EXAMPLE STRING SKIPPING JAM
[Bars 1 to 12]
Our string skipping jam is played over a Dm7 backing track. This means if we use the notes of C Major we imply the D Dorian GUITARmode which TECHNIQUEShas a nice MAGAZINEblues and fusion2 4 0 sound. Bar 6 has the first string- skipping run. This one uses the octave interval and the finger slides and picking pattern has been notated. The intervallic run in bar 8 is similar to the one we looked at in example 3 only this time we have included some finger slides for a smoother sound between the transitions. In bar 11 and 12 we apply the idea from example 8 to create an ascending phrase.
