                           BRUSH WITH THE BLUES - JEFF BECK
                           ( from his album WHO ELSE - 1999)


This allows to make a good start with that tune very rich in wonderful blues sentences.
Sounds easy to tab, but as soon as you play it, you feel how much the Master's touch
is missing. As it is illusory to tab Jeff's full delirium it is a good opportunity to
improvise a solo in minor pentatonic flat B though the Master does not limit himself to
5 notes of course ! If necessary you will find all the positions on the neck for that
scale on my website whose URL is here above.


Legend :
h   : hammer-on
p   : pull-off
b/\ : bend up and down
^^^^: vibrato/tremolo (much used !)
\__ : depressing vibrato (to make ring like it must! :-)
\   : slide down

The bass must be tuned in flat E (Eb)
