Short Melodic Sketch #14 - 4x4 (Offroad Pentatonics ii-V7-I) Modern Melodic Phrasing using Intervals of a 4th
In this short melodic exercise I present a phrase over a ii-V7-I progression in a major key which is constructed by mainly using perfect 4th intervals extracted from different minor pentatonic scales that work melodically over each one of the three harmonies.
Over the Dmin7 chord I am using the A minor pentatonic. Over the G7alt chord I am using the Bb minor pentatonic and over the tonic chord (Cmaj7) I am using the B minor pentatonic.
Playing fourths on the guitar at fast tempos presents quite a few technical challenges as such intervals are always located on top of each other on two adjacent strings. Their clean execution and tonal control is something that requires a lot of practice. So here I am sharing with all of you these lines that exemplify how I like to partition the pentatonic mode fingerings in fourths and where to position the notes on the fretboard.
Hope you enjoy it!
