Watch the Interstate Blues: Lead 2 online guitar lesson by Andy Aledort from Jam Night Vol. 2
This solo kicks off with unison bends executed on the top two strings way up in 17th position, as a high G note on the B string is bent up one whole step to A, and heavily vibrato-ed, while the same A note is fretted conventionally on the high E string. This is followed by phrases played in a combination of straight eighths (in 12/8) and 16th notes, executed with quick pull-offs and hammer-ons in a manner consistent with Eric's soloing style. Noticed the additional use of hybrid picking as fingerpicking is brought in for the high whole-step bends on the high E string. Also of note in the repeatedly picked bent vibrato in bar 10 of the D note bent up one whole step to E. It will require solid fret-hand strength to execute this bend/vibrato with accurate intonation.
