A detailed analysis of the above Frank Zappa composition, including notated musical examples.

Invocation & Ritual Dance Of The Young Pumpkin

LYRICS


GUITAR SOLO #003. Key: E Minor; Changes: i-IV-i7-IV (E Minor; A/E; E Minor Seventh; A/E). This is a monstrous solo. We give you the first 50 bars of our transcription which is about one-sixth of this 304-bar fiendish solo! Towards the end, the solo morphs into a "duet" with the soprano sax. FZ's interplay with it -- and the fantastic length of this long drawn-out monochordal jam -- foreshadows some of the long, collaborative jams on Hot Rats.
