SCARLET BEGONIAS > FIRE ON THE MOUNTAIN SEGMENT Key: B Scale: B Mixolydian (Either, vibrato slowly)
|---------------------------||---7~~~---9--7~~~---5~~~---||---8~~~---9--8~~~---6~~~---||---9~~~---9--9~~~---7~~~---||---------------------------||---------------------------|
Slow the pace of playing down a whole bunch, both Bobby and Jerry parts should just be B mixolydian segments, use lots of vibratos.
Small Example:|---------------11------------------------||---12~---10h12----12-10-9----------------||--------------------------11-8~-8--6/8---||-----------------------------------------||-----------------------------------------||-----------------------------------------|
Have all of the string/key instruments aside from one of the guitar parts stop playing awhile, and start a B -> A progression(Fire on the Mountain)
Example: B A|--------7--------------------------------||---7~-----9p7--------5~-------4/5--4/5---||---8~---------9-8-9--6~-------5/6--5/6---||---9~----------------7~-------6/7--6/7---||-----------------------------------------||-----------------------------------------|
After a couple measures of that, have the rest of the strings/keys come in, now on a B>A which starts Fire on the Mountain FIRE ON THE MOUNTAIN Bobby Riff (Throughout most of the song)
B A|---------x-7--7------7-----7-------x-5--5-x-x-x------x-5-5---||--------x-------7------7----------x-------x-x-x-----x--------||-------x--------8------8---------x--------x-x-x----x---------||---9--x-----------9------9----7-x---------x-x-x-7-x----------||-------------------------------------------------------------||-------------------------------------------------------------|
Repeat that, mix it up all you want, that's just the main structure of it. Phil Riff
|-------------------------------------------------------||-------9--9------9-----9-----7--7----------------------||------------9------9-----------------7-7-5-7-5---------||---7----------7------7----5--------------------5-6-7---|
Once again, repeat and mix up Jerry Intro

Play that four times, once again, mix it up a bit (Volume up and wah on)

Jerry Chorus(Wah pedal on) B A|-------------------------------------------||---------7-7---------------------5-5-------||---------8-8---------------------6-6-------||---------9-9---------------------7-7-------||-------------------------------------------||-------------------------------------------| Fire..........Fire on the Mountain......
All of Jerry's soloing is in B mixolydian, put a lot of emphasis on B when needed, and on A when needed, makes it sound beautiful. Jerry Fire Outro (first)

Repeat four times, mix it up a bit Jerry Scarlet -> Fire Outro
