Guitar Techniques - - LESSON: JAZZ -

do#n’t #nec­es­sar­ily You need to play chords with huge num­bers af­ter them to sound so­phis­ti­cated, as the open­ing bars of this ex­am­ple in E ably demon­strates. W4e get a lit­tle m5ore har­mon­i­cally in­volved in bars 5 and 6 with a com­bi­nat5ion of #11 and5#9 voic­ings. The re­ally clever part is in the

Ocom­bi­na­tion of open first-string melody with de­scend­ing 3rd and 7th guide tones on the third and fourth strings. Re­mem­ber, Ted likes to de­tune, so be on the look­out for open strings if you at­tempt to tran­scribe any­thing from Solo Guitar as the tun­ing makes a big dif­fer­ence in terms of playa­bil­ity.
