Try playing the A
Natural Minor Guitar Scale over an A Minor chord for a feel
and sound. The fingering is the same as A Aeolian Mode
(and Ionian Mode Major Scale), just starting on a different
note. I can explain during a lesson.
An easy way to get used to
the feel and sounds is to play it like this. Strum an A minor chord
a few times to let your ear adjust to the "key". Then play:
Speaking of letting your "ear"
adjust. Always trust your ear. If something does not sound
right, it probably isn't, but when learning something new, try it a few
times before you decide it is not right.
A B C on 6th string starting
at 5th fret, 7th fret , then 8th fret
D E F on 5th string starting
at 5th fret, then 7th fret, then 8th fret
G A on 4th string, starting
at 5th fret, then the 7th fret, and keep it going with
B C D on 3rd string, starting
at 4th fret, 5th fret, then the 7th fret
E F G on 2nd string, starting
at 5th fret, 6th fret, then the 8th fret
and finish on the A note 1st
string (5th fret). You can continue on to the 8th fret because we
are on an E string, and the B and C was played on the E 6th string, if
you get the picture. There lots of other fingerings, for now get
used to the sound and this fingering. Then jam on!
Try to remember: 5 7 8, 5 7
8, 5 7, 4 5 7, 5 6 8, 5 7 8
Will get into the most common
strings to bend and in what fret in another lesson. My favorite is a half
step bend (1 fret) on the 1st string at fret 7.
