25 th fret G D G B D G R 5 R 3 5 R C X D D F# A D F# R 3 5 R 3 G For Guitar II – Using CAGED and staying in one position. 5 th to 8 th position G do the E form, C do the A form and D do the C form. You now can play the following songs without moving more than 1 fret. Also listen to how nice the chords move from one to the other. Try this in other keys etc. 7 th fret 5 th fret

26 The Key here is to first practice the following: 4/4||: G | C | G | D : ||

27

28 Time Of Your Life While the intermediates play this read pages 1-10 in the Guitar Reference.

29 G C add D sus More advanced chords to Time of Your Life. These are chords that each have a D and a G note on the first 2 strings. This is called a pedal point.

30 Pluck Strum To do this you will use your index finger on the 3 rd string, middle finger on the 2 nd string and ring finger on the first string. They will work together as one group, plucking the strings by slightly hooking under each string then bringing the fingers towards the palm of the hand. Each finger hits only the one string and not all of the strings. You will do bass – chord just like before but it will be bass – pluck etc. Try to just a few chords at first. Be sure to still do the rest stroke on the bass notes.

31 Here Comes The Sun Start by looking at video of Harrison and Simon. Watch their hands!!!!!

32 Look in the book Page 100. While this is close and will work – the chords do anyway. Intro is close enough.

33 We will start here. First 2 lines only have one issue that is the last 2 measures. Chords change in odd places. We will work on that one the first 5 measures are down. Look at counting on next page for that section.

34 Start with the chords below. Count 1 & 2 & 3 & 4 & 1 & 2 & 3 & 4 & This is the difficult part. Chords change in groups of 3 1/8 th notes.

35 Count 1 & 2 & 3 & 4 & 1 & 2 & 3 & 4 & This is the difficult part. Chords change in groups of 3 1/8 th notes.

36 Hold all fingers down as above and then play 3 rd string to 2 nd string to 1 st string. Then lift the 3 rd finger, play 3 rd string, 2 nd string then 1 st string, then lift index finger and play the 3 rd string, 2 nd string, 1 st string. Then put the 1 st finger down, play 3 rd string, 2 nd string, 1 st string. For the A7 part is just the scale coming down.

37 Next try pages 1 and 2. to the repeat. Repeat back to the 2 nd line.

38 One of 5 keys we will do this song in.

39 Guitar II D/F# (Means a D chord with an F# in the Bass T Either of these fingerings will work. I prefer the 2 nd one for me. Put this in on Amazing Grace as the 2 nd measure of D when D goes to a G chord in the next measure. This is very common when D is changing to G. For you theory buffs this is a D chord in 1 st inversion with the 3 rd in the bass. This leads to the D form of the moveable chord

40 The D7 Chord D D7 (Guitar II)

41 The C Major Chord When there is just a letter name it means major. C Major is usually written as just a C. On this chord do not hit the 6th string. Curving the fingers is very important on this chord. C (Guitar II) RT

42 Born To Be Wild From book page 36 Early example of power chords.

43 E 0 X X th fret. This is for Guitar II, III and IV and is the basic chord. For Guitar I play an E chord for E, E6 and E7. Some of you will note how close this is to Purple Haze as far as the progression goes. You can also just play an E on this. 3 This is the ultimate power chord. Formation is a power chord formation with the root on the 5 th string. This can all be moved to the 6 th string and then it would be an 6 th form of the power chord.

44 OK at the end use your 4 th finger for the notes on the 11 th and 12 th frets. While it is not easy at first it is playable. If you just cant do it then mute the 5 th string and only play the 6 th and 4 th strings. While it isnt as good it does work well. This is played where ever there is the E6 and E7 in the 2 nd measure pattern on the sheet music. For example, the intro and first 8 measures of the song.

45 E 0 X X th fret. 3 D X X X th fret. 3 5 th fret This is for the last line and a ½ for the Guitar II, III and IV students. This would be a good song for one of the Ensemble groups.

46 These chords go for the whole song!

47 Songs From Book Lay down Sally, pg 164 Hey Jude, (Will transpose to D) pg 102 It's So Easy, pg 125 Words of Love, pg 334 Memphis, pg 180 Rebel Rouser, pg 216

48 Dynamics p = piano or soft mf = mezzo forte or moderately loud f = forte or loud. Apply to the previous song Knockin on Heavens Door Play the first part p (soft and the 2 nd part f (loud). What works well is to do a crescendo on the last chord of the fist part (this would be to gradually get louder or go from p to f. Dynamics can make a tune really work. Try to apply them to other songs that you have learned

49 Knock, Knock, Knockin On Heavens Door Simple Melody and Chords

50

51 Start with learning the Chords Do in 1 st position then once that is mastered move to Barre chords. Once the chords are learned do the melody. You will need to figure it out. Hint is that the Chord Rules and the melody is mainly in the chords. As a group have each person play the chords and then the melody. Help each other out. The sum of the parts is greater than the whole.

52 Notes in the G chord are G, B and D D is D, F# and A Am7 are A, C, E and G C is C, E and G. The melody follows the notes in the chord for the most part.

53 G G G G th fret 3 rd fret Some other ways to play the G chord What you want to do is find out all of the notes in each of the chords. Once you have done that, map them to the guitar and try as many voicings and ways to play them as you can think of. You will be surprised at how many different ways you can play each chord. I have given you some for the G chord. It contains the notes G, B and D. The Am7 chord is A, C, E and G, the D chord is D, F# and A, and the C chord is C, E and G.

54 Words of Love In Book at 334 A I IV V song.

55 Start with the chords. Only 3 chords A, D and E Even though it is simple it is fun to do. Sometimes these easy songs have quite a bit to do. If singing the harmony will make this piece. Whole piece is: 4/4 ||: A | D E : || Timing on next page.

56

57 On beat 4 of the 2 nd measure that open E is played on the last 1/16 th note of the beat. You could also play the chord or just the first 2 strings of the chord. This must be played with an up stroke.

58

59 Again – What Rules? Yes the chord rules. This is particularly true when you have to solo without much in back of you. Trio with guitar bass drums etc. You could do a faux of this by just playing parts of the chord and most people wouldnt even know. Best of all it would sound good. Dont be fancy!

60 For next class Memorize the D, D7, G, A7, E7, A, C and Em chords Go over all of the songs played in class so far. Read pages 25, 28 and 29 in Guitar Reference. Listen to track 14 on the CD Work on the strums, particularly the Johnny Cash strum Review all the material. Go over the chromatic scale. Start to memorize it. Review all material covered so far. Introductions to Dont Be Cruel and to Wonderful Tonight. Guitar II work on fingerpicking review and on syncopated strum. Also do the hooks for the above songs.

61

62 The VII isnt used much with the exception of modern jazz. The 3 main chords are the I the IV and the V. After that the next two most Common are the II and the VI with the III chord used but less than the Rest. Knowing this can help you figure out songs. Also in some styles the chords Can be changed. In country music the II chord is usually a II7 so in the key of C it would be a D7. In jazz the III and the VI are often 7 chords.

63

64 Ear Training You need to hear chords. Types are first, there are 3 types of chords learned so far –Major –Minor –Dominant 7 th. Listen to the difference between each type. Try to hear each type. On a piece of paper write numbers 1 – 10. I will play each chord and write down what you think it is. I will do the following chords: A, Am and A7. We will do this a few times.

65 The Bm (B Minor) Chord 2 3 Bm (B Minor) Bm X X 0X For some of you that can already play use this form.

66 The B7 Chord 3 B B7 X 0X For Guitar II

67 From Book – Will Choose a couple. 8 Days a Week, (later tonight) page I Feel Fine, page 115 Secret Agent Man, page 234 Words of Love, page 334 You're No Good, page 342 It's So Easy, page 125 Memphis, page 180 Crocodile Rock, page 48 Sea of Love, page 235 Solitary Man, page 250

68 From the book Crocodile Rock to start. This is basically in the key of G, the bridge goes through the cycle of 5ths and starts on the 6 th degree (E, A, D), the first time the E is minor and 2 nd time it is major. Very cool. We will do the hook intro. Intro is I IV II V – Song goes I III IV V. Listen closely to this as it is very a common progression. Van Morrison uses it quite a bit.

69 There are 3 versions of this. First is like the book but with open strings it is a bit un-balanced. 2 nd one is using the G major scale in 2 nd position (E form) and is more balanced. 3 rd version is using the G major in a C form of CAGED. If you are playing electric guitar it is cool to put some compression on the guitar along with just a little distortion. Dont use too much distortion. If you have a guitar Synthesizer a sax patch (I like alto sax) will work great!!

70 I Feel Fine Also uses the Bm chord. Good song for Guitar I chords.

71 E 7 G7 (C7 at the 8 th Fret, D7 at 10 th Fret) C7 with D7 at the 5 th fret. RT Rt Chords for I Feel Fine Guitar I Play G for G7 and C for C Bm C at 3 rd fret D at 5 th ft. Rt

72 Start by Learning the chords There are only a couple of different fingerings. The G7, D7 and C7 can all be the same fingering with the E form on the 6 th string root. G Major is very similar with just one added finger. If you cant do the barre chords do the chords in 1 st position. Will still sound fine.

73 Song is in 4/4 time. I have included the entire arrangement for the Guitar II students who would like to try it. Guitar I just keep it as something you might want to do later. Better to do this from the book page 115. Note thought that the hooks and lines are better played as I have them in the following pages.

74

75 Start in 10 th position then move to 9 th position. Fingering This is based off of the D mixolydian mode. This pattern repeats for C7 but down 2 frets and for G7 at the 3 rd fret. Fingering stays the same for all 3. Other than the 12 fret 3 rd string and 9 th fret 3 rd string all the other notes are in the chord.

76

77

78 Solo Section Fingering 2 (Slide) 1 2 (Slide) 1 2 (Slide) Position Key to this is the slide. Use your 2 nd finger for the slides. This just takes a little time to master.

79

80

81 Work on the whole tune Start with the chords. Then do the hook – same thing but at different frets. Lastly, the solo. Put it all together.

82 Page 48 in book Notice the form. Intro then song. 3 rd ending does the intro as a fade out. For class we will play it 2 times and end on the first measure of the intro.

83 In Rock Fake Book I Feel Fine page Days a week page 72 Crocodile Rock page 48, Guitar II can try the melody of the instrumental part. Here Comes The Sun. Guitar II will do the basic picking on this later.

84 8 Days A Week

85 12 3 D X X 0 E/D X X 0 G/D X X A letter then a slash then a letter means: First letter is name of the chord. Slash indicates that the next letter is the bass of the chord. So E/D would be an E chord with a D note as the bass or lowest note. Guitar II use Intro in the book! The introduction to 8 Days a Week is: 4/4 ||: D | E/D | G/D | D : || Notice that the same fingering applies to many chords. Introduction and ending for 8 Days a Week.

86 Timbre (tonal) differences Notice the difference in sound when you play close to the bridge compared to over the sound hole on your guitar. The reason is that when you play over the bridge the overtones are sounding louder and the fundamental (note you play) are softer in volume. Overtones are the multiples of the fundamental tone. For example, if you played an A = 440 Hz. Then the overtones would be 880 (2X), 1320 (3X), 1760 (4X), 2200 (5X) etc. The closer you play to the bridge the louder those overtones sound and the softer the fundamental sounds. For 8 Days a week play over the sound hole until you get to the section starting with an A chord (bridge of the song) then play near the bridge, on the repeat go back to playing over the sound hole.

87 (Strum near the bridge of the guitar) Strum over the sound hole of the guitar.

93 Changing Strings You should change your strings on a regular basis. It is important that you have strings that stay in tune and sound good. When strings get old they do not stay in tune up the fingerboard. When strings get old they dont sound good. There are basically 3 types of strings. Ones for electric guitar, ones for steel string acoustic and nylon strings for classical guitars. The type of strings are geared to your guitar. You can not switch from nylon to steel or vice versa. You also should use acoustic guitar strings for acoustic guitar and electric guitar strings for electric guitar.

94 Changing Strings Do one string at a time. Start by removing the old string. Loosen the old string. If the guitar is a steel string you will need to pull the peg out using a string peg remover or side-winder (string changer). Once the old string is removed, clean under the string area. If it is classical you must tie the new string on at the bridge – you put the string through the hole and then do 2 to 3 winds around itself and hook the end at the bottom of the bridge. If steel string put the string end with the ball in the string hole in the bridge, then push the peg into the hole with the cutout area around the string. If it is an electric guitar you will need to run it through the tailpiece. Then put the run the other end through the tuning head. Wrap it around the opposite way and hook it. Then tighten the string. Bring it up to the pitch and then stretch the string a few times.

95 For next class The Bm and B7 major chords 8 Days A Week – With Introduction and with dynamics. Notes on the first strings. Work on the strum D DUDUDU. Review the right hand strums. You have done the following chords so far: –A, Am, A7, Bm, B7 C, D, D7, E, Em, E7, and G –Make sure you memorize those chords.

96 Correct Picking Hand Position. The right hand position is important in order to get not only a good tone but to play progressively more difficult pieces. If you are right handed the thumb needs to be in front of the other fingers (to the left). Have it ready to hit the lower pitched strings (4, 5 and 6). The fingers should be curved and touching each other. They should be ready to hit the following (index ready to hit the 3rd string, middle finger the 2nd string and ring finger the first string.

97 The Rest Stroke For the bass you should do the rest stroke. How it works is that when you hit a note with the thumb you will follow through and rest or stop on the next string. This gives you the fullest sound.

98 Pluck Strum To do this you will use your index finger on the 3 rd string, middle finger on the 2 nd string and ring finger on the first string. They will work together as one group, plucking the strings by slightly hooking under each string then bringing the fingers towards the palm of the hand. Each finger hits only the one string and not all of the strings. You will do bass – chord just like before but it will be bass – pluck etc. Try to just a few chords at first. Be sure to still do the rest stroke on the bass notes.

99 High Heel Sneakers Transpose to the key of A. It is now in the key of C. Write the new chords in the book.

100 Play Get Back in Book Using your book we will do Get Back. Guitar II students to do the blues backup. Review pages in the Guitar Reference.

101

102 First try clapping the rhythms. Review of some simple rhythm Now we will try to do these rhythms with a pick. When you are on a number then you will strum down. When on an & you will strum up. You hold the pick between the thumb and the index finger with only the very tip sticking out. Strum with your wrist movement. When you have 2 downs in a row you will still bring the hand up but by making a small circle going over the tops of the strings.

103 The Am and E chords 23 Am (A Minor) 1 23 E Major Notice that the finger pattern is exactly the same but on different strings. Practice changing from the Am to the E and back again, until the change is smooth! E Major Guitar II 7 th Fret Am (A Minor Guitar II) th Fret

104 For next class Memorize the D, D7, G, A7, E7, A, C, Bm, and Em chords Go over all of the songs played in class so far. Read pages 25, 28 and 29 in Guitar Reference. Listen to track 14 on the CD Work on the strums, particularly the Johnny Cash strum Review all the material. Go over the chromatic scale. Start to memorize it. Guitar II work on fingerpicking review and on syncopated strum. Also do the hooks for the above songs.
