Acoustic Jazz Guitar Technique by John McCarthy
Let’s incorporate some acoustic techniques together. This is a jazz progression using the four major seventh and minor seventh chords shown in the frames. Follow the finger-picking symbols below the staff (p-i-m-a) and slap the muted (X’d) notes with your thumb where indicated. There are also some melodic bass notes in between the chords to make the progression swing. The timing of this particular exercise is in 6/8, counted in threes (one-two-three-one-two-three).
