EXAMPLE2 Bernie Leadon style solo

Guitar Techniques - - PLAY | COUNTRY ROCK -

This G ma­jor Pen­ta­tonic-based solo fea­tures a few pedal-steel type dou­ble stops and bends. You’ll hear this kind of play­ing in Lyin’ Eyes, Take It Easy and Tequila Sun­rise. The over­all feel is quite re­laxed, but we’re mov­ing around the fret­board a fair bit here. Take your time and work through this, ear-mark­ing any prob­lem ar­eas, then re­hears­ing them slowly. If any­thing this solo is a lit­tle on the ‘busy’ side, as I wanted to squeeze in as many ideas as pos­si­ble. Play­ing noth­ing for a bar can be just as vi­able in a good solo – and all the Ea­gles’ gui­tarists ex­celled at cre­at­ing space and dy­nam­ics.
