In this free transcription of Kurt Rosenwinkel’s solo on “View From Moscow” from the album The Remedy, you will find many examples of his fascinating pentatonic and intervalic style of guitar improvisation.
In measures 29-30, you will find a great example of pentatonic shapes (Shapes based on the pentatonic scale.) Rather than focusing on one scale, Kurt combines pentatonic shapes from different pentatonic scales, adding notes in between to give his lines more life.
In measures 42-43, he will encounter an incredible intervalic line. He is essentially taking a nicely voiced canto style voicing and arpeggiating it. Check it out!
