Ed. Note: Chops from Hell is extremely pleased to have Santiago Dobles of AGHORA involved at the site!
This is a legato section from Satya from our debut AGHORA CD 2000. The section tab is from the solo 3:39 - 3:45. It's a legato line that uses C Dominant 7 Arpeggio flowing into C Pentatonic, then ending with C Mixo b9b13 with a little tapping slide.
