ExamplE8 cyclic changes back to mi­nor

Guitar Techniques - - LESSON -

Here we see a cyclic se­quence based on 4th in­ter­vals lead­ing us back to our home tonal­ity d mi­nor. a7-d7-G7-C7-F7-B maj7 are all a 4th apart, whereas e is a di­a­tonic 4th away and this leads us via a mi­nor ii-v-i (em7 5-a7-dm) back home to d Mi­nor. If you look care­fully you’ll spot lots of an­tic­i­pa­tion, as Louis does this a lot. again, there’s a var­ied pre­sen­ta­tion of ham­mer-ons, pull-offs and slides here to help make the lines sound less like melodic ex­er­cises and more like mu­sic.
