Watch the Home On The Grange: Lead 1 online guitar lesson by Andy Aledort from Jam Night Vol. 1

The lines in this solo are based on the A blues scale (A C D Eb E G) with the ninth, B, and the sixth, F#, included. I begin with a bent vibrato of G up to A and get a bit of the edge of the thumb into the pick attack in order to sound the pinch harmonic. Notice the generous use of pull-offs throughout the first half of the solo. The second half of the solo begins with repeated whole-step bends of D up to E on the A string, and here I move the pick up and down the length of the strings in order to produce different harmonics, or whistlers, as Danny Gatton would call them.
