Guitar Techniques - - INTRO -

EOne prac­ti­cal and clear ap­pli­ca­tion of slash chords is when an up­per chord re­mains static and a bassline moves, thus ‘re­colour­ing’ the up­per chord. Ex­am­ples abound in pop and rock mu­sic from The Bea­tles – Dear Pru­dence, Oa­sis – Cham­pagne Su­per­nova to the open­ing of The Po­lice’s – Ev­ery Lit­tle Thing She Does Is Magic. (The lat­ter fea­tur­ing a ris­ing Ly­dian bassline un­der a static top chord).
