On with the show into section 3!

The first thing you're going to need to be aware of is the change of meter here from 6/8 to 5/8. It may feel a little unusual at first so I would suggest watching the video to really digest how these sections work together. For this kind of meter you really need to 'feel' where the beats occur. Once you have that instilled into your mind and body you will not have to think about it; just feel it.

Another thing you mustn't do is lose track with the drums. Stay aware with what's happening in the rhythm section at all times and that will help you to get into the groove that you need.

Notice the drum pattern occurring simultaneously with the ascending pentatonic sequence in bar 26. I cannot stress enough how important it is to be aware of the rhythm section. If you are not, you may as well be playing on your own without the band.

OK, deep breath now...............
