Ex­am­ple5 Straight eighths over swing groove

Guitar Techniques - - Lesson: British R&b -

This riff be­gins in the third po­si­tion, but moves to the fifth po­si­tion at the start of bar 3. To fa­cil­i­tate this, you’ll need to jump from the low G on the third fret (played with your first fin­ger) to Bb on the 6th fret (played with your sec­ond). Your hand will then be in fifth po­si­tion, and all the notes of Bb Mixoly­dian will lit­er­ally be un­der your fin­gers. Although not hard to play, this was quite so­phis­ti­cated stuff for its time.
