Bar 5 brings us to the IV (four) chord, F7, and here I continue with the “sixths” idea, transposed to the key of F and the F Mixolydian scale (F G A Bb C D Eb) and played on the first and third strings. We wind up, on beat two into beats three and four, in I (first) position, so here I play what can be analyzed as a combination of the “B.B. box” in C with F Mixolydian licks, taking advantage of the harmonic “pull” between the root chord, C, and the four chord, F.
