GEN­ERAL Play­ing tiPs

Guitar Techniques - - LEARNING ZONE -

When work­ing through the ex­am­ples, re­fer to the di­a­gram be­low which con­tains the five CaGed shapes of a Mixoly­dian. We are go­ing to stay within one area of the neck (within one scale shape), al­though later on in this se­ries we’ll look at shift­ing lat­er­ally along the neck. In the back­ing track, a bridge part was in­serted just to make it less mo­not­o­nous. The chord names may look a bit scary (Gmaj7 [no 5th]/e5-F#m7 (no 5th)/e5-dmaj7 (no 5th)/e5-C#m7 (no 5th)/ e5]; how­ever, every note of th­ese four bridge chords is to be found within a Mixoly­dian, so you can con­tinue to play a Mixoly­dian through­out. Fi­nally, all of the ex­am­ples have been given a bluesy end­ing, just to give you an idea of how the two ap­proaches (tri­ads and blues) can be forged to­gether.
