EXAMPLE GEORGE HARRISON STYLE
[Bar 1] Although not exclusive to George this bass and strumming is a great thing to have in your arsenal, as it mimics a pianist’s left and right hand.
[Bar 3] Our first ‘unexpected’ chord is this C# Diminished 7th that really adds some colour to the sound and gets you out of the standard, predictable chord progressions so common to pop music of this era. [Bar 7] Another Diminished 7th to catch the ear. note that this shape moves up in minor 3ds but always contains the same notes, so an E Diminished 7th Bb chord is also a C# Diminished 7th, G Diminished 7th and Diminished 7th. You can see the effect of moving this chord up in bar 12. [Bar 16] A very Beatles-esque pause on this Am10 chord!
