Watch the Gloomy Tuesday: Lead 2 online guitar lesson by Andy Aledort from Jam Night Vol. 3
Essential listening is Duane Allman's stellar playing on the live version of "Stormy Monday" from At Fillmore east, which influences my approach on this solo. I begin with lines based on the G major pentatonic scale (G A B D E), but also utilize the "B.B. box" which includes notes from G minor pentatonic (G Bb C D F). Duane always had an ear toward melody, so once the melodic approach is covered, I am free to move into faster lines over the five chord that played in more of a Clapton/Hendrix mode.
