Example6 Com­bined chord types in a mod­ern pro­gres­sion

Guitar Techniques - - LEARNING ZONE -

Make sure the top note of ev­ery chord is well de­fined, so the voice-lead­ing through the pro­gres­sion is clear. I played all the chords with ‘pick and fin­gers’ up un­til bar 9, where the ‘lazy spread chords’ were all econ­omy down strokes. This ex­am­ple is in the style of jazz gui­tarist Phil Upchurch, so use a warm jazzy tone.
