Guitar Techniques - - PLAY | PENTATONIC -

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.
