ExamplE1 Question & Answer with the bAss through chAnges
cd track 47
Jim’s duo recordings with ron Carter are a masterclass in interplay, taste and musicality. This example shows how both guitar and double bass support and instigate in equal measure. There are quite a few long notes here and these are used to create space and a clear sense of question and answer. i’d suggest taking the time to investigate the intervallic relationship between the principle melody notes and the underlying harmony.
