Totally Guitars Weekly Wrap Up September 13th, 2019
Modes, modes, modes… Great additions on the Forum this week about modes, which got me into doing a bit of an improv in D, playing through 4 different modes with D as the tonic. These are referred to as parallel rather than relative, but hopefully the short explanation will help keep the differences clear. This was partly inspired by one of this week’s new lessons, The Low Spark Of High Heeled Boys, which I got to because of a recent request on the Forum.
The other new lesson this week were Stevie Wonder’s My Cherie Amour and Sailing by Christopher Cross. The latter being done in Open D and featuring a bunch of unusual sounding chords, but like many open tuning songs, not particularly hard to play.
The really big news this week though was that TG is moving on from flash based video into a player that should make everybody’s viewing world better, as long as you are using Firefox or Chrome. This is likely to expand to a few others in the near future but for now please try our stuff on one of those two and let us know how it goes for you.
We are getting down to the last couple weeks before IGC and would be happy to add a few more folks to the list if you are on the fence at all. In any case I am really looking forward to working individually with everybody there on anything they want to improve on.
Think about joining us if you can get a little time off…
