Watch the Matador online guitar lesson by Jon Finn from 30 Melodic Modal Rock Licks You MUST Know
"Matador" is in F# Phrygian. It starts with a typical Spanish type theme incorporating 1/2 steps. The second one starts on F# to the b2. Next, it bends from C# to D back to C# 14th fret then a 16th note run. The next measure, you play an F# against a G chord which changes the sound. To finish the phrase, there are a series of notes played off the beat going downwards on the F# Phrygian scale.
