PHIL HIL­BORNE’S ONE-MINUTE LICK

Mi­nor Add9 Ar­peg­gio Lick

Guitar Techniques - - INTRO -

This month’s lick uses notes from a D Mi­nor add9 ar­peg­gio - D-F-A-E. This sort of idea can be used in any style, al­though in jazz and blues it would prob­a­bly be ap­pro­pri­ate to ‘swing’ the phras­ing. It’s sur­pris­ing how much the ad­di­tion of that one note can make. It turns a hum­ble Mi­nor ar­peg­gio

into some­thing a lot more in­ter­est­ing and so­phis­ti­cated. Tech­ni­cally, there isn’t that much to worry about here – just make sure you fol­low the pick­ing and palm mut­ing in­di­ca­tions and keep the tim­ing as met­ri­cal as pos­si­ble. As al­ways, try to com­pose sim­i­lar phrases of your own us­ing the same con­cept. The same ideas will also work with Ma­jor add 9 arpeg­gios (1-3-5-9) and th­ese are well worth spend­ing time ex­plor­ing.
