Guitar Techniques - - LESSON|LEARNING ZONE -

in stark con­trast to all that Pen­ta­tonic shenani­gans, there’s noth­ing like a bit of Whole-tone ac­tion to put a spring in your step. This ex­am­ple be­gins with

(r-2-3-#4-#5-b7) B Whole-tone against our har­mon­i­cally ap­pro­pri­ate B9#11. We can’t stay away from Pen­ta­tonic for very long, how­ever, with F ma­jor Pen­ta­tonic (F-G-A-C-d) used against its as­so­ci­ated ma­jor chord. in­trigu­ingly,

db lang moves on to ex­ploit the whole tones found in Mixoly­dian, namely the

to-b7, in­ter­vals 3-2, 2-root and root be­fore con­clud­ing with some wide-spaced in­ter­vals, a touch of blues and a beau­ti­ful arpeg­gio idea in the home key of F.
