EX­AM­PLES PLAY­ING TIPS

Guitar Techniques - - LEARNING ZONE -

EX­AM­PLE 6 I was tempted to leave this ex­am­ple to­wards the end it’s four-notes-per-string; but some of the fol­low­ing three-note ex­am­ples are more dif­fi­cult, or fea­ture tap­ping or string skips. Play­ing four-notes-per-string re­quires you to si­mul­tanously vi­su­alise three CAGED shapes; a great way of un­lock­ing the fret­board. Bar 22, fea­tures a chro­matic G# to bridge be­tween the A and G notes. EX­AM­PLE 7 Although three-notes-per-string (again, strad­dling shape #4 and be­tween #5), this ex­am­ple fea­tures an in­tri­cate in­ter­play fret­ting- and pick­ing-hand tap­ping typ­i­cal of Greg Howe. EX­AM­PLE 8 Ba­si­cally, the Greg Howe-style as­cend­ing se­quence in this ex­am­ple rep­re­sents the as­cend­ing equiv­a­lent of the one in the pre­vi­ous ex­am­ple.
