The Flat Five Substitution - part 6

Previous page: The Flat Five Substitution - part 5 Next page: The Flat Five Substitution - part 7

I remind you that these chords are not full 7th chords. We have removed either the 5th or the root from the chords. The dominant7 chord without the root is really a dim chord that function as a dominant7. In our context, a C#dim may function as an A7, and Gdim may function as Eb7.

Tritone on 4th and 3rd string

Now we are back to where we started: Chords with the tritones on the 4th and 3rd strings. But as you will see, there are a few more hords than the ones we have covered so far.

Still in A7 / Eb7, we find the tritone in two positions: 5th fret on 4th string and 6th on 3rd, and then at 11th fret at 4th and 12th fret on the 3rd string.

A7 Eb7 (Gdim) A7 (C#dim) Eb7

4 fr 4 fr 5 fr 5 fr
A7 (C#dim) Eb7 A7 Eb7 (Gdim)

Tritone on 3rd and 2nd string

As the inteval between the 3rd and 2nd string is a major third, and not a perfect fourht, as it is between the other strings, the shape here is different.

With the chosen chords, the first tritone is on 3rd string 6th fret and 2nd string 8th fret, and the second on 3rd string 12th fret and 2nd string 14th fret. When reaching 12th fret, we can also go down one octave, and we have the tritone on open 3rd string and 2nd string 2nd fret. But as chords with open strings are not moveable, we stick to the 12/14th fret.

Tritone on 5th and 6th fret

A7 Eb7 (Gdim) A7 (C#dim) Eb7

For chords with tritones on string 2 and 1, and some other tritone shapes, go to part 7.

Live at Montreux 1986
Eric Claptons status as a guitar hero is unmatched by anyone else. Still in his late teens his fans nicknamed him God and he is still regarded with both awe and reverence by fellow guitarists and music fans alike. This concert from the Montreux Festival in 1986 came shortly before the release of his August album later that year and features the main musicians who would also appear on the album namely Phil Collins on drums (who also produced the album) long-time collaborator Nathan East on bass and Greg Phillinganes on keyboards.
