An interval’s name specifies the number of scale tones it includes; for example, the adjacent notes C and D form a second, C and E form a third (C-D-E), and so on. </p> <p>Any two notes can form an interval, but some are more useful than others. Thirds in particular are real workhorses, frequently used by guitarist, R&amp;B, rock, country and blues.</p> <p>To see how diatonic (within the scale) thirds work, play a C major from the second string’s first-fret C p to the 13th-fret octave (Figure 1a). Next, play the C scale from the open E string (the third scale step) up to the 12th fret (Figure 1b). Combine the two scale patterns, and you get a C major scale harmonized in diatonic thirds (Figure 1c). Play the pattern up and down the neck until you can move from one interval to the next accurately and without hesitation.</p> <p><img src="/files/imce-images/Basic%20Training%20-%20The%20Power%20of%20Three1.jpg" width="620" height="102" align="left" style="padding:10px 20px 10px 0;" alt="Basic Training - The Power of Three1.jpg" /><br /> <iframe width="100%" height="166" scrolling="no" frameborder="no" src="https://w.soundcloud.com/player/?url=https%3A//api.soundcloud.com/tracks/117397537"></iframe><br /> <iframe width="100%" height="166" scrolling="no" frameborder="no" src="https://w.soundcloud.com/player/?url=https%3A//api.soundcloud.com/tracks/114292275"></iframe><br /> <iframe width="100%" height="166" scrolling="no" frameborder="no" src="https://w.soundcloud.com/player/?url=https%3A//api.soundcloud.com/tracks/117397705"></iframe></p> <p>There is no finer example of diatonic thirds in action than the Spanish-tinged guitar fills played by the late, great Grady Martin in Marty Robbins’ cowboy masterpiece, “El Paso.” The rhythm pattern of “El Paso” is a waltz, which is based on a meter of three beats per bar.</p> <p>The guitar accompaniment for a waltz is typically a “boom-chick-chick” pattern – a bass note followed by two chord strums (Figure 2). The first beat of each bar is accented, lending the meter a loping triplet feel (one-and-uh two-and-uh, etc.).</p> <p><img src="/files/imce-images/Basic%20Training%20-%20The%20Power%20of%20Three2.jpg" width="620" height="263" align="left" style="padding:10px 20px 10px 0;" alt="Basic Training - The Power of Three2.jpg" /><br /> <iframe width="100%" height="166" scrolling="no" frameborder="no" src="https://w.soundcloud.com/player/?url=https%3A//api.soundcloud.com/tracks/114292250"></iframe></p> <p>The verse’s three chords – C, Dm and G7 – all belong to the key of C, so we can use the same set of intervals throughout. Figure 3a and 3b are third-based melodies in the style of “El Paso.” On the final note of the second example, tremolo picking – rapidly alternating pickstrokes – adds some stylistic flavor.</p> <p><img src="/files/imce-images/Basic%20Training%20-%20The%20Power%20of%20Three3a.jpg" width="620" height="167" align="left" style="padding:10px 20px 10px 0;" alt="Basic Training - The Power of Three3a.jpg" /><br /> <iframe width="100%" height="166" scrolling="no" frameborder="no" src="https://w.soundcloud.com/player/?url=https%3A//api.soundcloud.com/tracks/114292232"></iframe></p> <p><img src="/files/imce-images/Basic%20Training%20-%20The%20Power%20of%20Three3b.jpg" width="620" height="269" align="left" style="padding:10px 20px 10px 0;" alt="Basic Training - The Power of Three3b.jpg" /><br /> <iframe width="100%" height="166" scrolling="no" frameborder="no" src="https://w.soundcloud.com/player/?url=https%3A//api.soundcloud.com/tracks/114292221"></iframe></p> <p>Martin played thirds in “El Paso” to create a Mexican vibe, but the interval is highly adaptable to any style or scale, including major, minor and modal. For instance, Lonnie Johnson often worked thirds into his sophisticated blues solos back in the 1920’s and thirties, while Chuck Berry’s entire style – and by extension, that of 90% of early rock players – is based on his use of thirds. Another big thirds man is John Fogerty – just listen to “Fortune Son,” “Lodi” and “Proud Mary,” among other Credence classics.</p> http://www.guitarworld.com/acoustic-nation-lesson-power-thirds#comments Acoustic Nation acoustic nation Intervals News Lessons Mon, 28 Oct 2013 03:32:39 +0000 Keith Wyatt 19582 at http://www.guitarworld.com Exclusive: Intervals Premiere "Epiphany" Music Video http://www.guitarworld.com/exclusive-intervals-premiere-epiphany-music-video <!--paging_filter--><p>Last October, Toronto's Intervals released <em>In Time</em>, an EP packed of their intense brand of instrumental prog-metal.</p> <p>Today, GuitarWorld.com presents the exclusive premiere of the band's new music video for "Epiphany," a track from <em>In Time</em>.

InTune Guitar Picks</span> <p>"We've been getting our own picks made by the folks at InTune GP and they rule! I use their jazz style picks and they're just a little bit bigger than your average Jazz III. They feel great and they're very durable."</p></div> <div style="padding:10px;background:#eeeeee;margin:10px 0;"> <span style="font-size:18px;font-weight:bold;">4. Bareknuckle/Dimarzio Pickups</span> <p>"I've been using a variety of pickups over the last year, and I've found that I'm very at home with a few things from both of these companies. Bareknuckle seems to offer a flavor to suit any style of guitar and playing. A few favorites would be the Nailbomb, Painkiller, and Aftermath bridge pickups and I'm a huge fan of the Coldsweat as a neck pickup. From Dimarzio, the Crunch Lab and Liquifire is always a solid combination that sounds good in almost any guitar!"</p> <p><iframe width="600" height="450" src="http://www.youtube-nocookie.com/embed/UGMWLKdXo6w" frameborder="0" allowfullscreen></iframe> </p></div> <div style="padding:10px;background:#eeeeee;margin:10px 0;"> <span style="font-size:18px;font-weight:bold;">3. Ernie Ball Music Man JPX 7</span> <p>"I've always adored EBMM guitars. I've had an original JP6 in Mystic Dream for a few years and it's one of my favorite guitars. I've been playing a JPX 7 for the last few months and I'm absolutely blown away by this guitar. Everything from the chambered body, right down to the 5 way switch. Sounds absolutely massive and it's super versatile!"</p> <p><img src="/files/imce-images/MusicManJPX7.jpg" width="600" /></p> </div> <div style="padding:10px;background:#eeeeee;margin:10px 0;"> <span style="font-size:18px;font-weight:bold;">2. EndurNeck Profile from .strandberg* guitars</span> <p>"I've recently had the pleasure of trying Ola Strandberg's new EndurNeck profile. It's incredibly difficult to describe, but I feel like every guitar player should look into it and have the opportunity to try it. It's essentially a neck profile with 3 distinct flat surfaces that always keeps the thumb and the hand postured perfectly. I have a guitar featuring this profile on order. I can't wait to own this design!"</p></div> <div style="padding:10px;background:#eeeeee;margin:10px 0;"> <span style="font-size:18px;font-weight:bold;">1. Fractal Audio Axe Fx II</span> <p>"There's nothing to say about this unit other than it's made my life so much more simple. I'm obsessed with my Axe Fx.
