Ex­am­plE7 MA­JOR VARI­A­TIONS: MIXOLY­DIAN V2 PART 1

Guitar Techniques - - THEORY & TECHNIQUE -

Mov­ing to G Ma­jor, our ba­sic pat­tern is G-a-B-d-F. This short but sweet ex­am­ple takes its cues from some of Hen­drix’s ‘Cur­tis May­field’ rhythm ideas, group­ing ad­ja­cent strings to cre­ate dou­ble-stop pat­terns. The F nat­u­ral might not sound ‘cor­rect’ to more con­ser­va­tive ears, but that’s part of its charm.
