Based on an em vamp again we are using the Minor Pentatonic (e-G-A-B-D) to GUITAR TECHNIQUES 2 7 3 navigate our way through this study. We start off confident with a whole-tone b7th bend catching the (D) while still holding the bend. in bar 2 we are back to single-note lines with a subtle quarter-tone bend giving us blues texture in a rockier context. Bars 2-6 contain large register jumps showing how Jimmie likes to create two separate voices on the guitar, which help with the concept of call and response. Bars 9-10 are yet another great example of how Jimmie employs the quarter-note triplet when holding an idea for a bar or more.
