    Beautiful tone on that guitar. Great solo, some really sweet phrases.

    Edit: just had a few more listens. Love the line at bar 13. Really great.

    Thanks for listening and the encouragement. This was a worthwhile exercise for me.

    Derek, regarding the line at 13... From the lesson being able to use an Am triad over Dm, I was thinking Am blues scale and then followed that up with the same line but in Dm, i.e. Dm blues scale. That seems to work nicely. Surprising that the Eb of the Am blues scale works in this Dm dorian context. I know in my past I've seen transcriptions or transcribed parts where I think, how did that guitarist come up with those notes, an Eb over Dm?, an Am blues scale over Dm? If I could know what/how they think, the weird notes can make sense.

    Great to understand how you came up with that Eb, Fep. Brilliant. But it wasn't just the note, you placed it beautifully in a lovely triplet line. Great work!

    I must admit I've struggled with GF's backing tracks a little - and also Jamey Aebersold (I've been playing along to his So What track from a Miles Davis set). They seem to have so much syncopation and the backing tends to float over the chords and bars that I find it really hard to keep time and especially play on the off-beats. I guess I'm so used to roots music where everything is a lot more defined.

    Had to jump back into this before it slipped away for good. Quick first take on Hot Saw at the end of lunch break. Feels noodly.

    Thanks. I’m realizing that So What / Hot Saw is one chord away from being Dark Star circa 1973.

    Doesn't sound noodly to me, rather it sounds good and right in line with what the book is teaching. Thanks for posting.

    Just sort of a deadhead joke. If you’re not familiar with the Grateful Dead, especially from that era, they did a lot of really long modal jamming over a single chord.

    What do Deadheads say when the drugs wear off..?

    ... What's that awful music?

    Joking aside, I have several albums by the Dead and I enjoy them all. There's even a version of Hot Saw on The Pizza Tapes, which I often listen to.

    I stumpled upon this, got through the first 20 minutes. This looks to be interesting, I'll watch the whole thing. So What = Hot Saw = Dark Star = Wo Stah... Maybe my next take will be this Wo Stah thing.

    No rush, Mark. In a few days I'll start the March thread (the second half of this chapter), but we can feel free to keep working on/revisiting Hot Saw.
