Welcome to the Guitar Lessons Pro Articles. Here you will find articles on a variety of subjects ranging from CD and concert reviews to guitar tips to bios on famous artists.

Over the next several weeks we are going to have the pleasure of learning from Brazilian guitarist and teacher Carlos Lichman.

Carlos Lichman is a guitar player from Porto Alegre, Brazil. He has been playing since 1996.

He has played in many rock, progressive and heavy metal bands in night clubs all around Rio Grande do Sul state.

He recorded the "Wake up the Dragons" album with Neverland (heavy metal). This album was praised by many Brazilian magazines.

Playing with many musicians from his city, Carlos arranged the songs for his first 2 song solo demo called "Planet Rock", recorded in December 2002.

The demo style ranges from speed metal to hard rock, with influences ranging from Mr. Big to captivating blues riffs and licks.

Subsequent to the release of the "Planet Rock" demo, Carlos began arranging new songs for his first album. He is also producing his first instructional guitar video.

Carlos teaches guitar lessons, workshops, plays gigs, writes columns for the Guitar-Heroes web site (France) and The Shred Zone (USA).

Carlos Lichman - Lesson 2, Music Theory



Hi people!!!

Iíll begin teaching music theory, why? Well......do you know which mode to play over a chord progression?

You can study scales, fast picking and many other techniques but you need to know what you are doing!

Many people ask me "playing in dorian tonality...what does it means?"

So...take a look here and find the answers.

Tonic major chords, tonic minor, supertonic major, and supertonic minor, dominant and fully diminished. Each one of these has several possibilities for scales to go with them.

The first five groups mentioned can be said to come from a key, while the last has no allegiance to any key.

So Iíll refer to the first five as chord families and the last as just a chord group.

I took the supertonic major family because of this simplicity. The word TONIC as used here refers to the first degree of the major or minor scale and supertonic refers to the second.

The supertonic major chord family has the following interval structure:

Major 13th, Perfect 11th, Major 9th, Minor 7th, Perfect 5th, Minor 3rd, Root

These notes down on octave:

Root, Major 2nd, Minor 3rd, Perfect 4th, Perfect 5th, Major 6th, Minor 7th, Root

I mentioned to pick this family for its simplicity. For 3 reasons:

1) There are no alterations

2) All notes com from the key

3) There are no 4ths nor added 6ths, the chord is just straight up root, 3, 5, 7, 9, 11 and 13.

Here you can do these exercises to identify the major key and the name of the chord and the key.

1- Spell and identify the major key

Cm13 Dbm11 G-9 Fmi7 Abm11

2- Identify the name of the chord and the key:

B D F# A C# A C E G B D F# Bb Db F Ab C Eb G

B D F# A C# E G B D F# A C#

People I hope to help you about your guitar lessons and to improve your music theory .

If you have any question send me an e-mail.
