EXAMPLE1 BLUES STYLE RHYTHM

Guitar Techniques - - PLAY -

let’s start in fa­mil­iar ter­ri­tory with some blues ac­tion. All of our ex­am­ples are eight bars long, but it makes sense here to ex­tend that to the oblig­a­tory 12 bars. This first rhythm ex­am­ple uses sim­ple dou­ble-stops to out­line the Dom­i­nant 7 flavour. These are sim­ple to play with down strums and are aug­mented with the wah­wah pedal. Con­cen­trate on con­sis­tency of the tim­ing and dy­nam­ics here, and get the ‘sound’ of Mixoly­dian em­bed­ded in your mu­si­cal mem­ory.
