#86 – Whipping Post – solo & tutorial (part 2)

Alright, last week I did Duane’s solo, this week it’s Dickey’s. Where Duane played entirely inside an Am pentatonic scale (with a few 9ths popping in occasionally), Dickey took a few more risks with some stuff that was deliberately outside. There are 9ths, tritones, both 13ths, even a couple major 7ths hidden in here. It feels at times like Dickey was scrambling to find his place on the neck and in the bar, but he always brings it back in.

Both of these solos present their own unique challenges, but I prefer Dickey’s for how far how he ventures from the minor pentatonic.

Give it a shot!
