If there was one improviser/composer that was hugely influential to modern fusion guitar it has to be John Coltrane. Coltrane’s sax lines, ideas and sense of rhythm just sit really well with the guitar. The quartal harmonic concepts, pentatonic cells through the changes and high velocity evoke clear inspirational lines for the creative guitar improviser and composer alike.
Today, we will take from Coltrane’s jazz timed 8th notes and double time these into semiquaver 16th note jazz fusion lines.
