EXAMPLE4 Flat 5 passing note, psychedelic rock style
if you’ve never incorporated the flattened 5th into your Pentatonic solos then you’re in for a treat. This lick illustrates how much cooler your solos can sound with the introduction of little Blues scale dissonance, demonstrated here in early Clapton style. Use alternate 16th-note picking throughout and look out for the jump down to the 8th fret in the second bar. To keep this slick, play the D on the 10th fret (previous bar) with your third fretting-hand finger.
