EXAMPLE 1 PENTATONIC SINGLE-NOTE RIFF
This single-note rhythm is based mainly on one string, like John McLaughlin, which I love doing. A style which we used to call ‘dancing around the groove’. The only thing I’ve ever had a big hit with that had a guitar part that was dancing around the groove was Sister Sledge’s He’s The Greatest Dancer. So it is sort of like that or the Diana Ross song Upside Down. I used the Roland VG8 set to a Twin amp emulation and hooked up to a Tokai Strat copy. The sound is a rich Strat tone as opposed to my typical ‘in-between’ Strat sound.
