Watch the No Tears: Lead 1 online guitar lesson by Andy Aledort from Jam Night Vol. 2

I begin this solo with a hammer-on from the major third, E, up to G, followed by a return to E; D is then played over G/B and C over Am, so each of the notes relates directly to one of the appropriate chord tones for each chord in the progression. Over the last chord in the pattern, F, I switch things up by playing more complex improvised lines based on the C hexatonic scale (C D E F G A).
