EXAMPLE9 BLUESY LINES WITH CHORD-FRAG­MENT PUNC­TU­A­TION

Guitar Techniques - - LEARNING ZONE -

Philip’s play­ing is of­ten bluesy and filled with ex­pres­sion, so here we see how he might ap­proach play­ing through a se­ries of mostly non-di­a­tonic chords with a sense of melody and feel. He jux­ta­poses this melodic ac­tion with some well-po­si­tioned chord frag­ments, rather like the way that a big band might ar­range for en­sem­ble stabs to an­swer sin­gle-note lines from within the com­plete en­sem­ble.
