EX­AM­PLE John Den­VeR StYLe ...CON­TIN­UED

Guitar Techniques - - LESSON: ACOUSTIC -

[Bar 17] Break­ing away from the open chord shapes briefly th­ese types of fills are very com­mon. Based around 6th in­ter­vals it’s a great way to cre­ate some tem­po­rary move­ment and break up po­ten­tially plod­ding chords. [Bar 20] Aim to let the last two notes in this bar (5th fret, third string and 3rd fret, sec­ond string) ring to­gether to achieve a fuller sound. [Bar 28] An­other clas­sic song­writer’s trick here. Although we have been play­ing A mi­nor chords all the way through we briefly in­ject A7 in this bar (sec­ondary dom­i­nant: A7 is the V of D, which is the V of G ma­jor). This is a great de­vice to catch the ear and can be used in sev­eral ways. Here it is just giv­ing a twist be­fore re­turn­ing to the regular A mi­nor in the en­su­ing bar.
