Melodic 80s Solo In The Style Of Def Leppard

Here’s a nice easy one that nonetheless is a blast to play. You’ll notice that the solo is very melodic and triumphant due to the scale choice. It starts with a wailing bend and a dive bomb before leading into a melodic line based around the E Ionian Mode (i.e. The Major Scale) using the open top E string as a drone. The solo ends with more searing bends based around the E Major Scale.

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?!
