ExAmplE 10 LonG IIIVIIIVIs In B FLat
Over the Dm7 Wayne moves up and down a Dm9 arpeggio, then over the Db7 he plays around Db lydian b7 with a chromatic passing note, ending on the 5th (D) and 3rd (B) of G7 (of which Db7 is a tritone substitution). Over the Cm7 he moves up the C minor scale then down a Cm7 arpeggio, then comes down B lydian b7 with a chromatic passing note and resolves to Bb5, followed by a rather ‘out’ sounding tritone idea between B and F over the B diminished 7. For the closing 3 bars, he moves up a Cm7 arpeggio into an implied G7 and back to Cm over the Cm7, then comes down a B major triad over the B7 and resolves to the root of the Bbmaj7. I hope you’ve enjoyed our look at this intriguing guitarist.
