EX­AM­PLE1 SoLo 1

Guitar Techniques - - LESSON: BLUES -

Our first ex­am­ple draws heav­ily from phrases found within G mi­nor Pen­ta­tonic (G-Bb-C-D-F), C mi­nor Pen­ta­tonic (C-Eb-F-G-Bb) and Bb mi­nor Pen­ta­tonic (Bb-Db-Eb-F-Ab). Buddy tends to keep it sim­ple, fo­cus­ing on tra­di­tional blues vo­cab­u­lary (Pen­ta­ton­ics and Blues scale with added b5), but it’s his ex­pres­sive use of bends and slides, and a fairly manic vi­brato, that pro­vides his unique per­son­al­ity.
