PowerChromatic: The 12 Major Scales with Bends ; Setup Advice

Post by Brendan » Mon Sep 11, 2017 4:01 am

Using draw bends to get the sharps and flats on PowerChromatic makes playing in all 12 keys easier and smoother than on a standard chromatic. I show how in this video:

Here's a clip of me trying to play Brendan's awesome solos from hesitation blues with Andrew White. Transcribing these solos and working on playing them has really helped me get familiar with PC tuning and its fun!

A little rough around the edges but you guys get the idea!

Nice one! I just made up those solos on the spur of the moment, never thought anyone would transcribe and learn them - it's an honour that you've gone to all that effort, Nick! Now you just need your own Andrew White :)

Thanks! Love those solos! They lay over the chords so nicely I figured it was worth studying. I'll definitely have to bug my brother-in-law to do the guitar part.
