ExamplE1 I IV V Con­neC­tIons

Guitar Techniques - - LEARNING ZONE -

We be­gin our les­son by ex­plor­ing the con­nec­tions be­tween the 3rds and 7ths of a set of Dom­i­nant I-V-V chords, in this in­stance in the key of A (A7-D7-E7). This four-part study high­lights the semi­tone con­nec­tions be­tween th­ese guide tones when trav­el­ling from I7-IV7 (notes G-F and C#-C) and I7 to V7 (notes G to G# and C# to D). As the ex­am­ple un­folds we move from big six and five-note voic­ings, all the way down to Fred­die’s one-note ‘tenor’ counter melody choices.
