EX­AM­PLE CARL VERHEYEN MAS­TER­CLASS

Guitar Techniques - - LESSON: VIDEO -

[Bars 1-4] Carl demon­strates a range of voic­ings over Em7. All the notes de­rive from E mi­nor Pen­ta­tonic with an added 9th (E-F#-G-A-B-D). Th­ese work well over Em7 with­out any prob­lem­atic ten­sions. In this way chords can be freely con­structed from this set of notes to form ef­fec­tive melodies. Sim­i­larly bars 5- 6 (over Am7) are built from A Do­rian (A-B -C- D - E- F#-G) and a hy­brid-picked 6th-5th pat­tern is used in bars 6-8 (ie B-G-E, C-A-E, G-E-B). [Bar 9] Play the chord har­mon­ics by ‘brush-strum­ming’ over the 19th fret (12 frets above the chord). The pick strums, the first fin­ger touches the 19th fret. [Bars 13-16] Here we see a cat­a­logue of voic­ings over an Em7 con­text. Again we see the use of the 6th-5th intervallic pat­tern built on E mi­nor Pen­ta­tonic with an added 9th (E-F#-G-A-B-D), but also the slightly more an­gu­lar ‘stacked 5th’ pat­tern (E-B-F# and D-A-E) in bars 14-15.
