We will show here a tool to increase even more your solo, it is the Octave Displacement (or octave dispersion).
The idea is really simple: to have fun with octaves. The interesting is that even working only with tonal notes (without outside notes), it is possible to have a differentiate sonority! This study will help you to make a solo in a way less linear and more “easy-going”.
Before working one more technique, try to play all the examples below. Here we are only playing each note from the C7M chord with its respectively octave, what is already good:
Octave Displacement in music scales
Now we will do this: we will play a note from C major scale and the next note from the scale will be played one octave above, and so on consecutively. After that, in the next bar line, we will do the opposite: we will start with an acute note and we will work with the next note one octave below. Check it:
Arpeggios with Octave Displacement
In the next example, we will work this concept in arpeggio of Em7:
You can increase these ideas to the other scales too. Try it!
Soon we will be adding more ideas and implementations in solos.
You can also send us your own ideas.
Have a nice training!
