Ex­am­plE BOWIE ACOUS­TIC STYLE

Guitar Techniques - - LEARNING ZONE -

[Bar 17] A clas­sic com­poser’s trick that made its way into Bowie’s writ­ing – the Ma­jor chord turn­ing into Mi­nor chord in the next bar. It’s a great de­vice and one that you should train your ears to hear. [Ba2r 2A3c]oTuh­sis­tic­gui­tar break will do won­ders for both your fret­ting and strum­ming hands. Firstly, it’s all barre chords so it will test the strength of your fret­ting hand and, se­condly, the rhythms need to be ac­cu­rate and tight on this sec­tion, es­pe­cially if you were play­ing in a band con­text and the rhythm sec­tion were wait­ing to come back in.
