ExAmplE4 jazzy comp us­inG thirds

Guitar Techniques - - LESSON: R&B -

Di­a­tonic 3rds (us­ing only notes from the key you’re play­ing in) are very ef­fec­tive when used to cre­ate riffs over chord changes. You’ll need to en­sure that you only sound the notes in­di­cated - this is es­pe­cially im­por­tant when pick­ing notes out of a chord shape (ie the A ma­jor shape in bar 1); don’t fret all the notes just those shown, re­leas­ing fret­ting pres­sure be­tween dou­ble stops to pre­vent the notes ring­ing into each other.
