Here’s what’s going on in this week’s solo:
Albert Collins loved to make a meal of a single note, often milking it way beyond what most guitarists would dare. Here, the repetitive bent A note is finally released into a classic Blues lick.
This is trickier to play than you might think: we’re more used to hammer-on and pull-off licks like this running down than going up.
More note milking! This time it’s the root note of D.

As always, below the YouTube video you’ll find the backing track to play along with, and below that, the tablature. Aren’t I nice?!
