Okay, here’s that note – ac­tu­ally held for just un­der two bars on the orig­i­nal, though lis­ten­ing to the fade tells us it could have gone longer (we’ve put in a sub­tle hi-hat to help keep time). a fi­nal state­ment of the theme leads to the outro. Keep your eye on pitch­ing, grace notes, vi­brato and tim­ing.

We’re into live at read­ing ter­ri­tory. de­liv­ery is con­fi­dent, peak­ing at bar 51 for a fast Pen­ta­tonic lick. The ef­fect is more im­por­tant than com­plete ac­cu­racy, and Gary used to say his speed came from ‘pure energy’ rather than slav­ish rep­e­ti­tion. The en­su­ing bends will strengthen up your fin­gers too!
