  • Hey GMC rockers! This lesson's influenced by the great Deep Purple live album released in 1974, where a young David Coverdale and Glen Hughes make their first appearance with the band. Other popular influences include: Van Helen's David Lee Roth, Bon Jovi, Extreme...

    The lesson begins with a typical Purple style riff. In the solo intro I play E7 arpeggio licks. The following section of the solo is based on the G Major scale. This part is melodic and expressive, and you’ll find lots of bends and long notes with vibrato. You must pay attention to the pitch of the bends, and the vibrato, to make the solo sound expressive.

    The ending is more complicated due to the legatos in the B major scale. You have to practice it slowly and concentrate on getting a very clean sound - by building speed gradually.

    Techniques:
    * Vibrato
    * Bends
    * Legato

    Scales and Arpeggios:

    E7 arpeggio
    E Minor
    B Major
    Let’s have fun!/ Lucio
