Here’s a V- IV- I turn­around in C Mi­nor Pen­ta­tonic, adding the D (2nd) and Gb (b5th) for colour. Lot of bends hap­pen­ing here, so make sure you support them well, us­ing more than just one fin­ger. One of the key fea­tures that made SRV’s style so pow­er­ful was his strong com­mand of rhythm, not least when he played more rhythm- gui­tar-like pas­sages. The fi­nal two bars here are an ex­am­ple of that Hen­drix-in­spired border­land be­tween rhythm-play­ing and solo­ing, end­ing on a dou­ble-stop, made out of the b7th (Bb) and #9 (Eb) of the fi­nal C7#9 chord.
