Ex­Am­plE Glen Camp­bell Solo

Guitar Techniques - - LESSON: ACOUSTIC -

[SAo­clou: 1] Camp­bell is a mas­ter at be­gin­ning his so­los with melodic frag­ments and this G ma­jor pen­ta­tonic lick is an ex­am­ple of how he will start with space and melody be­fore ex­plod­ing up the fret­board! [SAo­clou: 5] A great picker, this run is just an as­cend­ing G ma­jor scale but it’s typ­i­cal of Camp­bell’s coun­try/blue­grass ap­proach to solo­ing. [Solo: Bar 9] This phrase shows how he is al­ways aware of the un­der­ly­ing chord move­ment and crafts his solo ac­cord­ingly. Note how this mo­tif is de­vel­oped to ac­com­mo­date the changes in the A mi­nor chord through­out.
