7b5 Example5 Com­bined and 7#5 Chords in a Bouncy Shuf­fle Blues

Guitar Techniques - - LEARNING ZONE -

Here we have a tight, bouncy shuf­fle that has a hint of Killer Joe changes (Dom­i­nant chords mov­ing down and back a tone) mov­ing through a mod­ern 7b5 blues us­ing and 7#5 voic­ings. This could eas­ily be a funk, R&B or jazz 7b5 pro­gres­sion as well. The handy first po­si­tion is used in bars 1, 8 and 12. The 7#5 chords are: S1 high vari­a­tion in bar 3, S1 in bar 8 and S3 in bars 5 and 11. Use a clean, warm tone to help the voic­ings be balanced and clear.
