Guitar Techniques - - LEARNING ZONE -

Cho­rus 1 [Bars 1-18]

The back­ing track opens with a two-bar per­cus­sion in­tro and allen starts his solo with some nat­u­ral har­mon­ics. Pull up on the vi­brato arm to play the pitches no­tated in the tab. The syn­co­pated (off-beat) semi-quaver phrases may take some get­ting use to and play­ing the phrases

(d-eb-F-F#-ab-Bb-C) ac­cu­rately will cer­tainly be a chal­lenge. The d al­tered scale used in bar 18 pro­vides a lovely tran­si­tion back into the G ma­jor chord. Be sure to study the video for fur­ther clar­ity on fin­ger­ings and ar­tic­u­la­tions. and take heed of allen’s own spo­ken thoughts and sug­ges­tions af­ter his video solo.
