Ex­am­ple8 Ma­jor and mi­nor II-V-I in Bb and G mi­nor

Guitar Techniques - - Grant Green Learning Zone -

EEx­am­ple 8 fea­tures mi­nor and ma­jor II-V- Is in Bb and G mi­nor, and high­lights the rhyth­mic so­phis­ti­ca­tion in Green’s play­ing, mov­ing be­tween 8th notes, 8th-note triplets, 16th notes, 16th-note triplets and fea­tur­ing some great syn­co­pated ideas. The trills are a par­tic­u­lar fea­ture of Green’s style, as he plays around C Do­rian with G7 im­plied and chro­matic move­ment in bar 1, F al­tered over the F7 in bar 2 and Bb ma­jor over Bb­maj7. Bars 3 and 4 see Green high­light­ing each rhyth­mic an­tic­i­pa­tion by land­ing on the note above each Bb chord tone, be­fore ‘re­solv­ing’ down to the chord tone. He moves down A Locrian over the Am7b5, out­lines D7b9 on the D7 and closes in G Do­rian over the Gm7. So­phis­ti­cated stuff!
