EX­AM­PLE 6 MI­NOR PEN­TA­TONIC SU­PER­IM­PO­SI­TION

TRACK 14

Guitar Techniques - - PLAY: ROCK -

This ex­am­ple is typ­i­cal of how Car­los fre­quently su­per­im­posed the rel­a­tive mi­nor Pen­ta­tonic over a ma­jor chord pro­gres­sion. In this ex­am­ple E mi­nor Pen­ta­tonic is used ex­ten­sively over the G ma­jor chord pro­gres­sion. No­tice how each phrase re­solves to a chord tone of Am; he doesn’t blindly force the scale over the chords. The first four bars are played in shape one of the scale, shift­ing up an oc­tave to the 12th fret at the end of bar 4 – ex­am­ples of oc­tave po­si­tion shift­ing are very com­mon in Car­los’s ear­lier play­ing style.
