EXAMPLE2 Blues­break­ers/Cream solo

Guitar Techniques - - PLAY -

Play­ing a Gib­son Les Paul, SG or 335 through a cranked Mar­shall gave Eric an even fuller, more ag­gres­sive sound in the later 60s. Con­fi­dently en­ter­ing with those uni­son bends, watch for de­tails like vi­brato depth and speed – it’s a lit­tle fiercer than the ear­lier stuff. More quar­ter-tone bends and a rhyth­mic but re­laxed feel with some tra­di­tional blues mo­tifs thrown in (like bars 11-12) are the or­der of the day.
