Ex­am­ple 8 In­ter­val skips

cd track 83

Guitar Techniques - - LESSON: JAZZ -

Given as we know that Jim only uses down­strokes with his thumb, he sure can get around pretty swiftly, as this ex­am­ple ably demon­strates. Here he is us­ing in­ter­vals skips based around a two-note de­scend­ing pull- off bounc­ing be­tween a two-note as end­ing ham­mer- on pivot be­tween the notes E and F, the 2nd and b3rd of our cho­sen D mi­nor tonal­ity. In bars 3 and 4 we take a shift in the be­bop di­rec­tion with another pivot idea, although this time from the 5th (A) that al­lows us to use both ma­jor and mi­nor 7th (D# and D nat­u­ral) against our un­der­ly­ing D mi­nor 7th tonal­ity.
