jazz/fusion guitarist John Mclaughlin builds this Indian “Raga” through the harmonic minor scale creating a “Fusion” style of music. The key to this style and lesson is to build 4 note groupings of 16th notes called “Tetrachords”. In this lesson we use the A harmonic minor Scale and employ strict alternate picking starting on a “Down” stroke.
Keep the alternate picking rhythmical and tight by accenting the first note of each 4 note grouping. This way you will know where you are in the bar or rhythmic cycle as for example in Teen Taal.
