EX­AM­PLE JAM TRACK TWO - BLUES JAZZ

Guitar Techniques - - PLAY | TECHNIQUE -

Cho­rus 1 [Bars 1-17] Our se­cond jam track has an up­beat tempo so we can use a more stripped back ap­proach to the chords. To get that modern jazz style sound the chords are harmonised in 4ths where pos­si­ble. This pro­vides a dense har­mony with the 9th, 11th and 13th in­ter­vals present, thus out­lin­ing the Dorian sound. The part sounds ef­fec­tive but is rel­a­tively easy to play due to the fin­ger­ings used. Here a plec­trum strum­ming tech­nique was em­ployed, but finger­style would be just as ef­fec­tive so feel free to ex­per­i­ment. A two-bar drum break takes us into the solo.
