we have a series of stacked 4th intervals (perfect and augmented 4ths), all of which remain diatonic to the scale at all times, creating a nice bit of colour. Using single fingers for each note makes it easier to achieve clarity. The run that spans the two bars before the final bar, demonstrates a really useful pattern, which clearly spells out the scale, repeating the intervals 1, 3, #4 and b7. Phrygian Dominant Ex 1 We start by exploiting the tension and release in the scale, namely the 4th - D on the 10th fret, plus the lower octave (the tension); and the 3rd - C# on the 9th fret, plus the lower octave (the release); as well as the minor 2nd - Bb on the 11th fret, plus the lower octave (the tension); and the root - A on the 10th fret, plus the lower octave (the release). Be sure to mute unwanted strings! Phrygian Dominant Ex 2 We are in 3/4 time for this descending pattern that repeats in three octaves. Use your first finger for the slides. Notice how the final scale run up to the final A note constitutes another pentatonic scale, this one consisting of intervals 1, 3, 4, 5, and b7.
