Does anyone have some fantastic ideas to this one??????
I allready have the famous paper "Approach notes" and kept it by my side for allmost a yaer.(still studdying it!)
So, if you have some graet stuff to share, which goes further than the "Neighbor-tone-approach",
Then IŽd be very thankfull.
PS: Fell free to apply any idea about cromtism that you may have, things that could make things easier......

Excuse my naivety but I'm not familiar with "Approach Notes", I have however heard of the neighbor technique, or family approach when explaining relativity in the structure of notes/scales etc. Please explain...

An approach tone, as I understand it, is basically any non-chord tone that is either a whole step or half step away from one and resolves to a chord tone. Essentially, the only possible difference I can imagine to 'neighbour tones' is that with appraoch tones, you can use several tones before you get to a chord tone - e.g. for a C major chord

F D D# E

Go and look at some Wes solos, for examples.

Alfonso: Then I'm afraid I can't help you! Good luck!

Mr Silver- the definition of a tone is complicated. Either it means a whole tone, or it simply means pitch or note. The latter is the meaning it has in my earlier post.

A tone is a step movement on the instrument.

On a guitar a "whole tone" is two frets away from where you are eg for a G note , a whole tone is an A. A half tone or half step or semi-tone, is only 1 fret away so for a G note it would be and Ab (or G#)
