    Help and Advice please!

    I finally found a old video on Youtube that I used to watch all the time and influenced me a lot when I first got out of the speed trap. This is a spot between songs during a Dream Theater concert sometime in the early 90's. This is the band jamming along while Petucci nails this beautiful guitar solo. How can I go about getting into some more melodic ideas that are similiar to this vid through the first 2 mins 5 secs of it? I know the use of the blues scale and some shredding lines are further in the video but the first little bit is what is important to me right now. Any advice I would greatly appriciate.

    Grab a stack of Kansas CDs and learn all of Bobby Steinhardt's violin parts on your guitar. That's what happened to me, anyway. I have no idea who people would use nowadays.

    That melody that the guitar player is playing, right up to 2:05, is the melody of the Beatles' "Within You Without You." It is not truly improvised, in other words.
    Nobody ever shared
    what we have known...
