The uniqueness of the solo could be if you emphasize on the major-feel of the G major as compared to the minor feel of E minor, even though they share the same notes. Instead of staying in the E minor pentatonic box, if that is what you do, try to whip out some licks that utilizes some of the characteristics of a major scale smile.gif

Yeah, but even the change from E minor to G major should be evident, because of the different intervals between notes. The G major scale does sound different from E minor, even though they have the same note. If you have a solo in G major, it should sound happier than the E minor parts. If you have some underlying major chords, which it seems to do, that would emphasize it even more.
