EX­AM­PLES PLAY­ING TIPS

Guitar Techniques - - LEARNING ZONE -

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.
