jeanrepal (3 months ago)
Except Carlos doesn't turn the A minor into a major on Black Magic Woman and accordingly he doesn't use that characteristic note that wants do dissolve back to the D minor chord.

Hahaha awesome, man I been playing some blues for a while I have some skill and can pick things up quite well I think, but I feel like I need to know more theory as my playing is kind of all over the place and has no real structure. I have tried before but I get so far then there's like this jump and I'm lost, like I miss four pages. But at the same time I don't want to lose my feel as I feel this is inevitable when one thinks about theory to much, unless you have a brain like this hahaha. Do you think there is a basic theory level that one can learn to better just understand the theory of the blues.. One thing I learned is that the blues sound simple but it bloody ain't hahaha. I got so much feeling just need to get that sh*t out. Loved your comment and your video, you just got me all kinds of lost man ;) Take care.

Hey Stich, I've loved this lesson for the past year or so, I never see the minor diatonic scale used or demonstrated much, why is that? Could you do another lesson possibly? Thanks!
William Nedbalek (6 months ago)

Westside Smitty (7 months ago)
Awesome exposition! For me, the master of the minor key blues was the great Otis Rush. Mayall covered (and covered, very, very, well!) several of Rush's songs (Double trouble, So Many Roads, So Many trains). Maybe Mayall hipped Green to the form. Another master of the minor blues was Little Walter. Great stuff and a great mood and secret weapon for changing it up at the blues jam! Thanks for making it so accessible.

Does this trick (using the harmonic minor for the turnaround) also work for regular blues progressions or is it limited to minor blues? Thanks for the awesome videos!
Jacob Kyle (10 months ago)
StichMethod Guitar awesome!! Thanks for the response. I look forward to adding that extra A1 steak sauce to my playing! ;)
StichMethod Guitar (10 months ago)
Jacob Kyle It totally works for the blues. But, try for yourself. You do in fact have the power to make that decision. I’m not trying to be rude in anyway, just motivational. Remember if it sounds good to you, then it sounds good to someone else. Thanks for watching and enjoying!

handmethepiano (1 year ago)
Great stuff, thanks.  Glad to hear you're digging into the early Mac stuff where Peter was brilliant.  Hey, so along the lines of Santana and Harmonic Minor, listen to his "Flor de Luna" (Moonflower) instrumental.  I believe that's Natural (mostly) and Harmonic Minor mixed and very beautiful.  I think he uses the major 7 when he resolves to the tonic just like here.  I'm a huge fan of both players.
gatorayde2005 (1 year ago)
i think maybe if one harmonizes the harmonic minor scale, the c# has c#, e, g. maybe this would be a C#dim chord? they are the common notes to the a7th: 3rd, 5th, flatted 7th. so they resolve to the Dm: root, 3rd, 5th.. i'm thinking maybe but i am not sure....
Marc St.james (1 year ago)
awesome lesson and you come across wonderfully great job! thanks.
Christopher Muse (1 year ago)
This guy is very good IMHWO, but after 45 seconds of soloing he starts to talk, and his vocal pedantics are good, but more playing and less explaining would be great for like 2 minutes, then explain, IDK, that's just one player's opinion ...
Mic (1 year ago)
This guy's pretty good. Explaining the genius of Green/Santana isn't easy, much less recreating it. Pay close attention all
Jesus Prieto (1 year ago)
quick question: i bought the print out but the 3 chords are basically around the 10th fret, whereas in the video the chords fingerings are the barred chords in the 3rd and 5th frets... the chords positions on the video sound better... So why the chord fingerings/fret are different than in the video? Im not complaining, I just want to know why the difference
David Evans (1 year ago)
what you played first is there a scale that can be listed or redo tab or something it's beautiful
Kevin o'brien (1 year ago)
enjoy your videos.
Nick (1 year ago)
Thank you so much for the lesson! I have a question. That 'D minor diatonic scale' that you played, can you use that also the same way for other keys? Let's say you want to play this scale starting from the A note on the low E string (the root), is this still the same scale and called the 'Am diatonic scale'? like this: E 5 7 8 A 5 7 8 D 5 7 G 4 5 7 B 5 6 8 E 5 7 8 Thanks again for the lesson!

MrRidleyDog (1 year ago)
You are not naming the notes, you name the frets, why does everyone do that? Call out the notes, people can see the frets, most people have no idea what notes they are playing anymore. It's sad.
MrRidleyDog (1 year ago)
But you are not calling out the intervals, you are calling out the fret numbers. You are verbalizing the TAB and TAB is lazy. Naming the notes reinforces the theory IMHO. You do you though, obviously it works for you and your subscribers. Most people who play guitar now a days have no idea what notes they are playing because they just play TAB, they don't know the name of the note on the 5th fret of the 5th string, they just know where to put their finger next. They have no vocabulary for the language they are trying to communicate in.

What video of yours would you suggest to learn about separate notes? (chords)? I don't know enough YET to keep up with this.
Brad Easley (1 year ago)
Great lesson, Ian! Really appreciate all your videos! BUT... you said, "...Black Magic Woman by Peter Green / Carlos Santana; the former who remade it." Peter Green wrote it. Santana remade it. I'm guessing you meant to say "...the LATTER who remade it."

There must be 100,000 or more"guitar teachers" on YouTube. You are my absolute favorite. I have learned more watching one or two of your videos than all lessons combined since the 70s.

Pat Green (1 year ago)
Hi, very nice and relaxed and a little humerous! Nice explanation of the scales too. Can I just add I think Peter Green's chord pattern was Dm7 (24th fret) vocal Dm A7 Dm Gm (Dm C Bflat A7) Dm.... Dm7 (24th fret) I sort of remember from 1968.....I think the first A7 instead of Am points up the Gm (you can disagree!) Another point I think his first solo almost paraphrases the vocal. Sorry if someone else already said this I haven't read all the numerous comments.
LogBurnerify (1 year ago)
That is a fairly awesome lesson!!
DANIEL HELLER (1 year ago)
Brilliant. Have played Black Magic Woman note for note for years. Never understood the A7 or it's relationship to the notes Santana was playing. Now I do. Thanks

When you start soloing around the 6:30 mark, you are naming the arpeggios, correct? Are you in the same key or scale the entire time?
Edward Yeo (1 year ago)
To get a little out with that A7, try sneaking the Melodic minor in, going up followed by the Harmonic Minor going down. Heard it in Classical compositions.

Long time guitar player here who recently learned piano and applying each instrument in composing. I really enjoy your explanation and theory.  Most guitar players (myself for many years) don't apply music theory to their playing. You do a great job demonstrating the theory of music while knocking out cool riffs. Get it up bro.

Nailed it man. Theory is a very useful tool to explain what sounds good in a tune, it is not what makes the music! Thanks for the great insight into one of the techniques utilized in Peter and Carlo's solos!

ElMarko2000 (1 year ago)
Not to be a hater but the f# & g# at 10:56 (part of an A major scale) seems a little incongruous, harmonically speaking, here. Just my take on it. Great lesson though!
Jeff Buchko 2 (1 year ago)
Because it is harmonically incongruous - though still intentional. The g# gives you the leading tone to the dominant 5 chord in the same way the c# leads to the d. G# is also the b5 in the key of d minor. Here its resolution to the A has an admittedly 'happy' sound about it, that is what makes it stick out. That is why it works. That's the art of it - taking something that should not work and making it work.
Todd Callison (1 year ago)
Great lesson, keep 'm coming brother
Alejandro Sosa (1 year ago)
Hum a tune in your head or have someone hum you a tune... can you repeat it on your guitar? If you can't, you're wasting your time with theory, you're wasting your time with talk of "seeing" notes, your wasting your time with fretboard moves. Music is a hearing art.
Alejandro Sosa (1 year ago)
OK thanks I will look at more of your lessons. Really, my initial post was more of a venting of frustration with myself than anything; certainly not a shot at you. Strum a G chord and if I'm not looking at you I won't know you just played a G - and how the hell is one to function in any kind of a musical setting with a handicap such as that? Might as well be blind in front of a canvas with a loaded palette. But I am trying. Relative pitch app.. Jamey Aebersold play alongs.. Maybe I'm just not working hard enough - hell I should be practicing right now as I type this LOL.. I appreciate what you wrote, thank you.
Alejandro Sosa (1 year ago)
LOL. Apparently you see everything as a confrontation. I myself am UNABLE to play phrases I hear in my head, even after years of learning scales, theory, etc. My point was this: music is a language, and if you can't hear what others are doing and respond accordingly you're dead in the water - unless your only goal is to parrot songs alone in your bedroom. Imagine if we taught children to speak the way we try to teach people to play.

Excellent presentation of the Harmonic minor color. Bravo
Ed Grammer (1 year ago)
It's the tri-tone....in this case the C# and G of the A7 chord....resolving to the D and F of the Dm chord.  So much of Western (European) music is based on this resolution from the unstable (tri-tone - "the Devil's interval" - very unstable) to the stable (in this case the minor third of the i chord).

78tag (1 year ago)
This video made me have to go back and look at my scales. I forgot that there is a b6 to go with the b7 in the minor scale so I couldn't get the scale to jive. Now of course I am reminded that the harmonic minor just raises that b7 to a major 7. This stuff just goes round and round until someone like you puts it to use for us. Thanks. btw - this is my bad but I got the impression that your "soloing" download was going to be some version of the actual solo. That's OK - your charts are just what they should be - I will use your logic to figure it out. Thanks again, as I have said before, I am impressed with your style of teaching.
78tag (1 year ago)
That is why your style works so well. I have found from personal experience that you learn much more thinking about what your doing instead of just memorizing in any task ... and don't care what Sean says - you're alright ::)
