    Greetings,

    On exercise 2, is the transition between the C sharp and the A a pullout? or are you plucking the A before plucking the E? Thanks.

    Hey jharrismed,

    that is a pull off from the C sharp to the A.

    I’m working on Raindrops Keep Falling on my Head. Curious about the difference between Fmaj7 and F7. Are those inversions?

    Hey jharrismed,

    Major 7th chords, and 7th chords are two different chords. A Major 7th chords is made up of the 1st note, 3rd note, 5th note and seventh note of a scale, so the Fmaj7 is made up of F, A, C, and E. A 7th chord is actually what’s know as a dominant seventh, and made up of the same notes except a flat 7th note, F7 would be F, A, C, Eb. Inversions are chords that use the same notes, but the order you play them in is different. The Fmaj7 in Raindrops keep falling on my head is played like this:
    A-0
    E-0
    C-5
    G-5

    but Fmaj7 can also be played like this:
    A-3
    E-1
    C-4
    G-2

    or this:
    A-7
    E-5
    C-5
    G-5

    They all use the same notes, so they should all sound the same, but the order the notes are played and what note is the lowest in the chord are different. Aldrine covers inversions and extensions (7th, maj7 and more) in week 6.

    In exercise 1, is it “okay” to just leave your ring finger on the 3rd fret of A string which is never played open in this arpeggio?

    Which leads me to a question I had when Aldrine was explaining the inside-out technique and arpeggios – you wouldn’t ever play the same note twice, so for example with the F here… the 1st and 4th strings are playing the same note, so even though you got 4 strings, the the “base” F arpeggio is only 3 notes… you have to extend it up with that C on the first string to get a 4-note one…

    Same thing with the G.. the 2nd and 4th strings are playing the same note,,,

    Am I on track here?

    Hey Joko,

    in exercise 1, Aldrine is actually using a pull off on the A string 3rd fret. If you listen, you should hear that open A note. You are correct, but I think when Aldrine was explaining the in to out technique, he might have meant that you don’t want to play the same string twice in a row. You are right, for the G chord Aldrine is adding another D note by playing the the A string 5th fret. Actually, throughout that whole exercise Aldrine is adding repeated notes in the chord. For the C Chord (Bb Chord Shape), Aldrine is adding an E note on the A string (same as the C string 4th fret). For the F, Aldrine is repeating the C note on open C string and the A string 4th fret. You don’t necessarily need to play notes that are within the chord (for the 1st and 2nd exercises, Aldrine is adding notes outside the chords), but it is a safe bet when playing around arpeggios and chord extensions. In Week 6 Aldrine explains in more detail inversions and extensions. I hope that helps.

    Aloha,
