EXAMPLE4 DuanE – solo at 4’.13”

Guitar Techniques - - DEREK AND THE DOMINOS -

Tuned to open E, this first solo demon­strates Duane’s re­laxed ap­proach – none of that chomp­ing at the bit ‘here-are-all-my-licks’ ap­proach one of­ten hears at a blues jam. This is where your abil­ity to pitch be­comes ex­tremely im­por­tant, par­tic­u­larly when work­ing along one string, as in bars 7 and 8. Flat­ten your fret­ting fin­gers lightly onto the strings behind the slide to keep things sound­ing clear, and to pre­vent any un­wanted notes from ring­ing out.
