EXAMPLE10 JAZZ – VOICE-LEAD­ING CHORDS AND GUIDE-TONE SOLO­ING LINES (2-4)

Guitar Techniques - - USER GUIDE -

You can con­vey a huge amount of har­monic con­tent suc­cinctly, if you pick the cor­rect notes and you ex­plore the con­nec­tions be­tween these chord tones as the har­mony shifts within a se­quence. This Bb jazz-blues based ex­am­ple demon­strates this point per­fectly. What­ever we do with chords, we can echo with arpeg­gios and as­so­ci­ated em­bel­lished lines, so we fin­ish what we’ve started with the same pro­gres­sion ex­pressed as stylis­ti­cally ap­pro­pri­ate sin­glenote lines us­ing a com­bi­na­tion of chord tones and neigh­bour­ing dec­o­ra­tive pass­ing tones.
