Phrase 1 is a 4 bar T&V phrase. It features a vocal style lead that reflects the Verse melody of the original song. Creating phrases in this way, with the melody in mind, is a great way to add unity between the solo and the song. The scales employed are the A Pentatonic Minor: A,C,D,E,G,A (1,b3, 4,5,b7,8) in Motive 1, and the A Blues: A,C,D,Eb,E,G,A (1,b3, 4,b5,5,b7,8) in Motive 2. This subtle difference (switching scales between motives) is one way to develop a variation.
