EX­AM­PLE 1 SOLO 1 - BLUESY LICKS WITH REP­E­TI­TION AND BENDS

Guitar Techniques - - LEARNING ZONE | FRANKMARINO -

This study is based on the A Mi­nor Pen­ta­tonic scale (A-C-D-E-G) but dips into Blues scale ter­ri­tory with the ad­dtion of an E, note (5) in bar 11. Marino tended to ex­plore other colours beyond the Pen­ta­tonic and of­ten did so by bend­ing from a note within the scale. This is dis­played with bar 13 as we bend from the note e to F#, which is the 5th de­gree to the 6th. The rep­e­ti­tion found in bars 9 and 10 pulls us into psy­che­delic ter­ri­tory. To make this a lit­tle bit more ‘trippy’ you could try adding some mod­u­la­tion ef­fects such as ro­tovibe.
