Texas-Style Rhythm Guitar
Over the past few decades Texas contest-style fiddling has made inroads into most regions of North America, and wherever it goes, so goes its partner, Texas-style rhythm guitar, which, in its role as accompaniment for the highly evolved fiddle style, has developed in its own right into a sophisticated subgenre of folk guitar. An interesting situation exists in which fiddlers and guitarists, each having a life of their own, so to speak, work together in a symbiotic relationship where the head and backup blend into a complete, unified texture of melody, harmony, and rhythm. As one might expect, in addition to its special purpose in fiddle music, Texas-style rhythm guitar, in one form or another, has wide-ranging application in a myriad of divergent styles. The music of Texan Bob Wills has left an enormous impact on country music in general, and in his home state, old-timey fiddling, following the lead of pioneers like Eck Robertson and Benny Thomasson, quickly absorbed the jazzy influences in western swing with its emphasis on intricate, hot lead lines and swing rhythm. The guitarists accompanying these fiddlers, using, as far as I can tell, the early swing greats suck as Wills guitarist and arranger Eldon Shamblin for inspiration, soon developed as country swing style employing walking bass lines and passing chords. Shambling forged a new approach which combined the sophisticated harmonic and melodic structure of jazz legend Charlie Christian with the country sensibilities necessary to back an old-time musician like Wills. This sound, with varying degrees of commitment to jazz, has become the basis for contest-style rhythm. One of the more difficult requirements in Texas-style rhythm is deciding exactly which chords work and which do not. Many times the common substitutions can cause quite a bit of dissonance, but this usually works out fine because the fiddle and the guitar are going to the same end even if they take different paths while getting there. Indiscriminate alterations to the basic progression, though, result in boring patterns which obscure the individuality of a given melody. Leaning how to approach each tune in all its stylistic subtlety can only be achieved through experience. “Sally Goodin”, the quintessential contest fiddle tune, severs as an excellent place to start our investigation; the moves here are fundamental to the style and can be employed to great effect in hundreds of tunes. We will work there in A major, the most common key for “Sally Goodin”, but these same bass lines and chord substitutions can be transposed easily to any key. The melody below is almost as basic as possible, and the accompanying chord progression demonstrates the essential, unadorned harmonic rhythm with V7 (dominant) to I (tonic) cadences being the only movement that is absolutely required on the part of the rhythm section (as a matter of fact, this is precisely the way most any bluegrass or old-timey version would go). Texas-Style Rhythm Guitar.
