Watch the Breakdown 8 online guitar lesson by Andy Aledort from Slow Blues Power

Starting with the double-stop (two-note) bend at the beginning of bar 7, on beat two I move into more of a “thematic” type sound by playing a very familiar blues melody, moving straight up, and then straight back down, E minor pentatonic. No matter how crazy you might want to get with a solo, it’s always very important to include riffs that are recognizable and memorable; the best way to do this is to be sure these riffs are strong melodically as well as rhythmically. In this particular case, the riff takes advantage of the open strings available when soloing in the key of E; when allowed to sustain together, combinations of different open strings will offer fullness and a great ringing quality to your phrases.
