[Bars 26–30] these last licks are more deliberately ‘flash’. the first, in bar 26 is a typical fast paced C blues scale lick. the timing of this one is tricky so don’t worry if you don’t play it exactly the same - as long as it is in time within itself and not scrappy it should be fine. the phrase starting in bar 31 is hard. take it very slowly as it might be hard to get your ear around. It uses some jazzy passing notes and might be acceptable right at the end of the song, during the fade- out perhaps. throughout the solo, look at the rhythmic framework of the phrases and in this final section, aim to be aware of the space between the licks; the emptiness between the phrases makes them more powerful when they arrive!
