GO TO: Andrew Wasson of Creative Guitar Studio answers a viewers question... Q: While researching guitar chord changes, I came across an idea called pedal tones. I'm having a hard time with this because even basic chord changes don't normally have a similar tone in them to keep as a pedal on top. I've read something about re-harmonizing to keep pedal tones involved, but all of this is a little over my head. I'm hoping that perhaps you could do an introduction lesson on this subject. Thanks! Donovan -- Vancouver, Canada A: Chord sequences can definitely be enriched with the use of pedal tones. And, as Donovan has already discovered, quite often, a selected tone for use as a pedal, may not exist in the chord tones of the basic triad or 7th chord progression. This is where we need to get more inventive with the use of things like either; extensions, or possibly even re-harmonization. For this lesson we'll begin with establishing a chord progression, and try various techniques for creating a few interesting pedal tone ideas. ____________________________________ Ted Greene's "Chord Chemistry" Book: ____________________________________ The complete lesson article for this video will be available on the Creative Guitar Studio website shortly.
