Example COOL JAZZ 70s MOVIE THEME
[Intro bars 1- 4] Palm-mute this funk y ‘popping’ line and play with a pick using 1/16th note ‘down-up-down-up’ for each beat, which will help to ensure that the notes are played rhythmically. [Bars 5-7] Strictly, the rhy thm guitar plays these chords on the recording, but feel free to play them with a gentle approach, maybe with the thumb. [Bar 8] This is a ‘pick up’ lick into the main theme. Thumb or fingerstyle approach would work here, but watch for correct timing. [A section (main theme) bars 9-15] This is the main theme played in octaves. Again, tr y using your thumb, as this is a common jaz z approach. Accurate timing is essential here, as this is the main melody. [Bar 16] This a little ‘answer’ st yle fill. Be aware of the st yle as you play – it ’s a jaz z vibe, so no craz y vibrato! [Bars 17-33] The octave melody again. Note how there are subtle changes to the previous time round.
