Watch the Outrun The Train online guitar lesson by Ladd Smith from Modern Nashville Guitar

Now my favorite phrase of this song, the big 'whole tone' lick over the G/D/A/E progression at the end of the verse. What I mean by that is that this lick starts out as a very 'whole tone' inspired lick, it actually comes back into a more blues pentatonic feel as it descends. It's really important to constantly think ahead when you're playing these fast songs. I like the Chuck Berry reference here on the next droning thing, Chuck's songs were some of the first I ever really studied as a lead guitarist, without Chuck we would have no Keith Richards and the list goes on.
