Bridging Frames 1-2-3 for Em/G Pentatonic
Once we’ve used frame 3 as a limit, we connect it to what we already know for Em/G, focusing on linking frame 3 to frame 2.
- Take Inventory → we can see that frames 2 and 3 share a border. These are the middle tones [tail of frame 2, head of frame 3]. What were 2 & 3 frets are now 7 & 8 frets. The G on string 1 in frame 2 can be moved to the 2 string, fret 8. The D on string 2 in frame 2 can be moved to the 3 string, fret 7, and so on. Figure this out. Match them up.
- Connect them → improvise with just frames 3 & 2 in Em/G. Use all of the tones of both to improvise, build chords, with or without audio.
- Stitch → work with any string couplet [any two strings, adjacent or non-]. Start with the 2 & 1 strings [this would be 3-3, 5-5, 8-7]. We work every tonal combination of just those 2 strings. After the 2/1 strings, we do the same with 2/3, 3/4, 4/5, 5/6, plus any other combinations. The idea is to break it down, add it up.
- Jam with all 3 frames [include chords!].
