phil hilborne’s one-minute lick

Chro­matic Dom­i­nant Ar­peg­gio Lick

Guitar Techniques - - INTRO -

This lick is mainly based on a c-shape E7 chord with a lot of added chro­mati­cism. chro­mati­cism. You should no­tice how the chro­matic notes are used to con­nect chord tones through­out. Al­though this phrase uses lots of notes that are not ‘of­fi­cial’ scale notes, E Mixoly­dian (E-F#-G#-A-B-c#-D) still very

much out­lines the in­tended chord and is a great way of cre­at­ing colour in

your lines. It is pos­si­ble to play the en­tire first sec­tion all in the 4th po­si­tion and you are ob­vi­ously wel­come to do just that. How­ever, i per­son­ally pre­fer to use the fin­ger­ing in the no­ta­tion that uses only first, sec­ond and third fin­gers from the fourth string on­wards. Af­ter play­ing this, please do ex­per­i­ment with your own ideas as there are tons of other pos­si­bil­i­ties.
