GO TO: http://www.andrewwasson.com/ Andrew Wasson of Creative Guitar Studio answers a viewers question... Q: I really like those 60's R&B sounds like Wilson Pickett, Booker T. & the MG's of course Jimi Hendrix and Keith Richards too. I've noticed they all seem to use much of the same scale sounds. I recently saw a local guitarist jamming this music at a club and he only used a small shape around each chord to add fills and to solo. He sounded great, in fact -- he sounded quite a lot like Jimi Hendrix. Is there a certain magic shape Hendrix and other guitar players in this style use to play riffs and to solo around a songs' chords? - Brodie, LasVegas Nevada. A: Classic R&B and Rock N Roll from the 60's had a nice way of adding in cool filler notes around chord changes. A good deal of these notes were from the pentatonic scale. But, rather than playing the scale as it would likely be shown in most guitar lesson books, many of these players used compact 5-Note shapes. There were usually clustered around those standard Major & Dominant chord voicings found off of 6th & 5th string roots.
