3-Note Sequence Ideas – Part II

3-Note Sequence Ideas – Part II
By Paul Tauterouff

In this lesson we are going to combine the forward and reverse three-note sequence combinations from my Three-Note Sequence Ideas Part I lesson to create even more interesting sounds.

If you have not read that lesson, I recommend reviewing it here:  http://www.insaneguitar.com/column/paul-tauterouff/3-note-sequences before trying these examples.

Example One alternates between typical three-note groupings and the reversed three-note sequence from Part I. I know it sounds complicated at first, but it’s pretty easy to grasp once you play through it a few times.

Example Two is the descending version of Example One. I think it has a fun “Irish” sort of sound to it!

Example Three switches the order of things – here we play the reversed three-note grouping first and then alternate between it and the typical grouping. This is really unique sounding!

Example Four is the descending version of Example Three. This is a far cry from the original patterns we started with in Part I of this lesson!

Be sure to experiment with these sequences using:

·    All 5 patterns of the pentatonic scale
·    Hammers and pulls
·    16th note triplets (6 notes per beat)

I hope you have enjoyed this lesson and that it gives you some new ideas for soloing. If you find it difficult to play the examples in time, simply practice them without worry about the timing at first. Then once you become comfortable with the sequences you can focus on the timing.

As always practice the concepts and ideas discussed here to generate your own licks in different keys and with various positions of the pentatonic scale.

Happy jamming and see you soon!
