Watch the Trampin' Down online guitar lesson by David Grissom from Open Road Blues
Now let’s break down the solo into its individual choruses. The first chorus of “Trampin’ Down” is based in the Blues Scale again, however using hybrid picking to add in an open B string and allowing it to ring. It is a good idea to use this technique to exploit the chords and get the most out of them. The next chorus follows the lead of Albert Collins, popping the strings with my middle finger and bending to emulate his sound. The third chorus brings back the open B string and hybrid picking from the first section, this time on a higher register.
