EXAMPLE RAMP’S LETTER – ALLEn’S SoLo
Chorus 1 [Bars 1-18]
The backing track opens with a two-bar percussion intro and allen starts his solo with some natural harmonics. Pull up on the vibrato arm to play the pitches notated in the tab. The syncopated (off-beat) semi-quaver phrases may take some getting use to and playing the phrases
(d-eb-F-F#-ab-Bb-C) accurately will certainly be a challenge. The d altered scale used in bar 18 provides a lovely transition back into the G major chord. Be sure to study the video for further clarity on fingerings and articulations. and take heed of allen’s own spoken thoughts and suggestions after his video solo.
