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

"Guitar George" is based on the classic Dire Straits tune "Sultans of Swing". This solo is a little tricky as we're utilizing half-step bends and legato ideas quite a bit. My advice, as it always is, is to listen to the solo repeatedly and get it into your head. It's very difficult to try to learn something when you're not exactly sure what it is you're trying to learn! That sounds obvious I know, but it's quite common when trying to learn a song or solo. How will you know if you have it right if you don't know what it's supposed to sound like?
