Watch the Sky Blue: Lead 1 online guitar lesson by Andy Aledort from Jam Night Vol. 1

For this first solo pass, I begin with a phrase clearly based on E major pentatonic, but make direct reference to the four chord, A, with the slide down to C#, the major third of A, at the beginning of bar two. Keep in mind that this progression is built from alternating bars of E and A, so it's always good to accentuate triadic chord tones for each chord in your solo lines. Another element in this solo is the use of quick slides through different scale positions of E major pentatonic, so memorizing this solo will help you in the understanding of these different scale positions a well as how to transition easily from one to another.
