This one sounds so great up the neck. Pay attention to the fingerings and try some of those licks! That lick we've added in to measure 4 is so nice. We get a melodic sound without any drop thumb or excessive shifting. It also starts on the melody note. Its pentatonic run fits perfectly over that Bb chord. In measure 8 we've strayed a bit from the melody to add in a run that starts on chord notes and walks up and down the scale until we get back to the root note in the following measure.
