EXAMPLE5 HOL­LY­WOOD FATS STYLE

Guitar Techniques - - PLAY -

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.
