Ex­am­ple6 Laid back chordal line

Guitar Techniques - - Lesson: Jazz -

Benson is a mas­ter of chordal solo­ing, as this lovely line demon­strates. Mov­ing be­tween three and four-note voic­ings, he har­monises a sim­ple melodic line, mov­ing be­tween Am and di­min­ished voic­ings over the Am7, then mov­ing up chro­mat­i­cally over the D7 to close on F9#11 and E9­sus voic­ings. Benson strums this with a pick, but it also works Wes style with the thumb, or fin­gers.
