  • Hi GMC! Welcome to my new lesson. This one is a clean solo influenced by the RHCP's guitar player John Frusciante. We've talked a lot about him in the previous lessons so now we will just concentrate in this tune. You'll hear some vibes of the Jimi Hendrix's music (I'm writing this text hearing the song "All along the watchtower" :). Hendrix is one of John's main influences, so we can call this a lesson inspired by Hendrix and Frusciante.

    The backing track is Am - G - F and I combine A minor aeloian with A pentatonic minor scale. You'll find some interesting rock/blues licks, melodies and octave chords that (I hope) will inspire you to create your own clean solos.

    Learn the licks, practice and incorporate them to your playing and then try to create your own variations over the backing track.

    Good luck!
