Ex­am­ple5 Swing­ing jazz waltz mo­tifs

Guitar Techniques - - LEARNING ZONE -

This ex­am­ple per­fectly il­lus­trates just how com­fort­able Emily is with arpeg­gios. The de­scend­ing fig­ure of four notes, fol­lowed by an in­ter­val skip and a fur­ther two-note de­scent in bar 4 is re­peated three times in to­tal, al­though the notes are mod­i­fied to fol­low the un­der­ly­ing har­mony of Eb­maj7,

G7 and C mi­nor. There are a num­ber of pull-offs in this ex­am­ple, so the trick is to main­tain a con­sis­tent sense of tempo and groove when mix­ing pick­ing with a more legato-based ap­proach, where the ten­dency is of­ten to pick up speed.
