Cd track 68

Guitar Techniques - - LEARNING ZONE -

The back­ing track for this solo al­ter­nates be­tween two chords: Fmaj7#11 and em add9. For the first chord (Fmaj#7/11) the ly­dian mode (1-2-3-#4-5-6-7) is the best (1-2-b3-4-5-6-b7). fit and for the sec­ond chord, emadd9) we lean to­wards e Do­rian Bars 1-4 are very melodic and lyri­cal and use the whammy bar to add ex­pres­sion such as scoops, vi­brato and a gar­gle. Bar 5 fea­tures sweep pick­ing on the top three strings fol­lowed by some flow­ing le­gato, which is phrased with odd group­ings; fo­cus on tim­ing here and match the rel­e­vant notes with the down­beats. Fin­ish the solo with a tapped melody which moves through the chord pro­gres­sion.
