Ex­am­ple5 ‘Wider’ open chords in a fu­sion groove

Guitar Techniques - - INTRO -

Bb- Us­ing the quar­tal shapes of G Do­rian (G-A- C-D-E-F) with some op­tional lower bass notes for har­monic di­rec­tion makes this ex­am­ple slightly dis­so­nant. Leave the lower notes out for a cleaner sound over a G mi­nor groove or riff. No­tice the fin­ger­ings in Ex 1 that favour a first, dou­ble-stop sec­ond and fourthfin­ger hand shape for a fast-mov­ing and flex­i­ble jazz block chord play­ing style. Great for play­ing high and fast on the neck – think Wes or Ge­orge Benson.
