EX­AM­PLE 2 MI­NOR VARI­A­TIONS: NO 4TH/ADD 2

Cd track 6

Guitar Techniques - - THEORY & TECHNIQUE -

Bb C-d-eb-G Tak­ing and as our (al­most) ex­clu­sive vo­cab­u­lary, this ex­am­ple su­per­im­poses a few ideas over a mi­nor blues. This doesn’t sound like we’ve gone straight into the de­fault C Mi­nor Pentatonic, be­cause we’re omit­ting the 4th (F) most of the time and lean­ing much more heav­ily on the d, which func­tions as a melodic 2nd or 9th, de­pend­ing how you view it. Omit­ting one note from a scale is in it­self a great way to freshen things up - try it.
