Neapolitan Major

A few years ago I cut out 12 felt squares, one for each degree of the chromatic scale, in hopes of letting chance help me to discover some new sounds.
One day I closed my eyes and picked out a group of seven notes which I subsequently learned are referred to by some as the Neapolitan Major mode. I played around with it a little, ran it through Mick Goodrick’s ‘Cycle 2’, and picked some different pedals to go underneath it.

  1. Hi. I thought I was the only one to write down the notes in little pieces of paper to avoid practicing always the same progressions. Now I know I’m not alone 🙂
    Thanks for the countdown ideas.
