slide to the same question
« on: March 19, 2011, 04:02:40 pm »
In the lesson Justin gave "Slide to the Same" ie: in  "A" pick the high e string at the 5th fret and slide to the same note on the on the 2nd string ( 10th fret) Justin shows some great applications of this, so heres the question..I end up in the 10Th fret What part of the scale am I in??

As this is the same note it would appear to be the starting point of the same scale , but on the 2nd string. Tonealy that sounds right to me.

Is this correct? Hope this makes sense.... :)

Too many years of plucking away by feel and am now trying to understand some theory.... ::)

It is the Unison. Exactly same note name and frequency. No difference what so ever beyond the string length/gauge/tension which gives it an ever so slightly different character.

If you were in key of A they would both be Root notes.

Thanks! You have confirmed what I suspected. Now I know  am "technically" correct for what I am doing.
