Car2l shxxoxwxsxuxsxxaxrxecent melodic idea he came up with. It was written to work over an F minor chord, creating the chord degrees b3, root, b3, b7, root. This is quite widely spaced and typical of Carl’s approach which eschews ‘monkey in a space suit’ stepwise shredding, for more melodic wider interval ideas. You’ll need to work on string skipping so, again, take it slowly and make sure you eliminate unwanted string noise.
