Of course Bob does alot of inversions, passing tones, chromatic scale runs, substitutions, syncopation, hammer-ons, pull-offs, and runs.
Be creative and stay on the beat and you'll have a good jam going. You'll find tones and licks that are off the wall but make sense musically. Don't worry about sounding "exactly like Bob". Find your own sound and have fun.
