And arpeg­gios

Guitar Techniques - - Play: Blues-rock -

The sixth string is left ring­ing while the phrases are played and this helps in two ways; first, by filling out the sound, and sec­ond by an­chor­ing the har­mony. Arpeg­gios are mu­si­cally very de­scrip­tive as they spell out the har­mony in sin­gle notes. In bar 37 we are us­ing some Eric John­son style open chord/ar­peg­gio voic­ings. Th­ese can be played with a down, down, up pick­ing pat­tern as no­tated or with hy­brid pick­ing (eg down, m, a).
