In this video by Kyle Tuttle I am having a hard time understanding what he is talking about.
Its like a different language when he uses terms and phrases like
“The minor third degree of the minor blues scale or the second note of the minor blues scale”
“Starting with C the first the second degree the third degree the fifth degree and the sixth degree of the scale”
“Each one of them involves an extension above the octave em above the one octave reach above the scale”
“So that’s going to be the root position version of this shape starting from the first degree of the scale”
“The second shape for this exercise would be, was referred to as the first inversion, shape which means starting from the third degree of the scale”
Pentatonic Shapes with Extensions
Diatonic 7th Chords
I was thinking @BanjoBen maybe you could do a series of lessons on these topics but in a language the uneducated folk among us could understand. It’s quite clear from the video’s that Kyle is a brilliant banjo player and knows what he is talking about but he is struggling to get his message across to this somewhat dumb student.
