Ex­am­ple8 In­tel­li­gent Bossa voic­ings with chro­matic voice lead­ing

Guitar Techniques - - LEARNING ZONE -

The ef­fec­tive­ness of a chord se­quence can be greatly-in­flu­enced by in­tel­li­gent se­lec­tion of ap­pro­pri­ate and in­ven­tive chord voic­ings. This pro­gres­sion, out­lin­ing the II7 (A7), IV7 (D7), II7 (G7), V7 (C7), I (F), uses voice lead­ing (where notes in the mov­ing chords cre­ate their own melody) to pro­duce a de­scend­ing

Echro­matic line through the changes, pro­vid­ing co­he­sion and lead­ing the lis­tener through the changes in or­der to pro­vide a nat­u­ral sense of res­o­lu­tion. Keep your eyes on the sec­ond string and no­tice how each event is con­nected with move­ments of no greater than one fret at a time.
