L L LL L L5-NoTe STRING-pAIR CeLLS
exAmpLe 10 Now for the first of two examples in which the five-note stringpair cell follows a 5-0 note-configuration. This particular cell comprises the same notes as Ex8 moving in an ascending sequence and, again, is treated differently in each oc tave. exAmpLe 11 Here, we’re using the same cell as in Ex10 on each string pair; only this time in a descending sequence. Once again, the cell is treated differently in each octave.
L L LL L L LL L LexAmpLe 12 This final example features a five -note string-pair cell that follows a 0-5 note-configuration. The cell is treated the same in each octave, and is played using a combination of fretting-hand legato and picking-hand taps with slides. The octaves at the very end of this line are just one example of how these cells can be integrated with other techniques in order to create well-balanced musical results. As I mentioned in the main body copy, the whole point of learning any technique is to be expressive with it.
