Eyes of the World


The two main solo sections in Eyes of the World are nearly the same. The first solo simply alternates between Emaj7 and Bm, and the second solo tacks an A chord on to the end.

The Emaj7 chord calls for the E ionian mode in this case, and the Bm chord calls for the B dorian mode, which is made up of the same notes as E mixolydian. And you may then notice that, really, only one note from the scale needs to change in order to accommodate the chords…use a D# over the Emaj7 chord, and a D over the Bm chord. Pro tip: if you try to target that note right at the moment that the chord changes, it’ll really sound like you know what you’re doing.
