This is just a solo that i was just jamming on and decided to record and transcribe for you, i was listening to a lot of Wes , Farlow, and Benson when i recorded on my cheap tape recorder, notice the use of minor ideas over the minor chords and arpeggios and also the use of diminished licks over the dominant chords, i use some passing tones but i make an effort not to emphasize them by putting them on weak beats, analyze this passage and notice the applications of many theoretical ideas, things that would be typical in any jazz solo, and i made an attempt to play the changes in a manner that you can actually hear the chord changes without the chords, check it out.
