Is it coincidental that early 'brass' instruments, which had no valves, focused on large intervals. 5ths and 4ths, and octaves especially.

150k views on insta-narc - must have been the bright yellow colour guitar that 'attracted' them. Maybe it looks 'superior' or something. They'd do anything for the aesthetics, inc. knowingly putting poison on their faces to 'look' [down] better than others. Proper scummy app that one is, like most - but that's human nature.

For John Williams and StarWars fans, from the StarWars Fandom. "In the mid-to-late 1970s, the 20th Century Fox logo had all but been phased out. However, Lucas enjoyed the logo and Alfred Newman music so much that he insisted it be used for his films." "When John Williams signed onto the project, one of his first moves was to compose the Main Title to : Episode IV in the same key as the 20th Century Fox fanfare. He has said before that it was truly meant as another extension of the fanfare, and it has since then been adopted by film score buffs as part and parcel of the scores to ."

I'd been focusing on trying to locate the 3rds and the 7ths and neglecting the P5s, I treated it like an unimportant interval, it's the first one to omit when you have an extended chord, but now I realize its beauty and power and capacity for a melodic statement!

I could. It have been more bored in my music classes @ Martha Brown JHS and though I can carry a tune I have just no idea about music theory. That said, I kept hearing other rock riffs while you were explaining the theme. EVH’s Jamie’s Crying comes to mind.....

Rick, it would be great if you could get Hans Zimmer on for an interview sometime or John Williams. Zimmer is very busy of course, and I don't know if Williams is retired, but either or both would be great at some point.

Mike Oldfield built almost an entire album (Incantations) from a pattern of going up up a fifth, down a tone and repeating to taste. He does it throughout the album in different ways. Also, the concept formed the basis of his disco single Guilty.

Okay, so I love Rick and all but when my student comes to me and says I watched Ricks vid on Anthemic melodies and he played the beginning songs like Superman, Indiana Jones, etc. those were understandably Anthemic Melodies. Something I can hum or whistle. But what he did afterwards on his guitar had nothing to do with hummable or even themed melody. It was Rick once again ripping fast guitar licks and scales that you can’t find in Rock, Pop, or really any other genre other than jazz. I’m gonna have to agree.

basically you should check band called Nightwish; there are several epic anthems songs like "Greatest Show on Earth" (best live at Tampere), "Ghost Love Score" (Official live Wacken 2013) and so on. Specially GSoE outdo is made of anthemic epicness ;-)

There was a TV program by Sir George Martin that explained this phenomenon slightly differently, but the same idea. Skips and steps he referred to them. Sorry I cannot remember the program. It made reference to the Lord is my Shepherd which is 6ths , also talked about shepherd scales when things seem to progress upwards.

I think people or guitarists like those videos because of your style of playing. You have some very different fingering choices or patterns that we don't hear in popular music. It catches our technical ear! Then when you add your lesson on top of it it has a since of this "mind blowing effect" so to speak. Love your lessons and your playing! You are an interesting musician and teacher!

Very educational and interesting Rick - and greetings to you from Ireland. I've watched many of your videos - (most of them I think) - but I've never seen you do a video on picking, and its various types - hybrid, sweep, alternate etc. It would be great to hear your advice on picking and its many variations. I wish you and your family good health, and continued success to your channel.

Those intervals would be all open if playing a brass instrument or 1st position for trombone. Very simple when you think about it. (Overtone series)

The Cranberries singer use to sing wide intervals. As did The Proclaimers in "500 Miles." BTW, it looks like the keyboard is responding to notes you're playing. Is there software where if you play it a piano track it can transcribe it either live or from tape?
