Guitar Techniques - - LEARNING ZONE -

[Bars 10-13] There’s a neat ‘five against three’ group­ing to the Pen­ta­tonic line in bar 10, fol­lowed by a de­scend­ing ma­jor 7th in­ter­val­lic melodic cell in mi­nor 3rds against d7#9 de­rived once again from Half-Whole. Hen­der­son is a master at bal­anc­ing lan­guage from op­po­site ends of the spec­trum, so in bars 12-13 we see a ba­sic Pen­ta­tonic line an­swered with hip d7 Al­tered phrase based around the two ma­jor tri­ads that in­habit the Al­tered scale from the and b6th (Ab Bb de­grees and re­spec­tively). [Bars 14-17] Our sec­ond cho­rus kicks off with a G9#11 arpeg­gio straight out of (r-2-3-#4-5-6-b7), the ly­dian dom­i­nant mode fol­lowed by more con­ven­tional chord tone-based ideas.
