Watch the Bird 'n' Some Beast: Lead 2 online guitar lesson by Andy Aledort from Jam Night Vol. 1

In this solo example, I stick with E pentatonic major through the first four bars of the solo, remaining in ninth position in bar 1 in through the first two beats of bar two, at which point I incorporate quick slides up and down the G string in order to shift positions and to yield a legato sound. A similar concept is then applied to bars 3 and 4 but working down into seventh position with descending melodies. Bars 5 and 6 are comprised of sliding sixths, two-note figures based on intervallic spans of six scale degrees, followed by three descending shifts down the fretboard to wrap up the solo in the last two bars.
