EXAMPLE4 Track 4 – Dance PoP
The opening chords are relatively easy to play, but sound impressive when coupled with delay and ambience. Set the delay to a quarter-note pulse and plenty of repeats. Plucking these with the fingers makes it easy to achieve a uniform and precise attack. The funky ‘popping’ line in chorus 2 is constructed from F# Minor Pentatonic: F#-A-B-C#-E. The guitar solo was achieved by using the dotted eighth-note setting with one loud repeat. If you play what is in the tab or improvise on F# Natural Minor (F#-G#-A-B-C#D-E), an interesting sequencer-like effect is produced.
