ExamplE2 three-note II V I Con­neC­tIons

Guitar Techniques - - LEARNING ZONE -

XXXXXXXXHere we see a sim­i­lar study that ex­plores the 3rd/7th and 7th/3rd voice lead­ing in what is prob­a­bly the most com­mon sequence in jazz, the II-V-I. No­tice how we aim to keep the low­est note on the sixth string, pro­duc­ing what we might think of as in­ver­sions for many of th­ese voic­ings, but re­mem­ber that the bass player will fre­quently can­cel th­ese bass note choices out by se­lect­ing the fun­da­men­tal (root note) for each chord on beats 1 and 3 of each bar. As with all ex­am­ples, make sure your mut­ing is up to scratch so that we only hear the notes se­lected and ab­so­lutely no open strings.
