A Couple Reminders
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!
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.
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).
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.
