ExAmplE Glen Campbell Solo
[SAoclou: 1] Campbell is a master at beginning his solos with melodic fragments and this G major pentatonic lick is an example of how he will start with space and melody before exploding up the fretboard! [SAoclou: 5] A great picker, this run is just an ascending G major scale but it’s typical of Campbell’s country/bluegrass approach to soloing. [Solo: Bar 9] This phrase shows how he is always aware of the underlying chord movement and crafts his solo accordingly. Note how this motif is developed to accommodate the changes in the A minor chord throughout.
