I was just wondering how you would go about improvising over back in black. I've just been playing through the solo but am curious.

So far my guess is it's a pentatonic with some chromatics thrown in? Anyone care to correct me?

How would you guys go about improvising over it?

* EHX Small Clone

Shoot me, but i dont know the song. Find out the key of the solo, then work your way up from there. A good start is always pentatonics as mentioned above. Then if you're comfortable with it, add some flavor notes.

The solo is entirely written in Em pentatonic using mainly "off the shelf" licks - by which i mean standard rock licks which work in almost all contexts. I can see one example of the blue note in the solo, beyond that entirely pentatonic with a bit of bending.

EDIT: in the last bar he uses a natural 6th, you could use those in small quantities, tey sound quite 'blues'

E minor pentatonic and blues are basically it. One thing you'll have to listen for and get down are the major pentatonic licks Angus uses. I can't remember off the top of my head if theres much of it in Back In Black, i dont think so.. but Angus is great at mixing major/minor pentatonic.
