Watch the Straight On: Rhythm online guitar lesson by Joe Deloro from Blues Rock Road Trip

This lesson is loosely based on different versions of Earl King's, Come On (Let The Good Times Roll). That is, the rhythm parts are both reminiscent of Jimi Hendrix's cover version on his Electric Ladyland album. Also, the solos have a bit of that Led Zeppelin II era Jimmy Page lead influence. So there you go.
The format for this lesson is also different than the others. This time, the Rhythm 1 example is intended as a possible rhythm part for a Verse or Chorus, while the Rhythm 2 example could be used for a Chorus or Bridge to support solos. As a result, the solo lessons are all based on the Rhythm 2 part. The solos themselves are based on the E pentatonic minor generally, but are also enhanced with the major 3rds of the I and IV chords (G# and C#), as well as chromatic passing notes.
To get in deeper, be sure to listen to the sources mentioned above, and if you're not already familiar with it, Stevie Ray Vaughan's version as well. "Also, Come On is described as a Chicago R&B tune in Video 1, it should be New Orleans."
