GUITAR TECHNIQUES 2 3 5 Our GUITAR jam opens TECHNIQUES with a 16th-note picking 2 3 5 pattern in 6/8 time: classic Moody Blues GUITAR ballad territory! TECHNIQUES Instead of using 2 3 5 alternate picking, you’ll find the economy picking suggested easier, or alternatively use a repeated 'm, i, p' fingerstyle picking pattern. On the backing track, the riff in bar 21 is preceded by two bars of organ. This makes the time signature and tempo change easy to negotiate. The four-bar riff that follows is created by sliding an open E shape along the strings. Finally, the solo section should present no problems – just ensure that your bends are accurate both in pitch and rhythmic execution.
