[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.
