Watch the Crossroads Groove: 1 online guitar lesson by Andy Aledort from Progressive Blues Power

Cream's live version of the Robert Johnson classic, "Crossroads" (originally titled "Cross Road Blues") is essential learning for every aspiring blues and blues/rock guitarist. This solo excerpt is played over a similar backing track, and on it my goal is to connect scale positions in a musical manner, starting in second position and then slowly progressing up the board.
