This five chapter class explores the very useful and important 10th interval for a wide variety of applications. George Van Eps referred to it as the “Mighty 10th” and when the interval is explored in-depth, harmonically and melodically, you’ll see why. They are perfect for intros, endings, interludes and cadenzas. Once these patterns are internalized they can come out naturally in one’s improvising. Most importantly they are very fun to work with and play and sound full with a great deal of harmonic potential.
This class lays it all out for the guitarist with fingerings, standard notation and TAB and covers a wide variety of applications and harmonic situations. The 10ths are often overlapped to become larger chords and are used in both diatonic and more atonal settings. They are applied to two-five-one patterns, diminished patterns, augmented and much more. Contrary motion and counterpoint are common threads throughout the exercises and they will feel terrific on your left hand fingers helping a great deal with finger independence. Hybrid picking and fingerstyle technique will be greatly improved through the use of these exercises.
