EXAMPLE8 DeMO sOlO 2
Again, designed primarily to demo the shapes, this example is stylistically more aggressive and rhythmically a little more adventurous with its triplets and dotted/swung rhythms. Bar 2 really nails those quaver triplets, then doubling up to groups of six between bars 3 and 4. Bars 5 and 6 put the emphasis on7ascending groups of five. note bar 9’s economy picked groups of four (which is actually based around Shape 1 E minor Pentatonic, fitting with the underlying E chord). Bars 11-12 feature some angular 4ths, played in groups of three, leading to Shape 1 A minor Pentatonic descending in groups of four as sextuplets. it’s this playing ‘across the beat’ that can make what is essentially a simple idea sound very swish.
