EXAMPLES MIXOLYDIAN 5THS
Exam ple 1 In bar 3, descending 5ths are taken down through A Mixolydian within one scale shape and neck area (vertical motion).
Exam ple 2 In bar 11, ascending 5ths are taken up through the scale by moving along the length of the neck (lateral motion)
Exam ple 3 This example demonstrates a variety of approaches: stacked 5ths are employed within bar 17, whereas bar 19 features six-note motifs (each comprising two ascending 5ths and one descending 5ths linked via slides) taken laterally up through the scale. Finally, in bar 20, we see a succession of ascending 5ths employing pull-offs: finishing off with some 5ths that feature slides and lateral motion on the top two strings.
