Bridging Frames 1-5-4 for Am/C Pentatonic
Once we’ve used frame 4 as a limit, we connect it to what we already know for Am/C, focusing on linking frame 4 to 5.
- Take Inventory → we can see that frames 5 and 4 share a border. These are the middle tones [tail of frame 4, head of frame 5]. What were 5 frets are now mostly opens and the C tone is a 1 fret.
- Connect them → improvise with just frames 4 & 5 in Am/C. 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 1-0, 3-3, 5-5]. We work every tonal combination we can imagine, on 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. Break it down, add it back.
- Jam with all 3 frames [include chords!].
