VARIATION9 Angular, Cluster & ‘Wes’ Voicings
EThere are three main devices employed in our final 12-bar chorus. We kick off with a selection of slightly more dissonant and, dare I say, modern sounding voicings containing #4s galore and plenty of semitone action that’ll send conservative compers running for the hills. We move onto a short section of Wes Montgomery endorsed diminished 7th to Am6/D9 action in bars 106-106 before rounding proceedings up nicely with a cheeky contrary motion idea in bars 107-108, straight from the Kirk Fletcher (Fabulous Thunderbirds)school of jazzy-bluesy rhythm guitar. Nice!
