Example 1


BEGINNING WITH SOME CLASSIC ‘BLUES’ DOUBLESTOP­S, mixed with some ringing open-position shape 1 pentatonic, this idea is about setting the stage and establishi­ng a context. Even the least musically knowledgea­ble listener will appreciate being given a context, and in these early bars of the piece it might be best to ‘keep your powder dry’, until some collective momentum has been gathered! I’m trying to demonstrat­e several ideas here, but why not play very sparsely and see how that feels, too?
