EX­AM­PLE COM­BINED BE­BOP AND BLUES LINES

Guitar Techniques - - LEARNING ZONE -

Our fi­nal ex­am­ple con­sol­i­dates a num­ber of the ap­proaches we’ve seen, such as funky and bluesy bend­ing and Pen­ta­tonic ideas in B mi­nor, jux­ta­posed with more be­bop ori­en­tated ae­o­lian lines (B-C#-d-e-F#-G-a), with chro­matic dec­o­ra­tion and em­bel­lish­ment. again, rémy is selec­tive with which chords de­mand his at­ten­tion, al­low­ing the B m7 pass­ing chord to go by un­touched but re­solv­ing this slight and tran­sient ten­sion with great author­ity and com­mand with a pair of choice blues bends in bar 4, lead­ing us log­i­cally to a su­per-strong res­o­lu­tion square on the down­beat of bar 5.
