Ex­am­ple 3 nonChord Tones

Guitar Techniques - - Creating Harmony Parts Pt2 | Learning Zone -

While this ex­am­ple fea­tures mainly par­al­lel mo­tion, oblique mo­tion (one part re­mains sta­tion­ary, the other moves) is used where par­al­lel har­mony would fail to pro­duce notes that re­late well to the un­der­ly­ing chord. All chord tones, scale notes (in brack­ets with a star above) and non-scale/chro­matic notes (square brack­ets) match up. Ex­cep­tions are: the fourth note in bar 9, which is chro­matic in Gui­tar 1, but a scale-note in Gui­tar 2 (to im­ply E7); and the third note in bar 15 – a scale-note in Gui­tar 1, but chro­matic in Gui­tar 2. How­ever, both notes form the lower part of a three-note semi­tone pedal mo­tif based around a chord tone.
