[Bar 24] Another ‘answer’ fill, this time more jazz y and using the Ab whole tone scale (Ab Bb C D E Gb) star t to the lick, with the B note on the ‘2 and’ marking the major 3rd of the G7 chord; it then moves into a descending C Aeolian (C D Eb F G Ab Bb) line. [B section (secondary melody) bars 25-33] These predominantly ‘3rds’ double-stops act as a little harmonised melody to the chords over which they’re played. Ensure these are played accurately – good timing is vital, so that the phrases sit ‘in the pocket ’. Bear in mind that the rhythmic 16th-note octave phrase from bars 31-33 is played with the thumb, and requires the correct 16th-note based ‘down-up-down-up’ approach to sound right. [Bar 34] This is the pick-up lick into the solo. Played over the G chord, it uses notes from the G Superlocrian mode (G Ab Bb Cb (B) Db Eb F).
