Guitar Techniques - - 5-NOTE STRING-PAIR CELLS -


L LexAm­pLe 7 This is the first of two ex­am­ples that fea­ture five-note string­pair cells that fol­low a 3-2 con­fig­u­ra­tion. Here, the same five-note A mi­nor pen­ta­tonic cell is treated dif­fer­ently in each oc­tave (on each string pair). Also, note the use of ac­cents in or­der to add rhyth­mic ex­pres­sion. ex­Am­pLe 8 Again, here, the cell is treated dif­fer­ently each oc­tave. This par­tic­u­lar cell com­prises the fol­low­ing notes: 1 2 b3

A B C 4 D 5 E

LexAm­pLe 9 (1-4) The string-pair cell used in each oc­tave of this ex­am­ple also com­prises notes of the A mi­nor pen­ta­tonic; how­ever, here it fol­lows a 1-4 note-con­fig­u­ra­tion, ex­e­cuted us­ing a com­bi­na­tion of pick­ing and fret­ting­hand taps. Again, con­cen­trate on keep­ing the notes to an even 16th-note triplet count through­out. Ideas like this sound great whether you play them flat out like a ma­chine gun; or slow them right down and add bends, vi­brato and as much feel as you can muster!
