EXAMPLE11 FULL STUDY - 4-PART ‘LOOP’ PIECE MOV­ING THROUGH THE STRING SETS

Guitar Techniques - - USER GUIDE -

SEC­TION A We set up our four-part loop-based piece with an arpeg­gio pat­tern sit­u­ated on string groups 4-6 and based around a sim­ple di­a­tonic se­quence us­ing a com­bi­na­tion of E Do­rian (E-F#-G-A-B-C#-D) and E nat­u­ral mi­nor (E-F#G-A-B-C-D) ideas. This con­cept con­tin­ues as each new part is in­tro­duced and is ef­fec­tively re­peated four times in to­tal.

SEC­TION B To pro­vide sonic and rhyth­mic con­trast, we in­tro­duce a heav­ier three-note power chord-based ideas here us­ing the same har­mony as above but with sim­pler and less dense voic­ings found on third to fifth strings, more ap­pro­pri­ate with higher gain set­tings. Again, this idea joins the loop and con­tin­ues un­til the end, re­peat­ing in to­tal three times.
