Solo Sections:

When I have time, I'll work on transcribing the solo in the recording.
I should mention that the bassist improvises over this solo.
This means that every time they play this song he does something different.
On this tab I'll show you some tricks you can use to make your own solo.

D Minor Blues Scale (2 octaves):

|D F G G# A C D F G Ab A C D |
G|—————————————————————10—12—13—14—17—19—|
D|———————————————10—12———————————————————|
A|——————10—11—12—————————————————————————|
E|10—13——————————————————————————————————|

*There are other places on the neck where these notes exist*

*G# and Ab are the same note*

D minor Blues Scale (in Octaves):

|D D F F G G G# G# A A C C D D |
G|———7—————10————12————13————14————17————19—|
D|——————————————————————————————————————————|
A|5—————8—————10————11————12————15————17————|
E|——————————————————————————————————————————|

D Chromatic Scale (1 octave):

|D Eb E F F# G G# A Bb B C C# D |
G|———————————————————————————4——5——6——7——|
D|———————————————5——6——7——8——————————————|
A|———6——7——8——9——————————————————————————|
E|10—————————————————————————————————————|

Another thing that he does is moves chromatically in sequence.
This means that he'll take a shape and move that shape around the neck.
here's an example of what I mean:

|Shape |moving that shape
G|———11—|11————10————9—————8—————7—————6—————7———————————|
D|12————|———12————11————10————9—————8—————7——————————————|
A|——————|————————————————————————————————————————————————|
E|——————|————————————————————————————————————————————————|
|1 e + a 2 e + a 3 e + a 4 e + a |

I know it seems like I'm trying to avoid tabbing out the actual solo,
but the truth is that if you practice some of these techniques,
you'll realize that you have the tools to build your own solo.

I hope this has been helpful.
Please give me constructive criticism.
thanks,
