Beautiful, Tyrone. As simple as that solo is (even with that outside note) it's as close to perfection as you can get...because it's effective.

Thanks for the detailed analysis!

Tryone - have to agree with Peegoo, it is an excellent solo and you covered it well. This is one I can sink my fledgling pentatonic understanding into. The explanation of the relevance of the notes of the scale to the notes of the chords, totally a moment of revelation. Thanks for sharing!

Thanks Mario and Geno. This is both a lesson on how effective the pentatonics can be but also how limited. They are a wonderful tool, one never graduates from them, they always have a huge role in rock, blues, country, r/b, and even some in jazz as well. But if you can spell or work out the notes in the chords underneath, you will find ones that aren't contained in the pentatonic scale, save for the C and Am chords which are both represented in their entirety.

I use pentatonics for dang near everything. I'll slip in none scalar notes here and there as needed. It produces a more "modern" sound to my ear.
