Theory Applied

I feel the best way to learn theory is to see it applied in music. Post riffs (of your own or from a band) that show different aspects of theory and how it's used, not just showing different scales.

I would if i knew an easy way to tab stuff on here, but i don't. Plus, i don't know enough theory to be teaching. I only know the basics

heres a lick i wrote in Eminor which goes from diminished half to phygrian mode to diminished half, to Eminor pentatonic to something i dont know the name of. it might show smooth transitions between scales. it probably doesn't
Code:
(diminished half) e--13-12-16-12-15-12-13-12-16-12-15-12-13-12-16-12-15-12-13-12------------ B---------------------------------------------------------------------15b(17)r-- G------------------------------------------------------------------------------- D------------------------------------------------------------------------------- A------------------------------------------------------------------------------- E------------------------------------------------------------------------------- (phygrian) (diminished half) e------------------------------------------------------------------------------- B-12-13-12--------------------------------------------------------------------- G-----------14-12-------------------------------------------------------------- D-----------------15-14-12----------------------------------------------------- A---------------------------15-14-12---------------------10-11-13-14---------- E-------------------------------------15-13-12-10-12-13----------------------- (pentatonic) e------------------------13----------------------------------------------------- B---------------------------15-12-b(17)b(17)r15-12----------14-12------------- G--------------12-13-14----------------------------14-12----14-12------------- D-11-12-14-15--------------------------------------------14--------14--------- A------------------------------------------------------------------------------- E------------------------------------------------------------------------------- (??????) (more that i cant be arsed to tab out) e----------------------------------12trill(15)--------------------------------------------- B----------------------13b(15)r13----------------------------------------------- G------------------------------------------------------------------------------- D------------12-13-14---------------------------------------------------------- A--12-13-14-------------------------------------------------------------------- E-------------------------------------------------------------------------------


if anyone can tell me what scale that end bit is?

i have left out almost all dynamics/timing tones and stuff because this isnt about technique.

note: this is a representation of my work and is intended for educational use only. any motherfucker stealing my lick will be prosecuted in hell.
besides, only an idiot would steal someone elses solo. especially one of mine.

an expert is someone who knows all their is to know about a certian subject, just knowing the basics is FAR from being an expert at theory. it is a start though

seeing as none of you like my example of how to change fluidly between scales while soloing, ill post an example of harmonising instead.


Code:
(played together) Guitar 1 e|----|---------------------------------|---------|----| B|----|---------------------------------|---------|----| G|----|---------------------------------|---------|----| D|----|----------4-----------5----------|-7--5--4-|----| A|----|-7--5--7-----7--5--7-----7--5--7-|---------|-5--| E|--0-|---------------------------------|---------|----| guitar 2 e|----|---------------------------------|---------|----| B|----|---------------------------------|---------|----| G|----|----------------------4----------|-7--5--4-|----| D|----|-5--4--5--7--5--4--5-----5--4--5-|---------|-4--| A|----|---------------------------------|---------|----| E|--0-|---------------------------------|---------|----|


I have split this into sections, although it should be played as strait 4/4 on the beat.
here is what each section contains...
1st. - no harmonisation
2nd. - guitar 2 is a minor 3rd up
3rd. - guitar 2 is a constant 4th up
4th. - guitar 2 is a major 3rd up
i suppose you need 2 guitars to fully understand that, but it is intended to show that by interchanging harmonies, you can make things sound better.

note: this is a representation of my work and is intended for educational use only. any motherfucker stealing my riff will be prosecuted in hell.
besides, only an idiot would steal someone elses riff. especially one of mine.









or have i just got the wrong end of the wrong stick

Basically the best thing to do is learn all of the theory you can, and then just "forget it" when you are jamming. You don't want things to sound mechanical or "plastic". Just play by feeling. All the theory will come to you after you have played some cool riffs (or arrangements) and when you go back to figure out what you just played, then you can apply the theory, etc.

Also, it's best to learn your theory from books with facts instead of trying to read opinions over the internet. Practice, play, and learn from books and other factual sources.
