If you haven't already worked through the previous tutorials on this style I encourage you to do so. It will give you the knowledge and skills to better understand the lessons in this tutorial.
We are learning here to orchestrate on the guitar; to simultaneously play or suggest more than one part at a time. This style of playing is called playing chords using Drop 2 Voicings. This is because if you "drop" or avoid playing the second chord voice you can more clearly separate and hear the distance and distinguish between the bass note and the upper register notes of a chord.
This also makes it possible to make a moving bass line with the low notes and an upper voice motion with chord inversions!
In previous tutorials we only learned to move the bassline up an octave. This time we are going to cover the entire fretboard with basslines and chord inversions! We are are going to Drop 2 our way across the entire guitar!
In the video I demonstrate how this gets accomplished in one position and how it sounds compared to normal chord comping.
I find it quite easy (so far!) to navigate, and found the "where do I start" to be very helpful! I'm getting there!!
I LOVE the forum, too. I've never been one to use forums, but the GT forum is full of great people and helpful information at ALL levels! Congrats on a WONDERFUL site!!Good job!
