I have never been able to follow Jerry's melodic runs of single notes. For those of you who can - is it more a matter of learning more scales, playing mixolydian or learning chord inversions all over the neck and sketching out the shapes? Both right? I loved how tuneful and well constructed his passages were - like the one below from the intro to Simple Twist of Fate - reminds me of Hoagy Carmichael the way it swings. And the way he could build drama without volume or grabbing a note and bending the heck out of it for 16 bars. Although I do like that as well. And the little chords he would play up the neck. Jerry's phrasing, solos and passing notes have always been out of my grasp. Didn't study theory - major and minor pentatonic worked on most everything else I played. Lately that has been bothering me at the ripe age of 54. Because I love how it sounds and how it feels when he hits that note that you didn't see coming but it fit so well.
