EXAMPLES PLAYING TIPS
EXAMPLE 9 now, we start introducing string-skips. The passage in bar 33 (shape #3) is shifted laterally up the neck (to shape #4), where an equivalent series of notes is played within the scale. The line shifts to shape #5 in bars 35 and 36.
EXAMPLE 10 Here’s a similar approach to the previous example, only here the shapes are confined to just the fifth and third strings. It features the same sort of lateral movement, and the initial 13-note motif is modified as we shift up the neck to stay within the scale. Place everything that you play in some sort of visual context in relation to the underlying shapes of A dominant Pentatonic.
EXAMPLE 11 More of the same elements here (three-notes-per-string, tapping, string skips and lateral movement) only, this time, we are occupying the fourth and sixth strings. Here, we start in shape #3 and ascend. note that this example finishes off with a blues-style Minor Pentatonic phrase.
