  • Hi everybody!
    I'm back to the electric guitar for this lesson. I wrote this solo over a chord progression reminescent of "While my guitar gently weeps" by The Beatles. I suggest you listen to this tune.
    On the album version (The White Album) the solo was played by Eric Clapton.
    You can find more information here:
    I use some sweeping licks. So, the solo should be named.. While my guitar gently sweeps.
    :-| I'm a humorist, I know.
    Seriously, feel free to change the timing and try to adapt these licks in your own playing.
    However, this lesson is not a sweeping exercise! So I hope it will be useful also for players that are still learning this technique.
    Gear used:
    Washburn N2 -> Marshall Valvestate VS230 -> Shure SM57 mic -> PC
    I used a rotary effect (software) for guitar to add a kind of "vintage feel".

    Key: A minor
    Time signature: 4/4
    Tempo: 60 bpm
