Ex­am­plE6 MA­JOR VARI­A­TIONS: MIXOLY­DIAN PENTATONIC

Guitar Techniques - - THEORY & TECHNIQUE -

Tak­ing F#-a#-B-C#-e as our ba­sic pat­tern (the back­ing riff also does this) we get a Jeff Beck, or ‘Gary Moore in his ‘70s fu­sion pe­riod’ ef­fect that is miles away from re­sults you would achieve us­ing a stan­dard Pentatonic pat­tern. some of the quicker pas­sages later in this ex­am­ple use econ­omy pick­ing brush­ing across ad­ja­cent strings to ar­tic­u­late pat­terns that would be un­wieldy with al­ter­nate pick­ing. You’ll have lots of fun with this one, but take your time.
