Old Grimes

A Section Melody Breakdown

We're re-issuing one of Chris's most popular lessons with re-mastered video and updated loop points. From Chris: 

Hello! This week we’re carrying on with Old Grimes and getting into some single note playing. I’ll show you how I play the melody on the A part. We’ll review some of the basic techniques that can be used for learning a tune like this: identifying the melody using scale degrees, and using pick direction to inform your knowledge of a rhythmic phrase.

If this lesson is easy for you then you might try playing the melody while using your imagination to superimpose the shapes of the chords on the fingerboard at the same time. Notice how the physical shapes and notes of the melody interact with the chord shapes.
