EX­AM­PLE6 blues

Guitar Techniques - - USER GUIDE -

Here’s an ex­am­ple of how tap­ping can pro­vide a chord ac­com­pa­ni­ment for a 12-bar blues. The first 12 bars are played us­ing tapped dou­ble-stops, which fol­low what should be fa­mil­iar chord shapes. The sec­ond 12 bars show how you can move the tapped notes to play dif­fer­ent voic­ings. Fi­nally, the third 12 bars demon­strate how a sim­ple tri­tone can be moved to play all the chords in a blues pro­gres­sion, while the fret­ting hand pro­vides a walk­ing bassline.
