EX­AM­PLE JACK JOHNSON STYLE

cd track 67

Guitar Techniques - - LEARNING ZONE -

[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.
