Example4 II V melodic mo­tif in semi­tones

Guitar Techniques - - LEARNING ZONE -

We de­velop the mo­tific as­pects of Remler’s play­ing fur­ther in this ex­am­ple. No­tice how she ar­tic­u­lates the II-Vs in bars 6-9 with ex­actly the same phrase trans­posed down in semi­tones. Rep­e­ti­tion of this na­ture should not be avoided. In fact, re­peat­ing ideas, ei­ther whole phrases or just small frag­ments

Ecre­ates a log­i­cal sense of co­he­sion and al­lows the lis­tener to en­ter into the thought process of the im­pro­viser. So with this in mind you should aim to in­cor­po­rate el­e­ments of melodic, rhyth­mic or in­ter­val­lic devel­op­ment and rep­e­ti­tion wher­ever pos­si­ble.
