Watch the Flashy Jack: Lead 1 online guitar lesson by TrueFire from Rock Guitar Greatest Hits Vol. 2

One of the greatest recordings of "Jumping Jack Flash" is the cover version performed by the blues/rock guitar great Johnny Winter, released on his seminal Johnny Winter And Live LP. In this first solo, I use a JW-style approach by incorporating a combination of unison and oblique bends, along with single-note melodic patterns based on alternating between B minor and B major pentatonic, which is, of course, the standard soloing approach found in the playing of most blues and blues/rock guitarists.
