  4. 4. JohnE. Lawrence JohnE. Lawrence,a life long residentof Ypsilanti is one guitarists.

  5. 5. Learning the Technique PlayingBASSLINES and CHORDS Simultaneously of 1) The bassline is played primarily on the 5th and 6th strings. You will usethe 3rd and 4th stringsoccasionally, to emulatethe bassguitar the bassline shouldsoundas but low as possible. /) The bassnotes are played on the downbeat and the chords on the up beat. , 3) The chord is played after every other bassnote. This gives the chords a separaterhythm from the bass line. It also gives the illusion of a bassand rhythm guitar playing simultaneously. 4) It is not alwaysnecessary play a full chord employing all six strings;sometimesa two or three-stringchord to will do. 5) The bassline is played with the thumb insteadof with a guitar pick. Using the thumb makesthe tone darker and smoother.The strumming of the chords is done with the fingers. Constructing Walking BassSolos Root to the 5th BassLine Therootand5threferstothe firstandfifth noteof themajorscale basedon thechordyouareplaying.Forexample, if you play a D major 7th chord, you can constructa bassline using the first and the fifth note of a D major scale. Example: Major scale with the root of the chord on the 6th string r.ot+ffi roor+ffi ffi ,,offim ffi ,,nfu Major scale with the root of the chord on the 5th string rTrflt root-.{'Oi mfn root-bO | | | | | | | n-rfit rFn-F-] rIffi t-ffil-t ,*tfIT-I ,*.EffiE In order to simulate a bassguitar sound, play the bassline on the 6th and 5th strings. Given the above scale pattern,we must take the fifth scaletone (as shown in the 4th string) down an octave and play it on the sixth string: Root on the 5th string root ,rn / 5th down an octave 4

  12. 12. Whatis a II-V-I ChordProgression? The II-V-I chord progressionis widely usedin jazz. If you masterthe constructionof basslines over a II-VIprogression you will be ableto spontaneously createbass linesover jazzstandards examiningthechordchanges. by So, what is a II-V-I progression? Let's look at a C major scale.The C major scaleis made up of eight notes that are spacedeither a whole-step orahalf-stepapart.FromCtoDisawholestep,fromDtoEisawholestep,fromEtoFisahalfstep,fromFto G is a whole step, from G to A is a whole step, from A to B is a whole step and from B to C is a half. Example C Major Scale: half step ':l'""i" ':lfJ"$s :lJJ" The distancefrom one note to another is called an interval. The distancefrom the first note of the major scale to the secondnote is an interval of a major second,from the 1st to the 3rd is a major 3rd interval, from the 1st to the 4th is a perfect 4th, from the lst to the 5th is a perfect 5th, from the lst to the 6th is a major 6th, from the lst to the 7th is a major 7th, and from the lst to the 8th is the interval of a perfect octave. Example The Scale Intervals: major major 3rd perfecl 4th *j,nff,T,i" T,fl"frTTi 1l
  13. 13. When the lst noteof the C major scaleis playedalongwith the 3rd, 5th, and7th, it forms aCmajTchord.Since this chord usesthe lst note of the C major scale as its root, it is referred to as the I chord. Therefore the I chord in the key of C is C major 7. CmajT Maior 7th -- Perfect stn-].F Maior 3rd -+ Root I Basedon the whole-step/tralf-step relationships within the C major or "model" scales, can now proceedto we the seconddegreeof the scale(D) stacking its respective3rd, 5th, and 7th intervals to build the next chord - D minor 7. As this chord is constructedwith the secondnote of the C major scale serving as its root, it is referred to as the II chord. If we continue to stack th intervals in the sameway on each note of the C major scale,we will get a different chord for eachscaledegree.With eachchord having a correspondingnumber for every chord name.This holds true in all keys. The I chord is major, the II is minor, the III chord is minor, the IV chord is major, the V chord is dominant, the VI is minor, and the VII chord is a 7b5 or a half diminished. This can also be written as VII.. Example: The 7th chords basedon each degreeof the C major scale. A II-V-I chord progression the key of C consistsof: DminT-G7-Cmaj7 in Here is a list of II-V-I chord progressions all twelve major keys: in il C F Bb Eb Ab Db V AminT GminT CminT FminT BhminT EbminT G7 C7 I CmajT FmajT w BbmajT Bb7 EbmajT Eb7 AbmajT Ab7 DbmajT I Gb B E A D G I AbminT DbminT GbminT BminT EminT AminT V Db7 Gb7 87 E7 A7 D7 I GbmajT BmajT EmajT AmajT DmajT GmajT Note: The seventhof the chords in the II-V-I progressions understood mean IJ7-V7-I. are to ln this book, I have written all of the II-V-I exercisesin the key of G, but it would be very beneficial to learn the IIV-I exercises all twelve kevs. in t2
  14. 14. Scales a II-V-I Progression for There aretwo ways to resolvedominant7th chords.The dominant7th that resolvesto the I chord, suchas the kind you will find in a II-V7-I progression. The other is the dominant7th that doesnot resolveto the I chord directly, as in a blues progression. When playing over a dominant 7th chord in a ii-V-I progression, the minor scale. use Example: Am7 I D7 Gmaj7 I V I For the Am7, play notes from the A minor scale.For the D7, play notes from the D minor scale.And for the Gmaj7, play notesfrom the MAJOR WALK. The Major Walk The MAJOR WALK consists the lst noteof a major scaleto the 3rd thenmoveschromatically the 5th note. of to The EXTENDED MAJOR WALK continuesto the 6th note of the major scaleand moveschromatically to the 8th note. Example: aa 3fr. r a a aa ao Major walk extended Major walk t3
