Jem 7PBK In Action! JTC Solo Contest

Been awhile since I posted on here! Bit of shameless self promotion but I thought you guys and gals might get a kick out of seeing the old 7PBK do its a thang!

I absolutely love this guitar, has some serious mojo going on. It even smells special lol!

Hope you enjoy the solo and if you should feel so inclined give it a quick thumbs up here:

loved the opening legato lick. Can you break it down? specifically 0:13 to 0:19

Yep, original Paf Pros I love 'em!

Guitar is pretty much all original, has been refretted (dunlop 6100 frets) which is no surprise given the age and amount of use it gets and the lo pro edge trem in there at the moment replaced the original edge, which was pitted and worn to oblivion!

Thanks! Yep no problem:

Its E dorian position 4, using a couple of different left hand patterns to descend through the position. Rhythmically Im not really thinking about any particular sub division, just aiming for a smooth even flow of notes without it becoming blurred. The lick finishes with two sweep picked arpeggios Em7 and F#m7 both in position 4 followed by a short phrase in Em pentatonic which concludes with a pinch harmonic and wide vibrato on the 10th fret A string (G).

Hope that helps
