Guitar Basics,
The Minor 7 Flat 5 Arpeggio.
It's time for
the fourth of these different arpeggios.
This fourth one is called Minor 7,
Flat 5 and the same thing.
[MUSIC]
You have the root.
You have the 3rd.
[MUSIC].
You have the flat 5.
[MUSIC].
This time instead of.
So we have the minor
3rd instead of the 3rd.
We have B flat instead of B and
we have D flat instead of D.
[MUSIC].
And then we have the minor 7th.
[MUSIC].
So the arpeggio will be G,
B flat, D flat, F, G,
B flat, E flat F, and G.
So.
[MUSIC]
Like that.
One more time.
So practice it like this in, in the tempo.
That goes for the other arpeggios as well.
[MUSIC]
Okay.
Now, next position.
Starting on the minor 3rd on B flat.
[MUSIC].
B flat.
[MUSIC].
G flat.
[MUSIC]
F, G, B flat.
[MUSIC]
D flat.
[MUSIC]
F, G, B flat.
[MUSIC]
Turning back.
[MUSIC].
G, F, D flat, D flat, G,
F, D flat, B flat.
So.
[MUSIC]
So first one, you practice like this.
[MUSIC]
Two, three, four.
Next one, maybe like this.
[MUSIC]
And so on.
Also try to do them like I've
been doing them on one string.
This will be more.
[MUSIC]
This is a tough one to visualize it,
do like this.
[MUSIC].
So if you have these minor
3rd intervals and then.
[MUSIC]
Try on the G string.
[MUSIC]
On this string.
[MUSIC]
F, G like this on the first string.
[MUSIC]
But back to the inversions once again.
The 3rd inversion would be starting
on the 5th of G minor 7 flat 5.
[MUSIC].
So we start here on D flat.
So we have D flat, F, G,
B flat, G flat, F, G, B,
B flat, E flat, F, D flat.
And we, we, we can stop here
on this one and go back, so.
[MUSIC]
Like this.
[MUSIC].
D flat, F, G, B flat, D flat,
F, G, B flat, G flat, B flat,
G, F, E flat, B flat G, F, D flat.
If this is difficult for you, this big
stretch here if you have smaller hands,
don't like to this,
you can finger it like this.
[MUSIC]
Instead.
So D flat, F, G, F, B flat, D flat, F,
G, B flat, D flat, then back.
[MUSIC]
This is a nice one.
[MUSIC].
The fourth inversion of G minor 7
flat 5 would be starting on F.
7th, or minor 7.
[MUSIC]
F, G, B flat,
E flat, F, G, B flat,
E flat, F, D flat,
B flat, G, F, D flat,
B flat, G, F.
[MUSIC]
It's
a good way of practicing
like that first one.
[MUSIC]
Two, three, four, next one.
[MUSIC]
Next one.
[MUSIC]
If
you use that fingering, and the last one.
[MUSIC]
Like that.
Then you cover the whole neck,
then you can start playing more freely,
walking in between these scales.
[MUSIC].
And let me just mention that the G
minor 7 flat 5 is the same as,
is an inversion of B flat minor 6.
We'll speak more about this in the gypsy
jazz block and in the jazz block.
All right and see you at the next block.
The next block would be guitar tricks and
techniques, so stay tuned.
Thank you.
[MUSIC]
