In the next performance section we're talking about Cry For You. This is the end section of the song, and this is the one that usually goes on for a while when I'm playing it in concert. It's just D minor to B flat major 7. So we're going to illuminate a few things in here. One of the things is how I'm using mostly the D minor pentatonic, but I'm adding the ninth, so it's a penatonic +1. Sexatonic if that's a word. I'm not really sure. And I'm illuminating some things like motivic development, which is something I'm very fond of. Playing a melodic idea and developing it from there. And there's some two-note clusters that I'm playing, some scalar clusters for lack of a better term. And some bending ideas, some horizontal ideas, as always and some voice leading. And a couple of cool bending Hendrix-y things. Hopefully it's a nice musical piece and will help you create your own.
