Today’s guitar Jam Session was our monthly Q&A session where Band members get a chance to get caught up, ask questions about the material covered in the previous sessions, and tie up loose ends before we move on to new material.
Here’s a sampling of some of the topics asked and answered in today’s session:
What’s the difference between a “riff” and a “lick”?
Slash chords: D/F#
D is the chord / The F# is the new bass note
Recommended non-slip guitar picks:
- DAVA – they have coating and texture
- Dunlop Jazz 3
Is there a method for choosing the Key to write a song or is it totally experimentation trying to find what sounds good?
Major chord vs 7th chord
4 notes in a 7th chord – it’s a jazzy sort of chord
Most popular harmonics on 12th, 7th, 5th frets
Be familiar with the part so you have a relaxed hand without tension
