EXAMPLE 6 rock solo
Cd track 68
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.
