Today we will look at 4 interesting concepts that Eric Johnson employs with his modern pentatonic guitar approach. We will concentrate on the major pentatonic in this blog.
Example 1 : Employing 5ths
The employment of perfect 5ths is a brilliant way to create a new and modern sound that adds spark and life into any dull overused pentatonic cliche’s.
Example 2: String Skipping:
This example employs the technique of skipping the strings to create a unique and fresh sounding guitar line that exploits the intervals.
Example 3: Rhythmic Displacement:
This line is really in groups of three, but the way the tetrachords/Cells [4 note groupings] work creates a rhythmic displacement that adds an interesting rhythmic forward momentum.
Example 4: Rhythmic displacement #2.
Lastly we have a five note grouping that once again exploits not only the pentatonic scale but also the rhythmical aspect of it. This in turn creates a brilliant original sounding rhythmic displaced line.
