Example5 Swinging jazz waltz motifs
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.
