Watch the Breakdown 4 online guitar lesson by Andy Aledort from Slow Blues Power

Bar 10 is played over the IV (four) chord, C7, and here, I move back into fast G minor pentatonic phrases that roll straight through bar 11. You will find that it takes a bit of fret-hand strength to sound these phrases properly; keep in mind that Albert King tuned his strings down one and a half steps, so the bends and vibratos were easier to execute. Also, he played a right-handed guitar left-handed, meaning that the strings were upside down, with the skinniest string up towards the ceiling and the fattest string down by the floor. When Albert executed his bends on the high E string, he was always pulling the string down, as opposed to pushing the string up, as one has to do with a guitar strung normally.
