Hi guys! Welcome to my new collab! This one will be in style of Keith Richards from the Rolling Stones!
The chord progression is:
Verse: B7 - A7 - E7
Chorus: E7 - A7 - B7 - A7
http://soundcloud.com/alex-feather-akimov/keith-richards-style-collab

You can play:
E minor pentatonic

E major pentatonic

If you would like to get more creative you can play different pentatonics over the changes
B minor pentatonic over B7


A minor pentatonic over A7 chord


The tempo is 110 BPM

You have until August 7th to join!
Looking forward to hear your takes! Let me know if you have any questions or need help with anything!

damn Alex, that was really difficult! I could probably work on it for another week and still not be happy with it. Keith Richards has such a cool groove to his playing and I found it difficult to try and replicate.

Here's what I came up with -

You did a really good job! I can hear that you were trying to replicate his style! You did very well!

I know I should have incorporated Arpegios and a some silence here and there.
Instead- included a few chords here and there.
Maybe it could do for the intro...
Anyhow,.. hope you like it.

Wow very cool technique you have been using! Did you do chicken picking??? Sounds very cool!
JPBluestring
Glad you like it.
Usually I do finger picking - no pick
Less trouble with the recording studio.

Many thanks for your comments Alex.
I also liked the idea of trying to replicate the sound of Keith on this one.
I think all did well! Great Collab. (Of course the backing was A1!)

Thanks Alex.
