If I could choose one solo for someone struggling to “get it”, it’d be this solo. It’s dripping with feel and with just a few phrases it really allows you to focus on the feel.
This song is played tuned down a half step, but I’m in standard tuning so I’m thinking about it in Eb. It only incorporates the G Pentatonic Shape, E Pentatonic Shape and C Pentatonic Shape. While the last phrase has the crazy connecting bend you can always just switch strings instead of ‘combining’ strings.
