This solo is a classic that belongs to the ages. It’s exciting, energetic, and a blast to play!
Beginning on the 12th position, the solo is a memorable E Minor Pentatonic lead break. Guitarist Craig Ross avoids clichés by employing some nifty syncopations (bar 4), and the use of the E Major Pentatonic from bars 4-6. The scale takes us via a nice slide to the higher E Minor Pentatonic position in bar 7.
After the wide 3 fret bend, Ross moves back to the 12th position for some final E Minor Pentatonic runs.
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?!
