Again we start by going over the chords. An important step every time. You must know the chords. We start with the sharp 9 and go down the pentatonic scale. Then we add the flourish. Practice this flourish idea slowly. Don't forget we have our target ending tone. Then a pull off. Pull offs are a great way to spice up your solos. On the E7 chord we use neighboring tones playing a note above and below the chord tones before playing the chord tone. Great Joe Pass style lick. Pentatonic is used over the Am7-D7 chords. Creates great tension before ending on the G chord.
