A Couple Reminders 

Practice Tips 

We have pulled 3 relevant practice tips and ideas to help you with your technique and understanding of emuso/Studio.   Each tip will have a short description and a video demonstrating what you need to do.  Please enjoy all three!  

  1. How to Transpose Any Arbitrary Shape.  Emuso comes with a handy tool for selecting some note pattern from a scale and then transposing that pattern by some interval from a 2nd to a 7th.  This is great for chord exploration (as well as exploring linear harmony).    This video uses the half-whole scale to demonstrate.   This is one of a series of tips and tricks for using emuso

2.  Finding the Same Note…Fast Using visualization based on the 3-semitone shape (3 frets apart on same string) that most guitarists know from the minor pentatonic scale, the same note can be found on an adjacent string by adding a small shift horizontally, and then crossing strings.  Very simple to apply, and very useful. 

Finding the Same Note....Fast!

3.  Diminished Responsibility.  Here is a taster on using arpeggios from diminished triads blended with minor pentatonic notes, for a modern sound that can work great in many genres, including blues, rock, metal, jazz. I expect you to know the A minor pentatonic, and diminished triads.    This video creates an A Dorian flavor, and shows where to locate these triads (which aren’t found in A Dorian).

Support Us! 

According to UK music charity Music-for-All.org not enough people in the UK are fortunate enough to have access to musical instruments or ways to help them to learn and discover.  So, we donated 1,000 emuso/Studio licenses to the charity, to support their efforts in making music education and instruments and events freely available.  

And now, as we are gaining a voice and momentum in today’s noisy and overwhelmed digital market, we need your help and support to further make a difference.  Please help us make people aware they can rapidly and simply notch up their musical skills with emuso without paying a fortune, or dedicating large chunks of time in doing so.  So please spread the word to your social media. 

Plus we would love to hear from you!    Tell us what you like or love or dislike about emuso.  Tell us how you are using emuso for learning, practicing or exploring music and even creating with it.  Just log in and add a comment to our blog.  Or how about a short YouTube video about this?  Include a link in your blog comment.
