    It's easy when you use symmetrical quartal chords, it sounds jazzy out but it isn't, a very soft "out",

    these 5 chords work over all three of the Wicked Games chords, use them to play pentatonic melodies and solos, chord solos. Go wicked, play the games

    Bm, A, E
    --------------------------------
    -3----5----7---10----12----15 <<< B minor pent
    -2----4----6----9-----11----14 to maintain the stacking of 4ths (quartal)
    -2----4----6----9-----11----14 ditto (ditto)
    --------------------------------
    --------------------------------

    A simple B minor pentatonic chord scale with a mild jazz feel, enjoy

    @Mellencaster - It certainly has the right atmosphere! The right bends, the right touch of whammy, the right reverb, it's all right!
    @Squier by Squier - The wah demon says "wah" and mutters along in search of wah. A cool listen.
    @Mjark - Pretty close to the original with some nice flourishes!
    @fendrguitplayr - Expressive bends. Two elvin thieves are arguing in the moonlight about who should go over the wall first.
    @xtelesquirex - The octaves work nicely and I like the rhythm part too. Sweet tone and lines with a sort of marching behind it.
    @bigbreak - One can't go wrong with steel guitar and fiddle! It sounds like you redid the drums too.
    @Peegoo - Just a lovely tribute. What more can I say?
    @ASATKat - Nice crunchy tone and an interesting reinterpretation of the melody.
    @G-52 - I like the repeating figure. This a whole new take on the song. Most cool!
    @ghostchord - The discussion you started about the key was very productive. The one thing we determined without doubt is that this is definitely not in B minor. Dorian maybe, but not aeolian, for sure! And playng in A certainly worked.

    @NWinther - Interesting melodies. You show that there are lots of wicked possibilities in this progression.
    @bigbreak - Another interesting track!
    @Squier by Squier - This take has a sort of cat wail tone, wandering in the back alley looking for love and tunafish.
    @Mikejazz - There is something so attractive about lush reverb and a whammy bar! Very cool take.

    I dig the tone, the whammy, and your ideas are very melodic and at times intervalic.
    Again very nice effects, as it drifts away,,,

    I used a shape similiar to those for one of the guitar tracks I added. But only for the E chord.



    I've never used it the way you're talking about. I gotta ponder the chord-scale you posted. That is pretty darn cool! Thanks.

    @Mikejazz - nice bluesy rendition, beautiful arpeggios
    @Alan L Cole - that was really enjoyable Alan, great riffage as always; really cool melody/harmony with the second guitar

    Mikejazz Lovely tone and sweet bluesy feel with alternating between the original version. Enjoyable listen.
    Alan L Cole Melodic and dynamic phrasing, Alan. The second guitar intertwines well with the lead.

    My last effort, clean,

    I exclusively used the quartal pentatonic chord scale for all chords and arps I played here.

    I think my delay is not set properly, a bit too fast, damn, sorry, normally I'd redo it but I want to move on to Gershwin.

    Example chord scale usage,
