EXAMPLE 12 FINAL JAM
When you’re playing syncopated unison stabs (as in the intro here), keep your picking hand constantly moving in a down-up pattern. This will keep you locked into the groove and avoid any unwanted 'flams'. The melody is doubled on the horns so you’ll need to ensure that you play this nice and tight, observing note lengths throughout. The fast lick that’s squeezed between phrases in bar 18 is played using shape 3 of the C Pentatonic. Play this using your first and third fingers only, moving your third finger quickly up to the 17th fret for the high A note in bar 19.
