    The solo is based on E minor blues pentatonic :



    This solo is very simple but has a lot of dynamics! So be sure to feel it when you are playing.

    Fusion

    This is the most complicated solo of this lesson.

    The solo is based on A dorian scale :



    Solo has a lot of legato, sweeping, hammer on's and polyrhythm!
    For this lesson make sure to practice with a metronome at a very slow tempo!

    Jazz

    Chord changes for this solo are really cool : C6, Am9, Dm9, G11, C, Am7, Bm7, D7, G6, G6, F#m7, B9, E, G7#5
    I was trying to accent chord tones and make sure that all the changes are accented!
