EXAMPLE CARL VERHEYEN MASTERCLASS ...CONTINUED
[Bars 63-64] In these bars Carl demonstrates some lightning minor Pentatonic phrasing using semiquaver triplets. The final run, starting on the last beat of bar 63 is actually all picked, but you can employ legato technique (slurs etc) if the tempo is too challenging initially. [Bars 69 -72] This final passage shows how the minor Pentatonic can be used based on each chord: B minor Pentatonic for Bm7; A minor Pentatonic for Am7; and E minor Pentatonic (with an added 9th) for the Em7. Here though it’s used in a bluesier vibe with bent notes and flattened 5ths. We’re not sure if the G# was intended (major 3rd against E minor) but Carl did this whole solo as a first take, not even learning the track first.
