MODAL BLUES EX­AM­PLE 5 MA­JOR 7b 5 CHORDS IN A CON­TEM­PO­RARY

Guitar Techniques - - LESSON -

To help you get used to any new chord vari­ant it’s re­ally help­ful to hear it ‘chang­ing and mov­ing’ around a tra­di­tional I-IV-V blues pro­gres­sion with a clear chord path­way – not too many chord re-voic­ings. These can al­ways be added later. This con­tem­po­rary modal blues is based on the close con­nec­tion be­tween the three (III) chord Gm7, and the four (IV) chord A maj7 5 in the key of E . The maj7 5 chords us­ing shapes 1 and 4 are the fo­cus here. Bar 9 fea­tures a run­down of maj7 5 chords: E maj7 5, D maj7 5, Bmaj7 5, Amaj7 5 be­fore set­tling back to the root, A maj7 5.
