Example4 Funky melody-in­ter­val-chord com­bi­na­tions

Guitar Techniques - - LEARNING ZONE -

There’s a def­i­nite John Scofield in­flu­ence here, in both the rhyth­mic choices and the com­bi­na­tion of small chord voic­ings and the use of the 7th in­ter­val in bars 2 and 3, both as small chord frag­ments and as in­de­pen­dent melodic in­ter­vals. For the chords I used just the pick, while for the string-skipped 7ths in bar 2 I opted to do as Oz would and go for a hy­brid (pick and fin­gers) ap­proach. No­tice how Noy out­lines each of the chords suc­cinctly with a choice se­lec­tion of ap­pro­pri­ate chord tones and nails all of the changes with fluid ease. Again con­fi­dence and de­liv­ery are your al­lies here.
