I know I should be resting my left hand and wrist today, but I just couldn't resist...that Les Paul was sitting there, staring at me with a tear in her eye, saying "Come play with me."
Anyway, here is an example of why I do it my way.
A few minutes ago...I was messing around again with the Blackmore backing track and instead of playing in G minor pentatonic and G natural Minor, I decide to use the Bb Ionian mode and I really love the flavour it gave the overall sound, so I clicked record to prevent me for forgetting it.
I will definitely be using this little riff in a song of my own.
Here is a short 18 second (439 kb) clip if anyone wants to hear the results.
Play it cranked up as high as you can, hehe.
