Watch the Mystic Journey: Lead 2 online guitar lesson by Andy Aledort from Jam Night Vol. 1
The opening lines played here, which pay homage to the"Mystic" vocal melody, are based on D major pentatonic (D E F# A B), followed quickly by more complex lines, executed with quick hammer-ons, pull-offs and slides, based on D major hexatonic (D E F# G A B). Stylistically, these phrases are not unlike what you will hear Allman Brother Dickie Betts play on his classic song, "Blue Sky." After bringing sliding sixths into the picture for the five chord, A, I reintroduce the hammered harmonized thirds approach on the return to the tonic, D.
