2 Note Music Patterns
2 Note Music Patterns Think Outside The Box
I thought I’d do a post dealing with the idea of thinking outside the box with some of my courses to help you see how a simple change in thought patterns can open new doors. Many times students get stuck in the trees and don't see the forest. Hopefully this post will help you to open up your creativity and see new musical ideas.
Modal Sequencing - Two Note for All Instrumentalists
Modal Sequencing - Two Note for All Instrumentalists is a course that is filled with two Note Music Patterns. First a great way to develop phenomenal technique on your instrument but it is really so much more. It's a book for any instrumentalist and will help you:
- Develop you technique with common musical patterns
- Find new melodic ideas with the 22 most commonly used scales in music
- Develop a deeper knowledge of the scales included in this study
- Develop your ear training skills by singing and hearing through various examples.
- Develop a melodic language that allows you to be more compositional in your improvisations
- Develop a way to organize scalar ideas.
So you can see that this book of 2 Note Music Patterns is going to do a lot for you right off the bat. But if you start to think outside the box you soon realize that this course can be a very powerful music tool.
Digging Deeper with 2 Note Music Patterns
If we think of 2 Note Music Patterns found in the Modal Sequencing - Two Note for All Instrumentalists more abstractly we can actually apply two note music patterns to other musical techniques. The first obvious idea is to take these two note music patterns and change their rhythm. Some common changes would be:
- Change the rhythm of the two note music patterns from eighth notes to triplets or other rhythmic groupings.
- Take rhythmic patterns excerpts from the Time Studies Books such as Rhythms Volume One or Rhythms Volume 6 Quintuplets which covers rhythms that use Quintuplets.
- Learn the two note music patterns using the MetroDrone and the ideas presented in the Long Line Rhythm course accelerate your technique off the dial but also develop a better musical feel where you "feel time and don't count time."
- To apply any of the ideas above to Jam Tracks so that you are applying them to real music
Think Outside The Box with 2 Note Music Patterns
You can also get a bit more abstract with your thought process and start applying the idea of a rwo note music pattern to other musical ideas.
- Take the 52 Sweep Patterns for Guitar, 720 Sweep Patterns or the Trichord Sweep Pairs Guitar Instrumentalist Sweep Arpeggios and apply the 2 note music patterns to the sweep patterns.
- Take some of the commonly overlooked courses that contain some of the hippest melodic ideas such as Symmetrical Trichord Pairs or Tertial Octatonics and play the musical ideas in these books as various 2 note music patterns.
- Add Approach Note patterns to the two note music patterns to give you melodic lines that have a lot more interest and sound more musical because they the approach notes can be functioning as a embellishment to the 2 note music pattern.
- Take modern scales from the Sonic Resource Guide and use 2 note music patterns to create interesting melodic ideas. This works really well with trichords pairs formed from hexatonic scales.
2 Note Music Patterns Conclusion
You can see that just taking a simple concept like a two note music pattern and thinking outside the box can open up all kinds of new musical sounds for you. Try to think this way when working with any Muse Eek Publishing Course.
