MODAL X-ING (3 Note Harmonic Fractals) Pivot Note Harmonic Workout + backing track
In this harmonic study I will be illustrating some of my favorite ways to practice the material presented in my MODAL X-ING (3 Note Harmonic Fractals) book through a series of modal exercises that not only help the assimilation of the concepts and ideas into our playing styles but also work extremely well for left hand finger independence, strength and coordination.
All the following exercises work on the concept of a “Pivot Note” - a note that is common between two different voicings/harmonic fractals. As we execute the exercises we also want to play close attention to such “Pivot Notes” as physically we need to keep the finger that is responsible for playing the note on the fretboard (sustaining the note) as the other two voices rotate around it to form the new harmony.
This creates all sorts of technical challenges and great practice rudiments that will serve in the development of a precise, accurate and smooth chordal technique.
All exercises are presented in they key of G Major and all 3 note harmonic fractals can be used to suggest any diatonic chord of such tonality. The strongest candidates are always the ii-7, IVmaj7(#11), V7sus4, and vi-7 chords.
