Did you notice, that the transposed chords don't match with our plan to play Em-Am-C-Em? Instead of minor chords, E and A major chords are played - these are the chords which have been specified G1T1. How to solve this? In this particular case, the best way is the usage of the Force-To-Scale function.<BR>

With the C Major scale only the notes C, D, E, F, G, A, and H will be played, but no other semitones (see also <A HREF="http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Major_scale" TARGET="_blank">this Wikipedia article</A> for details). In other words: only the white keys (in the C scale) will be played. All notes of the intended chord sequence Em-Am-C-Em are in this scale, and therefore this is a perfect match.<BR>

After the 8th measure the Guitar starts to play a nice glissando! This has been achieved by using the (beloved) echo function with 3 repeats and 8d delays. In addition I'm interactively changing the note increase value from +1..+12 notes. The Force-to-Scale function ensures, that the echos are still "valid" notes in the C scale! :-)
