In our previous lesson (March 2017), I offered an original jazz solo, a significant part of which features the use of what’s called a minor add2 (or minor add9) arpeggio.
From “Dazed and Confused” to “Achilles Last Stand” … from “Heartbreaker” to “Ten Years Gone” … Guitar World presents a critical analysis of the classic-rock group’s best tracks.
The Asus4b2 arpeggio we looked at last month (November 2017 issue) may be repurposed in a variety of cool, interesting ways, which I think is a worthwhile topic to explore.
As a chord reference,FIGURE 1illustrates some finger-friendly Asus4b2 grips on the top four stings, with the open A string included and the first shape additionally shown 12 frets higher.
The term “French horn fifths” is a partial misnomer, as intervals other than fifths are also used, namely thirds, fourths and sixths.
Last month, I offered a guitar adaptation of the theme from The Walking Dead, which is based on a repeating melody built from a minor add-9, or minor add-2, arpeggio.
