    Default Major Double Stops Lesson (ex. from ‘Rise’ Eddie Vedder) Part 1

    Hi guys, because we seem to talk less about harmony than melody, and because Music theory has a lot of different nomenclature, I thought I’d have a go at trying to explain the fretboard and major double stops.
    Please leave comments if you see any glaring typos or if it seems that I need to be clearer in certain parts, or you know what ‘Modal’ means?
    Enjoy!

    Seeing the word "Lesson", and seeing F A# C as a I-IV-V – c'mon...

    Thanks Jim, but it doesn’t make you curious to stop and watch the vid? It’s about geography. And it’s free. C’mon!

    Hey Simon, thanks for sharing!

    The A# is a glaring "typo" (okay, not literally a typo but an error) because the F scale has A natural as third followed by a Bb for the fourth degree, and the IV & V is Bb - C

    Yes the A# and Bb are harmonic equivalents in equal temperament tuning, but they are not the same musically, so it's reasonable to expect feedback on this type of error. Not a bad reflection on you or your enthusiasm or your lesson's main thrust, in my opinion, but an important error to correct for clarity. Those types of mistakes can be off putting to musicians who know better, and confusing or misleading to people who are just trying to learn.

    But enough about that ... your contribution is appreciated, please keep it up, and thank you for requesting feedback!
    Technique, theory and fun, fun, fun. I love playing, studying and sharing MUSIC.

    Thanks Mark and Jim, I appreciate your input. It’s funny because I didn’t really want to include the key of F.
    Ok I’ve changed it. The vid’s looking so good now!
    -not sure why YouTube chose this thumbnail though.
