Watch the I Went Down Easy online guitar lesson by Kelly Richey from Blues Grit
Breakdown of Rhythm and Lead Guitar Solo Highlights. This slow tempo 12 Bar Blues song presents an excellent opportunity to place your focus on a number of soloing techniques. Make sure that you take your time and really work each of the techniques presented in this song to make them your own. It's important to practice both rhythm and lead guitar to the jam track included in this section. I would like to challenge you to break this solo down into smaller sections and learn it note for note, then look for ways to incorporate these riffs into all aspects of your playing. Don’t forget to warm up daily with at least one of the finger exercises, playing with a click to maintain your timing. Try to practice hard for 30 minutes a day, and then play to have fun. Never practice to the point of pain! When you feel like you’ve got these concepts down, move to the next song in this series.
