Ex­am­ple 16th-note mixoly­dian ideas ...cont

Guitar Techniques - - Lesson: Creative Rock -

[Bar 21 (A7 shape #3)] There are three chro­matic notes in this line: all used in dif­fer­ent ways, but al­ways as pass­ing notes: an Eb is used to lead to an E in beat 3 of bar 21; in beat 4 of the same bar, a Bb is used a chro­matic bridge link­ing an A and B; and fi­nally, if you look at the fi­nal four notes on the third string in bar 22, we’ve got a chro­matic de­scent from a G note to an E note. Don’t let this be ob­scured by the use of a D pedal note on the 12th fret of the third string. No­tice how the use of all th­ese chro­matic pass­ing notes doesn’t di­lute the strength of the Mixoly­dian sound at the heart of the lines.
