I've got an RGT rhythm guitar book
that's just generally fun to play around with, but I've found the higher
level charts to sound like hot horseshit. Here's an example: in 4/4
F#7#9 / % / B7#9 / %
A7 / C#7#9 / F#7#9 / C#7b9
F#9 / B9 / F#9 / C#7#9
F#9 / A° / A7b9 / B°
B7b9 / C#° / C#7b5b9 / F#maj9
Is it basically just an etude?
It is described to be played 'in the style of jazz rock'.
I literally cannot think of a way for this to sound good playing full
chords, and only playing partial voicings sounds so much nicer. My go to method for ad hoc partial chords is to have on to the third,
extension, seventh and fifth In that order, by superimposing various
caged shapes on the board.
Is that good start? I've learnt those soprano-alto-tenor-bass four note voicings in all
positions, voicings and inversions, but they were mostly unplayable
garbage because the intervals were so tight.
How would I pay the above in a rock or fusion context? Power chords
below and a diad or single note line to fill out the chord tones?
lots of fun reharmonisation, having said that.
