Ex­am­ple7 Chordal line on a Bm7 vamp

Guitar Techniques - - Lesson: Jazz -

Ex­am­ple 7 is a very char­ac­ter­is­tic Benson post-Wes idea, as he moves swiftly around a se­ries of three-note voic­ings in B mi­nor. The voic­ings are ba­si­cally oc­taves with the mid­dle note filled in, with Benson switch­ing be­tween 5ths and 4ths to suit the har­mony, and the speed with which he crosses strings and de­scends in the fi­nal two bars is par­tic­u­larly chal­leng­ing. Benson again plays this with his pick, but it also works with the thumb or fin­gers.
