I mean it seems you are taking them from one root to another but thats something Ive been working on with my playing now.Thanks cap.

I assume you're talking about the fill over the Em-G-D portion?
If so I pretty much play a D maj pentatonic scale with an added G. Now, those are the notes, I'm not sure what key this tune is in. I just pay attention to playing over the chords so while over Em I pay special attention to the Em triad (E, G, B) etc. This, for beginning and ending phrases as well as adding color.
If this ain't it, just be more specific.
I'll tab something out if you'd like. A riff or lick here or there. I just don't want to do go a little nuts and do a whole lead etc. And as jack straw pointed out a while back, it's best for one's own progress to at least give it a good go before asking. I don't say this in reference to you cap as much as just in general. I can tell that you put in the work.

We're all players for just that reason. To transcend time for a moment or two and be at a place where for just that bit of time something is speaking to us in some meaningful way. Thanks again.
