Using a solfeggio format for guitar makes learning the pitches of the melody of a song easier. I have come up with a modified solfeggio format for playing guitar melodies on one string.
Letting the string played open be “Do,” the rest of the solfeggio notes are played on the following frets:
Re – 2
Mi – 4
Fa – 5
So – 7
La – 9
Ti – 11
DO – 12 (All caps indicates one octave above the starting pitch, “Do”)
This modified solfeggio format works great for learning both the melody of a song and how to play and sing it at the same time!
Here is Passion Chorale in my modified solfeggio format.
