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

Guitar Techniques - - USER GUIDE -

SEC­TION C Mov­ing down an­other string set, we clean things up and switch to fin­ger­style. It’s the same har­mony but ex­ploit­ing closer voice lead­ing to min­imise the move­ment within string groups 2-4. Again, this then joins the loop and you’ll end up hear­ing this idea twice be­fore we end.

SEC­TION D We con­clude with a sin­gle-note melodic idea based on a com­bi­na­tion of arpeg­gios, bends and ham­mers found within the range of the top three strings. You can boost the gain here and, nat­u­rally, this is just one ex­am­ple of what you could play. By all means use the un­der­ly­ing parts as your im­pro­vi­sa­tional back­ing and play what­ever and wher­ever you like. Although it’s a good idea, ini­tially at least, to stay close to the har­mony so make sure you can con­nect all the arpeg­gios along the high­est strings with con­fi­dence and au­thor­ity. These ideas can add a whole new as­pect to your vo­cab­u­lary.
