G NATURAL MINOR SCALE - JAM OVER ERIC CLAPTON'S VERSION OF I SHOT THE SHERIFF BY BOB MARLEY

Clapton plus Martin

Although Eric Clapton is well known for his use of the pentatonic minor box shapes - a more sophisticated modern rock sound can be obtained by putting the major second (2) and the minor sixth (b6) back into the patterns.

This reintroduction of the 2nd and b6th produces the

NATURAL MINOR SCALE

(Formula 1, 2, b3, 4, 5, b6, b7)

also known as the AEOLIAN MODE.

The key of G minor has been chosen as it ties in with the Bob Marley song - I Shot the Sheriff dealt with previously-
