EXAMPLE5 HOLLYWOOD FATS STYLE
Carefully controlled fingering is required to shift seamlessly between solo licks and the low boogie riffs in bars 1, 3, 7 and 8. Shifting to third position after the opening pick-up lick avoids the use of open strings and keeps the F boogie riff tight and controlled. The use of a double chromatic approach to the tonic major third (A) in bar 13 highlights the 13th of the V7 chord. This is followed by an answering phrase that outlines the root (B) and 13th (G) of the chord.
