Fig. 4b note: this is the basic core pattern, you can play with it with Hammers and
and adding passing tones such as G string 7th Fret.  I count 4 beats of 16th notes starting
the D string 5th fret note the 1st time through this riff.  To get them all I need a 
mp3 player that would allow me to zero in on that Pattern.  Its basically an arpeggio
Iím happy with the sound I get using the technique described above. I.e., itís close enough

I might not give the answers that you want me to

I might not give the answers that you want me to

Fig. 5 note: here is where you let your personal style shine,
	     the albumís lead revolves around the pentatonic
             shown in Fig. 6, just have fun and play away.
             Rhythm guitar and the Bass stick to E and A
             pattern shown in figure 5.

Fig. 6 note: based on the classic blues scale used in a million different
             Leads.  Freddie King was known to use only these 5 notes
             In many leads using bends and trills only.

  Fig. 7  note: Let open Eís ring, you can have a lot of fun with these
          Patterns in your own creative playing, the use of the 7th position
          Em is haunting when paired with the diatic D-F#, with the low E
          Ringing to create a very interesting tension - its basically an
          Edim/9.  Fun stuff

Final note:  The song illustrates the importance of using your left
             and right hands in a way to make it almost sound like
             one guitar is two.  The left hand uses hammer-ons and
             pull-offs, the right hand uses palm muting and a very
             funky, loose wrist style. Practice this and youíll
             see it isnít as hard as it sounds and it will
             improve your overall playing.
