Watch the Inhale online guitar lesson by Jeff McErlain from Beginner Blues-Rock Soloing

As I mentioned in the video, this is the same chord progression as Neil Young's "Down by the River". It's also the chord progression I used for all of the lick studies, although those were in D minor. That progression was Dm to G7, so we can already see how the same chord progression can sound very different depending on the groove. I would say the most important note of this whole solo is the first one. Spend time perfecting getting that whole step bend in tune with some nice vibrato. That is the key!
