EXAMPLE4 Track 4 – Dance PoP

Guitar Techniques - - INTRO -

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.
