LICK3 tim­ing and phras­ing

Guitar Techniques - - Lesson: Blues -

This in­tro im­plies a D mi­nor or D Do­rian tonal­ity but ends up in D ma­jor. There’s noth­ing too fright­en­ing from a note per­spec­tive here, as it’s again de­rived pre­dom­i­nantly from D mi­nor pen­ta­tonic (D F G A C) with an added 9th in bar 1 (E). Note it’s the rhyth­mic group­ings that cre­ate in­ter­est. It’s worth not­ing that Frank played drums be­fore turn­ing to gui­tar and he’s of the opin­ion that this has helped his phras­ing tremen­dously.
