LESSON 21: TECHNIQUE/THEORY97
HIGH REGISTER
The high register can lend a great deal of energy and intensity to music, especially when it is played loudly.For hard rock, you may want to transpose part or all of the melody up an octave, and use some high notes inyour solo.Practice “Don’t Look Down” with some of the phrases transposed to the higher octave, and notice theirincreased intensity. Focus on playing in tune.

PRACTICE TIP
Develop the ability to transpose up or down an octave by sight. Lead sheets are oftenwritten in the middle register so that they can be read by many different instruments, butthat may not be the best register for where you play it.
