This solo is an amalgamation of techniques and licks drawn from the styles of Dave, Adrian and Janick. The most manageable approach is to learn the licks in two to four-bar chunks and practise them slowly and accurately before connecting it all together and bringing it up to speed. [Ba3rs 1-2] This is a bluesy A minor Pentatonic lick played as a six-note phrase wh3ich displaces through the 16th-note rhythm. Bend the third string with the3third finger and play the 5th fret notes with your first finger. [BaSrOsL3O-4©] AÈlsÁ
o b¼ ased on the A minor Pentatonic scale this has the extra B and F notes suggesting A Natural minor (A-B-C-D-E-F-G). [Bars 5-8] For these unison bends you should use your third finger to bend the notes on the second string to the same pitch as the notes on the first. [Bars 9-10] Here we see fast pull-offs with the second and third fingers on the 8th and 7th frets and the first finger at the 5th fret. The final ascending passage in bars 11-12 is played along the first string using a combination of legato and alternate picking; this part will benefit from some metronome practice, gradually building up the tempo.
