  • When You Play Leads, Do You Know Every Note You PLay?

          I know the fretboard and can read music for the guitar and mandolin. So yeah.



          When I compose my own crap I do it all by ear and try to spare folks a lead, well most of the time.



          One thing I figured out a long time ago is, if you gonna play the guitar, know the fretboard cold





          Just say I wanted to work on a piece like this, which is a relativity simple classical piece, I will know all the notes and where to put my finga's on boith hands too. No issues with the bass line either.



          I actually hate tab, but it has it place, 4 sure.

              It's not really much of a revelation that you are as clueless with your music as you are with the other aspects of your life.

                the ones inbetween the whole notes are sharps of flats, depending what key you are in

                        Why students never want to invest in this is mind boggling to me. It's like living and not knowing and of the streets in your community and having to find everything by trial and error. It's flat out idiotic.

The more that laws and regulations are given prominence, the more thieves and robbers there will be."

                              I know the names of the notes. I know the relationship to the root key and to the chord which is occurring in the song that that particular moment. I was doing this before I learned chord construction. After learning for construction it opened it up a little more.



                              After endless jamming, thousands of gigs and learning thousands of songs, I think I know modes and scales or at least most of them. I just think in my mind that certain string of notes would be cool here. And all of the strings of notes that I know I'm sure have names but what difference does it make if you know what they are called? More important, way more important,... How they are going to sound.



                              Articulation and phrasing are the most important things lead guitar playing. Articulation means quite a few things. Such as dynamics, vibrato ect. Phrasing is an art, playing a few notes that make a statement then answering them with a few more notes, you know when you hear it.



                              I have developed a form of phrasing I call abbreviated phrasing. I will share it with you in our next lesson.
