Phrygian Dominant Lessons 21-26

 

Lesson 21:

This is another romp utilizing the Indian instrument slide I showed in an earlier lesson. The slides need to be really quick. Almost on the same beat as the fretted note.

It's played with single notes slowly, then faster with signle notes, then with the strumming technique slowly, then the strumming technique a little faster.

Lesson 22:

Ok, for this one we are going to leave the scale and play something out of a D half/whole step scale. This is a symmetrical scale, and has it's place in Middle-Eastern music. It uses the same types of feel and technique in a number of the past lessons.

It sounds a little Zeppelin-ish too.

The MP3 has it played slowly with single notes, then slowly with the strumming technique, then fast with the strumming techinique.

This one is real enjoyable.

Lesson #23

This one is using the same techniques we've been doing all along, but it utilizes the D Mixolydian mode. Kind of has a Cletic sound to it.

It's the ending to a song I wrote that I need to re-record and post.

The MP3 is played one time slowly with single notes, then slowly with the strumming technique, then fast with the strumming technique.
