EXAMPLE5 JIMI/JAMES – MA­JOR PEN­TA­TONIC AND SLASH CHORDS (3-5/1-3)

Guitar Techniques - - USER GUIDE -

The in­spi­ra­tion be­hind these pair of ex­am­ples are the gui­tarists Jimi Hen­drix and James Tay­lor and while on the face of it they may not seem to bear too may close sim­i­lar­i­ties, closer in­spec­tion re­veals some con­nec­tions in the way that they em­bel­lish ba­sic Ma­jor chords us­ing the Ma­jor Pen­ta­tonic scale (R-2-3-5-6), and how they might add or­na­men­ta­tion to three-string triad frag­ments, sit­u­ated on the first to third strings.
