Watch the Lazy Freeway: Solo online guitar lesson by Jeff McErlain from Blues-Rock Evolution
This tune is a mix of two of my favorite rock shuffles, Jeff Beck's "Freeway Jam" and Deep Purple's "Lazy." "Freeway Jam" is from Beck's rock-jazz fusion classic Blow By Blow, released in 1975. This all instrumental record hit #4 on the US charts, something that sounds like science fiction today.
The album and its legendary follow ups, Wired and There and Back are the blueprint for players like Joe Satriani, Eric Johnson, myself and anybody else who plays instrumental guitar.
