Exam ple 9b de­vel­op­ing the theme

Guitar Techniques - - Lesson: Video -

Here, we are es­sen­tially play­ing around with the same fig­ure, in­volv­ing ham­merons, pull- offs, sweep­ing and that blues twist at the end, as well as re-af­firm­ing the tonal­ity by play­ing a bit of funky riff­ing on a D9 chord shape. Allen also fur­ther de­vel­ops the idea of the pat­tern, show­ing how you can shift the same idea to dif­fer­ent po­si­tions and de­grees on the scale, achiev­ing dif­fer­ent sound­ing re­sults, while main­tain­ing sim­i­lar pick­ing and legato com­bi­na­tions. No­tice how the fi­nal four bars here trans­fers the first half of the ini­tial pat­tern to two dif­fer­ent po­si­tions, fin­ish­ing off with an im­pact­ful rep­e­ti­tion of the com­plete orig­i­nal idea.
