BERNIE MARSDEN’ S MINOR BLUES
[Bars 25-37] This final chorus star ts out with some double-stops. Bernie uses double-stops to great effect in songs like Ain’t No Love In The Heart Of The Cit y. The phrase in bar 27 is a fast flourish, and you may need to have a couple of listens to get this one down. Bars 33 and 34 feature some ideas ‘right up there’ in position 17, so be careful to keep the notes in tune. Good intonation can be achieved by ensuring you don’t press too hard, or over-bend the notes (good vibrato can help too, and Bernie’s is among the best). The solo finishes with a super-cool sounding string bend, which goes from the root A to the 9th (B).
