I agree with the above and add the following; this is an astounding breakthrough in guitar playing per se. The use of modes in rock was still rare, and this is one of the purest recorded examples (in this case, the G Dorian). Note the effect of those delicious long unresolved 4ths (thats a C over a G). Also note the fine legato technique in the scale runs, a technique used fleetingly before, but finding itself perfectly adabted to the heavy sustain. Hendrix and Zappa, Jim McGuinn and George Harrison had all explored modality, heavy sustain and legato techniques, but by 1970 and at only 23 yrs old Fripp had mastered them and applied them to utterly satisfying music.
