ExamplE2 rocky e mi­nor blues vamp

Guitar Techniques - - LEARNING ZONE -

Based on an em vamp again we are us­ing the Mi­nor Pen­ta­tonic (e-G-A-B-D) to GUITAR TECH­NIQUES 2 7 3 nav­i­gate our way through this study. We start off con­fi­dent with a whole-tone b7th bend catch­ing the (D) while still hold­ing the bend. in bar 2 we are back to sin­gle-note lines with a sub­tle quar­ter-tone bend giv­ing us blues tex­ture in a rock­ier con­text. Bars 2-6 con­tain large reg­is­ter jumps show­ing how Jim­mie likes to cre­ate two sep­a­rate voices on the guitar, which help with the con­cept of call and re­sponse. Bars 9-10 are yet an­other great ex­am­ple of how Jim­mie em­ploys the quar­ter-note triplet when hold­ing an idea for a bar or more.
