Watch the Weekly Workout #24 online guitar lesson by Chris Buono from Guitar Gym Weekly Workouts: Vol. 3
This week our Weekly Workout journey revisits a Part 1 & 2 concept. This approach has not been seen since the very beginning of Weekly Workouts. What better time than a chance to check out the elusive, the infamous, the world famous: 7-Tone?!
7-Tone is an all-encompassing methodology created by my former teacher/current mentor/forever friend and bassist Gerald Carboy
. After completing 7-Tone in 1993, Gerry's final words on the matter were, "Now you have to teach it." That's exactly what I've been doing for the last 24 years. Not only have I shared this method with students from all over the world, but I've developed the program even further adding my own Melodic Minor 7-Tone as well as expanding the Diatonic and Pentatonic 5-Tone programs. What you have here is an example from the beginnings of Harmonic Minor 7-Tone. This is a world premiere and a semi-difficult one to play at that. With time and patience, you'll get these though.
If you want to know more about 7-Tone and take part in the program, go here
and read all about it. While the mantra goes, "many have tried, few have finished" I've seen Guitar Gym members as well as Course Series users have a distinct advantage given the discipline you develop in those programs. Just sayin'...
Have fun with it!
