I think Vai has figured out the best way to play his songs. He may have played around with them a lot and just figured out the way they sound the best. And also, Vai does improvise live. Just listen...

That's because you aren't actually memorizing the piece, you are just learning to read and play the notes. Listen to a recording of the song you want to learn to play. That will help you memorize the...

Yeah, as Crazysam said, play it slower and figure out the inversions you want to use. When you are composing, you don't have to play the song at full tempo. Also, as your ear gets better, you can...

Just use your ears and play what sounds best to your ears. Don't think too technically. If you hear an inversion, play an inversion. If not, don't.

Who cares if it's called "minor key" or "minor mode"? Just shut up. That wasn't the point of the thread.

If you are an original band and want to do covers, add your own twist to them. I don't see a point with playing them note for note. Because who wants to listen to your version if it's identical to...

I hear them as inversions of Dim chords because that's their function. The C#dim chord in your progression actually functions as the vii diminished chord and the D#dim chord functions as a secondary...

The most common way of using inversions is if you have a chord progression like Am G C, you could play A B C on bass. That way the bassline sounds a bit smoother than just playing root notes all the...

Yes, it's technically the same as major scale with a flat third but I would rather call it minor scale with raised 6th and 7th (because it is a minor, not a major scale). It is used to avoid the...
