Ex­am­ple JOAN BAEZ STYLE ...CON­TIN­UED

Guitar Techniques - - LEARNING ZONE -

[Bar 17] This dark melodic fig­ure again hints at the Span­ish or fla­menco sound that is un­der­ly­ing in some of Baez’s writ­ing and play­ing – al­though not overtly so, a def­i­nite latin el­e­ment is dis­cernible.

[Bar 27] al­though not typ­i­cally found in this key (e mi­nor/G ma­jor), the Fmaj7 is a use­ful pass­ing chord and high­lights the more so­phis­ti­cated style of song­writ­ing that doesn’t al­ways fol­low the clas­sic folk/coun­try/blues i-iv-v route.
