EXAMPLE7 FU­SION – PEN­TA­TONIC/QUAR­TAL VOIC­INGS AND GAMBALE-STYLE SWEEPS (2- 4/1-3)

Guitar Techniques - - USER GUIDE -

Chords based upon 4ths, or de­rived from three-string frag­ments of the Mi­nor Pen­ta­tonic (R-b3-4-5-b7) pro­vide the fu­sion-based ex­am­ples be­low. We switch be­tween as­cend­ing A Mi­nor Pen­ta­tonic voic­ings and a ten­sion and re­lease de­scend­ing pair of shapes that con­tains a sta­tion­ary high tone held against a pair of chro­mat­i­cally de­scend­ing 4ths. We round this ex­am­ple off with sweep­ing ideas de­rived from an­other de­scend­ing fig­ure, based around a pat­tern in which the high­est note fol­lows A Mi­nor Pen­ta­tonic and moves in par­al­lel down the fret­board in a style fre­quently em­ployed by Frank Gambale.
