This is a 3 part collection of books which is used in the Fretboard Harmony 201 course. The first book covers the concepts of theory, the second is a collection of musical examples and the third is a practice routine to follow
This collection is the second part of a curriculum which offers training in the idiomatic way the guitar works in all genres – from classical to country to jazz. The primary goal of the curriculum is to become familiar with the rudimentary harmonic and melodic patterns used by the musicians we love and to unlock the mystery surrounding the recurrence of these patterns on the fretboard. We begin with fundamental musicianship training and expand that to the guitar. Toward the end of the course we explore artistic, logical ways to approach improvisation.
Topics explored include:
- Application of the Material from 101 to Minor Keys.
- Open Position and Pattern Scales, Transposition, Bass Lines, Triads, Chord Progressions, Pentatonic Scales, Voice Leading, Improvisation
- Diatonic Seventh Chords (minor 7ths, major 7ths, dominant 7ths) and their application
- Diminished, Suspended and Augmented Chords and their application
- Symmetrical Scales
These classes form a curriculum that will be valuable for guitarists at an intermediate to advanced level of any playing style. Reading standard notation is not required because this class approaches the music from a harmonic perspective as it relates to the fretboard.
