[Bar 6 (A7 shape #2)] This line is com­posed mainly of two arpeg­gios, an A triad C# (3rd), E (5th), A (root), and a G triad, G (root), B (3rd), D (5th). It ends at beat 3 by tar­get­ing the ma­jor 3rd (C#) of the A7 chord. [Bar 11 (A7 shape #3)] The first four notes of this line com­prise a chro­matic as­cent from a C# (the ma­jor 3rd of A7: here, played us­ing a bend) to an E note (5th of A7) via D and Eb (4th and b5th). The fol­low­ing C note marks the in­tro­duc­tion of a sour mi­nor flavour taken from the Blues and Mi­nor Pen­ta­tonic scales. The line fi­nally re­solves at the root of A7.
