EXAMPLE JACK JOHNSON STYLE
cd track 67
[Bar 29] Although the rhythms are the same now, the Minor chords are played as m7ths, which adds a bit of variety to things: this is always useful when repeating sections and the m7 itself is more ‘airy’ and a little bluesier.
[Bar 33 ]This simple sequence is another example of how Johnson builds riffs by moving chord shapes around an open string (in this case the fourth string). Pete Townshend is another player who uses this ploy to great effect.
