I learned that music theory is only an collection of 'observations' of what the great composers, artists and players of the 17th to 20th century were doing.. they solved most of the problems of harmony and chordal progressions by trial and error by candlelight: !!! imagine if Bach had Propellerheads Reason or computer MIDI??) you can use music theory when you're composing.. but using it in improvisation, needs planning ahead.. unless you're say "John Coltrane" be even he planned out his "Giant Steps".. you can experiment and find interesting and unusual chord progressions too.. I like your approach Claus.. very inspiring..

All music theory is just one thing: The relation between notes

No worries. Theory has never been a priority in my music world. I do know a wee bit, but mostly I just play by sound, feel and emotion

Great stuff, Claus. A little bit of theory helps you get started. Well it done for me.

I had practiced my open and barre chords. Learned the notes on the 6th string, knew the basic pentatonic scale shape and had 3 small 3 note phrasings but used bends, vibratos, hammer on's and pull offs to make them sound semi ok lol… I had been mostly playing blues so I knew the 1, 4 & 5. I owned a looper and had been using that.

I had a jam session with a bunch of guitarists who had been playing 2+ years on and off. All had much more experience than me (playing 1 year), and had their chord transitions and progressions well honed. More camp fire style jammers though. A couple had been playing for at least 5 years.

Feeling quite intimidated by the others experience, and knowing my chord changes were sloppy and slow I went anyway.

I played along with the others, but kept pretty low key and everyone was super accommodating and actually opted to play easier songs with simple chords just for me.

Then during a break one of them asked me if I wanted to pick a song to play. I said well I've been playing blues so how about we try a progression in B. They looked at me surprised.

I kicked off but also put the looper to use and managed to get a clean loop. Found the B on the 6th string, minor pentatonic scale, and started to use my small phrasings over the loop. Always resolving on the root within the scale.

The group was blown away! They asked me how TF was I doing that and why it was always sounding good. I felt so stoked and proud 🙂

Using that little bit of theory, I was able to determine the key of most progressions / songs they wanted to play, and add small embellishments and mini solos and they were amazed…

For me being a logical thinker, theory has been huge for me… I get overwhelmed but as you say, i forget that and approach it when I feel I need it.

Sir awesome teaching

Deleventh says:

You must prepare yourself to go down the rabbit hole. Lots of memorization and then you have to be prepared to also weave the new sounds in to your playing or it will not make much sense.

The problem is…most people only learn the MAJOR scale..
then they get bogged down with musical terms JURGINS of the circle of 5th…
but it's just playing the same scale in 12 different pitch…..
via…..Mix with a LEADING TONE ( maj7) method
Will boys N gals…that's just 1 out of 10 …..7 notes scales

what if went like this ( ALL 12 notes WORK)
Aeo maj7
dor maj7
phry maj7
loc maj7
mix maj7

aeo #4 maj7
aeo b5 maj7
aeo b2 maj7

dor #4 maj7
dor b5 maj7
dor b2 maj7

mix b6 maj7

yes….there's Jurgins terms for those INTERVALS too
The Aeo #4, Maj7…is just the DOUBLE Harmonic min or Hungerian min or Batdeshiet crazy scale…..

example…if I use B Loc maj7..it's Ion #6, dor 35, phry, #4, lyd #3, mix #2 aeo #1…
That would be G mix #2 or the A# note..
That would be I can make the G #2, 5, b7 or G, 3, 5. b7, #9
in other words….G min7 or G7….
while still remaining in the KEY of C MAJOR/Amin…as the parent key.
That's how I'll play that G as G min or G min7…oki doke

or I can play the A Harmonic min b2…that would be the Bb note….ok???? Ok
or I can play A harmonic min b5 or #4….that would be the Eb/#4 note..
Im going to play G7 into C, Eb, G…..is it ok with you??? It's Okay with me 😛

Or I ma play the A min…Bb maj into the C min chord…C# dim. D min E7 into the
A min chord…..is that okay???…well, it's okay with me….

yes,,,,yes..I accidentaly made that up…lmao
BECUASE I KNOW MORE THAN ONE SCALE …..ok
Nah….Im just a musicailly TALENTED…I dunnn know what note goes where
i just wing it..use my ears…sounds Kick arss when I play it…dosnt it 😛
