There are 6 “Tetra-tonic” Scales. They all have four notes. Below, is our scale for this blog and video and will be the Tetratonic scale starting on the note B.
Alternate Picking the Scale: Starting on a “Downstroke”
We will make a short Robert Fripp-esque line from this scale and employ “Cross Picking” Guitar Technique.
In order to create a line like this it is a good idea to take “Triplets” and make them into chord pairs.
Here are the Guitar Picking patterns that I used. They are very Fripp-esque as they employ Alternate picking and Crosspicking.
We can also make “Chords” out of this scale.
Triplet Chordal/Cross picking Robert Fripp style “Tetratonic” Chords
This next Robert Fripp lick employs “Dyads” which are 2 note chords made from this Tetra-tonic scale.
Next, we will use alternate picking and play the “Dyads” in a single note fashion:
Lastly, we will take 2 chords “NOT” from the Tetratonic Scale but a “Tri-tone” apart. These will be B and F.
