DIATONIC METHENYISMS (Volume 1) - Diatonic Melodic Ornamentation in the Style of Pat Metheny

This publication is a continuation to my “Chromatic Methenyisms” books series, studies and etudes. However, instead of concentrating further on the use of chromatic melodic embellishments by the genius guitarist, here I seek to depict and explore in detail the unique and multi-colorful diatonic melodic vocabulary that is present in Metheny’s improvisatory style.

The accompanying video masterclass contains a detailed description of the articulation, phrasing and architecture of all Diatonic Methenyisms presented in this book.

Each example starts by introducing an original phrase that was extracted from an improvised passage by Metheny (labeled with the harmony over which the phrase was originally played) and it is then taken through an in-depth study all over the fretboard covering all diatonic permutations and transpositions, possible physical motions and placement within all modal positions of a given tonal center.  

I believe there are hundreds of different ways we can take these melodic lines and make them our own by using different approaches for their execution and articulation so I invite you to experiment with your own approach.

Keep in mind that once you have the different Diatonic Methenyisms presented here under your fingers and can comfortably execute them over the entire range of the instrument, you will be able to apply them over a wide range of different harmonic structures. You will also be able to use this type of phrasing over minor, major, dominant (regular and altered), half-diminished and fully diminished chords. I will be covering more examples of the application of this material over basic chord progressions in future publications.

All phrases and Diatonic Methenyisms presented in this book are explored within the key of C Major and so they will work over any one of the seven diatonic chords of such key.
