lesson BL-208 mini grips
« on: March 19, 2019, 09:04:30 pm »
Toward the end of the lesson Justin demonstrates a "climber", from the one chord to the four chord, which is fine, however he then goes on to suggest that this can then be repeated from the four chord. This doesn't seem to lead to any useful chord in the key. e.g.,In the key of B flat used in the lesson this sequence arrives at A flat, which doesn't have any place in this key , or am I missing something here?

That's because you're walking up to the Bb chord. Notice the Bb comes after the
Eb chord in the tabs. Do the walk up the tha Ab then play the Bb in the 12 barre
progression.

Thanks Stitch101, I really appreciate you reading my question and replying. I'm new here, and kind of old and slow, so I don't really follow what you're suggesting. I know I need to arrive at B flat (to continue the 12 bar), but paying the "climber" the second time brings me to A flat.

And Bb is the next note after Ab. Are you using every note to climb up.
The first step should be a whole step so you end on the Bb.

Thanks Stitch 101. Let's look at it a different way. The climber originally took us from Bb to Eb, which is a perfect 4th (or 5 semi-tones). If we're going to use the same climb starting on Eb, it should also take us another perfect 4th (5 semi-tones), which takes us to Ab. If we wanted to climb an octave, we'd need to climb a perfect 4th followed by a perfect 5th (7 semi-tones).

Justin explains it at the 10:45 mark after you do the second walk
you jump back to the Bb.
