Watch the My Sad Guitar: Lead 2 online guitar lesson by Andy Aledort from Jam Night Vol. 3

To provide contrast with the first solo, I adopted a more "Johnny Winter"-type approach for this second approach to rhythm guitar. On the first Johnny Winter And album, Johnny covered an Allan Nicholls Mowtown song called, "Let the music play" that is built on a very similar chord progression and feel as "While My Guitar Gently Weeps," so it is a perfect source for inspiration when it comes to devising soloing ideas. The phrases in this solo are a little faster and flashier and more "guitaristic," so, looking at it as a second chorus of a continuous guitar solo, it provides perfect balance to the slower, more melodic approach of the first solo.
