We begin this track with more double stop ideas to help us approach things from a different angle. The use of open strings as we're ascending the E major scale really help brighten things up into some bends that are target notes, sounding very melodic.

We move into the open E position to work around an E major arpeggio and land on the F# target note and do some bending to create some breathing room as we descend a melodic arpeggio based in Emaj and back to the root.
