EX­AM­PLE JAM PIECE …co ntin­ued

[Chorus 2, bars 15-26] The ex­cite­ment star ts to build, and the solo moves up to shape 4 of the A Mi­nor Pen­ta­tonic at the 12th fret. The re­peat­ing phrase in bars 17 and 18 and the big bend in bar 19 are clas­sic Clapton fare. The dou­ble-stops in bar 23 three will sound all the more ex­cit­ing if you dig in re­ally hard with the pick. [Chorus 3, bars 27-36] The solo now moves up to the ‘dusty end’ of the fret­board. Play­ing with a nice feel and good in­to­na­tion can be chal­leng­ing up here, so prac­tise these ideas slowly. Ad­mit­tedly, the ex­tra ac­cess that the Gib­son SG of­fers is a great help, par tic­u­larly over a Les Paul, but there’s no rea­son why you can’t play these ideas on any guitar.
