Ex­am­ple5 Split oc­taves idea

Guitar Techniques - - Lesson: Jazz -

Ex­am­ple 5 fea­tures a post-Wes split oc­taves idea, with Benson play­ing a three-note pat­tern (low oc­tave, high oc­tave, low oc­tave) in 16th notes that rhyth­mi­cally dis­places it­self each time, and slid­ing it around the neck in C Do­rian, end­ing with a chro­matic as­cent and a G oc­tave. The pat­tern can be played with pick and sec­ond fin­ger, or thumb and first or sec­ond fin­ger ( Wes, of course, was a thumb- only player).
