Ex­am­ple2 Comp­ing with chord stabs

Guitar Techniques - - Lesson: R&B -

EIn this ex­am­ple (us­ing bars 8-12 of a 12-bar blues se­quence) the har­monic ' think­ing' has been in­cluded above the tab. No­tice how chord move­ment has been cre­ated in the sec­ond bar by al­ter­nat­ing be­tween F7 and Cm7 shapes. The Dm7 chord in bar 3 has the 5th (A) omit­ted to al­low it to func­tion as a Bb9 voic­ing (A = ma­jor 7th of Bb, not good!). Rel­a­tively sim­ple ideas such as this can spice up your play­ing with ex­tra­or­di­nary re­sults.
