Ex­am­ple 9 Half-Time funk

cd track 85

Guitar Techniques - - LESSON: JAZZ -

Our fi­nal ex­am­ple re­turns to the one- chord static modal side of Jim’s solo­ing style, although this time we’re in a mi­nor Do­rian tonal­ity (R-2-b3- 4-5- 6-b7), Cm6 to be pre­cise (C- Eb- G-A). Again, the Blues scale makes an ap­pear­ance (C- Eb- F- Gb- G- Bb) and the phrase is full of ham­mer- ons, pull- offs and slides. Fur­ther ev­i­dence of Mullen’s hy­brid jazz/blues style is found in the bends, al­beit semi­tone – but bends nonethe­less.
