EX­AM­PLE 1 MI­NOR VARI­A­TIONS: DO­RIAN PENTATONIC

Cd track 4

Guitar Techniques - - THEORY & TECHNIQUE -

swap­ping for a ma­jor 6th to cre­ate a do­rian sound. This ex­am­ple leans heav­ily on that F# (6th in the key of a). I’ve tried to avoid fall­ing into ha­bit­ual licks here, in­stead go­ing for a more in­ter­val­lic, an­gu­lar sound. some of the quicker pas­sages are less in­tu­itive than your av­er­age Pentatonic solo, but I be­lieve that’s why we’re here! even in this first ex­am­ple we can see the po­ten­tial in ‘twist­ing’ what were oth­er­wise ‘av­er­age’ licks into be­ing some­thing a bit more spe­cial.
