I'm learning guitar and have been practicing transitions between chords using notes in common for the key/scale.
One lesson starts with A minor for one measure and then transitions to D minor by playing the individual notes A A B C, and then the D minor for one measure. Going back to A minor uses D D C B and then the A minor chord for one measure, then to E minor with A A G F. Something like this:
Amin | A A B C | D Dmin | D D C B | A Amin | A A G F | E Emin | E E F G | A Amin |
While practicing, I really don't like the sound of the F in the transition between Amin and Emin, and started playing F# instead of F. I really like this sound, but I cannot find what it is. To my ears, it sounds much more appealing and I would think this has a name, but I cannot seem to find anything. Of course, it could just be an F# in my A minor progression.
