  • Hello GMC! This is my first lesson at GMC, but I hope it isn't the last one :). Today we're going to look closer at style of Ritchie Blackmore from Deep Purple era. Note that at the moment Ritchie is playing in his band called Blackmore's Night. Blackmore's Night is totally different from Deep Purple, as they're playing Renaissance music.

    Main techniques that are used in this solo are:
    -alternate picking
    -some slides
    -a bit of bending

    Chords progression of this lesson is pretty simple: G5 B5 G5 almost all the time except ending: there we have G5 B5 C5 G5

    We are going to use notes from g blues scale or g minor pentatonic with some exceptions. Also one tritone appears. Technically wise this lesson should be no problem for intermediate players. I provided couple of backing tracks (original tempo of this lesson is 75 bpm). If you have any questions, don't hesitate asking me! I will do my best to help you.

    Hope you like this lesson,
    Good luck & see you!
