Ex­am­plE9 mi­nor rock solo

Guitar Techniques - - THE BLUES SHUFFLE -

Time for a solo! Us­ing the bridge pickup with dis­tor­tion, short de­lay and wah-wah, this is inspired by Brian robert­son’s play­ing on Thin lizzy’s live and dan­ger­ous – don’t Be­lieve a Word is a great ex­am­ple of the mi­nor blues shuf­fle. Mov­ing through dif­fer­ent po­si­tions us­ing mi­nor Pen­ta­tonic scale, this solo is all about the at­ti­tude ex­pressed by those string bends com­bined with the wah-wah. note the do­rian flavour (r-2-b3-4-5-6-b7), cour­tesy of the E nat­u­rals in bar 13.
