Watch the Messin' #1 online guitar lesson by Jeff McErlain from Solo Factory: Chicago Blues
In Messin' #1 I am paying homage to Chicago blues legend Buddy Guy. On this solo we are mixing licks "Up High", "The Staple" and "Bendy V" and mainly sticking to the A minor pentatonic scale as Buddy normally would. The feel of the tune is mixture of "Messin' With the Kid" and "Country Girl" by Buddy and Junior Wells. To me it's pretty obvious where Jimi Hendrix spent some of his time learning. This solo is all about the bends and feel.
