cd track 12
Our Major jam harks back to tracks like Bodhisattva and features an excitingly fast tempo. The rhythm guitar is simple and fun to play but the solo, in the style of Denny Dias, might prove challenging to play if you’ve not explored the world outside Pentatonics or the Blues scale. a key feature is to navigate the chord changes and link chord tones with scale tones and chromatic notes. The phrasing is fairly insistent and uses swung quavers, quaver triplets and the odd semi-quaver run. There’s some cool jazz vocabulary to discover here so learning this solo is worth the effort as it will expand your lick repertoire no end.
