Tonal Center Modulation – by Mike Overly

February 4, 2016

PitchTonal Center may be defined as: the scale from which the letters and scale degree tone numbers of the harmony originate. Modulation simply means: to change. The tonal center may be any type of scale. For example: major, natural minor, whole tone, etc. In this lesson you will learn to identify the tonal center scale by just knowing the harmony symbol.

Harmony Rhythm’s Fatal Flaw Part 1 – by Mike Overly

December 10, 2015

slashJust as notes are the rhythm symbol of melody, harmony marks are the rhythm symbol of harmony. Unfortunately, most traditional guitar and bass methods use a meter slash as the rhythm symbol of harmony. This is a fatal flaw. The only purpose of a meter slash is to make a beat visible, they do not help us in knowing what rhythm to play on that beat. For that to be known, harmony marks are needed!

Harmony Numerics – by Mike Overly

July 30, 2015

Guitar HarmonicsIn this lesson, the first five harmonics in the harmonic series are presented. These five harmonics are then shown as scale degree tone numbers: 1, 8, 12, 15, and 17.

These five tone numbers are then converted to their 1st octave tone numbers: 1, 3, 5. Tone number 8 of the second octave is also included. Then, these four tone numbers are added to harmony numerals which creates four intervals: Unison, Octave, Perfect 5th and Major 3rd. An interval is harmony of two sounds.

Finally, these intervals are illustrated on the guitar fretboard. However, it should be noted that these intervals have the same pattern on a 4, 5 or 6 string bass.
