In­tro [Bars 1 to 8] As Allen ex­plains in the video, th­ese open­ing bars are tricky to nav­i­gate so a clear strat­egy is worked out in ad­vance. The fast phrase in bar three

Bb is a ‘sheet of sound’ style run de­signed to fin­ish on the tar­get tone of E in bar 4, which be­comes the ma­jor 3rd of the C/ chord. The notes in this run come from the F# Mixoly­dian scale (F#-G#-A#-B-C#-D#-E) and Allen uses a handy ‘three-notes-per-string’ fin­ger­ing, which stretches across all six strings.
