bar 10 and 18 are a par­tic­u­lar trade­mark idea. Although they’re pitched and you have a rough tar­get point to aim for, the stac­cato na­ture of the first note in the phrase means it doesn’t have to be su­per pre­cise. [Bars 22-45] There are sim­ply loads of great im­pro­vised ideas in these two verses, so you should take what you can for your own ideas. Duane rolls back his vol­ume a lit­tle for a cleaner sound and tends to build dy­nam­ics and melody in the two-bar turn­around in each 12-bar se­quence. If your guitar ac­tion is set high (ish) you should not need bags of gain for lots of sus­tain.
