Watch the Rollin' On online guitar lesson by Joe Deloro from Blues Rock Road Trip 2
Rollin’ On is set in the mold of up-tempo Southern Rock & R&B tunes like The Allman Brother’s, Ramblin’ Man (Macon, GA) and Otis Redding’s, I Can’t Turn You Loose (Macon, GA & Memphis, TN). The background is based on A7 and features rhythm guitar, bass and drums. The overall style here is in the pedal steel/slide guitar zone. This is due to numerous slides, oblique bends (while one note is bent, another is played on a different string) and bend-releases. This gives the lead more of a vocal quality because of the slurs and long pauses between motives.
