EXAMPLE3 Eric – solo at 3’.06”

Guitar Techniques - - DEREK AND THE DOMINOS -

EGDo­ing off at a slightly dif­fer­ent tan­gent, Eric de­vel­ops this shape71 Pen­ta­tonic pAat­tern un­til the slide in bar 4, which leads to a se­ries of Al­bert King-style bends be­fore switch­ing tack to a melodic idea, lead­ing to a vari­a­tion on the clas­sic de­scend­ing blues turn­around. Tech­niques to brush up on here would be pitch­ing on string bends, vi­brato and syn­co­pa­tion and tim­ing - some­thing that Eric used with John May­all and de­vel­oped to the ‘nth’ de­gree in Cream.
