Tritone on 2nd and 1st string

This is the last tritone on adjacent strings, and the last we will build chord around in this lesson. But there are more tritones, and we will end the lesson by showing a few of them. But first we have to look at the tritone on 2nd and 1st string. We find the first tritone on 2nd sting 2nd fret and 1st string 3rd fret.. The next is on 2nd string 8th fret and 1st string 9th fret. If we go one octave up from the first, we end at 2nd string 14th fret and 1st string 15th fret.

With the chosen chords, the first tritone is on 3rd string 6th fret and 2nd string 8th fret, and the second on 3rd string 12th fret and 2nd string 14th fret. When reaching 12th fret, we can also go down one octave, and we have the tritone on open 3rd string and 2nd string 2nd fret. But as chords with open strings are not moveable, we stick to the 12/14th fret.

If you try the chords above, you will find that this combination of strings are a bit hard to play for these chords, as you get some hard stretches.

A7 (C#dim) Eb7 A7 Eb7 (Gdim)

Tritone on 14th and 15th fret

A7 (C#dim) Eb7 A7 (C#dim) Eb7

There are of course more chords that can be played with tritone on 14th and 15th fret, but these are the four where we partly used open strings on the lower position.

There are a few other tritones you can play on the guitar. The first is a real tritone. The others are tritone+octave.

You should be able to figure out which chords can be substituted by which by now, but I list them just to be sure. Remember that you can substitute both ways: A7 can be substituted by Eb7, and Eb7 by A7. The chords in each column can substitute each other.

C7 / Edim C#/Db7 / Fdim D7 / F#dim Eb7 / Gdim E7 / G#/Abdim F7 / Adim 
F#/Gb7 / Bbdim G7 / Bdim Ab7 / Cdim A7 / C#dim Bb7 / Ddim B7 / D#/Ebdim

Now we will leave tritones for a while. But we will not leave the 12-bar blues and three-note chords yet. We will put in some m7 chords. But this will not be before next month and next newsletter.

The Blues from Rock to Jazz
In this DVD, Don uses the basic blues progression as a vehicle to teach chords and soloing techniques found in contemporary blues and jazz fusion. He starts by guiding you through the dominant chord family, showing the basic chords and their substitutions for comping, plus scales, arpeggios and melodic ideas for improvising. Next, he covers how to solo over each chord in the 12-bar blues using secondary dominants and the turnaround. Finally, he breaks down three jazz-fusion 12-bar blues solos, with an in-depth analysis of each bar.
