Ex­am­ple7 Solo chordal in­tro

Guitar Techniques - - INTRO -

EWe’re of­ten so en­chanted with Montgomery’s stag­ger­ing fa­cil­ity with oc­taves that we can com­pletely over­look his mas­tery with the tra­di­tional jazz gui­tar chord-melody ap­proach. This ex­am­ple has an ex­otic Phry­gian/Phry­gian Dom­i­nant feel (R-2- maj3-4-5- with its use of both E and F triads, also prov­ing that in the right hands ba­sic ma­jor and mi­nor triad can sound beau­ti­ful and so­phis­ti­cated. Let all chord tones ring as long as pos­si­ble and whilst the GT ex­am­ple is per­formed to a dis­tinct pulse, you can be much more ex­pres­sive and free with the rhythm and length of the notes.
