EX­AM­PLE GE­ORGE HAR­RI­SON STYLE

Guitar Techniques - - LEARNING ZONE -

[Bar 18] Guitarists from the ‘50s and ‘60s would play this FMaj7 voic­ing by hooking the fret­ting hand thumb over the top of the neck to fret the 1st fret of the sixth string. It’s a great way of keep­ing the open first string clear so you get that lovely FMaj7 sound. In­deed, you’ll hear it in play­ers from other gen­res too. Chet Atkins used this shape a lot, as did David Bowie.

[Bar 23] Another song­writ­ing trick used by Ge­orge but cer­tainly not ex­clu­sive to him – the Iv Ma­jor chord (C) briefly chang­ing to a dom­i­nant (C7) be­fore re­vert­ing to the I chord (G).
