BRUCE WELCH RHYTHM STYLE: FRE­NETIC STRUM­MING

cd track 7

Guitar Techniques - - INSTRUMENTALS -

At 150 bpm this ex­am­ple re­quires some deft strum­ming work to play the 16thnote rhythms, so it’s im­por­tant to use 16th-note al­ter­nate pick­ing through­out. To fa­cil­i­tate seam­less chord changes the fi­nal chord (or two chords when play­ing 16ths) in each bar should be sus­pended and re­placed with open strings. The har­monic struc­ture of this ex­am­ple is based on di­a­tonic chords from both d ma­jor and d mi­nor keys, cre­at­ing a cool and au­then­tic 60s vibe.
